WELCOME TO THE GEISSELE ICON RIFLE
A Geissele ICON Rifle is built to commemorate special dates and events in our Company's or Nation’s history. A truly unique and one-off Rifle; iconic if you will.
We want the ICON Rifles to be an opportunity to have some fun and also do some good. When inspiration strikes, we will build a single Geissele ICON Rifle and host a free giveaway for the chance to win it. Additionally for each giveaway, we will create a limited edition patch available for sale; with all of the proceeds donated to a good cause of our choosing.
The Geissele ICON for November 2020 is...
This Geissele ICON Rifle commemorates the Birth of the United States Marine Corps on November 10th, 1775, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, at the historic Tun Tavern. Like all Geissele ICON Rifles, the “Teufel Hunden” is not available for purchase. It is a one-of-a-kind Rifle and the only way to obtain it is to be selected as the sole winner of this giveaway.
Built on our Super Duty Line, the “Teufel Hunden” is a rock solid, feature packed, rifle sporting an in-house 16” CHF barrel chambered in 5.56mm. Our Geissele Length gas system and a Super Gas Block ensure reliability and a smooth recoil impulse. An SSA-E X with Lightning Bow® trigger, exclusive to the Super Duty line, offers the perfect balance between a classic M4 trigger bow and our Super Dynamic flat bow, enhancing your accuracy capabilities. An Ultra Duty Lower Parts Kit with its included Ultra Precision™ 5-Axis Trigger Guard and a Maritime Bolt Catch completes the lower.
A rifle celebrating the heritage of the US Marine Corps would not be complete without the ability to affix a bayonet, so we have included our Super Stabby Bayonet Mount, which allows mounting of the included M9 Bayonet. The 15” MK16 Super Modular Rail’s smooth finish and rounded profile create a comfortable surface to work with as well as endless versatility for attaching accessories. Exclusive to this ICON Rifle is also a completely unique Super Charging Handle featuring a larger SCH lever on the ejection port side, and an ACH lever on the other, all in a very rare, red, type 3 anodize.
All of these parts come together to make a rifle that is both aggressive and truly unique to honor the Marine Corps.
The MSRP of this complete package (if we were to sell it) is $3,500.

Shortly after Massachusetts was declared a state of rebellion, the seeds of liberty were planted and the pursuit of independence was underway. Colonists would meet in Taverns often times in secrecy, to bring news from other colonies and stoke the flames of revolution. The Patriots would congregate at these networks of taverns to discuss and debate their ideas of a new America, fueled by their liquid libations. About 40 minutes down the road from our small colonial town of North Wales lies the location of one of the most famous of these freedom symposiums. Located at the intersection of King (later called Water) Street and Tun Alley, Tun Tavern derived its name from the old English word “Tun” meaning barrel or keg of beer. This local watering hole would eventually give birth the finest fighting force the world has ever seen.
Used as a recruiting post by Benjamin Franklin to form the Pennsylvania Militia in 1756, fourteen years later it once again hosted our founding fathers and the First Continental Congress. It was here that they would inscribe the articles of War to build America’s first Naval fleet. The innkeeper of the tavern Samuel Nicholas, was commissioned as Captain by the Second Continental Congress and was ordered to raise two battalions of Marines in Philadelphia. The Taverns manager, Robert Mullan, was appointed as the first Marine recruiter. Colonists and Patriots amassed at the tavern creating the first set of yellow footprints. Then on the 10th of November 1775 the Marine Corps was born.
The Marine Corps birthday is regarded as a high holy day in our beloved Corps. General John. A. Lejeune can be credited with instilling the importance of the birthday when he issued Marine Corps Order No. 47, Series 1921. Gen. Lejeune's order summarized the history, mission, and tradition of the Corps. It further directed that the order be read to all Marines on 10 November of each year to honor the founding of the Marine Corps. Commands from all over started to honor the birthday and in 1923, the first official celebration was held at the Marine Barracks at Ft. Mifflin, Pennsylvania. In 1925, the first formal Marine Corps ball was held in Philadelphia. The customs and traditions created there continue to grow, and are celebrated by every Marine around the world today. It’s an opportunity for Marines to put on their dress blues and honor the ones that came before them. We toast to those who have served by our side and those who are guarding heavens’ streets. It is a tradition where we exemplify Esprit De Corps, celebrate our heritage, and pay homage to all those who have earned the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor.
From the Teufel Hunden and Crew at Geissele Automatics,
Happy Birthday Marines, and Semper Fi.
