Tired of Value Paks, Brownells Rolls Out The Barrels

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Because there’s never enough dakka, Federal is now offering bulk barrels of ammo. The full release can be read below:

GRINNELL, Iowa (December 13, 2018) – Just in time for Christmas, Brownells is offering up the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for someone who has everything – Bulk Barrels of Ammo in 5.56 and 7.62X51.

Filled to the brim with either 12,500 rounds of XM855 5.56mm NATO, or 7,500 rounds of XM80 7.62X51 NATO ammunition, the metal Bulk Barrels are painted an attractive, eye-catching shade of yellow and sport a patriotic image of a majestic American bald eagle soaring on outstretched wings, its talons fully extended.

Too enormous to serve as stocking stuffers, the barrels make ideal pickup-truck bed stuffers, and allow customers to give the gift of Freedom in bulk to friends and loved ones.

Perfect for use in AR-15-style firearms – often referred to as “America’s Rifle” – the 12,500- round barrel of 5.56 can fill 416 standard-capacity, 30-round magazines all the way up to the very tip top, with 20 rounds still left over.

For shooters who enjoy 30-caliber-power, the 7,500-round barrel of XM80 7.62X51 can jam- pack 375 standard-capacity 20-round magazines for full-size battle rifles like the M14, G3 or FAL – also known as the “Right Arm of the Free World.”

#100-010-469. Bulk Barrel 5.56 NATO XM855, 12,500 rounds. $3,900 on sale

#100-032-801. Bulk Barrel 7.62X51 NATO XM80, 7,500 rounds. $4,050 on sale

Manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant to exacting standards, both calibers of ammo have non-corrosive primers and are topped with full metal jacket projectiles. The boxer- primed cases are easily reloadable, allowing multiple reuse for maximum liberty and sustainable recycling of naturally-occurring Earth metals.

Converted by S&H Arms MFC Co. of Owasso, OK, this package consists of three fully-transferable Class III MP5 rifles, with consecutive serial numbers.

Entertainment Earth – Han Solo Carbonite Costume

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

It’s a bit early for Halloween costume ideas, but if you’re looking to dress up and surplus fatigues and gear aren’t looking too appealing, then why not give the classic ‘roguish-smuggler-encased-in-carbonate’ look a try? Available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth, this Han Solo in Carobonite costume is pretty self-explanatory. It consists of an inflatable carbonite slab with battery-operated fan, grey gloves, and a Han Solo in carbonite mask.

PSA – Poop Flinging Gremlins AR-15 Lower Receiver

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

About a decade couple months ago, an irate Arfcom poster made their displeasure with Palmetto State Armory’s business practices known through a series of posts in a thread, the high of which was reached when said poster used the phrase “poop flinging gremlins”, leveled presumably at a number of other posters in the thread.

PSA decided to roll with the phrase, and later came out with a lower inspired by that post. It features Spike from Gremlins, poo in hand, engraved on the magwell, and selector switch markings labeled: ‘No Poop’, ‘Poop’, and ‘Fling Poop’. Plus, the S/N is prefaced with the letters POOP.

This lower is currently available for purchase from PSA (in-stock at the time of writing), and is sure to go fairly quick, so get one for yourself while you can.

palmettostatearmory.com/psa-ar-15-stripped-poop-flinging-gremlin-lower-receiver

Edit: As pointed out by reader comment, the “poop flinging gremlins” comment wasn’t made over a decade ago, but rather this past May. The poster’s join date was confused for the post date, hence the mistake. The article above has been corrected to reflect this information.

Panacea X – ‘Killsaw’ Chainsaw Bayonet

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Panacea X’s Chainsaw Baoynet is now available in its second iteration, the ‘Killsaw’. What makes it different from the original release? The inclusion of a stock-mounted battery pack, which is good for about 20 minutes of continuous use on a full charge.

This battery pack also functions as a handy counterweight when the Killsaw is mounted to a rifle, although the saw can also be used as a handheld, stand-alone unit.

Disney Imagineering Has Created Autonomous Robot Stunt Doubles

Friday, June 29th, 2018

First Disney inadvertently creates the ultimate urban camo colors just so they can hide utility doors and building from guests at their parks, and now they’re making “autonomous robot stunt doubles”, which as we know will translate to parkour-enabled robot death squads when Skynet finally comes about.

Neko Busou

Monday, May 21st, 2018

A cat equipped with its own mechanized combat suit. It would have to be from Japan, right?

This is Neko Busou, which means ‘Cat Weapons’. It’s a new model series from Bandai that started as an April Fools joke, but gained enough popularity to be made into a real product. This particular model is a cat named Socks, who is equipped with a cat-specific military jacket, to which various armaments can be equipped.

The entire series is scheduled for an August release, and can be purchased from: hlj.com/search/go?w=neko%20busou

1942 Marine Combat Sword With Sheath

Saturday, April 7th, 2018

I just had to post this. It’s basically an unholy amalgam of a katana and a USMC Mark 2 combat knife made of AUS-6 stainless steel with a non-descript black coating. It has a half-tang, with a stacked leather handle. It comes with a nylon sheath with a shoulder strap.

