A Trump-Branded AR? Unique ARs at SHOT Show 2017

For more information, visit https://unique-ars.com/.

We have seen a bunch of “new” for the AR rifles in our lives. Most of it, by this point, is hardly that. But the booth for Unique ARs grabbed my attention from across the room. It’s not tactical. It’s not coyote tan. It’s not endorsed by counter-terrorism experts from across the realm. But it is totally freaking cool. It is a Trump-marked AR handguard. Yes, you can Trump your AR with Unique ARs’ help. It has “TRUMP” and “Make America Great Again” emblazoned along its length.

The “Make America Great Again” Trump-branded handguard from Unique ARs really caught the author’s attention at the 2017 SHOT Show.

Unique AR’s primary business is custom handguards, and they do mean custom. They can cut almost any design you want, and the handguards are well made. No repurposed beer can thick, Chinese junk here. These handguards are well built enough to be useful, and sure to make you the talk of the range. The first real add on besides wood AR furniture I have ever seen to make yours truly a Texas BBQ gun. I know after the last 8 years, we all have a dozen AR’s gathering dust in the safe. Why not go ahead and make one pretty. Or make one great again?

    I want one, just to piss them off!

  • Trevor_Phillips March 31, 2017, 3:28 am

    I see that there are a few braindead libtard squawkers on here.

    While it isn’t exactly my cup of tea the craftsmanship is unmistakable. Sure it was done on a CNC machine, but the artistry it took to program is still something to be applauded. As soon as I’m done here I fully intend to visit their site to see what other designs they have available. I’m not one to go in for things that are marketing anyone else or anyone else’s ideology. I prefer to be my own man and express myself with those things which I find interesting or unique. The guys at Unique ARs definitely have some good work to offer and so long as their forearms aren’t overly heavy I would certainly consider purchasing one if they have a design that speaks to me. As for all the negative comments from folks who are obviously only here to irritate those of us who actually like firearms, well I’ll give them this much commentary, ____________. And now I’m done, off to see the site.

    I would absolutely buy that, especially if they left off the T. “RUMP” – making america great again. Yes its gaudy, over the top, and maybe a bit odd, but I’d put on my rifle for talking points. I like to meet people and have friends in all places and that would help me do that, but also keep the libtards away from me or at least make them reveal who they are.

    Unlike most of the negative commentators, I’m giving POTUS non judgement until I see what he does. Unless he goes full on commie/socialist he certainly can’t make this great country any worse than the previous POTUS.

  • Dave from Indy February 7, 2017, 8:44 am

    The guy loves his country and believes what #Trump ran on. To celebrate that, he did something pretty amazing. Why do you libs have to piss on everything good about this nation? You broke our education system, you broke the family unit, you broke human sexuality, you broke free speech, you broke life before birth, you broke the our national defense, you broke our sovereignty as a nation, you broke our economy, you broke Chicago, Detroit, New York, Denver, Seattle, San Fransisco and L.A., you broke our military, you broke the V.A., you broke our health care system, you broke the national debt, you broke our trust in the police, you broke journalism, and you broke human decency and respect in general. Now you want to break freedom of expression and the second amendment! Well, congratulations! We now present you with Donald J. Trump. The one human being you can’t seem to break! We stand behind him! He is our President! And you can put the last 8 years in your glass pipe and smoke it, cuz things are going to change.

      Spot On Dave !!!

    • George February 7, 2017, 10:45 am

      Give this man a cigar!! Dave wins the internet for the next decade never mind the day. Fantastic commentary.

    • Matt scott February 7, 2017, 12:01 pm

      Wow those are the best words I’ve heard in years. Thank you.

    • AWV February 7, 2017, 12:04 pm

      Make sure you have your tinfoil hat on, Dave. Your rockheaded sermon proves your simplemindedness.

      • Proghunter February 7, 2017, 4:42 pm

        No AWV, it is the progressive-fascist crowd (aka “liberal”) people like you who refuse to see the facts. Everything Dave listed was accurate. Make sure you have YOUR Kevlar helmet on as the day of reckoning for the America-hating left is near at hand. Fascists (what progressive usually means, although some are communists, the fraternal twin ideology) look down their statist noses at everyone who doesn’t live in the “right” city and believe the “right” viewpoint. All of us are uneducated rednecks by your worldview – your kind is a irreversibly brainwashed Marxist useful idiot with no useful education on politics, history, or real science. Your kind is getting so in-your-face and nasty that soon real Americans (those normal people with morals and principles whom you despise) will say FU and start shooting. Civil War -II. No prisoners.

