A Salt Rifle “Assault” Rifle

Capture

In perhaps what I would deem as one of the best tongue-in-cheek offerings yet to emerge from the firearms industry, Texas Black Rifle Company has released what they dub the A Salt Rifle. The weapon itself is a political statement against those who Texas Black Company dubs “crazy Liberals” and “Libtards”.

Capture3

The A Salt Rifle is likely to either highly entertain those who view it or highly offend the opposite. A pun on the largely political term “Assault Rifle” the A Salt Rifle is replete with witty repartee. The magazine well uses the Donkey (a common symbol of the US Democtratic political party) to complete the statement “Shove Gun Control Up Your…” The safety/selector continues the theme with “safe space” for safe, “offended” for fire, and “triggered” for the typical fully-automatic setting.

For those that care for the specifications beyond the various labeling, the lower receiver is a largely standard forging to current military specifications. It is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and Type III hard anodized to ensure that the labeling survives the harshest treatment. The magazine well is standard STANAG dimensions.

Pricing is set at $150. More than a few see the receiver as funny; current back-orders has Texas Black Rifle Company at a 3-4 week lead time from shipping with them machining at full capacity.

    “FirearmsNotPolitics” outcry triggered in 3, 2, 1…

    • Vhyrus

      Nowhere on earth are firearms and politics not inescapably intertwined. As Mao famously said: “Political power grows from the barrel of a gun.”

      • Twilight sparkle

        It’s fine for some politics to surround firearms because they’re directly intertwined, like new pushes for gun control, but some things are just unnecessary.

        The a salt rifle pun was fun but the generalization of liberals and the democrat party is a bit much.

          I’m a liberal Dem who owns more guns than many Third World armies, and the stereotyping gets old, just as I’m sure having gun owners stereotyped as racist rednecks must too.

            I’m certainly not a democrat, but I’ve sold guns to different peoples who are usually assumed to be anti gun people by the vast majority of our community and I think the last thing we need to do is push anyone away from our community with dirty politics.

    • AvidAK

      This is not a political post as nowhere in the article did the author once mention firearm laws or any official policy. This is simply info on a new receiver with a clever design that is flying off the shelves and that based on all the other comments the author’s readers have great interest in. Move along.

      • MrEllis

        It’s not political? Wow, this is how some people dismiss reality and insert their own. I come here to avoid things like this and people like you. Now they cater to them but still keep the byline.

        Seriously though, it’s not political… this is mindboggling.

        • AvidAK

          You have a rich comment history full of political statements on this website. Could it be that this post bothered you because the party you affiliate with has left you behind on this subject and vilified firearms? Just an observation based in the fact that most commenters seem to have no issue with this post.

          Regarding this article and your OP – reasonable people can have different takes. To me, a discussion on the pros vs cons of gun laws and the politicians behind them would be going to far for this site’s stated mission, but this is just innocent/funny politics themed and the info is really about the receiver and not gun laws/policy.

          • MrEllis

            How does any of that make it non-political?

          • M40

            I too have read through your comment history. You wade into these forums with leftist political views, and constantly spout off in support of gun control. Then you act all butt-hurt when people respond, and cry that the site is too political. Do you have some kind of disorder? Are we all supposed to just accept your views as truth, while keeping our own quiet? That is NOT how a forum works. Perhaps you’ll encounter less resistance over at HuffPo or Daily Kos.

          • MrEllis

            Still didn’t answer the question just attacked me as a person, which is fine. You can’t even admit to a reality before you. You wade in from TTAG as well?

          • M40

            You never asked me a question, therefore I didn’t answer. See how that works? I merely commented on your presence here in a firearms forum where you constantly politicize the conversation and stir up the gun control debate at every opportunity… then cry about it when people debate you. As for my “attack”, I guess your feelings are VERY easily hurt. Perhaps you should purchase a helmet.

          • MrEllis

            “How does any of that make it non-political?”

            You responded to that statement. It’s one line, I’m not sure how you misconstrued that. Ahh, now you whine about me injecting politics into the conversation. I’m no stranger to irony.

