A laser is used to cut several wood species into the different rifle pieces. I then hand inlay them into the pen barrel to form the AR 15 rifle inlay pen. The pen is turned on a lathe, sanded and completed with a superhard superglue CA finish to last. The metal components are gun metal and chrome. This pen uses a twist action to expose the Parker compatible refill. Refills are available at most larger office supply stores or through my REFILLS tab. Try the new capless rollerball refill for a superior smooth writing style. Check out my Bullet Cartridge pens where you will find a real bullet and bullet cartridge from an AR 15 .223 that I have made into a working pen!
