Sunday Gunday: Top 10 Dumbest Gun Accessories Ever Devised

dumbest gun accessories

Some gun accessories are just useless gimmicks that eat your hard-earned cash.

Here are the 10 dumbest gun accessories ever. Do you think any of these have a practical use?

10. The pistol bayonet

If you forget this thing's mounted to your pistol when you go to re-holster it, and it's going to leave a lasting impression. Long gone are the days of single-shot pistols and cutlasses mounted to them for repelling pirates.

9. Axe attachment for your shotgun

Your shotgun is not built to take the force of a swinging axe. That's a good way to thoroughly damage any weapon and will certainly void any factory warranty.

8. Glock pistol attachment for your AR-15 rifle

The big question is why?

7. Spade trigger for the AR-15 rifle

What possible good can that do anyone?

6. Picatinny rail mag holder

A spare mag clamped to your pistol would be a useless handle. Also, it's a great way to get in hot water with some of the lame gun laws out there. Run away as fast as you can from this worthless product.

5. GoPro Camera mount for your pistol

Would the camera survive the muzzle blasts? Isn't it bulky and in the way?

4. Another pistol clamp for a "tacticool" rifle...

How do you even sight this thing in?

3. The rifle chainsaw

Well, if you need to cut down zombies or you're a part-time tactical lumberjack, this is something you need. For the rest of us, no.

2. A pistol magazine dagger

Come on, how can this even be useful?

1. Duct-taped accessories

Be it knives, flashlights or other items, skip the duct tape. Just say no to duct tape.