          • M40

            Ironic that you asked that question to ‘AvidAK’, and for some odd reason expected me to answer it.
            You should go for one of those high visibility safety helmets… maybe orange. Then add some reflectors and stencil “Easily Butt-hurt” across the front and back. That way everyone will know to take it easy on you.

            Website touts not having politics.

          • Squrrily

            So true, I’ve been called out by the blog master for his idea of “political speak”. So much of this blog is political. Right leaning comments seem to be encouraged. Fact is, if gun owners do not practice self restraint when it comes to promotion of ridiculous weapons like thermite, others will help incur that restraint. When I read some of the posts featured here I have my doubts about whether the nut job author should be allowed gun ownership. As for the blog master, if this is in fact a non political blog he should bloc ALL political talk. Otherwise simply call this blog a political forum.

          • MrEllis

            He usually chimes in not after the seventh “libtard” but somewhere after tears flow. Which is fine, he pays to keep the lights on (well technically those of us who don’t block his ads do but you get the gist). Why bother with the petty misdirection? Tooth and nail it’s clung to.

            Sure, it’s refreshing not to have seven articles a day about the president coming to kill babies and bang all the white women after he takes every gun ever made and makes a giant Smaug-style pile out of them. Day by day it seems they have to lead more often with “this is about politics…” and then proceed to speak about politics.

            I’d literally be happier if it was just 90 pictures of guns or a seven hour video of someone panning over guns I’d never be able to afford or find.

          • Squrrily

            Thank you for clouding the issue with babble about dead babies and hatred of a black President. Your true motives are clear and are motivated by pure political and societal bigotry. Many of the problems associated with the gun rights movement can be connected to “crazies” such as yourself. People who hide behind gun rights in order to avoid scrutiny that would surly happen if you had the balls to spew your sick opinions in any other forum. My advice, shut up, join a KKK or Jr Nazi Party. You will find many supporters there who will welcome you and might even give you a cute uniform or hood to sport at the next rally.

            Case in point. Please pay attention that he has created an entire narrative about me from thin air. Why do I get the feeling that you have no one in your real personal life who will tolerate your nonsense. It’s sad that you have to come here in a desperate attempt to get attention.

          • Aramaki

            I made thermite in my 10th grade chemistry classroom. It was an assignment.

          • Aramaki

            Your standard bearer decided to make the above piece of metal part of politics. “Firearms not Politics” becomes irrelevant when individual firearms get politicized.

          • MrEllis

            No, it’s still promoting politics above firearms. Weird how easy it is to avoid the subject and actually stick to firearms. Trying to ape the other blogs just makes you a poor carbon copy of them. They had a thing going but that’s quickly being eroded.

            I get you don’t understand it, it’s fine, you’re not the target audience.

          • Aramaki

            “you’re not the target audience” said the guy extremely butthurt about a post on the site.

          • Squrrily

            Individual firearms became the issue when crazies began using those firearms to slaughter mass numbers of innocents. The public has no need for high capacity magazines. Open carry is becoming a disaster. I feel very uncomfortable being within 200 yards of an idiot with an assault rifle hanging over his shoulder. Gun nuts will continue to push the boundaries until cooler heads prevail and stop the madness.

          • Aramaki

            1) most mass shootings are done with handguns
            2) your mass shooter can just bring more 10 rd magazines (like Virginia Tech)
            3) When you get attacked on the street, or in your home, you only have the magazine in the weapon, the guy attacking you has plenty.
            4) Open carry has not been a disaster, and my rights do not end where your feelings begin.
            5) What “madness”? The per capita murder rate is near 100 year lows.

          • Squrrily

            Babble on, but bottom line is that something must change in the world of public weaponry. I am a gun owner and will never understand why ordinary citizens need more than standard hunting rifles or ten round handguns. Militia types have dreams of government standoffs and Presidential overthrow. They feel the need to own military style weapons. The problem is that the majority of people in this country have NO desire to participate in armed conflict. Obviously you do so why not join the military. I did and got my belly full of automatic weapons, bombs, and killing.

          • Trey Odom

            Babble on? You are the only one here that sounds like an idiot, reading things into peoples comments that aren’t there. Frankly I think it may be time for you to have a mental health evaluation.

