DeWalt-16, how Rambo would remodel

[David Wiggins] has sent some info on this DeWALT M-16 gun mod to Toolmonger. Inspired by a picture of an earlier version back in 2003, he decided to go a step further. He already had the M-16 and only lives a few miles from a DeWalt factory service location so he was able to get original stickers and battery casings. After some careful dremmeling and a layer of Krylon, he had the DeWalt-16. Lets be clear, this thing still shoots bullets, not nails.

If modding your M-16 to be a DeWalt power tool is just too manly, you could always go with the Hello Kitty AR-15.

    Well. It’s a hack. You fail.

    actually, it’s head scratchingly stupid. it might be something akin to a case mod, but it’s not a hack any more than the Oscar Meyer hot dog car is a hack.

    awsome, but now tool makers are actually making tools look like guns, take the makita auto feed screwdriver for example : looks like an AK to me

    Ding Ding Ding!!

    wow, it really is an m-16. and it appears to be a relatively new one too, usually you’ll find pre-86 ban guns floating around with this kind of thing happening- too many of these guns are wasted on hollywood- but this looks like a new one, and it seems- without seeing the internals- to be the real deal.

    Use the juice in that battery pack to shoot lightning bolts or something — then you’ve got yourself a hack. :p

    When I first saw this I though it was a cordless drill repackaged into a rifle… but it wasn’t. ):

    How the hell does that look like an AK? That looks nothing like any gun I’ve ever seen.

    Well done, but as a visual statement, the “Hello Kitty” rev is still the cat’s meow.

  11. Doomstalk says:

    Am I the only one who thinks making a gun look like a toy/power tool is a bad idea? How long before you see people working with actual nail guns getting shot by the police?

  12. Orv says:

    @10: If you’re waving a nail gun at the police you deserve to be shot, for stupidity if nothing else.

    Isnt that an M4?

    I found your blog via Google while searching for this tool and your post looks very interesting for me. Keep up the good work.
