Ah, the Battle Mug. A nearly indestructible beverage container that sports a crenelated strike bezel, full length picatinny rails, a unique serial number and looks freaking awesome. We tested Optics Planet’s Battle Mug last year, and following that display of awesomeness there is now a similar mug on my desk (serial #0039). There was only one issue with the original mug, though: the price tag. Not everyone has $200+ sitting around to drop on a hydration device. So, just as with AR-15 rifles and magazines, there’s now a polymer version available. ThinkGeek has it for $45, and while it looks the same this version probably won’t laugh off a .45 ACP round like the original does. Nor will it be as proficient at busting open coconuts. And I don’t want to even think what will happen when a pound of Tannerite is detonated under it. Still, it looks cool!
I smell another test. And microphones with fuzzy things.
How about the 1/2 pond of Tannerite inside of it?
How accurate is the polymer mug if mounted with a surefire, foward grip, and red dot???
Inquiring minds want to know…
Also can it be put in the freezer to keep beer cold?
I am reminded of an old Red Skelton routine where he poles himself in the nose with his fork and comments, “I thought I was taller.”
If you really need the Red Dot to find your mouth I think you might qualify as a person with a drinking problem.
I don’t have a drinking problem i have a running out of beer and sweet tea problem
I dunno. Only have iron sights on mine. 🙁
The keltec version.
I wish it didn’t have a permanently attached carry handle. I really don’t. I wish I could attach my own so it would be flipped to the way it’s attached on the poly version so I could rest my thumb on the rear sight aperture.
That was freekin awesome!
GET A WINDSCREEN FOR THAT MIC!!!!!
Forty five bucks for a plastic cup? Make it ten (either dollars apiece or cups for that price) and you’ve got a deal.
A crenelated strike bezel is not something I want adorning my coffee mug. An accident waiting to happen is what that is.
Ok, I was all set to get that bad boy for my husband, but HAND WASH ONLY?! Seriously?
Only Optics Planet could find a way to make a coffee mug over-priced.
So if I wait even longer then I can get the sure-to-follow Tapco version for $30…
I would rather it just be a big empty brass shell casing. Mehhhhh.
Now THAT is a great idea.
Ok, I really like that mug! Must have!