          • Aramaki

            The AR-15 is a standard hunting rifle. It has the looks it has because of its straightline construction, which leads to fewer moving parts and easier maintenance than your “standard hunting rifle”. A few of my relatives have hog infestations on their land as well, and hogs travel in groups of 15-20 at times. I *need* that 30 round magazine, or else they all scatter and continue to destroy crops and profit.

          • Squrrily

            So your ability to kill an extra pig is more important than a crazie’s ability to kill a few children??

          • Aramaki

            10 round mag restrictions did not stop the VA Tech shooter at all. Frankly, from your comments, you appear to not understand how firearms work, which is typical of Fudds like yourself.

            “I got mine, screw all of you” is what you’re saying now, but in a few years, they’ll be coming for your “sniper rifle”, and they’ll tell you “being able to kill a deer is more important than a crazie’s ability to assassinate children?” Because it’s always about the children, and how dare you not think of them.

            I for one will not give up my rights or surrender anything because radical Muslims want to kill us all. In fact, that only gives me further reason to arm up.

          • Aramaki

            Furthermore, I see that you frequently comment on “The Weed Blog”. You should be aware that under the Gun Control Act of 1968, using marijuana makes you a “prohibited person” under the law, and by not getting rid of your “hunting rifle”, you are committing a Federal felony.

          • Squrrily

            Another question on the firearms questionnaire involves mental health. Do you acknowledge your mental health treatment records? Be aware that you are violating Federal law. You shouldn’t be ashamed of seeking mental health care. Also, your interest in the”weed blog” won’t be enough to deny your firearm purchase. On the other hand, previous mental health issues WILL disqualify your arms purchase. Good luck, and PLEASE don’t stop taking your psych meds!

          • Aramaki

            I have not been admitted to a mental institution, nor have I been found to be incapacitated by a court. You need to read the GCA68 again. However, using marijuana does make you a prohibited person, even in states where it’s ‘legal’, and there are ATF letters stating as much.

            Oh, also, a guy with a truck killed 80 people in France last night, but tell me why I need to hand in my 30 rd mags to save “the chilluns”

          • Squrrily

            Rumors of your mental health alone should be enough to deny your possession of a hi cap mag. I’ll leave it there ….good luk and may Allah look kindly upon your soul

          • Aramaki

            Says the guy who is illegally in possession of a firearm.

          • Squrrily

            BTW….” Aramaki” ……that is a Muslim name right? Jus sayn’ …….you could be on the terror watch list. Go roll yourself a “fattie” , take your meds, chill, and turn in your firearm..

          • Aramaki

            Aramaki is a Japanese name, thanks. I fully comply with State and Federal laws, and I have never had so much as a traffic ticket given to me. I got a parking ticket for getting the side of the road wrong once in an Alternate Side Parking municipality.

            I don’t want to roll a “fattie”, as I don’t care much for drugs, and furthermore, would be a Federal felony for me as I possess firearms. You, on the other hand, are a prohibited person, and are required to surrender your firearm.

            I will not turn in my firearm, as it is my birthright as an American.

          • Squrrily

            As a Japanese immigrant( with Muslim name ) I do not believe you should possess a weapon other than a sword of course. You should move to Alaska where you can twist up all the weed you need to keep you stable.Now if Trump gets elected you may find yourself in an internment camp. Anyway I wish you and your kind well. God bless America

            No. You’re a felon. I’m not going away until I’ve found you and handed you over to law enforcement. It’s my duty as a responsible gun owner to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous drug addicts like you.

      You can’t separate those two these days. as much you want to.

      • MrEllis

        Actually, it’s pretty easy. 99% of the information concerning them doesn’t have to be fear fueled hyperbole. I’m pro-firearms. I have used them, trained with them, strapped them on for work and carry them. Yet here I’ve become the “libtard who wants to take all of the guns.” Yeah. I’ve seriously grown to dislike the firearms community because of those folks. I see why any rational person would question if they should have guns of any sort. They paint a poor picture for the world to see and are oblivious to what it takes to actually sway those who oppose firearms. One day that attitude will cause us to reach a tipping point, not in their favor. Then all the mindless rhetoric and implied threats in the world won’t save the only thing that seems to allow them to identify as a citizen.

