The “Beer Can” AR-15

A friend of mine lives up in Michigan where pop cans and beer cans have a $0.10 deposit that is paid when you buy them, and then you return the can to the store and get your $0.10 back. Picking up cans is a big thing in Michigan, and hardly anyone tosses a can in the trash.
My buddy’s neighbor likes to drink a lot of beer, and apparently worked out a deal that my friend can take them back to the store and keep the deposit. He decided that the free money should go towards one thing: building an AR-15.


Here’s the specs:
New Frontier polymer stripped lower
Palmetto State Armory lower parts kit
ATI strike force stock w/scorpion recoil system
ATI scorpion grip
Rainier Arms mil spec buffer tube, spring, buffer
Anderson Manuf. Ambi sling plate
BCM blemished flat top upper w/ M4 feed ramps

I think it’s awesome, and that’s 6700+ cans of beer. That’s a lot of beer.
