A Pink AK-47 Kind of Birthday

A Pink AK-47 Kind of Birthday

Pink might just be the new black. One of our readers, Brian Benson, sent us some pictures of his wife’s birthday gift—a custom-built Bulgarian AK-47. Although Hello Kitty might not be our typical cup-o-tea, this particular rifle may have converted a few of us.

Updated: The custom buttstock was hand-carved by Scott Bilger and the cerakote paint was applied by Dave Webster.

 

Not only does the butt stock display the famous feline, the bright rifle is outfitted with a bayonet. Pictured below, Susan walks in her shot. She takes aim at her targets (two 9-pound watermelons) from 75 yards away.

And with a little tanerite and a lot of skill, Susan obliterates her targets. Such delicious, fruity shrapnel.

Don’t be fooled by the pink exterior… guys don’t even mind shooting this gun. Brian poses with the hardcore, bubblegum-colored AK-47.

Have a badass piece of weaponry you would like us to see? Send it to editor@cat5.com.
