by Lambert Varias

Prop maker David of Naughty Zoot Design went all out when he made this replica of the Z-250 Light Rifle from Halo 4. Instead of relying on a paint job to get an authentic look, David used 14 gauge cold-rolled steel and copper to capture the weapon’s appearance.

The replica measures 40″ and weighs a crazy 28lb. David also applied a cold-bluing solution to the steel parts to protect them and enhance their metallic glint. The cold cathode lights last for up to 2h on the built-in 5000mAh battery, and are frosted with glass shards to emulate the in-game rifles’ sizzling core. The rifle also has a squeezable solid copper trigger and a decorative scope.

David spent about 500 hours and $2500 (USD) to make this replica, which he finished late last year. Now he’s selling it to help pay for a new car. David is clearly a talented craftsman, but he admits he’s not a savvy salesman. That’s where we come in. Rise! Rise and protect the prop maker! Spread the word about David’s masterpiece!
