Has anyone made the new BSG gun from the 2nd season yet, or have good screen caps? It almost looks like a 45 auto build-up to me but I'm not sure.
Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that PtByNmbrs does a casting of it. Contact him.

So, where on the Galactica do they keep getting these different guns? Is one of the Ragtag fleet a guns dealer?

Unfortunately they are moving from the good looking gun dealers to pretty close to earth based gun dealers :eek:

Compare the above to a Mini-Season Season 1 gun:

There hasn't been an "in continuity" explination to the best of my knowledge. It's possible that there won't be one, and we are just supposed to assume that it's actually the same gun all the time.

The "real world" explination is that the original design was not good for filming gun fights. It was a clam-shell over a revolver. So they only got 6 shots before reloading, and to reload you had to take the clam-shell case apart, load up the blanks, and then re-assemble it before the next sceen could be shot.

I have to agree. The new one based on FN Five SeveN is trerrible. Not only does it look like a "normal" gun, but they picked a fugly normal gun to work with.

I really wish they had just reworked the clam-shell to have a cartridge ejection port and space in the rear for the action to move.

There's no way for them to have a good continuity explination of the change of the blasters. Near the end of Season 1 Crashdown (Raptor pilot) did indeed have the previous season blaster and during the first part of Season 2, "Valley of Darkness" but then by the next episode, "Fragged" he had the newer FN version.

I agree, I think they changed the gun for filming reasons. I still think the first two were much better looking for the show.

I think most models have the rail but only the DAO has the glove allowance trigger guard.

When I Googled it, it looked like there are three versions with the glove allowance trigger guard:
the Tactical (single-action), DAO, and the IOM (single-action).

Then there is The Five-seveN USG (United States Government) - "Single Action with checkering on the foregrip and backstrap, a squared trigger-guard, and an ambidextrous magazine release."

So the USG would be incorrect.
