Someone made a real gun look like a Nintendo Zapper because that can't possibly go wrong

Guns as a rule are loud, violent things that kill people so I'm quite in favour of not adding any 'cute' to them. So step up Precision Syndicate (opens in new tab) which came up with this Nintendo shooter, saying, "WOW, this glock turned out good!"

Unsurprisingly, there was a mild amount of outcry, especially when people thought it was commercially available. It's not though, fortunately, as this is a custom job, with Syndicate originally saying that, "we were waiting for someone to let us do this." However, there's been such a fuss that the company's released a statment (opens in new tab):

"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. This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past 2 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."
