XM42 Handheld Flamethrower

What you’re looking at here is the XM42, the world’s first commercially available handheld flamethrower. Yes, the annual church weenie roast is about to get a whole lot more exciting.

The key here is there’s no need for heavy pressurized tanks, so the XM42 simply takes standard 87 octane gasoline to fill ‘er up and begin shooting flames 20 to 25 feet into the air. “How would you like your marshmallows, Pastor?” It goes without saying that the XM42 is intended for outdoor use only, and it actually appears to be legal in most states. It’s $699 for the brushed aluminum model or $799 for the polished aluminum version. Use it to melt snow, take down a nest full of wasps, or just set the night on fire. Watch the video below.
