Known as “Project Titan”.  This thing is a BEAST:

The obvious downside is weight.  According to the project titan website the shroud is built from steel.  Because of the weight, muzzle rise is a non issue, so that makes for quicker followup shots.

I’m not entirely sure this will be hugely popular when it’s released, but it’s definitely a neat idea for long range shooting.

Thoughts?

Well maybe not a battle rifle.. more like an “Impress People with all your disposable income” rifle:

You can check out more pics and info over at NEMO Arms.  Damn I love the look of Titanium.

The barrel and a few other components are still stainless steel.  Titanium is almost twice as heavy as Aluminum and way more difficult to machine. Like he said in the video, it’s to showcase their machining capabilities (and to no doubt get a buzz going around the internet).

NEMO arms will be at the NRA annual meeting today, so if you’re going you can check it out.

Thoughts?

According to their website the starting price is $1295.

It’s too bad they don’t get into the upper / bolt market separately… I’m sure they would make a killing if people could just buy that and not a whole new gun.

Video of it in action – HERE

It’s weird when you can see right through the upper when the bolt locks back!

Over at Guns & Coffee, Fred’s buddy MacGyver fell victim to a broken extractor spring on his AR-15 bolt when they were at the range.

His friend, who is an Army Engineer Officer came up with this fix:

Yes that’s a rubber band, and it worked. Awesome.

He would definitely approve of the AR-15 airbrushed with his likeness which I posted about previously.

This would make quick work of SpongeBob’s own pineapple under the sea home.

I like when pictures are incorporated into camouflage.
