The golden assault rifle,studded with diamonds was seized during a raid on a ranch reportedly owned by drug traffickers in Honduras.
The jewel-encrusted machine gun, which comes with two silver magazines, has an estimated worth of $50,000.
This however isn’t the first time “precious guns” have been retrieved by the police from criminals. Sometime in 2010, Mexican soldiers seized an arsenal of gold-plated and diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel in Mexico. Three of the assault rifles are almost entirely gold-plated and there was even a silencer plated with gold. One particularly image-conscious gangster has made his pistol unique by adding rows of gaudy red and green jewels and a Ferrari logo.
