    It's one of those thing where everyone says I want one, but no one wants to fork up the $$.

    For starters it's a 2 stamp NFA weapon (at $200 each). One for the Machingun, and the other for the Short Barreled Shotgun. There's a transferable M11/9 in there, that's $2500-3000

    So I figure it'd have to retail somewhere around the $4000 - 5000 plus mark. Dummy version can be had a lot cheaper than that.

    It's interesting that they chose to use the M11. The original movie props were based on the Thompson.

    He wanted it to be transferable. Transferable Thompsons run $14,000 min. There's a lot more M11/9's out there, and people don't get pissed at you when you modify them.

    Get back to me when it is chambered in 10mm armor piercing explosive tip caseless, like the movie.

    Very cool.

    I always loved the useless ergonomics on the side mounted LED round counter. Impossible for the operator to see during firing, but ideal for dramatic movie closeups showing impending doom!

    I always liked Deckard's pistol in Blade Runner.

    ah, we'll all have neural-implant, 3-D holographic heads-up display optics any day now... I've got a leaky shed, some rusty tools, and some rough prototypes... any guineapigs with a death wish er, volunteers to try some out?:p *edit*Don't let the parkinson's fool ya, I'm plenty steady enough to do delicate brain surgery with crusty gardening implements... and I make some fantastic chloroform.

    Oh, absolutely! I'll just need them (or a proxy...) to sign the consent forms in blood, though it has to be the blood of the 'volunteer'...

    er... I think I've gone a little off-topic here :D
