Custom bike and reality celebrity of West Coast Chopper fame, Jesse James, is marking his entrance in the firearms industry with the same bombastic attitude towards customization that made his motorcycles famous. The Sandman Nomad, the newest rifle from Jesse’s Austin-based Jesse James Firearms Unlimited (JJFU), is as unique as the man himself.
With features like the Magpul ACS stock,Fortis Hammer charging handle, a custom 2-stage trigger, and a Nickel Boron-coated bolt and carrier, the Nomad reads like a checklist for the AR aficionado. Where it separates itself from the pack is with Jesse’s racecar approach to weight reduction, milling the majority of not just the railed forearm and trigger guard, but also the fore and pistol grips. The Nomad looks like the fossilized bones of an AR dinosaur, which is fitting since the rifle ships with, “Authentically weathered…Battle Scarred finish.”
Prospective buyers will have to visit Jesse’s website and fork over $3,949 to add one to their collection.
