A Texan gunsmith has come under fire for modelling a firearm in the shape of a beloved Nintendo peripheral.
The gunmakers in question, Precision Syndicate posted pictures of a Glock handgun that they had fashioned to look like the NES Zapper on Facebook.
Concerned individuals were quick to point out that a child could easily mistake a the handgun for a toy.
Precision Syndicate have since issued a statement on the weapon:
“In light of the ‘Nintendo Glock’ drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be.”
“This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past two days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible.
“Thank you all for your support! Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.”
