For those of you that have not yet seen it, meet the DeWalt AR-15 nail gun:
Someone released a photo of their AR-15 rifle made up as a DeWalt nail gun. Personally, I love the originality behind it. As one forum poster observed, maybe it should be called a DeWalt ‘Tack Driver’.
When I originally posted this DeWalt AR-15 nail gun several years ago, I had no idea it would become such a popular post. It has actually become one of the most read pages on the GunsHolstersAndGear.com website. I still chuckle about how viral this photo has gone.
Also, if you have not already done so, please read through the comments on this thread and join in on the discussion about this rifle. There is quite a bit of lively chatter regarding its status as an M16, M4 or AR15. Also, which version of which gun… for example: if it is an M4, is it an M4A2 or M4A3. I find it all humorous, and I hope you do as well.
I’m curious: have you ever done anything like this to dress up your gun? Would you consider a Black & Decker paint scheme? How about a Chevy or Ford styling? The truth is a lot of people like to customize their firearms to give them a unique feel and flair.
Gun companies have cashed in on this in the past, creating limited or special edition runs of some firearms. You may have seen some manufacturers rolling out everything from Texas commemoratives to zombie guns. Sometimes these guns carry some collector value, but mostly they are simply an option for someone that wants to stand out from the crowd. Since many gun owners are independent minded, adding a little flair to their rifles make sense.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to dress up one of your guns? Would you be willing to buy a limited run rifle with an unusual paint scheme?
Thanks to one of our readers for sharing this video of the gun in action:
If you watch the video, you can see the gun is capable of full-auto fire. Hopefully, that will help settle some of the arguments in the comments section.
Special note for all of those who have been e-mailing me – I’ve got the Glock 19 holster page up now.
