SHOT 2012: Anti-Zombie Chainsaw Pic Rail Attachment

Finally, someone has developed a rail-attach chainsaw for anti-zombie work. Frankly, it’s overdue, so kudos to Doublestar for finally getting it done. Known as the Zombie X (for Zombie Exterminator), Doublestar had this display out for those of you preparing for the Zombiepocalypse at the Doublestar Booth. This thing has a separate power/activation and a battery at the butt of the Kalash it mounts to (it will also mount to an AR, though it might be a little much weight to add to an M249). The chainsaw is fully functional and has its own EOTech sight (there’s a separate optic for the rifle itself). No word as to whether they’ve considered replacing the EOTech with  one of those lasers you see on fancy saws at the hardware stores (you know, the ones that show where the cut line is).

Keep in mind if you do use a chainsaw during a zombiepocalyptic event, you must wear a full face mask, not just eye pro. You think a money shot in the dirty movies is gross? Try avoiding the infection (and vomiting) sure to follow when you get a face full of zombie gore after carving it into pieces.

Currently the Zombie-X is not for sale. This prototype was built for FEMA, Homeland Security Zombie Division and the SHOT Show only. If you actually want one, you’ll need to contact Doublestar. Hopefully the production models (since they build the full rifle in addition to the chainsaw pic-rail attachment) will come with a BattleComp.

    This was done several years ago by a private individual after being inspired/ inspiring the original Gears of War trailer.

    If this isn’t outlawed by The Geneva Convention already I’m sure it will be shortly.

    Forgive my ignorance (kind of of topic). Anybody know the manufacturer for that particular AK? Thanks!!!

    Sorry, reading comprehension fail on my part (Doublestar).

    AK w/chainsaw attachment = uber cool.
    AK w/chainsaw attachment and zombie badging = uber gay

    Smeg the Geneva Convention. They’re zombie chow. And they know it.

    I want one. (Ahem. 24 volt electrical system, please).

    (he said, drooling all over the keyboard….)
    Come to think of it, if I can’t get a real one, the next best thing would be a T-Shirt with a People for the Unethical Treatment of Zombies logo on the front, and a full colour picture of this masterpiece (1 to 1 scale) on the back.
    Another mission for the Mil Spec Monkeys, I think.

    Hooah!

    Great post at SHOT 2012: Anti-Zombie Chainsaw Pic Rail Attachment Tactical Fanboy. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info specifically the last part :) I care for such info much. I was looking for this particular info for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

    Food for thought.

  14. Only thing to be aware of is the cord is slightly shorter than original. It is not too short by any means but it is shorter by a foot or so. So if you need this for a lengthy reach then make sure you get an extension cord or buy something else.
