Grants Pass, Oregon’s Noveske Rifleworks shrugged off being PC and debuted its line of Ghetto Blasters based on the Gen 4 series platform this week.
Teaming up with Kevin Brittingham and his team at Q to incorporate that company’s collapsible stock and bolt carrier group, Noveske’s Ghetto Blaster name is a homage to the old school boom boxes of the 1980s and 90s, which the very Honey Badger-esque series approximates in size.
Available in three configurations — a 16-inch barreled 5.56mm and two 7.94-inch .300 BLK and 5.56mm offerings– each come standard with an adjustable gas block, Geissele SD-E trigger, and Magpul grip. It’s up to the buyer to select either the Keymod or M-LOK free floating handguard.
MSRP is $2,000-ish with an availability for 1Q 2018. No word on if it comes with Noveske flannel or beard oil, but good deal on the Waylon Jennings/jj fad mashup in the video.
