rifling

This isn’t pretty but it appears to have worked:

Home-Barrel-RiflingCool.  Royal Nonesuch; take notes.  This guy is out-Royal-Nonesuch’ing you at your own game. :P

What kind of sus coil did this man make at the beginning?  Is he bootlegging liquor in his spare time? haha either way it’s a damn nice coil. I skipped through his “making of” video on his page, and it’s really neat how it fills the copper tube up with liquid parafin wax before he bends it. I like this guy’s style. haha nm.. actually he did make a distiller as shown in this video. This guy has some cool talents. 10/10 – would party with.

Thoughts?  This guy needs to accuracy test one of his barrels vs smooth bore.  I’d like to see the results!

Some machine shop goodness from LaRue Tactical:

AR15-Barrel-Vibration-Dampener-BowjaxSome of you might find this type of thing boring.  I really like machining and automation, espeically when it’s firearm or clothing related.

No LaRue isn’t making barrel dampeners (pictured left)… yet.  Maybe they’ll be operator enough someday.

Thoughts?

The old way, by cutting the rifling grooves into the barrel:

One of the new ways, by cold hammer forging the grooves in:

Frankly they are both frightening as hell!  The 2nd video isn’t specifically firearm related, but the process is similar.  I cringed every time that hammer came down and struck the object… that’s TONS of force per square inch.

To use a Workaholics reference… both processes are so tight butthole.

Thoughts?

Don’t worry, the videos are not at all loaded with Ruger propaganda… quite the opposite actually.

Rifling on the inside of the neck of a beer bottle?  Sure why not…

Miller came out with this new “Vortex” bottle to try and boost sales according to an article at Brandweek.

I have my doubts that it will make Miller Lite taste any better.. but I definitely will buy a 6 pack at least just to try the cool bottles.  “Mission Accomplished” is what Miller’s marketing team would be saying right now if they read this.

If any companies outside of firearm manufacturers want to win my heart, combining something firearm related with your product is a sure bet.

I wish Miller would have played off the gun idea though.. but I guess there are too many negative connotations associated with putting something “rifled” in your mouth, or even the popular term, “to shotgun a beer”.

You can visit the Miller Lite website HERE, although there is surprisingly no information on this new bottle.  Some of the commercials they have online are pretty funny though.
