    Meet the ultimate first responder AR-15


    This Firearm-Mounted Rescue Tool could be appearing on the market very soon. (Photo: USPTO)



    The U.S. Patent Office just released a patent for what has to be the most righteous AR-15 aftermarket accessory ever imagined.

    Tracey Copeland of Garland, Texas and Andrew BeGole of Pleasant Ridge, Michigan filed their joint application for a “Firearm-Mounted Rescue Tool” in Dec. 2014 and the USPTO issued the intrepid do-gooders Patent# US20160153742 earlier this month.

    And while the most striking image is “America’s Rifle” with a stock that ends in a fireman’s axe, that’s just the eye-catcher to the whole concept of attaching a tool to the rifle.

    Almost any tool.

    “The insertion body is ideally formed in a shape that will aid emergency first-responders, law enforcement personnel and/or military personnel in entering buildings through entryways such as, for example, secured doors and windows,” reads the abstract in full-on understatement.

    And it doesn’t just exist on paper. There are some prototypes floating around in the inventors’ hands.

    The insert takes the place of a standard AR-style buttstock and can be fitted with all sorts of goodies from wrenches to a halligan-type entry pry, rescue axes and more.



    For more information, Guns.com tracked down Copeland and spoke to him about the design, which sprang in concept from the mind of his business partner, BeGole, and was fleshed out by the Texas CAD/3-D printing expert.

    “We both had friends that are special forces, friends that are SWAT, friends that are firefighters, and we were just thinking: What if we could put some kind of breaching tool, some sort of halligan tool, on the back of an AR,” Copeland said. “That’s just kind of the idea behind it was to see if that’s even feasible.”

    Then came a nearly two-year long process of design and prototyping, trial and error, then filing the patent after researching to verify that the concept wasn’t already out there.

    While both Copeland and BeGole have FFLs, the two aren’t marketing the invention just yet and have other even more interesting ideas in the works.

    All we have to say is, give us an MSRP and a link and we are there.

        So some dumbulb saw the pic of the AK47 with a shovel handle.... And decided to patent the idea?... Not smart - some habib will sue for infringement and win...


        On top of the idea of turning the muzzle towards yourself to hammer and pry being just beyond stupid.

          You can apply for a patent on almost anything. Doesn't mean you'll get it. I don't think using an axe or any other tool for a rifle stock is a patentable idea.

          It's an elaborate hoax. But well done. Somebody just went a little nuts with their CAD program.

            I can not think of one time that I have said to myself while shooting, "Geez, I wish I had a pike headed axe right now".

              well at least you can shave your arm pits as you shoot, so it might be a favorite with the ladies.

            Better acquire that cheek weld right, or it may smart a bit. As much as I like AR's, I really don't think the buffer lug can take all that much abuse without snapping off.

              That's the kind of out of the box thinking that the modern firearms industry needs.

                The figure #5 depiction looks like it could injure the shooter more than the shootee.

                  If anyone is stupid enough to buy that they should suffer.

                A poorly done example of a concept that has been around for some time. I have been working on replacing the deck gun (found on top of of most fire engines) with a 50 cal. Every fireman I've spoken with has agreed, we rarely use the deck gun, but if it was a 50 cal we would use it all them time.

                While the militarization of the police is constantly in the news, ive been militarizating firehouses for some time now.

                  Are you really a fireman? If so if someone parks their car at a hydrant do you bust out the windows are run the hose through the car?

                        Yup, really a fireman. If there is a structural fire and the car is impeding access to the hydrant, I will absolutely take out the windows to hook up. Best part is, after all is said and done, I will write the car a ticket, so on top of having to pay to repair the windows the owner also gets to pay a huge fine! While this might seem like an asshole move, the majority of fires that result in a fatality or serious injury to a fireman have water issues. The biggest water problem is not having a positive water source, ie, hydrant. So besides doing whatever it takes to get a hydrant, taking out someones windows and causing them to pay a fine is the most effective way to get that person to never park on a hydrant again.
