The Bang-Bang Handle Turns Your Door Knob With a Russian Pistol

I challenge anyone to find a door handle/knob badder than the Bang-Bang Handle. The Bang-Bang Handle replaces the traditional door handle with a pistol -- the 9 mm Makarov, to be specific.

The Bang-Bang Handle was designed by Nikita Kovalev and is a tribute to the Russian armed forces and law enforcement. (The Makarov is the official sidearm of both). The handle looks about as real as it gets and comes in a variety of colors. A door handle in the shape of a pistol may seem like a design that encourages violence, but Kovalev's creation seems to be nothing more than harmless fun. No one would ever want to stare down the barrel of a Makarov -- opening a door with one is another story altogether. Stats for Firearm Door Openers Trending: Older & Mild
