Yesterday I posted about finding a company to customize an AR lower receiver for my wife. Today let me tell you how that project turned out.
As I was concocting my plan, I consulted — as I do with all important gun-related things — with my friend John Johnston of Ballistic Radio and Citizens Defense Research fame. I told him I wanted to build a rifle for Sandy based on a lower receiver engraved with “NASTY WOMAN” and “SHE PERSISTED.”
John suggested it would be imprudent to build this into a functioning rifle for anything other than fun. In the improbable but not impossible event that Sandy had to use the rifle for self-defense, she would not want a rifle with these phrases entered into evidence.
So, I ended up having Infectious Design (again) engrave and Cerakote (in pink champagne, Sandy’s favorite drink) the lower receiver and gave it to Sandy as a 7th anniversary gift (on 02/20/21) to use as a paper weight.
I was really pleased with how it came out and Sandy was very touched by the gesture.
With John’s guidance, I ended up constructing a rifle for Sandy consisting of Bravo Company USA BCM® MK2 Standard 14.5″ Mid Length (ENHANCED Light Weight-*FLUTED*) Upper Receiver Group w/ MCMR-13 Handguard (with some other fancy do-dad options) and a Primary Weapons Systems MK1 MOD2 Complete Rifle Lower. I snapped the two halves together, topped it off with an optical sight, back up iron sights, and a weapon mounted light, and the rifle was good to go.
Of course, to make it a proper Feminist Assault Rifle, I took the lower to Infectious Design to have it engraved and fill painted in Sandy’s preferred pink champagne color.
The Feminist Assault Rifle came out great and I was happy to be able to use have my Sociology of Guns seminar students shoot it during our class field trip.
