A custom built AR-15 in a caliber that has slowly been gaining in popularity. 6.5 Grendel has even been adapted for use in some AK rifles. If I had one criticism of the rifle in the photos, it’s the “skull” finish on the upper and lower receivers. If it was a matte stainless finish like the barrel, then the two-tone appearance might sell it faster. As it stands, this ones been on an auction site for a while. (GRH)
A small polymer pistol that has an odd characteristic; it’s a top loading, stripper clip fed semi-auto with no detachable magazine. Chambered in .380 ACP, it would be a decent concealed carry option if it wasn’t for it’s lack of a standard magazine. The Grendel P-12 is the other model that actually uses a detachable magazine.

[ NEWS ] 11th century Viking broadsword to make up to $205,000 at Christie’s
A Viking broadsword looted during the battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066 is to auction at Christie’s London this summer with an estimate of £80,000-120,000 ($136,873-205,309).
The lot is thought to have been taken by a member of the de Bohun family, who would later carry the ancestral sword during the first war of Scottish independence in the 14th century.
Dernagh O’Leary, a spokesperson for Christie’s, told the BBC: "Whilst it cannot be proved, it is not at all inconceivable that the blade of the present sword was captured or taken as a trophy by de Bohun at Hastings and was later remounted to become a family sword.
"The present sword, whilst not being a war sword, would have served as a clear badge of identity with its gold and enamelled coat of arms on the pommel and eminently more practical as a side arm around camp when not mounted and armed for battle.
"It is therefore entirely possible that this sword was present at Bannockburn in June 1314, if not actually on the field of battle."
The lot is incredibly rare, its age and history making it one of the most significant British artefacts to come to auction in recent years.
