This company produces hand-crafted bottle openers made out of dummy 50 caliber ammunition. The military veterans who produce these items defended our country with this ammunition and now use them to provide gifts and promotional products.

The dummy ammunition that is used is completely safe. They are professionally powder coated instead of spray painted which will ensure the finish lasts for years. The brass is professionally polished and a laser engraver is used to create a unique appearance.
