KSG Desk Lamp

Oleg Volk posted this on Facebook. It is a desk lamp of Kel-Tec Founder George Kellgren. According to Oleg, the lamp is activated by pumping the shotgun. If you look closely you can see the pull chain is routed into the pup grip. Very cool and simple. I want one. However I would not want to buy a KSG just to make it into a lamp.

  • Now THIS is a tactical Lamp I can support…..

    “Is that a shotgun over there!?”
    “Nope…. just my lamp”

    I’ve never hated a firearm enough to make it non-functional. Also, being an electrician, I would find a proper switch to put in the pump. Attaching the chain to it is just cheesy. It’s a cool idea though.

      What about making the trigger the switch that would be better i think.

      • Nashvone

        Nope! The only time I want my finger on a trigger is when I want it to go bang. I see your point though.

        • oldman

          I see you point and can’t disagree plus it would be a good deal harder to do.

    The only good use for a kel tec.

      A kel tec put down treyvon no problem.

      • 7n6

        Pistol jammed with empty shell casing still in the chamber.

        • NDS

          Any auto loader will do exactly that when the slide is obstructed.

  • Zachary marrs

    I don’t get it.

    Why would you look at a lamp and say “this is too reliable”?

  • USMC03Vet

    Would have made a better door stop.

  • SP mclaughlin

    The ultimate home defense nightlight.

  • AlmightySatan

    How tacky. Only pure white trash would find this lamp appealing.

    • Laserbait

      It’s because it’s black, right?

  • Joe DiAntonio

    might as well make it out of a lamp, Kel-Tec customer service sucks

  • Steve Nick

    Y’all need to buy umbrellas for your Cheerios.

  • wetcorps

    For those who wondered why they can’t find Kel Tec guns for sale : they actually make them into lamps 😀

  • K R

    Sweet lamp.

    OH come on guys, its probably a development “beta” piece that was a one off from the CAD drawings to see if it would actually work.
    True story: My grandfather (fathers side) was a medic (Dr.?) of sorts during the Spanish-American War. He brought back about 1/2 (?) a dozen Springfields/Krag-Jorgenson(?) rifles. 2 or 3 were made into floor lamps another couple had cement (?)poured down the barrels, the bolts still worked. Played with those a couple of times, I was still in grade school. I have NOO idea where these pieces are now. Probably saw a lot of death when he was over there, thats why he did what he did. I was just a kid, early 60’s…

    I’m the kind of weirdo that would put a cheap LED light on the rail and tell people it’s “just in case”.


    Now, how exactly are you supposed to prune your fingers when it’s a lamp?
