My mind boggled when I saw this range of accessories for the AR-15 rifle.
There are thousands of AR-15 accessories on the market, but none are cooler (or more absurd) than Tracey Copeland and Andrew BeGole’s “Firearm-Mounted Rescue Tool.”
Their patent, which they received earlier this month, describes multiple accessories first responders can affix in place of an AR-15’s buttstock and buffer tube. These accessories include a fireman’s ax, a crowbar end, and other tools designed to breach doors and windows.
“We both had friends that are special forces, friends that are SWAT, friends that are firefighters, and we were just thinking: What if we could put some kind of breaching tool, some sort of halligan tool, on the back of an AR,” Copeland told Guns.com. “That’s just kind of the idea behind it was to see if that’s even feasible.”
There's more at the link.
I know they used to refer to the Thompson submachinegun as a 'chopper', but isn't this taking the meme a little too far?
