Gift Idea for your Gunner: AR.5 Bottle Opener

    Why 80% an AR-15 receiver when you can 50% one and never use it in a firearm, ever? My gut answer would be to never go halfsies on a receiver, especially if it cannot be used in a firearm. But, my gut answer would be wrong…

    Nelson Precision Manufacturing has found a perfectly valid reason to shrink a receiver down to 50% and keep it from being used as a firearm – using it as a bottle opener. (Don’t mix alcohol and guns, boys and girls).

    Nelsom Precision Manufacturing makes and sells the AR.5 Bottle Opener. Fashioned after America’s favorite modern sporting rifle lower, the AR.5 is a fantastic little gift for the firearm enthusiast in your life (note- you qualify as “in your life” if you need an excuse to buy this for yourself). The AR.5 is manufactured from billet 6061 aluminum and Type III hard coat anodized, just like its real-steel big brother.

    To Quote Nelson:

    These pocket size bottle openers are as cool as your full size pea shooter and screams F***in Merica! Each of these freedom loving mini AR lower bottle openers are manufactured in house to insure the quality of our product is never sacrificed and are proudly made in the U.S.A. The AR.5 “A better way to assault your favorite beverage”

    Those interested can pick up the standard version or their USMC special edition AR.5 from their website. Retail is set at $30.
