***For a much wider selection of "Bullet" Pens, see my sister site:
This is my version of "Turning Swords into Ploughshares".
A real 0.50 caliber Macine Gun Cartridge turned into a Desk Pen.
It is NOT a fancied up brass plated replica.
This cartridge is exactly as it came out of the Gun.!!
You can see the marks from ,the belt, the clip and the extractor.
You can look up the headstamp and find out exactly which Armory it came from and when it was made.
A few of these were actually fired by me while in Vietnam and ended up in my seabag when I came home.
The bullet part is hand turned and fitted by me in my shop here in western New York.
The cartridge casing is then re-necked to mate perfectly with the Bullet.
Just in case anyone gets the wrong idea, The heart of this Pen is the Top of the line "Cross" operating Mechanism.
This ensures not only a long life, but also guarantees that refills are available at all better stationery and office supply stores.
Prior to final assembly, the casing is polished with good old Brasso to a nice warm Glow.
I did NOT coat the casing with Epoxy as is common with a lot of bullet pens. Instead I leave the casing uncoated to allow it to develop that wonderful patina over time, which a real military cartridge acquires.
The brass can be engraved if you wish to have the Pen Personalized.!
The "Bullet" is hand polished to a very silky finish to complement the casing.
For those who want a REAL Military memento, this is the Pen to have.
It also is a great "Thank You" gift for the Veteran in your Life.
It is shipped in a Drawstring Pouch ( There is no Pen Gift Box big enough to hold it ) via Priority Mail, FREE within the USA
The Pen will be accompanied by a certificate of origin and complete care Instructions.
*** NOTE ***
A Marine Corps desk stand is available for this Pen:
I always welcome custom work and can make a Pen out of just about any caliber Rifle cartridge.
Many outdoorsmen enjoy having a pen made using their favourite Hunting caliber.
Anyone who has ever been in a war, will never glorify it, but he will definitely remember it.!
A Marine's wife once said:
"A Veteran is someone who, at one time in his life, made out a blank check to the American People for an amount up to and including his life"
Well Said !!
