A custom gun manufacturer from Texas called Precision Syndicate modded a Glock handgun to resemble the famous zapper gun that came with the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Like the zapper, the Glock is white and grey with red accents. It’s a pretty neat modification, but given how some folks feel about firearms in America, the gun maker has come under fire (not literally, of course).
Over on the manufacturer’s Facebook page, many people left negative comments regarding the gun, with some expressing concern that children may mistake it for a toy. Although there were also others who thought the design was clever and wanted one of their own, Precision Syndicate released a statement today which reveals that the Glock is a one-of-a-kind and won’t be mass produced.
“In light of the ‘Nintendo Glock’ drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be,” said the gun manufacturer on Facebook. “This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Due to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past two days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible. Thank you all for your support! Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.”
I’ve heard of fake guns that are made to resemble real firearms, but this is the first time I can think of where a real gun was made to look like a fake one. Like I said at the beginning of this post, this is a cool mod, but I can understand why folks would be upset over its existence. However, since this specific gun is the only one that will be created by the manufacturer, there is ultimately nothing to be concerned over.
