Spike’s Tactical Crusader Yet To Slow Down

The Spike's Tactical Crusader Rifle, released over six months ago, remains of their best selling weapon models and is the rifle most often brought in for customization in their shop. That's saying something, considering Spike's builds up to 15,000 guns a month. This popularity might be due to the solid reputation Spike's has in the rifle world, or maybe it's because of how the rifle is described — you see, they deliberately chose to ignore all sensitivity training and politically correct societal guidelines to tell it like it is: the Spike's Tactical Crusader is a rifle built for the express purpose of defending America from Muslim terrorists.

Hell, I'd buy one just to hear the social justice warriors wail and see the apologists gnash their teeth.

Featured image of white rifle above is a custom painted Spike's Tactical Crusader painted by @montactical, with a @dr_tiquestar Spike's Tactical Crusader patch. We're pretty sure that rifle belongs to The Hoss USMC  (@thehossusmc), q.v. – he's probably got more pictures on his social media if you want to check it out.

As you can see, each weapon comes with the Crusader Cross Shield and the complete rifle comes engraved with Psalm 144:1 engraved on the lower receiver. The trigger settings are peace (safe), war (fire) and God wills it (full auto if you have a select fire version).Spikes Tactical Crusader Rifle 1

It's a 14.5 in. chrome lined barrel with a mid-length gas system, pinned and welded with a Dynacomp Two for a muzzle device, making it 16 in. overall. The rails are Spike's M-LOK rail with a QD socket and Magpul MBUS sights up top and the BCG (Bolt Carrier Group) is a lightweight nickel-boron number. The pistol grip is Spike's proprietary grip (it's ribbed, but we'll forego the obvious crude remark).

“Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

This is the description from the Crusader page on the Spike's website. Note; be forewarned there's something wonky going on with their home page and the direct link to the rifle from their home page isn't working. You'll need to use the search feature.

Here's a look at how one part of how a Crusader is created, posted a few days back on the Spike's Tactical Facebook page.
