My recent post of a new nailgun, with only the information that I’d received in my e-mail, drew the attention of the DeWalt-16’s creator David Wiggins. Dave graciously provided us with more pictures and the story behind his cool tool-themed M-16.

It started when Dave saw the picture below, back in 2003, and thought, “I can do better than that.”

Dave says, “I’d just picked up a new (to me) M-16 and was in the process of fixing it up a little. It needed new furniture anyway, so I sourced the safety yellow stock, guard, and grip. Then, I went down to the DeWalt factory service place a few miles from the house to get a sticker. There, I saw they had brand new battery casings, so I picked up one of those too. I got home, found a short magazine , and got to work.

“I traced an approximation of the size hole I’d need in the top of the plastic casing, and slowly dremeled away the plastic I didn’t need. Once done, I epoxied the magazine body into the hole and quickly assembled everything so that I could make sure it all looked right before the epoxy set up. Once the epoxy cured, I took the mag back apart, cleaned up some of the bigger resin boogers, and then masked the top of the mag and hit it w/ some mil-spec glossy black coating (aka Krylon).”

Dave included these pictures for our viewing enjoyment: the Dewalt-16 on the cleanest workbench ever; details on the slingmount; details on the selector; and a great shot of the battery/magazine.



Three Toolmonger cheers for Dave — we always love a high-powered, fully automatic, cordless tool, and the DIY spirit just cranks it up a notch!

    That should be standard issue in the gun rack of every contractor’s truck. It would probably make those ‘punchlist’ meetings go alot faster.

    With all the crack head stealing stuff out of peoples vans it should be standard issue haha

    One of the gents at http://www.ar15.com is responsible for this, and many others…

    Google “barbie-15” sometime…

    Well if it’s like most dewalt cordless products, the battery will be dead after the first two rounds or the barrel will fall off!

  5. Dj says:

    Let it be said… I’ve had the privilege of firing Mr. Wiggins’ finely crafted DeWalt-16. It is short enough, light enough, and well balanced enough to spend the whole day with it in your hands, working in tight quarters, just as one would expect from a real DeWalt tool. Furthermore, when necessary, the “Rock-n-Roll” fire selection will help you rip right thru the job, meeting deadlines swiftly and effectively when necessary. 🙂

    Scienkoptic = dont jump to conclusions I use a ton of dewalt gear and have no problems … and I DO NOT baby my tools .

  9. Lysol says:

    Wow this guy played alot of quake

  10. Justin says:

    Man, I’d be worried about DeWalt asking you to take this post down for some from of trademark infringement, or otherwise brand confusion… Hopefully they have a sense of humor.

  11. David Wiggins says:

    There is video of the DeWalt-16 in action, but I’m not posting the link because I like my server to stay up and running 🙂

    You are a jerk Dave for making so much news about it that it is costing people allot of time just looking it up so they can buy one.

  21. Querida Hope Messer says:

    I’d like to know how to get one myself.

  22. Raymond Cochran says:

    the only improvement that i could see with this amazing variant it to incorporate a drum style(single twist) mag using the battery casing as the housing unit. i love the variant tho and as a member of the armed forces i would carry this into combat, talk about a fake out.

  23. Shawn Withaeger says:
