The birth of the .338 Lapua Magnum dates back to 1982, when an American company Research Armament Industries, RAI, in Rogers Arkansas, was asked by the United States Marine forces to develop a long-range rifle for sniper applications. RAI was a relatively small company, operating mainly in the field of defense technology projects. Officially the project was to develop a target rifle for 1000 yards, but in reality the purpose was more likely to develop a 1500m sniper rifle.When the .338 round was shot through the Remington 700 Long Action Rifle, it quickly became the military sharp-shooters “Snipers Rifle” capable of penetrating a piece of 3/8 inch steel at 1000 yards.
Fisher has used the shell of the spent cartridges of the .338 to create a pen. The cap is from a real cartridge! The .338 Space Pen won’t penetrate steel and cannot be shot out of a rifle, yet it can handle your most demanding writing needs. The Nitrogen powered space pen refill inside makes it possible to write at any angle, through water, dirt, oil and in extreme cold and heat without any problems.
You might not achieve the .338’s ground speed of 2800ft /sec but you will accomplish a ton of writing!
Please note! This pen is made of RAW Brass, just as bullets are. That means there is no finish on the brass. Each one will have it's own unique look. Over time a nice patina ( discolouration) will develop. It is a natural property and should not be considered a defect. Also we recommend you never fly with your .338 Cartridge Space Pen. Airport security won't believe it's a writing instrument!
