Spike Tactical ‘Snowflake’ Lower Has 3 Settings: ‘Safe Space,’ ‘Triggered’ and ‘Full Libtard’

Check out all of articles in the Fall edition of Long Range Shooting, GunsAmerica’s newest specialty publication.

Caution: This is not for the faint-hearted. But that’s sorta the point of Spike’s Tactical “Snowflake” lower receiver.

In the video below, Mookie explains the impetus for the Snowflake lower, which has three selections: “Safe Space,” “Triggered” and “Full Libtard.”  LOL.

Warning: there is some NSFW language in the video.

What are your thoughts on the receiver?  Is it too gimmicky or something you’d actually purchase?

    You know, the one for sandy hook should have a kid holding a magazine sitting on the magwell… Grow up guys, quit being offended. If you don’t like it then don’t buy it. I live my life by the “I don’t care what you do with your body or money or time. Just don’t affect my life with it.” mind sety and it works just fine for me. Just saying.

    I’m not a huge fan of anti-fascist, in the modern sense anyway. But my grandpa did fight white supremacists in Europe. So this response to people complaining about spikes support of Charlottesville, which was a white supremacist Gathering is pretty reprehensible. They can make fun of snowflakes and stuff all they want it’s no skin off my back. But I’ll never be buying anything from spikes, because of their response to people saying they shouldn’t support white supremacist.

  • Matt September 29, 2017, 9:02 pm

    This is pretty bad.

  • DrThunder88 September 29, 2017, 5:23 pm

    It would probably be best as just an unfinished billet. It’s the kind of thing I’d see as a novelty paperweight rather than an actual working firearm. I’m not opposed to imbuing the receiver with a bit of humor, but the execution of the joke falls a little flat. It’s like they want to satirize the liberal mentality but don’t have the comedic skills to follow through. “Safe space” and “triggered” are both pretty funny, but “full-libturd” doesn’t make a lot of sense. I’d go with something like “I can’t even”. Instead of the child-like unicorn drawing, make it all butch and stylized like the rest of their logos and emblazoned with “Social Justice Warfare” or some such.

  • Joe Mannix September 29, 2017, 3:48 pm

    To me firearms are tools, not fashion or political statements. I would hate to find myself on the stand after using a weapon with this lower to defend my life. For that reason alone this is a non-starter for me, although is is funny.

  • Mark G Coffey September 29, 2017, 3:29 pm

    Joking about the fire setting on a firearm is appalling. Oh but they have a different political affiliation and philosophy. I love firearms and they’re my life. This is the dumbest damn thing I’ve ever seen. No surprise when I still see imbeciles praising this New York narcissist, grandiose, incompetent Ham. It’ll look great when some half wit shoots some college kids, a reporter, scientist or anyone protesting against racist Nazis.
    Maybe they can make a Kids receiver for the next Sandy Hook. Such people can’t spell American any more than that orange arrogant moron can. I look forward to the demise of such an idiotic company. There’s nothing funny about this in this Climate in particular. No surprise from the lowest common denominator.

    • Joe Mannix September 29, 2017, 3:41 pm

      You lost me at “reporter’ and “orange arrogant moron.”

      • Mark G Coffey September 29, 2017, 4:13 pm

        Im Irish from both sides and so white in nearly translucent. That said understand and deeply emphasize with the plight of young black Americans. I’ve spent many hours reading Jefferson, Madison and Paine, the true Fathers of this Nation. I live in Virginia now and lived in Georgia and Florida as well. I have as many black friends as white. They know I’ve seen racism every where I’ve lived and still see it here. I no longer stay quite and all has been made worse from the architect of Trump U. Funny how screwing all those people as well as hundreds of contractors just neatly goes under the rug. This utterly idiotic move by Spikes was born in the same ignorance, Intolerance and irrational hatred. You either heep praise on him or you’re “Fake News”. It’s just more sickening and disconcerting by the day if not hour. I passionately love my country and its ideals since it opened the door for all to live free and pursue happiness. I’m for everyone’s equal rights and what we’re seeing at present. It’s a backlash from a mixed man who looked blacker than white. It’s the eb and flow that accompanies charge to lighter, better times. Even all this required a massive influx of misinformation and coordination, even from a despised rival power that cost America thousands of its bravest by arming our adversaries. And yet they’ll praise this fraud, the Constitution while ignoring the entire spirit of it simultaneously. Stay peaceful, keep the high road but never fail to call out injustice. It’s better than it was and it’s ever harder for them to spread idiotic hate in newer generations. It’ll get better if we survive this Putin praising sociopath.

