    “a blank firing upper receiver that can launch soda cans, t-shits and more”
    I don’t really know what “T” stands for, but I definitely don’t want to be down range when t-shits are being shot!

        Always tactical.

      Lol. Crap. Fixed. Thanks.

  • zellgato

    I wonder.. I dont’ think i’ve ever (knowingly ) seen blanks to purchase.

    • Rick O’Shay

      If I remember right, they’ll sell you blanks too.

      • And there are blank crimping dies for reloaders.

  • faxification

    Nice idea.
    So we can shoot some varmints with a t-shirt in the face.

  • Rick O’Shay

    Any DPMS-patterned .308 lower. It won’t fit on an Armalite .308.

    • Nicks87

      Plus DPMS has two different patterns of .308 lowers.

      • AK™

        Since its on a AP upper,it’s gotta be Gen 1.

    So I’m guessing they got a pass from ATF. As I recall the feds had concerns that the long fat tube could easily be converted to a suppressor by adding a baffle stack and end cap.

    • The issue wasn’t that it was a silencer, but that it could become a SBR. IIRC it could chamber normal rounds, and the barrel wasn’t strong enough to actually stop the bullet.

      • Giolli Joker

        IIRC it is designed to not be able to chamber normal rounds.
        If I had to guess an ATF concern, I’d say it would about it falling in the DD category.
        However the .223 version has been in the market for a while.

        • The recall letter said it would be a SBR or an AOW (depending on what type of lower it was put on).

          • Giolli Joker

            OK, I see I was trying to apply logic to an ATF letter, my bad.
            Pretty sure it is a blank only barrel, however.

            “Pretty sure it is a blank only barrel, however.”

            It is now.
            The first gen models had barrels that were plugged with a threaded cap that could be unscrewed.

        • Machinegunnertim

          The barrel has to be rifled and larger than .50 to fall into D.D. status.

    “Designed using an Aero M5 upper deceiver
    I got nothin’…

    • Giolli Joker

      Actually they wrote “deciever”, so they did not get even the spelling…

  • Ahab

    I’m still holding out for the .50 bmg harpoon hit. That should be a whale of a good time.

    • Ebby123

      A wholly excellent post.

    • AlanHan

      I’ll just call you Ishmael, if that’s OK…

      • iksnilol

        Don’t, he might feel tempted to knock the hat right off your head.

  • Saint Stephen the Obvious

    Great! Now lots of mall ninjas shooting grappling hooks but are too out of shape to climb the rope.

  • Ebby123

    Is it compatible with DPMS GEN-1 Lower receiver or a DPMS GEN-2 lower receiver? They are definitely not the same thing.

  • b0x3r0ck

    Someone really needs to make an T.R.D.D (Tactical Rapid Deployed Drone) for this thing.

    • GaryOlson

      I was thinking of using this and the net for a Tactical Rapid Drone Disabler. Guy down the street has been warned.

  • Renegade

    X-Products has been “designing the following accessories” since before the .223 can cannon was released.

  • Kevin Craig

    “Proprietary blanks”?

    • bluecheesedressing

      Killed my intrest right there.

  • 22winmag

    Firearns not T-shirt throwers.

  • Brett baker

    It IS cheaper than an M79. COLA OUTBOUND! FIRING FOR AFFECT!

  • Raptor Fred
  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    Just announced? Wait what? I’ve owned one of these for a couple months now (Yes, the .308 variant.) They were even running a 30% off sale.

  • Matt Taylor

    Gen-1 was not designed that way if I recall…
