Kahr Firearms Group Continues Support of Our Veterans


Pillager, MN – Our staff along with John “TIG” Tiegen, member of the Benghazi Annex Security team, hero of the Benghazi attack and co-author of  the book “13 Hours:  The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi”, developed a collaboration project to help support veteran foundations across the country.


In staying with the “13 Hours” theme, the project offers 13 Special Edition Magnum Research .50AE Desert Eagle’s featuring the Kryptek Typhon pattern, and engravings of the TIG logo, TIG’s signature and the Beyond the Battlefield logo – the foundation TIG and his wife Margaret recently founded.  Each pistol is numbered 1 through 13.

To date four of the guns have been auctioned around the country and raised nearly $40,000 for the Veteran Foundations they were offered to.  Below is a list of those who have, or will receive, one of these special firearms, each personally chosen by TIG.
