When Jack Burton went gunning for Lo Pan, he was carrying an Intratec TEC-9 (or he was after he took it from the corpse of a Wing Kong gunman). It hardly seems appropriate that a heroic long-haul truck driver of Jack Burton’s mettle should be carrying a TEC-9, and that’s hardly a weapon worthy of the Porkchop Express.
So we’re upgunning him. This is a piston driven AR pistol from Brownells. We’ll list out the parts, though some of them we’ll need to update because the catalog has evolved.
Here’s the rundown.
1# Phase 5 Tactical AR15/M16 Pistol Buffer Tube Assembly
2# BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle
3# Yankee Hill Machine AR15 QDS Sights
#4 Aimpoint Micro
5# Aimpoint Micro Mount (several options)
6# Adams Arms Piston Pistol Upper (we’re replacing with their P2 Series Free Float Upper)
7# Troy Industries Claymore Muzzle Brake
8# Tactical Supply Depot Extended Pivot/Takedown Pins
9# Wilson Combat Tactical Trigger Unit
10# Hogue Pistol Grip
He needed to replace that thing anyway.
11# Phase 5 Tactical Winter Triggerguard
12#MAGPUL B.A.D. Lever
Note: we think the lower should be swapped out for a Sharps Bros. “Warthog.” That would match the theme of Lo Pan’s dungeons.
#13 Sharps Brothers “Warthog” Lower Receiver
What would you add? Are we missing anything?
How about a modular VFG with a laser, and a look that suits the movie?
