Pictured are two .30-06 rifle cartridge pens. Top in picture 1 and left in picture 2 is a nickle plated .30-06 rifle cartridge pen with US Navy submarine dolphins as the pocket clip, the wood is Teak. Bottom pen, and right in picture #2 is also a .30-06 but in Brass with the US Navy Chief Petty Officer collar insignia, and the wood is brazillian cherry. These are hot items in this Navy community.

Very cool! Are you selling these by any chance? If you made an army version these would make great gifts for a few of my army buddies.

If you aren’t selling these, you really should because I have a feeling they would be very popular with the Services.

Cool!

Nice job Frank, If you are selling them you should get a good buck for them. Very, very nice.

Great job Frank, from what I hear you better hang on to your brass, I guess the price has gone outta site since we started selling it to the Chinese cheaper than we sold it to our own arms manufacturers.

Nice job. I had a retired Navy chief request one. He loved it. Wondering if you got your supplies the same place as me.

Jack1, If the bullet can be moved they can be made into pens also. They are more for desk top use. Kinda hard to put in a shirt pocket.
