Talk about a statement. NEMO Arms has released a titanium AR chambered in .308.
The new rifle is more than just a spectacle though, it’s quite the feat of engineering. Titanium is one of the most difficult metals to work with and as such creates an expensive manufacturing process. Retailing at $95,904 it’s safe to say the [TI]ONE is not for your average gun owners.
That doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t gawk.
The build features a matched titanium receiver set, titanium customizable tube handguard, titanium picatinny rails, titanium low-pro gas block, titanium charging handle, titanium DRK compensator, titanium buffer tube, titanium bolt carrier. That’s a lot of titanium.
On top of all this titanium the build features some products that are highly desired in the AR community, such as a 4 lb. Timney trigger and a 6×48 Trijicon ACOG.
The final thing the [TI]ONE really has going for it are its striking aesthetics. It turns out that titanium is shiny and that makes for a pretty unique looking rifle. The 1/10 Twist 416 Stainless Barrel is a black nitride finish and even the bolt is nickel boron coated.
Most of us aren’t ready to fork over 95,000 for a rifle, but it doesn’t mean we can’t stop to appreciate an engineering marvel.
