ATI is showing off these prototype gold-plated .22 AK-47 and MP-5 clones. The shiny plating is real gold (I asked) and the AK’s stock is made of some really nice walnut. I don’t care; I wouldn’t be caught dead with one of these monstrosities. I wouldn’t even use one in Modern Warfare 3. Maybe these prototypes are auditioning for a new reality series called “Pimp My Rifle.” Or maybe they’re just tasteless. Either way, they made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. Flame on.
