F-1 Firearms and Zac Brown goes leather at SHOT Show 2017

So new it’s not even on the homepage yet, so new you have to go to Vegas and SHOT Show2017 to see, feel and experience it.

I guess it’s hard to resist releasing pictures of new products as soon as they are taken, and F-1 Firearms is no exception.

These “leather love” options are being released for AR-15s. Unfortunately only two pictures were released so far.

F-1 Firearms and Zac Brown teamed up for epic custom options available February 2017. Will be released at shot show.

Three different options visible on the picture below. Having to chose, I think my preference is the “brown gator” look and feel.


I can see a few issues with choosing leather for a rifle, on the other hand Blaser have been offering some sensational rifles with leather and other cosmetics. Check the Blaser booth at IWA as a reference.

For the right rifle I can see it being the thing, and who are we to ask for fewer options?

If you’re into his music, you can read more about the Zac Brown Band here.



Bonus picture – please note the picture below has nothing to do with F-1 Firearms, but if you prefer fur over leather this could be an option.

I’m heading to the range tomorrow, and the forecast says -16C (3 F), so the furry thing above and a warm barrel would be my option for sure.

    Just when you thought companies couldn’t get any more gimmicky….. BAM !!!!!

  • Harry’s Holsters

    I like the leather but the fur is over the top. Might sell well to Russian billionaires.

    • ostiariusalpha

      Well, if your wife/significant other is into wearing Ugg boots…

      …then you’ve made a mistake in your partner choice. Please don’t encourage them by buying furry firearms accessories.

      • Dougscamo

        Gotta do something with that beaver….

      • Nick

        Next they’re going to have a Croc pattern.

    • Chewbacca


  • Edeco

    Mk, can they do just like a hard car steering wheel kind of leather, tends to be a herring-bone looking stitch. Black on a pistol grip, tube foreand and A2 stock…

    • Nick

      Let’s get some brown baseball stitch or maybe some Alcantara ala Audi .

      • Edeco

        Yup. All my leather shoes, belts, etc are black except for my highest protection level boots which were only available in brown, so must be black or charcoal for me, but yes baseball stitch and/or car-upholstery cloth.

  • Graham2

    The only animal product that a rifle should be covered in is jerky.

    Or bacon.

    Yes, bacon would be better.

    Mmm, rifle bacon!

    • CharlesH

      The best reason for full-auto, wrap the bacon on the barrel and open fire for 1 to 5 minutes to cook.

  • Rick O’Shay

    I’d rather not shoot things that look like my wife’s purse.

    • QuadGMoto

      Or her dog?

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    I think somebody put Drano in his cocaine.

  • GhostTrain81

    … I think we are reaching the bottom of the barrel in terms of new ways to milk the AR-15 platform.

    • Dan

      Please don’t say that. I don’t want someone to take that as a challenge.

    • GaryOlson

      I didn’t see that leather included parts of the hide which allow access for milking.

  • SP mclaughlin

    Chewbacca AR-15?!

  • D

    I need a shower after looking at those pictures.

  • Jim Slade

    Is it more accurate since they put hair around it?

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      No but it has to wear a different bathing suit.

      • GaryOlson

        Brazilian wax style or Daisy Mae denim short style?

        • Dougscamo

          Can’t be a Brazilian….too much fur….

    • Edeco

      Well, the fur helps estimate crosswind and dampen unwanted harmonics, so yes, totally.

    • wetcorps

      Maybe if it had a hair trigger…

  • Mmmtacos

    Thanks Zac Brown, now we can have AR furniture to match our Lucchese boots.

  • iksnilol

    I hate to say it, but that fur stock would be nice for hunting here in Norway during the winter.

    • ostiariusalpha

      Until it gets water on it, then it would be annoying. Typically if you wrap a rifle with a fur, you put the fur side in.

      • iksnilol


  • pun&gun

    This is all nuts, but that Chewbacca rifle is a special kind of nuts.

  • Sasquatch

    I’m not about the fancy leather but a plain trapper/cowboy old-school leather would be nice. Something sorta like this. With maybe some leather tassels or something https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/63eb699ae7e990715d2f217e13266836764ded6254f9386ce811577775c7e4b5.jpg

  • FulMetlJakit

    Thinking both themes would look better on early 1960s AR-10 with wood furniture.
    Maybe with a walrus ivory grip?

  • Spikey DaPikey

    When Furries go hunting..?

  • Cary Starke

    I have a Leather wrapped AR15 . And I love it . Most of these weapons just sit around anyway . I’m going to my AR10 when we get knocked off the electrical grid anyway.

  • MrPotatoHead

    And the guns with da fur….

    • Cary Starke

      Dress for success

  • valorius

    I’d need to see a full pic of the AR done up in leather to opine intelligently.

    I thought about something like that but I had this conversation in my head. “I really want to mod out my gun with leather but I also want to use it” So I never did the leather. Instead I just make my holsters and be happy.

  • Nils

    That fur stock looks like a painter roller.
