Over time I've done stories about the wealthy's love for gold and precious stones, resulting in them owning bejewelled phones, laptops, gold shirt, and even ingesting edible gold.
But with the rich,
Some people have too much
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. Lol! What people would so when they have too much money!
See pictures of golden guns and rifles after the cut.
Handle with care: This gun is so bejewelled that even the trigger has diamonds set in it
Large arsenal: Mexican soldiers who carried out the raid found more than 30 weapons that had been 'pimped' with silver, gold and diamonds
Dazzling: The barrel of one weapon sparkles with the gleam of small diamonds
Silver heat: Even the ammunition magazines were covered with silver
Some of the weapons, snatched from the notorious Valencia gang, were almost entirely golf and silver-plated
