Well I guess between this post and this post, the good folks at Quantum Mechanix decided that I need a Mal Reynolds pistol of my own. They graciously sent me one for review, and it just arrived in the mail yesterday. Needless to say, I’ve been playing Space Cowboy ever since.
The replica is pretty damn good, as you’d expect for $80. It’s made of polystone and metal plating, and looks like the antique it’s supposed to be. It’s got a real weight to it, and though it doesn’t have moving parts, it’s hard to imagine you’d want any more out of a replica like this.
Check out the pistol from a myriad of other angles and my non costumed self holding it below:
