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 Rifle for this Giveaway is....
This Geissele ICON Rifle commemorates the Battle of Kings Mountain that occurred on October 7th, 1780 marked a pivotal victory during the American Revolution. Like all Geissele ICON Rifles, the “Overmountain Rifle” 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 “Overmountain Rifle” offers all the engineering and manufacturing improvements that are expected from a Geissele Rifle. Featuring an in-house 16” CHF barrel chambered in 5.56mm, it utilizes our Geissele Length gas system and a Super Gas Block to ensure reliability under extreme conditions and heavy use. 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 trigger. An Ultra Duty Lower Parts Kit completes the lower with its included Ultra Precision™ 5-Axis Trigger Guard, and a Maritime Bolt Catch.
Adding to the uniqueness of this Rifle is the Super Stabby Bayonet Mount, which allows mounting of an M9 Bayonet to a modern Rifle. Our Geissele Rail Panels, with their aggressive texture, are the perfect accessory to contrast the 15” MK16 Super Modular Rail’s smooth finish and rounded profile. In addition, our Geissele Folding BUIS are included to provide a rugged, reliable aiming system and come zeroed to the Rifle by our in-house sharpshooter.
All of these parts come together to make a Rifle that any Overmountain Man would have been proud to field across the American Frontier.
The MSRP of this complete package (if we were to sell it) is $2,435.

Referred to as “the turn of the tide of success” by Thomas Jefferson, the Battle of Kings Mountain marked the first major American victory, after Charleston fell to the British the previous May, in one of the worst American defeats of the war, and is considered a pivotal event during the American Revolutionary War. In fact, British Commander-in-Chief Sir Henry Clinton lamented the battle was “the first link in a chain of evils that followed each other in regular succession until they at last ended in the total loss of America.”
After suffering several setbacks and recent defeats at the hands of British soldiers and Loyalists alike, the war for independence was looking grim for the Americans. Then on October 7, 1780, Patriot irregulars primarily hailing from the surrounding areas of northwest North Carolina (today’s Tennessee) and the Holston River Valley in southwest Virginia, led by Colonel William Campbell, struck back a decisive blow that would help to renew the fight for the Americans.
The Americans faced off against British Loyalist forces led by Major Patrick Ferguson, who had entrenched themselves atop Kings Mountain, a rocky, forested hill located near the modern-day border between North and South Carolina. Referred to as "Overmountain Men", these Patriot militiamen were equipped with their hunting rifles rather than the common muskets fielded by the Continental Army and the Loyalists, which allowed them to engage Loyalist forces with much higher accuracy over longer distances. Combined with their use of then unconventional hit and run tactics, they waged a brutal assault up Kings Mountain to rout the British and take the hill. This decisive victory over the Loyalists was a major turning point as it demoralized the British and helped to rally the American Patriots war effort, all of which ultimately lead to the British disasters of 1781.
America would not be what it is today, if it were not for the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who fight for the ideals that our nation was founded on. Today there are still many Americans who selflessly sacrifice so much to protect our freedoms, as the Overmountain Men did before them. Supporting “Semper-Fi & America’s Fund” is extremely important as it goes above and beyond to give back to those who gave so much, by offering immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to U.S. Armed Forces and their Families.
Whether it be the farmers and frontiersmen, wielding their hunting rifles to defeat a global superpower and establish our independence, or our brave men and women currently fighting to keep those same ideals alive, one thing is for certain: without the sacrifices made on Kings Mountain, and the sacrifices made every day in the name of our liberty, America could not be the incredible country it is today.