There’s definitely a fantasy knives and swords shop in a near-dead mall somewhere that has, like, 5 of these up on the wall.

JHO Knives – F**H

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

I’ll admit to my ignorance, and declare that I’m not really sure what the asterisks in F**H are supposed to be, and whether they are censoring a word, or are just a stylistic choice. I do know, however, what the F**H is: it’s a spiked baton. 10″ long, and weighing a bit over a pound, the F**H consists of a full titanium body, with brass inlays and small spikes. It even comes with a hidden stainless steel spike as part of the grip. In short, it’s a pretty gnarly piece. It’s also sold out; not surprising, given the limited production run of 20 pieces, but kind of surprising, since it was listed at $1250.

Bulletsafe – How Bulletproof is Tartar Sauce

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Bulletsafe has a web series titled ‘How Bulletproof?’, where they test how bulletproof regular objects are when compared to one of their ballistic vests. This episode, they test multiple jars of tartar sauce against a .50 AE Desert Eagle.

Spoiler, all they get from the tartar sauce is a huge mess, but that’s kind of a foregone conclusion.

The Boring Company Flamethrower

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

So… Elon Musk’s The Boring Company is selling a flamethrower. It’s about half the cost of other commercial flamethrowers, however it seems to have a pretty short range based on the looping video on The Boring Company website. It also kinda looks like a modified NERF gun, or a weapon from Destiny, so it has that going for it.

Available for pre-order and its expected to start shipping in Spring.

SIG Sauer – Chocolate MPX

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

As part of their ongoing Six Days Of SIG deal, SIG Sauer revealed a solid chocolate replica of the SIG MPX for sale on their webstore. To be specific, it’s 2 lbs. of milk chocolate, and SIG assures it’s 50 states legal, so if you’re in a restricted state, have at it.

Panacea X – The ‘Zombie X’ Chainsaw Bayonet

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

USA Today showed their ass again, this time with an infographic-style animation of the “Texas Church Gunman’s AR-15 Style Rifle”. Starting off with a “What we know about the Ruger AR-556”, as if they’re performing a revealing expose on previously unknown information (including music that sounds like the mission planning BGM of a Tom Clancy video game), they go over the basic features of the rifle, including its telescoping stock, standard-capacity magazine, and iron sights. It’s when they get into the list of aftermarket modifications, however, that the hilarity really starts to show:

Yup, a ‘Chainsaw bayonet’. Now, to their credit, they did say some of these accessories are “rare” (like that masterkey they also showed), but this? C’mon, could they be any more baity if they tried?*

Granted, the thing does exist: a company called Panacea X makes them, and to my discredit, there was one floating around SHOT Show, and I totally missed it while walking around. Anyway, dubbed the ‘Zombie X Chainsaw’, it’s a Picatinny-mountable chainsaw available in multiple color configurations. Each Zombie X is lovingly crafted right here in the USA, and features an aluminum grip, chassis, and rail mount, and can function as a standalone chainsaw when not mounted to a scary black rifle. Plus, it comes with the following accessories and goodies: battery, charger, t-shirt, bumper sticker, and free CONUS shipping.

*Of course, that’s really the goal, and I’m one of many, many people and outlets writing about it, so, mission accomplished!

Onnit – Star Wars Fitness Equipment

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

The Star Wars license can be found all over the place, from the expected – toys, games, clothing, collectables, to the weird – instruments, cookbooks, and even a sick bag. This line of fitness equipment from Onnit edges more towards the weird side, not so much because it’s fitness equipment with Star Wars licensing, but because it consists of items including a Death Star slam ball and a Boba Fett kettlebell. After all, there’s no better way to get in shape than cleaning a galactic bounty hunter’s head, or doing yoga on Han Solo’s carbonited body.

Giaco Whatever – 4000 PSI BB Gun VS Coca Cola Experiment

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

YouTube channel Giaco Whatever took a homemade, multi-barrel BB gun featured in a previous video, and upped the PSI from 130 to 4000, in addition to loading the gun with metal BBs. The end result is something that is understandably quite destructive.

Don’t try this at home, seriously.

Weapon 7.62 – TMC M72 LAW Pillow

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

It's like a dakimakura, but for anti-tank weapon fetishists

This is an M27 LAW anti-tank launcher replica, made into a pillow. It doesn’t have any function, aside from that already offered by a soft pillow. Its design does allow it to be used for MilSim, if warranted.

Thomas The RC Hexapod

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

I was on Reddit earlier today, and happened upon this .gif of a RC Hexapod modified with a Thomas the Tank Engine turret, complete with a working flamethrower. To be blunt, I found it hilarious, and thankfully the source was provided in the thread, which can be seen above.

It’s a product of YouTube channel PeterSripol, who modified the original Hexapod into the monstrosity it now is.

You can check out more of PeterSripol’s vids here: www.youtube.com/channel/UC7yF9tV4xWEMZkel7q8La_w
