aluminum

haha this man used 265 cans and a bunch of random stuff to make it:

Holy yea it’s a lot of work and requires a lot of equipment (some of it expensive), but such a cool DIY project.  *hits AR-15 grip vape and blows sick cloud*

The receiver looks really badass in the end… very no frills / tough.

Is YouTube trying to force me to get YouTube red?  I can’t even watch a 20 minute video anymore without an inline add or two being injected into it.  Annoying.

Thoughts?

Pretty cool, but at the $500 price I’d rather just buy any random real gun.. I guess that’s not the point though.

I like the idea of all aluminum construction and the 100 rubber band capacity.

I was doing some cleaning today and I opened all my plastic Glock boxes and took a look inside…

Those of you (in most states) that have bought a new Glock might recognize the following picture as the envelope and casings from 2 spent rounds that are included:

Their are some states that require the two casings to be retained by law enforcement and entered into a database as a way to fingerprint your gun.  I talked about the failure of one of these ballistic identification systems in in New York in a prior article (HERE).

A 2005 study by graduate students at MIT determined that a tin foil hat could either amplify or attenuate radio frequencies depending on frequency.

And I just find this out in 2010? Damn it… :lol:

Wait… is this just to trick us into taking off our tinfoil hats because they actually DO work?  Definitely something to consider :P

So much for the standard “I lost all my guns in a tragic boating accident”

Check out the YouTube interview:

forged-ar-15-lower

Lower receivers CNC machined from certified 7075 aluminum forgings and anodized per Mil-A-8625. Lower receivers are marked with “multi-use” for use of different calibers.

I had never heard of SI Defense until now.  I’m sure after this deal they will be a lot more well known, especially if the lowers are quality.

$500 for a custom logo though? LOL that seems a touch excessive!

$10 extra for clear anodizing, or $40 for colors is definitely reasonable though.

Too bad I already have more lowers than uppers :(  I’m sure they will have enough orders to keep them busy, without one from me.

DeweaponizingTheGun

His work, created by shooting bullets into reinforced aluminum and generating a patterned silhouette effect, Creel admits the process drained him, “I started off just going into the woods with canvas, then realized I needed a stronger material.” Taking nearly a full year to develop his current technique and the resulting first piece (an image of a deer) Creel took time off before continuing to work on the remaining pieces of his series.

Doesn’t sound very exhausting to me, but I’m not an artist.
