Redskin-themed AR-15 (courtesy washington.cbslocal.com)

A guy walks into a bar with an AR-15 . . . no wait. That’s not it. How can it be? The story doesn’t take place in Georgia. washington.cbslocal.com reports that a company called Terminal Performance built a Redskins-themed AR-15. OMG! “The NFL will conduct an investigation into the apparent unauthorized use of team trademarks, spokesperson Greg Aiello says.” Heads-up! If it’s a one-off rifle it’s protected as “art.” Ish. Anyway, the Redskins AR-15’s SOLD OUT. I reckon the brouhaha improves the rifle’s value, which sold for $2k. As does the awesome ad copy the owner wrote to sell the gun . . .

Angels will be heard singing ‘Hail to the Redskins’ in the background as you feast your eyes on this one of a kind tribute to our nation’s capitol home team. The National Football League’s Washington Redskins take center stage in an extraordinary custom AR-15 build. Decked out in burgundy and gold, this weapon system is a must for the Redskin fan that has everything. Nothing else like this ‘Skins carbine exists on planet earth, from the patented swirl-dipped color matching optic cover to the full length black widow rail.

One look at this football themed rifle conjures images ranging from Sammy Baugh to John Riggins and the hogs; and from Darrel Green to RG3. Capitalizing on the legend of the Washington Redskins, This AR-15 has what it takes to honor the Super Bowl winning football team. Everything including the upper receiver, lower receiver, barrel, grips, stock and optic scream the burgundy and gold. As with all of our projects, this firearm is 5.56/.223 made with all American parts by American gunsmiths right here in Virginia.

  1. What a perfect example of the “gunz r manlee” stereotype, as both guns and football are universally only liked by men with size issues.

    This is why we at Everytown for Gun Safety™ hire ex-football players for armed security of our paid disciples.

  2. That thing is hideous! However, if they had it inOrange and black tiger stripes with “Who Dey” on it it would be a future purchase.

      • +1

        But its probably even easier to justify a ridiculous markup if its for a sucker that puts his team before his pride.

      • Don’t you mean DALLAS blue and silver? 🙁

        I’m cool with the Redskins AR-15. Guy probably has his pickup painted the same way.

        • Honestly, I never knew the difference between Dallas blue and Honolulu blue. I always thought they were blue until some die hard Lion’s fans enlightened me.

          Kind of how I grew up hearing UofM referred to as blue and gold…..turns out that pisses off Norte Dame fans. It’s blue and maize. I didn’t even know maize was a freaking color.

  3. Can I get one in Dallas Cowboy’s blue and silver, with commemorative dates marking the 5 times they went to the SuperBowl? If I get one with a Troy Ax CQB stock, that would provide plenty of room for writing in years and bowl numbers.

  4. It only sold for 2K? If the parts they used were even halfway decent, and the Eotech on there is legit, then I dont see them making very much money on this build…

  5. I can just see a huge expansion of the market to all college football tans, NFL fans, and a few other sports fans. How about sponsoring a stadium…just like Mercedes Benz does the Superdome?

  6. This is why I don’t like the AR and culture that goes with it. This is juvenile. Can anyway imagine doing up manly guns like the M-1, M-1A or AK like this. Guns are supposed to be made up of wood and metal or at least black plastic. I class this object of art with the pink pistol.

  7. Can’t wait for the Seattle Seahawks version. The quote “Why not?” inscribed on the magwell. I bet that f**ker would be loud, too. 😀

  8. Oh man, I would pay a mint for an EAGLES version!

    hmmm I already have the perfect candidate too. I wonder who would do a custom paint job like this?

  9. The various professional teams I support occasionally have random expensive objects (cars, trucks, golf cart/clubs combo, etc) done up in team colors. But outside of hats and t-shirts, I could never see myself driving around in a team-colored car or hitting the green with a pinstriped cart and clubs.

    I’ve only seen one attempt at a pro team truck look pretty good. There was a guy I saw driving a Toyota Tundra that was green and had small yellow pinstripes down the side. Above each of the “Tundra” badging was “The Frozen” and the trademark “T” symbol on the grille was replaced with a Packers-styled “G”. And no, I’m not a Packers fan, but it was subtle and didn’t stand out as an eyesore.

  10. I’m not the only one who would love a Green Bay Packers version. I could show off team support, piss off liberals, and have Costa wet his pants all while enjoying the 2nd Amendment. Maybe I could even take Aaron Rodgers squirrel hunting.

    • Face it: nothing could make Costas drain a stain more than a Redskins-themed “assault weapon”. Somebody should send me the picture.

  11. The whole point of the “Redskins” gun was to promote the Duracoating service they offer. So i would assume they can do any team or logo anyone would like.

  12. Looks like a Lego-AR, if you ask me, which nobody did. It’s not my kind of thing, but to each his own. Rock it out and show your team spirit if you have it. If anything, rather than filing injunctions, the NFL should negotiate some licensing agreements to market these legitimately.
