Movie prop replicas are a luxury item for many aficionados, sure, but for $900 an Aliens replica M41A pulse rifle better have a working ammo counter, spring loaded triggers and a strap so we can recreate the fateful finale!
Sadly, this one does not have any of that, although the rest of the build is certainly impressive:
- Metal barrel vent and collapsible shoulder stock
- Aluminum, "Brown Bess" shrouds the same dimensions and color as the original Pulse Rifle
- Light up LED ammo counter display– sets at "95" when the removable magazine is inserted
- Moving "Grenade Launcher" pump handle
- Themed wall display plaque complete with replica stock number
- No, the $899.99 rifle does not come with batteries. It takes 2 AA.
Metal parts mean you feel all 15 lbs. in your meaty paws and the grenade launcher pump action sounds decidedly movie-like (link is a video review), but for almost a grand one would think it'd be capable of literally clearing out xenomorphs from your fiery factory-themed basement if the need ever arose.