        • john karros October 11, 2017, 11:33 am

          shut up you silly irish wanker. this is a gun review with a sense of humour. don’t need your psychotic white guilt ravings.
          you must be suffering from the irish curse: small dick, fetal alcohol syndrome & a potato for a brain. your political anger is a syndrome of something far worse, mental instability. calm down & go to the range.

        • Safe space destroyer January 12, 2018, 3:04 am

          Shut up and go back to your coloring books .

        • Drew Connors May 12, 2018, 3:52 pm

          Don’t bring your Irish blood into this like everyone who is Irish believes the same as you. As an Irish-American myself I say TRUMP 2020

      • Mark G Coffey September 29, 2017, 4:14 pm

        If that offended you, you were lost long before this encounter.

    • kk September 30, 2017, 12:47 am

      hahahah …that lower was made for you..im sure you have all the parts to finish it..

    • Patriot January 26, 2018, 9:05 am

      listen to this freakinn little anti-trump snowflake,poor poor little boy,,go back to your safe place now,we wouldn\’t want to scare you with some bad letter on a lower,that could hurt you after all..sorry your little feelings were hurt,go see mommie and she\’ll make it all better,

  • Mike Watkins September 29, 2017, 12:24 pm

    “And get a job, skinny-jeans!”
    I like that!
    Btw, can’t say “lib-tard” cause that is picking on mentally challenged persons. Lib-turd is more descriptive of what libs are anyway.

  • Russ H. September 29, 2017, 10:56 am

    I wouldnt buy one but I think Spikes should add some color to that unicorn and rainbow. I draw the line at a colored Punisher lower.

  • Daren E McBroome September 29, 2017, 10:52 am

    Love it, just another great way to express your 2nd Amendment right. Of course the libs will freak out, that is what they always do so who cares. I am in for two of them.

  • Kb31416 September 29, 2017, 10:06 am

    I think this is hilarious. I’m tempted to get one to go with my punisher lower and my home made ghost gun that has a ghost figure on the mag well with his own AR and flipping off the viewer.
    Let’s face it: guns are not PC, so let’s stop worrying about appeasing those who hate us, hate America, and hate our lifestyle and beliefs.

    • Vicki Koether September 29, 2017, 10:54 am

      AMEN, Preach on!

  • cawpin September 29, 2017, 9:50 am

    Has nobody else noticed it doesn’t say Libtard? It says Libturd, with a U. That may make it funnier.

  • Guido September 29, 2017, 9:13 am

    I want one. Hell, I want multitudes of them to replace nearly all of my lowers.
    \”You can laugh at \’em or shoot at \’em\”, I reckon. They don\’t incarcerate you for laughing\’ at \’em. Yet.

  • David September 29, 2017, 9:04 am

    Never did understand the whole libtard thing. But white people are so racist they came up with racist words for other white people. Sad that spikes tactical got into the political war. But they do make great lowers and it is kind of funny. As long as its a white on white war, who cares?

    • Guido September 29, 2017, 9:16 am

      Hello, David
      Hell, if you\’re racist to everybody (even your own) doesn\’t that just make you a grumpy bastard rather than a racist?

    • Daren E McBroome September 29, 2017, 10:45 am

      David, your an ass that just can not handle the truth. Take your racist comments some place else. You have no right or facts to label all whites as racist. Get over your poor me attitude and stop being a racist. Don’t go away mad, just go away.

    • Russ H. September 29, 2017, 10:46 am

      White people are racist? Black and brown people are not? You do know the term libtard (or libturd) crosses all color barriers – any race can be a libtard. The term libtard is an equal opportunity term.

      • Daren E McBroome September 29, 2017, 10:55 am

        Perfectly said…

    • Dave parsons September 29, 2017, 11:01 am

      You must be a Californian libtard. Libtard > ( A liberal that acts retarded as most do) . Example : They are famous for taking a non racial issue and calling it racist. They lack common sense and believe what the media feeds them.

    • retrocon September 29, 2017, 3:31 pm

      First, go back to school. Being insensitive to either liberals, or the mentally challenged (often one in the same, BTW), is not “racist.”

