Cardboard M4 Carbine

Monday, October 29th, 2012

While not the most accurate model of an M4 Carbine ever made out of cardboard, this rendition with a telescoping stock, removable magazine, and flat top rail with fixed front sight shows effort and ingenuity.

Axe Gun

Axe gun or pistol sword, either option kinda negates the well-known phrase “never bring a knife to a gun fight”.

ClearPlex iPhone 5 Screen Protector Vs. .410 Taurus Judge Public Defender

Monday, October 1st, 2012

I’ll be 100% honest: the only reason I put this video up is because someone is shooting an iPhone 5 with a Taurus Judge Public Defender, although a screen protector that protects a phone from the impact of .410 shot is intriguing. There’s also this ‘behind the scenes’ video that shows the method behind the madness.

A recent addition to the Daniel Defense website insures you get exactly what you want out of your DDM4 with the appropriately named ‘Build Your DDM4’ feature. ‘Build Your DDM4’ allows you to choose the options you’d like in either a full rifle or upper receiver group. Options include:

Experimental Bullpup Rifles

Friday, September 14th, 2012

This is an image collection of experimental bullpup prototype rifles seemingly based on the AK design or at least chambered for the same 7.62×39 cartridge. At least one of the rifles, the TKB-022, actually existed. It was designed by G.A. Korobov of Tula Design Bureau, itself an arms-designing organization associated with Tula Arms Factory, and never went into full production due to its radical design; Soviet officers preferred the familiarity and reliability of the already proven AK-47 and its variants. Interestingly enough, the TKB-022 has the best barrel length to overall length ratio of most military rifles ever built, and at one point was chambered for an experimental 5.6×39 cartridge that later evolved into the current 5.45×39.

9mm Gun Sconce

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Looking for an addition to that tacticool man cave you’ve been planning? Then you might feel inclined to pick up a few of these 9mm Gun Sconces. Each Sconce is handmade by being slip-cast in ceramic through plaster molds. The base measures roughly 4″x7″ with a total height of 13″ including the shade and fixture. They come with a matte black top hat shade lined with gold and are already wired for easier installation.

The Gun Sconce is the work of ceramicryan/Loaded Objects Ceramics, who’s work I’ve covered in a previous article.

UNCHARTED 3: Nathan Drake Inspired Gun Holster

Monday, August 20th, 2012


Master leathersmith David Vigil has crafted this impressive gun holster for Vigilante Leather, inspired by the one used by Nathan Drake in the PS3-exclusive ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’. The design closely matches the in-game model in both metalwork and the dye job used to treat the leather; a model dyed in black with gunmetal-colored metalwork is also available upon request. 8 buckles, 2 to each strap, allow for easy fitting, with an option for custom fitting if required. Additionally, every holster is waterproofed and stress tested, insuring full functionality in any situation. Simply put, it’s a piece that’s usable for way more than just cosplay.

Available in limited quantities from David Vigil on Etsy.

Internet Movie Firearm Database

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

I’m sure you know about the Internet Movie Database, or imdb.com, another one of those internet time sinks that has information on almost every movie ever along with almost every actor ever, the parts they’ve played, etc. Since this is the internet, where just about any damn thing can be found, and copycats are common, somebody made a similar site in the form of a Wiki, but with firearms as the primary focus instead of movies and actors, even calling it the internet movie firearm database. On the site, you can look up what movies, television shows, and video games a firearm has been in, what firearms a movie, television show, or video game has featured, and even what firearms and in what show/movie/video game an actor has used.

It’s pretty exhaustive, which makes games of 6-degrees-of-a-Beretta-92F all the easier to play.


3D Printed AR-15 Lower

Friday, July 27th, 2012

HaveBlue of AR15.com has managed to create a working polymer AR-15 lower made from a 3D printer, specifically a mid 90’s Stratasys 3D printer. So far, the lower has been combined with a .22 LR upper, with over 200 rounds fired and no issues. A .556 upper was also used, with some feeding and extraction issues, however according to the creator this upper has also had problems with a standard aluminum lower.

A few other articles I’ve seen on this project have instantly jumped at the chance to (incorrectly) claim people now have the ability to create fully-functional firearms using just a 3D printer, so in the name of truth and fairness, I feel it’s important to mention that only the lower was created with the printer, not the trigger assembly and other required components.

SPP-1 Underwater Pistol

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

The SPP-1 is a Cold War-era firearm of Russian make, designed specifically for use by Soviet Frogmen. It fires 4.5mm steel darts from four individual barrels. The pistol uses a double action firing mechanism and fires each barrel one at at time, with the striker (mounted on a rotating base) rotating to each barrel as the trigger is pulled. Also developed was the Avtomat Podvodnyi Spetsialnyi, an underwater assault rifle that fired 5.66mm darts and was fed using a 26-round detachable box magazine. Of course, the Soviets weren’t unique in their development of multi-barreled underwater firearms: the Underwater Defense Gun Mark 1 Mod 0 and H&K P11 were designed and used by the United States and allied nations for similar purposes.

