What happens when some old army buddies decide to create a mug? Well, in the case of the Battle Mug, they machine the sucker out of a solid block of 6061 T6 billet aluminum, add three military-spec 1913 scope rails on its sides, and stick a carry handle from an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle on one of those rails - they leave the other two open, so users can add their own night-vision scopes, laser sights, or other gear needed for really heavy-duty drinking. Finally, they slap on a US$189 price tag - that's without the handle, which costs an additional $33.95.

The Battle Mug has a 24-ounce (0.7-liter) beverage capacity, and its handle can be removed when it has to submit to the indignity of being washed. It also has a military-spec Type III anodized finish, a crenelated base, and each one comes with its own serial number.

Tough drinkers of the world can order the mug from the company website.

Proving that some people are just that stupid.

Chindogu at its best.

Way too pricey but looks like a hoot! I think a clever person could make and sell it a lot cheaper? :-)

I would be all over that for $34. But then again, I think it takes more than a handle to make a mug.

For the price of two of those "tactical drinking systems" you can buy an actual low end AR-15 from Mark's Outdoor in Birmingham,AL. Nice idea,but unfortunately too pricey for most people. Maybe in Germany- put the family crest on it. They still pass mugs&pegs at the local pub down through the generations over there...

Interesting, but I'll stay with Longnecks. Suds on the milspec finish just doesn't seem right.

How long before a cheap Chinese plastic copy is available?

Yeeesh. Are military types really this far out of touch with the realities of the marketplace?

What about a lid too? another 40 dollars.

It's unique, but from a chronic alcoholics perspective, you could take up glass cutting and make a beer stein from a whole bottle and just glue some handles onto it.... Or use a anything that holds alcohol actually........... like a plastic disposable cup, coffee mug, dog bowl, or even from the bottle..... "Hell that's what it's got a hole in the end for!" And have the other $250 odd, "Fer DRINKIN' Money." Personally I think it's just a waste of a GOOD piece of extruded aluminium bar.