        Openly mocking your pretend target audience isn’t really ideal, at this point it’s obvious there has been an editorial shift. This is TTAG Lite now, I find the same boorish people there as here as of late. If it wasn’t for a few of the folks who spend the majority of their time going over actual firearms and making enjoyable videos I doubt I’d even bother. I’ve already stopped telling folks to come her or linking things to here on social media and I’d never even dare send anyone left of Barry Goldwater here, much less anyone who’s slightly progressive. They’d think I was nuts and wouldn’t even bother trying to learn about firearms.

        • MrSatyre

          As opposed to all of the mindless rhetoric and implied threats from the Liberal gun-control groups which paint all gun owners uniformly as racist old white men, etc. etc.? “Any rational person”? Please. It’s precisely the irrationality and fear mongering from the Liberals which has consistently jeopardized the rights that we have—rights which we have for very valid, historical reasons.

          • MrEllis

            See above. Not looking for justifications, I don’t really care to argue about it, no offense. I’m speaking plainly to the fact this site is becoming more about politics less about firearms. The comment section doesn’t help.

            MrEllis, Judging from the majority of your posts on this blog, which typically start with something like “Firearms not…” followed by a personal attack of either the editors of the blog or a previous poster, I’d say that you ARE looking for justifications and you DO care to argue about it. One would have thought that after so many years of “using, training with, and carrying firearms for work,” that you would appreciate and defend the practical
            (and yes, political) value of firearms – values that our prescient
            founders so thoughtfully and unambiguously codified into our basic political documents using words like “inalienable” and “shall not be infringed.” Instead however, you spout the same kind “reasonableness” gun-control rhetoric as do the fabian-socialist leaders of the party to which you openly profess your political affiliation. Like it or not, the gun-control movement was birthed, nurtured, and has been sustained by the “Democratic” party and its minions. A party that has worked tirelessly for more than half a century to vilify and criminalize law-abiding citizens (including you, Mr. “progressive” gun owner). Now I may just be an ignorant redneck, and I’m sure you’ll readily dismiss me as such, but even I recognize the “irony” or perhaps more properly the “incongruity” of your stated position and of your continued participation in our community.

          • MrEllis

            Pointing out something someone does is not a personal attack. And no, after many years of listing to people like you go on and on about how our precious freedoms are being taken away by a cruel tyrant all the while they are not and here comes the NRA, or whatever mouthpiece you choose, banging a drum talking about how they carried the day.

            Funny how you whine about personal attacks then debase yourself at length by diving right in. Good thing you got the victim card in first though…

          • Bryan Brah

            In fact, and in spite of what the so-called “Democratic” party leaders might have me believe, I am not a victim. I am a free citizen with the will, the means, and the responsibility to resist tyranny in whatever insidious form it manifests itself. I am sorry that you don’t feel TFB lives up to its masthead of “Firearms not Politics” but you have to understand that the vast majority gun owners are as passionate about their right to own guns as they are about guns themselves. In many minds the two are the same. The editors do an honest job of keeping the stories themselves apolitical, but it is unreasonable for you to expect the moderators to police user-created content to any extent other than for obvious trolling, profanity, personal attacks, commercial ads, etc. In my 40 years of being part of “American Gun Culture,” and maybe your experience is different, if you talk about guns long enough the conversation eventually turns to politics. You can’t change that fact, and most especially not with the tone and posture you’ve adopted on this forum. I’m glad you’re part of our community, I really am. I know how fun, addictive, and empowering guns can be. I also know that you’ve probably taken some of your progressive friends and family out to the range and given them a taste of what real freedom feels like (something a crusty old John Bircher like me could never do). So I say: God bless you MrEllis!

          The Democrat senators did a failed sit in about guns, and the AR-15 has been turned into a symbol for both the left and right. The Dallas shooting was done allegedly an “AR-15” When the reality it was a Franken-Saiga. It’s politics and a lack of facts.

          • MrEllis

            I heard “SKS” first. But until I hear the police speak I know it’s usually speculation. My point is “Firearms not Politics.” There is plenty of stuff we could be enjoying besides this. Period.