Small Arms Defense Journal


Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

1 M&P-15, 1 muzzle break, 3 lasers, 4 flashlights, 3 red dot sights, 9 30-round magazines, 1 forward grip bipod, 2 additional laser/flashlights, and 2 additional horizontally mounted magazines = one 100% badass mall ninja zombie killin’ rifle!

GSG STG-44 .22LR Rifle

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

The GSG STG-44 .22LR Rifle was last seen at SHOT 2012, and will finally be available for sale sometime this Summer from American Tactical Imports. Designed to as close to original specifications as possible, the GSG STG-44 weights in at 9.5 lbs. with a 16.5″ barrel for the 25 round variant and a 16.25″ barrel for the 10 round variant (according to the ATI website, a possible typo) and is chambered for .22LR cartridges instead of the much rarer 7.92×33mm Kurz used by the original STG-44. It comes in an WWII-style Amish-crafted Eastern Pine box and will retail for approximately $600. For a plinker it’s a bit pricy, but it’s cool enough to warrant the price, and to be fair it is an import.


Laser Cut Puzzle Firearm

Sunday, June 10th, 2012

Laserist on Etsy has created a couple of cool laser cut puzzles that form into models of firearms when completed. Seen above is the Uzi (not shown is the .357 magnum revolver). Their puzzles can take anywhere from a few minutes to four hours to work out, based on their complexity. Also available is a military Humvee and submarine.


LEGO Heavy Weapons

Monday, June 4th, 2012

A while ago we posted an article on the book ‘Badass LEGO Guns: Building Instructions for Five Working Guns’, which was an instruction book on making five working fictional LEGO guns. This time, we’ll be focusing on the book ‘LEGO Heavy Weapons: Build Working Replicas of Four of the World’s Most Impressive Guns’ by Jack Street. Unlike the previous publication, ‘LEGO Heavy Weapons’ features plans for models based on actual firearms, specifically the Desert Eagle, AKS-74U, SPAS-12, and the Jungle Carbine, which is based on the Lee Enfield rifle. Like ‘Badass LEGO Guns’, however, the book features detailed parts lists and plans so you can quickly build the LEGO models found inside. Too bad this one doesn’t have a model that takes advantage of a motor for automatic fire. Maybe we’ll see something like that in the next book?

Available from No Starch Press.

Thanks to Tim for the tip!

Ghost Recon Network

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

What is Ghost Recon Network? Well, in layman’s terms, it could be called the Ghost Recon equivalent to Call of Duty ELITE, but that wouldn’t be doing the service justice. It boasts more than enough unique features to distance itself from its competitors.


Double Barrel 1911?!?

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Presenting the AF2011-A1 “Second Century”, a double barrel 1911*. According to Arsenal Firearms, the AF2011-A1 can keep a grouping the size of an orange at 15 yards and the size of a watermelon at 25 yards. Although it boasts a number of unique parts, such as a single slide and single spur double hammer, the firing pins, the firing pins plates, the sears groups, the triple springs, the inner parts of the mainspring housings, the recoil springs and recoil springs rods, the magazine bodies and inner parts, the sights, the grips and grips screws and bushings are all interchangeable with a standard 1911. Additionally, the AF2011-A1 can be customized with either 2 independent triggers and one sear group or with 2 triggers permanently joined and the choice of 1 or 2 sear groups. As for choice of colors, it can be ordered in a mirror finish Deep Blue or with a 3400 Vickers surface hardness White Ash Nitrite coating.

Part of me wants to make fun of it, and part of me wants one really bad.

Kalashnikov Vodka – AK47 Bottle

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Limited to a production of 13,000 units, this Lux grade Vodka brewed by Glasov Distillery is, true to its name, bottled in AK-47-shaped bottles. The 1 liter bottles come in a ‘Military Green’ wooden case and feature a numbered dog tag. Most of them have already been snatched up by collectors and the like, but there’s still some supply left, at least according to the site www.kalashnikov-vodka.com, where you can order a bottle. However, expect to spend £250 ($396 US), not including additional fees and postage.

SHOT Media Range Day 2012 – Custom MKA 1919 12 GA Shotgun

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012


The MKA 1919 is a Turkish made 12 ga shotgun imported by RAAC. It’s modeled on the AR-15 platform in both appearance and the location and function of the safety and magazine release. The model I tried at Media Day was a variant modified for competition purposes. It features a flat upper receiver with an EOTec sight, collapsible stock, modified barrel and choke, replacement pistol grip, enlarged charging handle, and enlarged mag release. Additionally, it also had a 10-round extended magazine. It’s dubbed the ‘Zombie gun’, due to its paint job.


Despite being chambered for 12 ga shells, it was practically recoilless. Definitely a good choice to consider of you’re looking for an accurate and comfortable semi-auto shotgun.

The basic model is imported by RAAC.
