    So I figured $45, what the hell, I'll probably be outbid, and it's not mint anyway...

    But thanks to "RPF courtesy" and a little luck, nobody outbid me and this beauty came home today to Papa:

    Aim...

    FIRE... through the hollow 357 bullets:

    and with the bullets removed:

    Compare to a real COP .357, the back-up gun Rich's "Mother's Defender" is molded off:

    I absolutely love the LED effect and the paint job is great - no details are lost. About as nice as a working resin pistol with lights can get. :D :thumbsup

    "Wake up. Time to die..." :D

    I'd also like to give a shout-out to mrviper: "you've done a man's job." ;)

    Hey Prop Runner, could you give us the W5 on this nice little piece??

    Looks to be the EXACT same one used on the NEW BSG. The one that Sharon #1156844952154 (or was it #3??) used to shoot Ritchard Hatch's henchman with on Kobal?? There are a couple of really nice close-ups. I'll have to take another look.

    Looks great, Gabe. And that was fast shipping too.

    Enjoy your new acquisition. :thumbsup

    (who, what, when, where, why)

    That would be my guess. :p

    If it's not clear from the ended auction I posted, Rich wasn't the seller - I got this second hand, so no use bugging the seller. :p

    It's not a retail site. Rich posts here regularly and sells these and tricked-out resin replicas of other famous sci-fi weapons through e-bay and on commission. He's currently got an interest thread in the Junkyard for a Firefly Jayne's pistol (can't post the link, but should be easy to find). Contact Rich for more info. Hopefully he'll chime in here too. :)

    I also found this site that describes how a real COP .357 was molded, but it seems to be an old site and they're not taking orders:

    These were also used on the tv show 'Special Unit II" as their off-duty/undercover weapon.
