There’s nothing like a good geek weapon to get me drooling, and this prop gun based on the M-29 Incisor Rifle from Mass Effect 2 has me salivating in spades.
The cosplay gun was created by prop-maker Zander Brandt of ZPROPS, and it’s a dead-ringer for the M-29 sniper rifle from the game, including all the little details, and a perfect paintjob.
It was created for a client who is working on a matching costume to go with. I’d think it would look quite perfect at the side of Garrus Vakarian – though I actually don’t know what the costume will be.
The only thing missing is the ability for this thing to actually fire rounds. There’s nothing quite like a weapon with the accuracy of a sniper rifle that can fire bursts of multiple bullets in a fraction of a second, and I wish it was standard issue in every FPS.
He built the prop rifle from MDF and PVC tube and used styrene to cover up the rough edges and seams so he wouldn’t have to use Bondo.
