OMG! A Redskins-Themed Gun! OMG!

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.

      What? Shut up. I’ve been a girl, a Redskins fan, a Football lover, and an avid shooter since birth. Your stereotyping shows your ignorance. Go back to the swamp.

        I hate to be “that guy”, but that’s a joke account. He’s parodying ETGS and is not serious. Simmer down.

      2. avatar SouthernPatriot says:

        I am sure he intended no offense. He wuz jest funnin’!

        1. avatar SD3 says:

          A “Redskins” gun, huh? It’s for shooting cowboys, isn’t it? ‘White’ cowboys…

          ISN’T IT?!?

          RASIS!!! RASIS!!! RASIS!!!

    2. avatar Jen Z says:

      Sorry. Picked up on the sarcasm after I posted. I get prickly about my guns and my football.

      It really does need a font sometimes.

      1. avatar LarryinTX says:

        Yeah, he gotcha. Seems to be having a lot of fun with that, I kinda enjoy it, too!

      2. avatar Jake says:

        Either he was trying to give a humorous commentary on the dumb things that anti-gun people say, or he was trying to get a comment from a woman who liked guns and football so he could ask her out on a date.

        Speaking of, what are you doing Saturday?

      3. avatar Paul W says:

        Guns…football.

        I wish I could combine the two more readily.

      Anybody remember this TV spot?

        No, but thanks for the larf. 🙂

    4. avatar Rich Grise says:

      If by “size issues,” you mean I’ve got a little weenie, then yes, I admit that I don’t have an enormous penis that I can defend myself from thugs with. And I guess that Girlz With Gunz have, not a size issue, but a “don’t have one at all” issue. 😉

    5. avatar William Burke says:

      Actually, it’s not, Shannon. You would know “manly” if you took off the pants FLAME DELETED.

    Costas just pooed a little.

      That is all he can…a little.

  3. avatar DJC says:

    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. avatar Jim R says:

      No accounting for taste, I suppose.

    2. avatar Dracon1201 says:

      And why would they ruin a perfectly good AR-15?

      1. avatar Grumpy in Kali says:

        +1

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

    3. avatar LarryinTX says:

      You mean “Who dat?” Who dat said who dat? God, that was fun! And then they backed it up!

    4. avatar peirsonb says:

      It would sell (slightly) better in Honolulu blue and silver.

      1. avatar Matt G says:

        Put a bunch of foldable do dads on it and I’m sure we could play the Megatron angle…

      2. avatar William Burke says:

        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.

        1. avatar peirsonb says:

          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.

  4. avatar Craig says:

    I can safely say that gun’s color resembles fecal matter.

    1. avatar Nick D says:

      If yours is coming out blood red, it may be time to go see a doctor

      1. avatar SouthernPatriot says:

        Just don’t go the VA until they straighten out their mess!

        1. avatar neiowa says:

          Doubt he has that long to live (or does anyone).

        2. avatar William Burke says:

          The first four words say it all. If you’re going to wait until it’s fixed, time to pick a burial plot.

        3. avatar Rich Grise says:

          When I need it, I use the VAMC at Long Beach, which is kinda exemplary, but Long Beach is filthy rich because of the harbor, which pisses off San Pedro residents no end.

          Epic South Park reference! 🙂

    2. avatar Paul W says:

      So, seen a gastro yet? cause dude, if you’re shitting solid red you got problems that a gun website isn’t gonna address.

  5. avatar Nick D says:

    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.

    1. avatar SouthernPatriot says:

      I want one with Roger’s sig!

    2. avatar peirsonb says:

      Yeah, but what have they done for you this century?

      1. avatar Andy T. says:

        Gave us something to complain about?

      2. avatar William Burke says:

        Built a billion-dollar stadium with public funds!

  6. avatar JoshinGA says:

    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…

  7. avatar C says:

    It offends the leftist on so many levels.

    1. avatar JR says:

      Getting out of bed in the morning offends the leftists on so many levels.

  8. avatar lolinski says:

    Bad colors but looks better than all the boring black ARs.

    1. avatar Alan Longnecker says:

      Racist!

      1. avatar Lolinski says:

        Yeah, blue und wood supremacist und proud of zat!

  9. avatar SouthernPatriot says:

    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?

  10. Somebody beat that AR with an ugly stick, but who cares?

    Because ‘Merica.

  11. avatar tdiinva says:

    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.

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Yeah! Everybody knows those PURPLE pistols are better!

    2. avatar Jason says:

      You’ve obviously never seen the millions of “manly” AK’s in 3rd world countries around the globe and what they do to them…

    3. avatar JR says:

      I think the bronie movement might just make your head explode.

  12. avatar 5.56_Homebrewer says:

    It’s like O.C.C. for guns. Lame.

  13. avatar MichaelB says:

    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. 😀

      GO ‘HAWKS!

      And besides being ugly, I can’t stand the name “REDSKINS”… ugh. But hey, he made 2k… so good for him.

    2. avatar nathanredbeard says:

      Don’t forget the one in purple and gold with “Go Dawgs!”

  14. avatar ValleyForge77 says:

    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?

  15. avatar Bret says:

    I want 2 one for the packers and one for UNC tar heels

    1. avatar Gyufygy says:

      If God wasn’t a Tar Heel, then why’d he make the sky Carolina Blue?

  16. avatar NYC2AZ says:

    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.

  17. avatar former water walker says:

    I bet they’d make a ton with a BEARS ar.

  18. avatar Accur81 says:

    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.

    1. avatar William Burke says:

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

  19. avatar soccerdad1150 says:

    As much as I hate the ‘skins, this is so full of awesome. Can he do an Eagles one?

    1. avatar William Burke says:

      DeSean gonna light y’all up. Two times!

  20. avatar Ralph says:

    A Redskins AR will trade all its ammo for a dud, miss every shot and finish last in any competition.

    1. avatar soccerdad1150 says:

      +1000

    2. avatar ValleyForge77 says:

      DOH! lol

  21. avatar Chris in KY says:

    They could sell a thousand a game if they made them In UK Blue with the Wildcats logo on them.

  22. avatar Bearman93 says:

    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.

  23. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    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.
