Got the AR one from a member of another blog I'm on.

     Some interesting trivia about the gesture:

    

What does a backwards middle finger mean?
 
Along the same lines as the Middle Eastern thumbs-up is the English backwards peace sign (your index and middle finger held up with your palm facing toward you). It means the same thing as giving the middle finger in America, and will get you in trouble with the bartender faster than you can say “Cheerio!”;
 
    
Where did giving the middle finger originate?
 
The middle finger, which Dr Morris says probably arrived in the US with Italian immigrants, is documented in the US as early as 1886, when a pitcher for the Boston Beaneaters gave it in a joint team photograph with the rival New York Giants.
 
     The middle finger gesture was used in ancient times as a symbol of sexual intercourse, in a manner meant to degrade, intimidate and threaten the individual receiving the gesture.
 
    One account contends that English longbowmen invented it in 1415 at the battle of Agincourt. "The French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers.
 
    False. The “middle finger” gesture does not derive from the mutilation of English archers at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. Some historians trace its origins to ancient Rome.
 
     Slang. an obscene gesture of contempt made by pointing this finger upward while folding the other fingers against the palm; the finger: The driver honked his horn and got the middle finger from the biker.See also finger (def. 18).
     'Better than saying nice words which are not meant'.

Saw them on eBay but wouldn't ghetto up my AR with those. Maybe if you had the graffiti art paint scheme on the AR it would look ok.  Duracoat has a paint scheme with stencils to create a graffiti art AR.

That'd be wild. Kinda vulgar, the hands, but I couldn't resist. To the Left and most of the Right (RINOs) in our government, that is, the anti-Constitutionalists, I say show 'em the "bird" or the cross; it's received the same way by the evil. "Cast not your pearls before swine".

I wonder if they make them out of metal for use on sten guns and other emergency firearms?  Because not being able to adjust them wouldn't be an issue then.
