These shot glasses are made from real genuine US military fired 30 X 173MM GAU 8 A-10 shell casings. The A-10 cycles spent shells back into the plane to avoid impact damage during flight.
These rounds have been demilitarized, cut down to equal a generous 2.25-ounce pour and anodized. These products do not contain any active gunpowder or primers, making them 100% safe for use.
Literally unbreakable, this is not your ordinary shot glass. These rounds are typically used to eliminate tanks and armored vehicles as well as fortified ground-based targets. The A-10 Thunderbolt II “Warthog” first took flight in 1972 and was designed around its primary armament of the GAU-8 Avenger rotary cannon. The GAU-8 Gatling gun fires 30mm x 173mm ammunition at a rate of 4,200 rounds per minute, which are available in armor-piercing (AP) and high explosive (HE) variations for use in accordance with a designated firing mission. This epic casing makes one badass shot glass!
**Each casing is thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and professionally anodized to preserve the vibrant colors. Paint colors may vary.**
