Products catch our attention for a variety of reasons. Something new that hasn't been done before, something refined to account for user input or simply something that hasn't been done before comes to our attention here at the 'Desk. Sometimes, though, we just get a chuckle out of something.

This Dreadnaught Industries stripped lower receiver falls squarely into the latter group. At first glance, it appears to be a pretty straightforward stripped lower receiver. The lowers are machined from 7075 aluminum forgings to mil-spec, then hard anodized for durability. But that's not what caught our attention.

The safety selector switch, however, did.

Dreadnaught offers limited runs with some custom touches like safety designations, and offers a lifetime warranty against defects. The company does caution, however, against buyer's remorse.

While the safety selector is marked for all three positions, the rifle that will eventually be built out of this lower receiver, sadly, will not have the "giggle switch" installed. It will be limited to "No Pew" and "Pew" only. Pepe LePew could not be reached for comment.

MSRP: $139.
