A “Flute’d” Firearm? .22LR Flute Firearm Turned in at Buyback

    WeaponsMan picked up on a rather interesting modified firearm that was turned in at a Tampa Florida gun buy-back. It was a .22 bolt-action rifle built into a flute.


    Two rocket launchers and a flute fashioned into a gun were among the weapons turned into the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office’s Gun Swap program on Saturday. A total of 2,541 weapons were exchanged for $75 and tickets to a Tampa Bay Rays home game at five locations throughout the county.


    Sadly, TFB will not the opportunity to rigorously test to flute to see if it hits the right notes. The firearm was sent for destruction other collected weapons include an inert AT-4 and M72 LAW.
