A couple of weeks ago I ran into a very interesting product. I’m sure it’s a tool you’ll find invaluable. What is it? It’s a .50 caliber round made into a bottle opener. Yes i’m kidding about it being invaluable but it’s sure to start some conversations. They are called “The Alpha Opener”.
I received two of the most popular Alpha Openers. They work well and if you can’t pop the cap with one of these you need to take a few trips to the gym.The first is a .50 cal polished FMJ and the other is a .50 cal cleaned up but not polished. This version has an honest to goodness API bullet. The company also makes another opener milled from a standard AR flash suppressor. The company, Alpha Opener.com has a variety of other products including other types of openers as well as necklaces with .50 cal bullets on them and so on. Prices range from $7.00 to $35.00 depending on the product and finish.
Here’s what the company has to say about itself and how they prepare these bottle openers: Founded in 2012, in SW Missouri, The Alpha Opener aims to be the coolest opener on the market. Every single AlphaOpener is made by hand. We take actual once-fired .50 BMG Military-once fired brass and tumble, mill, size, sand, de-burr, and finally press a new bullet in it. I just ordered some 750 gr Barnes solid brass bullets to do a special run. We are proudly 100% Made in the USA by utilizing: American made brass; American made bullets; and last but not least, American labor.