        Shut up retard commie…. aren’t you late for your transition hormone treatment or circle jerk meeting…..leave OUR Republic if you don’t like it, the borders ARE open….for those who want to leave.

    • thomas glowniak February 9, 2017, 4:00 am

      I agree with you 100%…..you really hit it out of the park….liberals should be ashamed of what they have done to AMERICA…they can not accept the fact that Donald J.Trump was elected….People have spoken

    • tommy jones February 9, 2018, 6:01 pm

      Hahaha!!! Right on, bro. The communists who do not enjoy the liberty an armed citizenry protects, need to move to Canada or Mexico,

    • Vanns40 February 7, 2017, 9:32 am

      And your comment is exactly what makes this idea so great, it drives people like you nuts! 🙂

    • tommy jones February 9, 2018, 6:12 pm

      Haha…I hope you can’t sleep at night with all that nagging consternation knawing at you as you think about TRUMP Make America Great Again on my rifle….. LMFAO

  • Star Elton February 7, 2017, 8:40 am

    While a gun like that is not something I would buy, I bet it will become an expensive collectors item someday.

  • Ernie February 7, 2017, 6:51 am

    The most ridiculous idea ever. And what if he fails miserably as the POTUS? Looks like he’s on the fast track to getting himself impeached and his joke of an administration run straight out of Washington. Now you’re left with a gun you can’t sell and would be too damned embarrassed to pull out of the safe. “What? You actually paid money for that?!” Dumb.

    • robert brittner February 7, 2017, 8:04 am

      Ernie…Ernie…Ernie……What a pathetic attempt at pretending your a gun owning 2nd amendment supporter……If fact…Trump has been precisely and surgically repairing this Country day by day….Undoing all of the damage done by the marxist muslim that you and your fellow libtards allowed to infiltrate the White house! The only people he’s pissed off are those such people……So go cry in your safe space, pat your puppy, color in your coloring book, (dont break any crayons) and know we have a competent, moral, and patriotic team in the White House! As for the handguard…a little gosh for me but I might buy one if I had the extra money…. Get on da Trump Traon!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • robert brittner February 7, 2017, 8:06 am

        Sorry…… TRAIN!

        • AWV February 7, 2017, 12:06 pm

          That’s the only typo you correct? Trump’s team is completely incompetent. You may have great hope for his plans, but the simple truth is that very few of them will stand up to legal scrutiny. To call his team competent or moral is laughable.

          • Emily February 7, 2017, 2:29 pm

            We won, you lost. Get over it…..and yourself.

          • Trevor_Phillips March 31, 2017, 3:26 am

            To call you competent is laughable.

    • DoubleAce February 7, 2017, 2:48 pm

      Ernie, you are one of the very liberals Dave was talking about in his post. You fairies don’t seem to understand. It isn’t about Trump. If I’d about the people who elected him. Calm down Ernie your head is going to explode.

  • Lee February 7, 2017, 2:49 am

    The most ridiculous thing I’ve seen since Trump was elected president. How can somebody build a good weapon and righteously f*ck it up?

    • Larry February 7, 2017, 6:10 am

      By your comment im wondering why you are looking at a “scary full automatic assult rifle” ? Shouldnt you be looking at transgender men who identify as house cats in their safe spaces? I hope you choke on hillary you socialist moron!

      • AWV February 7, 2017, 12:07 pm

        Not scary. It just looks retarded.

        • matthew martinez February 7, 2017, 2:19 pm

          second. i repaired saws and other machineguns in iraq and i own about 50 guns so far. built and bought. no sitting president should have a branded weapon sends the wrong ideas to outsiders. the guys who love trump need a world view and stop worshipping this goober. hed love to have made a buck in office when his terms up.

          • tommy jones February 9, 2018, 6:22 pm

            Liar?!! Your dumb comment betrays your lie you never served. It’s not Donald Trump s rifle, like his hotels, it’s some OTHER manufacturer making them. Ura libtard.

    • Blasted Cap February 7, 2017, 6:44 am

      Because it’s theirs and they can do what they want.

    • tommy jones February 9, 2018, 6:16 pm

      It’s just the hand guard, an accessory, that can be taken off or on in a minute. It’s not the whole rifle…..man these educated types are SO dumb!!?
