Why use a regular pen when you can use one of these? Made using two 7.62mm bullets, this beautifully handcrafted twist pen is definitely a showcase of true craftsmanship.


These pens have undergone a 9 step process, including being Professionally machined, and hand polished. The golden brass tint of the pen gives it a luxurious look worth flaunting every time you need to sign something in the office!


This twist pen was crafted using 2 bullets, recently fired from the iconic general-purpose machine gun (GPMG) by UK troops.
We also allow you to engrave it with a name, some initials or personalised message, along
with an optional personalised gift box.


Whether you are an avid gun-nut or know someone who is a hunter or serving/served in the armed forces, there wouldn’t be a better gift!

  1. Graeme

    Thank you so much for this awesome personalised bullet pen! My best man is a serving military man & loved it. I left it very last minute & was worried it wouldn’t arrive in time for the wedding but Custom Calibers came through & delivered a great item (communicating with me throughout!) thank you so much! Engraving was spot on as well.

  2. Gary

    This is the second pen I’ve bought. This one was for my Fiancé. She works in a hospital and people are constantly stealing her pen, so we got her name on it!

    The pens are very nicely built and have a nice weight to them. The mechanism to “extend” them also feels good quality. At the office it always draws questions and has been a great icebreaker at those more awkward meetings!

    I’ve never had a decent pen before, I don’t know if I could go back to a crappy plastic one now. Delivery was quick too. Well done.

  3. Amy.Martin

    This was made to perfection. Couldn’t have wished for any better. Was beyond our expectations.
    Thank you so much.

  4. Eva W2k

    So, so pleased with my pen. I wanted a unique gift for a 40th Birthday and this is perfect. Presentation is stunning too.

  5. Andrea L

    I am absolutely CHUFFED TO PIECES with this pen! The quality and workmanship is brilliant, it feels lovely and solid, and arrived well packaged! It’s to be gifted, and I know it’s going to be really well received – thank you so much, Custom Calibers! I’d give ten stars if I could…!
