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 Corps to develop a long-range rifle for sniper applications. RAI was a relatively small company, owned by the late Jerry Haskins, 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.
The cap for this exciting new Space Pen model is an actual .338 H Mag Shell. What a special gift for the hunter or outdoors enthusiast.
Inside is a Raw Brass Cartridge Space Pen.
Please note! This pen cap is RAW Brass, just as bullets are. That means there is no finish on the brass. Each one will have its own unique look. Over time, a nice patina will develop. We recommend you never fly with your .338 Cartridge Space Pen. TSA sometimes won't believe it's a writing instrument! We want you to enjoy your Space Pen for a long long time.
When closed, Cartridge Space Pens are the perfect size to carry in your wallet, pocket, purse, car glove box, organizer, or toolbox. When open, it's a full sized, evenly balanced writing instrument.
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became our first Fisher ball point pen, the 400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a raw brass finish.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has been exhibited for years in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet continues to be our most popular pen.
