Check Out an Actual Handgun Customized to Look Like a Nintendo Zapper

Texas-based gun manufacturer Precision Syndicate has likely never crafted a more controversial gun. Posted on their Facebook and Instagram pages yesterday, Precision Syndicate managed to customize a Glock pistol to look the spitting image of a classic Nintendo Zapper, sold with the NES for games like Duck Hunt.

As you can imagine, reactions to the customization is a little all over the place. While I personally would love to have this as a fun, novelty piece on a shelf, there have been some concerns about how dangerous such a model would be to anyone who has kids. Because of the news coverage, Precision Syndicate felt a need to issue a statement via Facebook:

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 2 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.

Regardless to any possible backlash, check out the gallery below and let us know your thoughts in the comments:
