In its heyday, this puppy could pierce armor at a rate of more than 4,200 rounds per minute. Now it’s ready to retire and now can be used to crack open your ice-cold beverage of choice. Our 30MM GAU-8 Shell Casing Bottle Openers are handmade from aluminum casings procured directly from the Department of Defense.

Each bottle opener is made from a genuine military-fired 30MM casing that has been expertly coated with a matte black military-grade powder coating. Each shell casing stands 11.25” tall.

All 30MM items come with a Certificate of Authenticity.  

  • Dimensions: stands 11.25" tall
  • Made from a genuine once-fired by 30MM A-10 Warthog Shell Casing and procured from the US Military 
  • The projectile is anodized aluminum and made to original projectile specifications (projectile may be imported or made in the USA). 
  • The 30MM rounds are collected from training facilities located in the United States and do not contain depleted uranium.

PERSONALIZE THIS ITEM FOR THAT PERSONAL TOUCH: Engraving can be added for an additional $7.00 per item. We can engrave bottle openers with 1 line of text, up to 25 characters including spaces. The text will be engraved on the back of the bottle opener (opposite of the logo). Please note that we cannot engrave special symbols such as hearts, stars, or accent marks. 

Our items are made from genuine once fired shell casings and may contain minor blemishes or scratches consistent with their history. Because our products resemble live ammunition, we do not recommend bringing them to airports or other places where live ammunition is not permitted.

Missing or invalid information, e.g., text, font, an invalid quantity, or requesting special characters, may cause your order to become delayed and/or canceled with or without notice. Bottle Openers will be engraved exactly as requested. Engraved items are non-refundable. Engraving may add an additional 1-2 days to the standard processing time.

Cool authentic product

I worked A-10's in the late 1980's and always wanted to get my hands on a GAU-8 shell with the bullet attached. I had forgotten just how large this round is until I received this item. I will likely never use it as a bottle opener as I do not want to damage the powder coat finish. Display only for me. Very cool. Makes for a great conversation piece.


Great bottle opener! Very well made, feels great in your hand and opens bottles effortlessly. Great buy!

Home Run

Purchased for a comrades Birthday. Hit a home run. Loved it and great conversation piece at friends bar.

Perfect Gift

This was bought as a gift and was well received. Everything from online ordering to delivery was simple. A very unique bottle opener to say the least.

Good feedback

I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my brother. It was shipped to him so I actually haven't had the opportunity to see it or hold it but he loved it. He said he is going to display it beside his bar. So, I can't personally attest to anything about it other than he liked it.

Christmas Gift

The perfect gift, my dad only drinks pry off bottles, he loves it!

Jazzes up the beer cooler at oarties

Just place on of these next to the beer cooler at a party and watch the buzz it generates. An eye-opener as well as a bottle opener. Cool.

Talk worthy gift

This opener is awesome... it was way cooler than I even expected it to be. It was actually hard to give away...for the person who has everything, this is it!


Gave it as a gift and they loved it. Exactly as pictured and it's pretty big. Got it engrave and still look nice. Made well.

great product

It was a gift, the recipient knows about ammo (HE IS A VETERAN), he was very pleased with it, hope to get one for me.

If I could improve something is the shipping methods and cost, way too high and takes too long, I was beginning to wonder if it would get there.

Plus if you offer to engrave got to open up more options and maybe colors or textures.