      Like so many others afflicted with the mental disorder called liberalism, you equate many things that are not “racist” with the word.

      For example, if you believe that muslims are the cause of most terrorist attacks, you are called “racist.” Guess what, muslims can be any race, it is a religion.

      If you believe that a wall should be built, and people should only enter legally, you are called a “racist,” even though we believe nationality or race is not important, just the method of entry. Being against illegal entry is not racist.

      Go find another board to troll.

  • Dutch Workman September 29, 2017, 7:57 am

    the reason we are losing our 2nd Amendment rights and are constantly under attack is because of run and hide people that write comments about stand up outfits like Spike… start leaning forward in the Foxhole

    • Paul September 29, 2017, 10:41 am

      Stop calling it a foxhole, it’s a fighting hole. Foxes use holes to hide.

      • Russ H. September 29, 2017, 10:51 am

        Actually, it\’s called a fighting position. In WWII, they were called foxholes though.

  • Mike V September 29, 2017, 7:25 am

    Guys are seriously over reacting.
    This will only bother those it’s making fun of, and even those might love the unicorn on the magwell.

  • Jay September 29, 2017, 7:21 am

    Do we really need to poke fun at the liberals and snowflakes? I mean after all, they do that enough on their own especially with the medias help!

  • Sean Carberry September 29, 2017, 7:18 am

    It’s a joke. I think? I think another person said it on here that it is making gun owners look bad. I can see how he comes to that conclusion. I also find it a little funny. But the nra and pro gun “nuts”(there are some nuts) make the lot of us look bad on occasion. I don’t need any help with that. All because the oversensitive hypocritical whiney snowflakes shed a tear. But they make the world a more difficult place when they hear a bad joke.

  • David Smith September 29, 2017, 6:32 am

    The promotion of this product by this online source is precisely what is wrong with the pro-gun establishment. As a responsible gun owner, I find this commentary to be counter productive and actually very harmful to the future of the gun loving public. I will never buy the trash that Spikes Tactical offers.

    • Russ H. September 29, 2017, 10:53 am

      I see no promotion of this product – they are clearly asking for opinions. BTW, Spike\’s makes some really great stuff – uppers and lowers, I own several. You sound like a Noveske or DD snob.

    • Daren E McBroome September 29, 2017, 11:02 am

      Conter productive to What! Dont bow down to the gun haters and takers in any way, that is what they want and they will take your gun that says”I Love Hilary” on it just as fast as this one from spikes and that is a Fact.

    • ILL WILL September 29, 2017, 11:17 am

      You sound like the responsible gun owner of 2 guns…your lady Smith and your dad’s inherited bolt action. You won’t be buying any guns which makes you the same as the idiots that hate them and that have a problem with this product.

    • Mark G Coffey September 29, 2017, 3:44 pm

      Thank you! I’m a gunsmith and love firearms. I can’t ever recall a manufacturer doing anything so appalling in my life and beyond. I have a machine shop after injury ended my career as a Machinist. Political discourse and forward thinking is what made this Nation what it is. Now we’re at war with the free press and the entire scientific community.
      This is incredibly counter productive and imagine the optics when some half wit shoots up a classroom or a nightclub. I have one of their older lowers I think. Nothing of theirs will come in or go out of my shop.
      I called them and vented my outrage. I shouldn’t be surprised with all that’s happened in mind.
      I await the funny arrival of the kids fire control setting. The Sandy Hook Receiver, it would deserve precisely the same reaction as this Idiocy.

  • Clarke September 29, 2017, 3:13 am

    This is just hokey as all hell, but I’m not surprised since that’s what Spike’s specializes in.

  • BUURGA September 29, 2017, 3:07 am

    We pro 2A folks have enough trouble keeping our rights intact without this nonsense. A firearm is not a damn comedy prop.

    • Mark G Coffey September 29, 2017, 3:48 pm

      My point exactly. Thus my mention of a kid setting on a Sandy Hook Receiver. Not too funny and appalling isn’t it? The same way some innocent college kid will be when they’re shot dead over their political opinion. And people on here citing the Constitution. Equally appalling and imbecilic.

  • SuperG September 26, 2017, 10:48 am

    I’m sure the LibTards will complain that there is no butterfly or rainbow option available for it too.
