Ameriflage Concept Is Reality | Thanks Dugan!

Dugan Ashley was a genius before his time with concepts like Ameriflage, embracing the Sig P320 before it was cool, and the epic LMG Special mashup. Youtube didn’t quite know what to do with the guy, his popularity becoming stronger after he ceased to produce videos, CarniK Con has become a bit of a cult favorite.

While I can’t say for certain that Water Transfer Printing’s new American Flag hydro dipping film was inspired by The Dug, I sure as hell want to believe it. The new finish has not only glimpses of Old Glory, but also 10 of the 27 amendments worked into the design as well.

While Water Transfer Printing already offered the “One Nation” hydro dipping film, the new “Amendments” will appeal to the more die-hard patriot, three-per, Mellon Label enthusiast, and other folks looking for a dose of freedom with their firearm.

The new film isn’t reserved for firearms only though, for those of you unfamiliar with the process, it can be applied to just about anything that is capable of being submersed in water. You can learn more about the new “Amendment” pattern hydro dipping film over at Water Transfer Printing’s website HERE. No price is listed due to the cost fluctuating based on the job.

    It’s articles like this that remind me how much I will miss Alex C’s gun reviews

  • I miss CarniK Con. I hope Dugan is doing okay. Anyone know his status?

    • “My Body is a Temple!” literally was the only spit take of my adult life…. I also hope is doing well.

    • BrandonAKsALot

      He’s still active on Instagram.

      • Sam

        This makes me happy. I’ll have to check it out. I know he was diagnosed with MS a couple years ago and I figured that’s why production stopped.

      • Y-man

        As CarniK Con?

        • BrandonAKsALot

          Just as Dugan

  • William Nelson

    Ah CarikCon – the “Operator’s Hotline,” video had me laughing for hours.

    [whispered voice: “Spec Ops…”]

  • Ron

    Where do you get the eagle head attachment for the NVG plate?

  • Phillip Cooper

    Why give this asshat more exposure?

    • iksnilol

      You lost all respect by calling Dugan “CarnikCon” Ashley an asshat.

    • alex waits

      Terrible. Dugan Ashley is a national treasure.

    • CourtLively

      The butthurt is strong in this one.

    • AC97

      “Freedom America Ale, you don’t like it-you can go-to-hell”

    • RocketScientist

      Honest question: what makes Dugan an asshat?

    • BillC

      There’s a special place in Hell for you, Commie.

      • iksnilol

        No no, don’t lump him in with me. He’s worse than a commie.

    • Sam

      If they didn’t edit out curse words here, I’ll call you something very mean.

      • Use asshat that gets through—LOL

        • jamezb

          LOL Phil.. now I’m gigglin’ !! I wonder if douchecanoe works? It’s a New Zealand curse word!

    • DonDrapersAcidTrip

      yeah god forbid anyone but humorless nutsack old grandpas be allowed in the firearm club

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    I shoot bullets with little pieces of the One True Cross mixed in the powder.

    • Ben Warren

      I’ve tried it, and overall I think I get better mileage from steel-core bullets made from one of the Holy Nails. Ballistics are better and the wound channels they leave in heathens and demons are absolutely unspeakable.

      I think my attempt to make a bayonet from the Spear of Destiny was a bridge too far, though.

      • junyo

        Guys, you have to think about wounding mechanisms.

        Sterling silver hollowpoints with a drop of holy water inside the cavity and a hard wood sabot/stake atop that. Each round is also engraved with a hurtful saying like “Did you gain weight?” or “That’s what you Mom said last night!” or “You’re not my real nemesis!” that both aid in fragmentation and lower the target’s self esteem. They’re loaded to +P+P+P pressure, but since I don’t shoot Glocks, it’s perfectly safe. And chambered in 10mm because I’m not a 4 year old girl. Also each round is blessed by the Pope, an imam, a Buddhist priest and Richard Dawkins.

        One shot stops on most things living, dead, undead, supernatural or extra-dimensional. In fairness, Godzilla took 3, so shot placement is still occasionally useful.

  • Black Dots

    This camo will be highly effective in high threat areas with large amounts of ambient patriotism.

  • Edeco

    Like the Zevon of youtube gun channels; wry humor, underappreciated, had to leave us too soon. They look alike, as noted in one episode.

    • Bill

      Cool reference

  • droog

    Now you’ve done it, I’m now gonna have have to re-watch a bunch of CarniK Con videos, good stuff.

  • BrandonAKsALot

    The first Carnik-con video I watched was the AK vs AR video and they won me over. The sten video where he talks about the sights being on the side killed me.

  • RSG

    Dugan is a legend and a true 2A advocate. He surely got dealt a filthy hand. I often wonder how he’s doing health wise whenever I pass his channel on my sub list. Yeah, I know the channel is defunct, but I can’t bring myself to unsub from it. I keep thinking if I just “believe” hard enough, suddenly a huge swath of videos will start appearing in my stream, with the first one titled “Remission”!!!!

    • iksnilol

      You can’t just remission MS IIRC.

      • Y-man

        So sad to hear, is that what happened? I have missed CarniK Con.

        • iksnilol

          From what I know, he was diagnosed with MS. Chronical neurolgoical condition, it’s crap but I think it is livable with.

  • A bearded being from beyond ti

    Where did he get his hands on all those lovely machine guns for that one video?

    • Brett

      When you pick up the phone and Dugan on the other end, you don’t ask questions.

  • Michael Lubrecht

    Has to be sung: “Ameriflage! Fvck yeah!

  • Major Tom

    Needs Ameriflage on the guns too.

  • noob

    I feel like it should be a skin in a video game rather than a hydrodip in real life
