Precision Syndicate, LLC, located in Odessa, Texas, posted a picture of a Glock pistol that was customized in order to resemble a Nintendo Zapper pistol. The NES Zapper is a light-gun accessory introduced for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the 1980’s. It was commonly paired with the popular game, “Duck Hunt”.
The post reads, “Finally… We were waiting for someone to let us do this. We weren’t the first to do it but WOW, this Glock turned out good!”
As of Monday evening, the original image has been shared more the 150,000 times, and nearly 9,000 comments have been posted. Comments on the gun are split. Many people complimented the gun, but others fear it may blur the line between toy guns and real guns.
In response to the controversy, Precision Syndicate said on their Facebook page that they’d like to remind the public that this particular firearm is not intended to be mass produced. They say it’s a one-time custom build for a friend. They also add, “Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.”