          • Donnie Robertson

            Mister Ellis I’m too out of shape to enjoy the enjoyment of enjoying the company of a non-lady who wants to enjoy SOMETHING I can’t supply! Don’t make me feel bad!

            You were referring to “non-ladies” weren’t ya’?

        • Donnie Robertson

          Ya know Mister Ellis I think I found myself agreeing with what your so eloquently detailed. That alone scares the heck out of me. I’m 72 years old and had some sort of firearm since I was EIGHT years old (always WELL supervised under penalty of LOSING said firearm and being restricted to the barn until I was 25 years old!

          I fear the tables will be turned on ALL of us if the administration change includes a thing called “Clinton”. The Poo-Preem Kourt will take our so called “rights” and bash them into submission. One of two things will happen: (1) Comply and calmly hand over those “forbidden items” -OR- “Calmy become a “FELON” who hopes he never need utilize the “item” that made him a FELON by simple ‘retention’. Scary as heck and as much as I hear “…from my cold dead arthritic hands”, I must wonder if will have the ‘guts’ should that moment come.

          OK AND OK! Time to grab a six-pack, the old .45 and go shoot the heck out of a paper-bandit! Heck – make that two six-packs and a REAL bandit! Just kidding boys….. just kidding. I’ll leave it at paper-bandits!

          “Why hello missy….. can I help you with that campaign sign you are nailing on MY TREE….. on MY PROPERTY? What’s that say, “Hary Clion” for “President”? OH WAIT! that sign is a tad wrinkled – I see what it says, “NO WAY Do We Need HILLary CliNTon” for “President”! OK NAIL AWAY!

          From Senility Central Old Man Donnie is OUT! 🙂

    Man did anyone else have a tough time reading that article? It reads like it was written by a 3rd grader

    Who goes over this stuff before it gets published?

    “In perhaps what I would deem as one of the best tongue-in-cheek offerings yet to emerge from the firearms industry”

    So he might deem it one of the best, but isnt sure? Either ditch “perhaps” or “what I would deem”.

    “The A Salt Rifle is likely to either highly entertain those who view it or highly offend the opposite.”
    You gave two outcomes, its not “likely” to be one of two choices.

    It will highly entertain those who view it and highly offend the opposite?

    So it will entertain people who view it, but offend the opposite?
    The opposite of what?

    What really killed me was he followed that nonsense with “The A Salt Rifle is replete with repartee”
    A very split personality shift from earlier sentences.

    Repartee is a quick and witty reply, it only applies to the written language when you are responding, for instance if you had a quick and clever response to this post, that would be repartee.

    The word you were looking for is satire.

    Hell you missed a great opportunity for a play on words.

    “The Black Rifle Company receiver will be highly entertaining to those who take it with a grain “assault”, and be very offensive to the people it pokes fun at.”

    Ive always noticed the bad writing in the TFB articles, But this was the only one where I have had to stop and read a sentence multiple times.

    • Simcha M.

      I’m a self-admitted “grammar nazi” and I didn’t have much of a problem with the article’s prose, especially compared to a lot of other crap I see on the Web.

  • Kafir1911

    Every serious American needs one of these and Spikes Crusader lowers.

  • Joel WS

    Please check your history regarding the Democratic Party symbol. Leftist revisionist history aside, it is not and never has been a donkey – it’s a JACKASS. Know it, remember it, use it! (Look it up if you have to.)

    Sadly that just dawned on my senile self. Now what am I to do? Stop eating pork? 🙂 OH WAIT! You said DEMOCRAT ……. not “Radical islamic Terrorist”! MY APOLOGY! I don’t wanna tick of The Barack! 🙁

  • jcitizen

    This will be a great alternative to a “grain of salt” also! Now I can simply throw a “salt” rifle over my shoulder. Heh!

  • kiowacheif 806

    I think someone of you gun builders ought to actually build a salt rifle.A rifle that actually fires salt rock.This kills two birds with one stone. Get busy gun manufacturers.

  • I know a couple of the guys over at TBR. Decent people.

  • parabellum

    I love this s#i+! I have an apology letter that gun buyers must sign if they voted for local and national pinko politicians. (Most people ((patriotic conservatives)) just want to take a copy to show their friends.)

      Thanks for really adding something to the conversation with this gem.
