The Milwakee AR-15

Posted on 28 November 2011 by David Allred

Milwakee AR15If you’ve already seen the DeWalt AR-15 and weren’t all that impressed… maybe you’re a Milwakee kind of guy! No worries, someone has fabricated one of those too. With a mounted scope, a folding bi-pod, a chrome finish and the Milwakee red stock, you’re ready to take out some gophers, prairie dogs or your target choice.  I don’t see a battery pack soldered onto the bottom of the magazine like the DeWalt, but still a nice touch. I’ve always been a DeWalt guy when it comes to drills, but you can’t beat Milwakee when it comes to the quality of their sawzalls! I know that doesn’t have anything to do with the Milwakee AR-15, but if you’re anything like me, you have an appreciation for quality rifles and good quality tools!

I don’t see a price tag below this one, but I’m sure it’s priceless.

The DeWalt AR-15

Posted on 14 November 2011 by David Allred

DeWalt AR15Having spent some time in the construction field while in college and after building my first two homes as owner builder, this DeWalt AR-15 wasn’t something I could overlook. I’m not quite sure what prompted someone to deck out their AR-15 in the DeWalt yellow, but I like the look.

Dewalt AR-15 Battery MagazineThere are others on the web who actually believe that this is a nail gun that only looks like as AR-15. However, if you take a look at the magazine, it’s an actual AR-15 magazine with a DeWalt battery mounted to the end of the magazine. Not sure how they mounted it, but it looks like a classic case of JB Weld and some black paint!

Also, check out the selector. Instead of it being blank, I assume they’ve converted it to a fully automatic weapon, or Dewalt AR-15 or DeWalt M-16 Selectormaybe a three round burst. But instead of reading “AUTO”, it now reads “Rock N Roll.”Nice touch!

In this photo, the DeWalt AR-15 looks more like a DeWalt M4, with the shorter barrel, Red Dot scope and the extendable shoulder rest. Some of the parts on this AR-15 look new and some don’t. With a brand new AR-15, a little better battery mounting job and the DeWalt yellow, this would be a sharp looking weapon, mounted with all of its AR 15 Accessories. I’ve even seen DeWalt tool cases being DeWalt AR-15 or M4used as cases for weapons. Although using a tool case is a creative idea, tools tend to disappear and a tool thief would get a nice surprise when he opened that case.

The Barrett M107 .50 Caliber Sniper Rifle

Posted on 07 November 2011 by David Allred

Barrett M107 .50 Caliber Sniper RifleThe Barrett M107, .50 Caliber, Semi Automatic sniper rifle gets my vote on the list of sniper rifles. You’ve seen it in several movies and if you’re into video games, you’ve probably fired it online. This military grade weapon has enough punch to put a hole through the metal back stop at your local shooting range.

The M107 fires a .50BMG round at about $10 each. It’s magazine is capable of holding ten rounds, so at $10 bucks a pop, blowing a hundred at the shooting range won’t be a problem.

The M107 has a range of nearly 1.5 miles yet due to it’s advanced recoil system, flash suppressor and larger barrel, it shoot like a true semi-automatic should.

Barrett M107A1 50 Caliber RifleThe newest version of the Barrett M107 is the M107A1. It’s nearly four pounds lighter than the original M107 making it just over 30 lbs. It’s a heavy rifle if you compare it to the average semi-automatic rifle, such as an AR-15 which weighs in at around 7 or 8 lbs.

You can view the M107A1 at the official Barrett website.

The price for civilians runs around $10,000 -$11,000 per rifle.

Use Your Pumpkins for Target Practice after Halloween

Posted on 02 November 2011 by David Allred

Halloween is such a fun and festive holiday. My wife and I have a blast taking our kids out to do some trick or treating. It’s great to see how excited they get as they run up to their first door to say, “Trick or Treat!” In my opinion, Jack-o-Lanterns are the best part of Halloween. The carving is a great family activity and all….but the best part of pumpkins is after Halloween is over. Don’t just throw them in the dumpster, use those babies for some target practice!
