Well, the man behind it, Joerg Sprave, have conceived a new system that, to the joy of crossbow enthusiasts, will be available soon. Made by EK Archery based on the company’s Cobra system, the Cobra RX Adder Tactical Repeating Crossbow is described as the “modernized version of the famous repeating “Chu-ko-nu” crossbow that features a Sprave designed magazine that allows for up to 5 EK proprietary 7.5-inch cabin bolts to be loaded and shot simply by pushing down the lower level.

Death From The Sky: Russian Arms Maker Proposed A Flying Assault Rifle

What you are looking at is a patent filed with the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property (an equivalent of USPTO) by Russian arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey in 2018 that feels somewhat like a weapon straight out Iron Sky (2012, Entertainment One). It is a drone that was apparently designed around a conventional assault rifle which is kind of wacky if you ask me. We all know how long a clip lasts and so… like, why would a presumably combat drone limit itself with 30-something rounds? Perhaps, it could accept drum magazine? It possibly could.

U.S. Army Actually Had A 3D-Printed Grenade Launcher Called RAMBO

This is RAMBO, but it has nothing to do with the protagonist from the 80s movie franchise adaption of David Morrell’s 1972 novel, First Blood. This RAMBO here is not a person; it is a weapon – a grenade launcher to be exact. What makes RAMBO so special is, it is grenade launcher made almost exclusively from addicted manufacturing, AKA 3D printing, and it actually fires, wait for it… 3D-printed munition. And the name there? It actually stands for Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistics Ordnance. Pretty sure it is not a nod to the fictional hero. Continue reading U.S. Army Actually Had A 3D-Printed Grenade Launcher Called RAMBO

While Ladies’ Have Pepper-spray, Men Has This: A Self-defense Coin Purse

Rarely do you see the words ‘Coin Purse’ and ‘Self-defense’ in the same sentence in a product name. In fact, we have not see any, well that’s until EASYANT Mini Outdoor EDC Coin Purse Bag Men Utility Self-Defense Multi-Tool comes along. Despite a mouthful, the product name doesn’t quite say what it is and so, please allow me to explain. EASYANT Mini Outdoor EDC Coin Purse Bag Men Utility Self-Defense Multi-Tool is a leather coin purse small enough to be snapped onto any belt and yet big enough to deliver some pretty serious whacks. Continue reading While Ladies’ Have Pepper-spray, Men Has This: A Self-defense Coin Purse

Yikes. Maker Of AK-47 Assault Rifle Revealed Kamikaze Drone

Drones that kill are nothing new, but one that reminds the world of the horrific images of Japanese’s WWII warplanes doing Kamikaze run is disturbingly new. Such was what maker of AK-47 assault rifle, Russian arms manufacturer Kalashnikov, has unveiled. Jointly developed by Kalashnikov and Russian UAV specialist ZALA AERO, this unmanned combat aerial system called KYB-UAV was unveiled at the International Defence Exhibition (IDEX) in UAE, late last month. Continue reading Yikes. Maker Of AK-47 Assault Rifle Revealed Kamikaze Drone

If Cobra Commander Was Real, He Would Have Use This Custom H&K XM8

Converting and/or modding real firearms into cartoon-inspired look is not the bestest of ideas. I don’t need to explain why is it so, but man, this fully-functional Heckler & Koch XM8 assault rifle converted from a H&K SL8 with a color scheme, complete with weathered effect, inspired by 80s action cartoon G.I. Joe’s super baddy Cobra Commander is too awesome not to give it its due complimentary words. I mean, seriously, just look at the thing. It is an absolute beauty! Continue reading If Cobra Commander Was Real, He Would Have Use This Custom H&K XM8

Pakistan Gifts Saudi Crown Prince Gold-plated H&K Submachine Gun

What looks like a gun skin for popular Battle Royale multiplayer online game, PlayerUnknown Battleground AKA PUBG, is actually a real-life embossed golden Heckler & Koch MP5. Yes! This thing is real! This one-off, custom submachine based on German firearms maker Heckler & Koch MP5 features a gold-plated body, barrel, safety switch, trigger and magazine with the golden body and magazine further boast some rather intricate designs. Man, it really does look like a gun skin for PUBG, except that the game does not have a H&K MP5. The closest to the MP5 in the game is the UMP9 (which is obviously, a fictional weapon like the rest of the in-game weapons). Continue reading Pakistan Gifts Saudi Crown Prince Gold-plated H&K Submachine Gun

France Security Firm’s Anti-Drone Gun Looks A Thing From Sci-Fi Series

We have featured quite a few anti-drone measures which are mostly weapons of sort, including a gleeful and not-so-serious anti-drone shotgun, as well as a home drone detection system. As far as gun-like weapons go, there are handful, but honestly speaking, nothing works look cool. I know. It don’t need to (look cool), but it will be awesome if it did, right? And then, we saw this: the UAV Scrambler 300 Anti-Drone Gun that, like the DroneShield’s, actually looked dope. Continue reading France Security Firm’s Anti-Drone Gun Looks A Thing From Sci-Fi Series

Meet The Real Life Spear of Longinus From Evangelion

Today I found out there was actually a replica of the Spear of Longinus as seen on the cult anime series, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Spear of Longinus, if you don’t already know, is one of the many biblical references in the series. It appeared in the original series several times, including what-I-thought was the most breathtaking moment when Eva Unit 00 piloted by Rei hurled the Spear of Longinus like a javelin into the Earth’s orbit, killing the Angel loitering in the orbit. Continue reading Meet The Real Life Spear of Longinus From Evangelion

U.S. Marines Called Live Customer Support In The Midst Of A Firefight

Here’s a story that you may prompt you to dismiss it as some tall tale if it wasn’t told by from the person involved. It was about customer support… for firearms. You see, Barrett, the maker of firearms best known for the M-107A anti-material sniper rifle, has live customer support. OK. That part isn’t quite surprising. Perhaps, the military’s armorers would need to call it to find what’s up with some functionality or fault. No big deal, but there was a peculiar case where a Marine called in regarding a M-107A.50 BMG rifle had a fault that needs urgent attention because, he was in the middle of a firefight in Afghanistan. Like, seriously. Continue reading U.S. Marines Called Live Customer Support In The Midst Of A Firefight
