Just a few weeks after we recognized the 9 year anniversary of Operation Red Wings, the eleven Navy SEALs and eight Army Night Stalkers who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country, the family of SEAL Matthew Axelson, have released the much anticipated Axe Tribute Rifle. The Axe Tribute Rifle was built to honor Matt Axelson and all who lost their lives during Operation Red Wings on June 28, 2005. There will only be less than 100 of these rifles sold and a portion of the profits will go towards funding different charities that the Axelson family and Axelson Tactical work with.
The rifle itself is an absolutely beautiful SPR featuring an 18″ SIONICS Weapon Systems SPR barrel, Geissele Automatics SMR MKII rail and SSA-E trigger, Battle Arms Development ambi selector and EPS pins, Battle Comp, Magpul MBUS Pro sights, B5 Systems Enhanced SOPMOD stock and the list goes on.
The Upper and Lower receivers have special engravings on them and will be numbered from AXE01 to AXE99. Each rifle is hand assembled by SIONICS Weapon Systems and will feature a 3 color Cerakote camo that is done by hand to give each rifle a unique pattern.
All Axe Tribute Rifles will come in a Pelican hard case with an engraved wood box which will contain a set of special challenge coins that tell the story of Operation Red Wings. Matt’s personal Challenge Coin will have a serial number that matches the rifle it is paired with. There will be two Spartan 01 missing man patches with it as well.
The Axe Tribute Rifle should appeal to all ranges of users. Whether a casual collector, backyard plinker or hard core shooter, this rifle will get the job done and you can know your purchase is going to help support some great charities.
