Now, it’s been more than 20 years since Aliens hit the big screen, but that doesn’t make this movie-accurate prop Pulse Rifle any less awesome.
The guys over at ThinkGeek got their hands on these limited edition replica guns which are completely faithful to the weapons wielded in James Cameron’s classic sci-fi actioner.
Thanks to the inclusion of metal components, HCG’s M41-A prop replica weighs in at a hefty 15 pounds, and offers realistic pump-action and a collapsible shoulder stock. Plus, when you drop a clip into the chamber with a couple of AA batteries, you’ll get an LED ammo counter – which locks in a reassuring 95 rounds – too bad it doesn’t count down when you pull the trigger. It’s a bummer they don’t include a shoulder strap for the price either.
