Geissele ICON Rifle November – Teufel Hunden

    It’s October, and it’s time for the fourth Geissele ICON rifle. This one is red metallic and inspired by the World War II memoir of the United States Marine Eugene Sledge, based on the notes he kept tucked away in a pocket-sized Bible which he carried with him during battles at Peleliu and Okinawa.

     A very special selector. 

    Here’s the description from Geissele:

    The Geissele ICON for November 2020 is…“Teufel Hunden”

    This Geissele ICON Rifle commemorates the Birth of the United States Marine Corps on November 10th, 1775, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, at the historic Tun Tavern.  Like all Geissele ICON Rifles, the “Teufel Hunden” is not available for purchase. It is a one-of-a-kind Rifle and the only way to obtain it is to be selected as the sole winner of this giveaway.

    Built on our Super Duty Line, the “Teufel Hunden” is a rock solid, feature packed, rifle sporting an in-house 16” CHF barrel chambered in 5.56mm. Our Geissele Length gas system and a Super Gas Block ensure reliability and a smooth recoil impulse.  An SSA-E X with Lightning Bow® trigger, exclusive to the Super Duty line, offers the perfect balance between a classic M4 trigger bow and our Super Dynamic flat bow, enhancing your accuracy capabilities.  An Ultra Duty Lower Parts Kit with its included Ultra Precision™ 5-Axis Trigger Guard and a Maritime Bolt Catch completes the lower.

    A rifle celebrating the heritage of the US Marine Corps would not be complete without the ability to affix a bayonet, so we have included our Super Stabby Bayonet Mount, which allows mounting of the included M9 Bayonet.  The 15” MK16 Super Modular Rail’s smooth finish and rounded profile create a comfortable surface to work with as well as endless versatility for attaching accessories. Exclusive to this ICON Rifle is also a completely unique Super Charging Handle featuring a larger SCH lever on the ejection port side, and an ACH lever on the other, all in a very rare, red, type 3 anodize.

    All of these parts come together to make a rifle that is both aggressive and truly unique to honor the Marine Corps.

    The MSRP of this complete package (if Geissele were to sell it) is $3,500.

    This month’s Icon rifle is heavily influenced by the Teufel Hunden working at Geissele, to celebrate the United States Marine Corps 245 years of history. 

    The patch.

    My favorite ICON rifle is still “The Last Man Standing”. The second one was “Freedom’s Remembrance”.
