    I found this while looking for M1 Carbines. Thought it would be fun to see if anyone could top this? Lets have a dog fight!


    Collector's Firearms

    Who's bright idea was it to make an M1 Carbine sniper? I am sure what its not showing is the five car batteries that would have connected to the very large cable.

    What a bummer. Something made in Chicago used against us. I'm assuming it was, anyway.

    It does look rather heavy!

    You a reader? Go buy Stephen Hunter's "Black Light". Good read, and Hunter gets the gun stuff right 99%+.

    The M1 is EARLY night vision, based on the German 'Vampir" unit in your picture. The Germans were messing with
    it in WWII.

    I'm thinking it was Chucks shirt and jacket that was weighing him down.

    I know its probably just a non-functional movie prop, but I bet the ACTUAL kit in Chucky's hands is worth a fortune... wonder where it resides today?

    I remember watching that as a kid and was amased by that scene (if not the entire movie).

    You have not lived until you have plinked zombies from the balcony in a smoking jacket and frilled silk shirt. Pure class! The only other thing he needs is a hot babe in a pink fur-trimmed bikini keeping him supplied with dry martinis during the sport. :laugh:
