    That trigger guard though, why so huge? Seems twice the size as the previous gen or almost any thing else on the market. I think many are going to ponder this one… Its not very aesthetically pleasing I guess one could say.

    • Adun says:

      I would assume that it is for use with gloves and I don’t really see how it is too large, function has a form all of its own and all that.

    • Glenn Cheney says:

      WHY said it all for you. Smh. Hope you don’t own any of these tools. BTW, The name is very functional.

  2. Odie says:

    Why do people keep making keymod handguards after their inferior performance has been well established?

  3. Gabe says:

    Haha, they make great videos!

  4. Rody says:

    “Ghetto Blaster Rifle”..A little bit ridiculous I think. With silly names names like that no wonder people are are fighting to take these weapons off of the market.

  5. Stephen says:

    I like Noveske products. I really do, but this is the worst product name I could possibly think of for a firearm…

  6. Why says:

    Great choice of name, AR bros. High-five each other, wrap it up in a big ribbon for the anti-gun people, and go off and get yourself another tattoo.

  7. James says:

    9×25 Dillon please! Please! PLEASE!!!!

    • Jarrad truog says:

      all that takes is a barrel. I imagine someone could make one

      • James says:

        Yep, never actually seen one built, but that round would scream from a 6-8″ bbl. carbine/subgun. So few 10mm carbines out there to base one on….

  8. Chris says:

    Lol awesome video.

  9. Rich says:

    I am concerned that white supremists will view the name “ghetto blaster” as code for shooting people in ghettos — many of whom are people of color. And I have to wonder how a corporation could pick such a name and not realize that.

    • Joey Johnson says:

      I know lots of people whom are of all different colors in ghettoes! The term was unfortunately used big by the nazi’s to “hold” the Jewish commintity. I like the term serenata. By the nazis used “hold”

    • Vic Toree says:

      Ghetto Blaster, back in the day, referred to loud boomboxes (portable music listening devices with speakers rather than headphones). Perhaps this is just a play on words because short barrels are loud and this is very portable?

      Dumb name, sure, but jumping to anything race related is a hell of a stretch.

  10. Rob says:

    RIP John Noveske. We miss the hipster-free Noveske Rifleworks…

  11. Rody says:

    I think the name is absolutely absurd. With such a big name company you think a little more effort would be put into the name considering the ongoing battle with people fighting to take our firearms and ban such weapons. On that note should come out with a 4th configuration with a 100rd drum and bumpfire stock..maybe call it the “Mandalay special edition”.

    • SVGC says:

      Nobodies trying to Molon your Labe dude. The whole “give the antigunners a reason” spiel is tired and played out. Frankly, ain’t shit happening because Noveske named a rifle the Ghetto Blaster. I don’t think a goofy name is gonna be the lynchpin that the anti 2A needs, they’ll prolly just keep on focusing on murder. But hey dude, you get to save yourself that 2k you were certainly gonna spend if they named it the “Grey Man” or some shit.

      • Rody says:

        Lol…absolutely the “spiel” is played out, non the less still a very active concern for many. I just feel it’s an awful name for a weapon that serves no logical point beyond a very cool toy. But Springfield has an ar that is called the saint compared to a weapon with a menacing name like “ghetto blaster”. It just seems counterproductive to make such an awesome toy then take away from that by naming it some stupid shit like the ghetto blaster. But hey its just one mans opinion.

  12. LCSO264 says:

    First, I like the video, particularly the first song…

    second, I am curious about their Gen 4 lower…

    And yes, “KeyMod,” why?

  13. Stefan S. says:

    This ain’t John’s…….”Noveske” anymore. Stupid name.

  14. John says:

    Really dumb name. I was interested until that. Fix that before it’s too late. Fire whomever thought it was a good idea.

  15. Agent_Orange says:

    It’s a nice looking firearm, but I’m in agreement on the name – it just seems to be in really poor taste. Noveske has really started to lose a lot of it’s class after the passing of John. Now it’s become a weird parody of hipster culture doing lifestyle branding in order to stay relevant.

  16. HOC says:

    I was a big fan of Noveske, RIP John. I have been debating on buying one for the past 1yr. Im gonna go with DD. Cant see my self spending money on a brand that makes poor decisions on something thats as simple as a name. Now im woundering how much effort went into the build design. “Just slap a short barrel and a pdw stock on it. Call it the Ghetto Blaster…… Yea!” Then sips on hot green tea with mint leaves…….

  17. mcs says:

    So… “Ghetto Blaster”??

    • SSD says:

      Do you know what a ghetto blaster is?

      • mcs says:

        Yep, both definitions.
        One definition, the one that’s being trotted out to defend the name choice as supposedly innocuous, is that it’s referring to a large, loud boombox. For a small, suppressed firearm, this definition makes little sense to begin with.

        The other definition is that of a firearm, apparently to be used in the “ghetto”. This has the strongest cultural connotations here to civilians in the US with gang culture and violence using compact, high-capacity firearms from confined spaces such as motor vehicles. Seeing as the rollout video has blasting hip-hop, shooting from the back seat of a car, and features a firearm that is both compact and higher round capacity than most pistols, I think this definition fits the bill much more accurately, with a bit of a knowing wink and nudge to the audience.

        Now, for the rationale, one could see how this is a win-win situation for Noveske. The people who wouldn’t buy it because of the violence and disparagement associated with the name probably wouldn’t buy it to begin with, and the people who are going to buy it either are unphased or enticed by the connotations. At $2k a pop it’s obvious that they’re not marketing to people from any actual ghetto.
        Someone earlier called it a “dog whistle”, and I’d argue it’s either just idiotic marketing rushed to print at best or actually is maliciously coded at worst. Either way, the name gets press, the articles get hits, and the cycle continues. Really works out for them.

        • SSD says:

          Amazingly, Bond didn’t get in trouble for it.

          But seriously, the only place a ghetto blaster is considered a firearm is in the minds of the Hyper PC members of the firearms community.

          • mcs says:

            Arguably the cultural connotations are different for someone who lives in Europe or Australia vs NY or LA. Hence Q’s blank enthusiasm for this odd gadget “for the Americans”. The term can stand alone divorced of any race or class insinuations in other countries.

            But really you are right. Discounting the internet comments on this or that website, there doesn’t seem to be any blowback on Noveske besides a couple of disgruntled internet disgrunters. And if there’s anything about internet comments, it’s that they’re worth just about as much as they weigh. XD
