Destiny Gun Looks Like The Real Deal

Impact Props, the same team responsible for Nathan Fillion’s personal sidearm, have since made a replica Ace of Spades that looks as realistic as a fake Destiny weapon could possibly look.

It’s an ornamental thing, so it doesn’t do things like fire pellets, but the cylinder does spin if you like to play space cowboy in photo shoots.

The rifling in the chamber is a very nice touch.

You can see more of Impact’s replica work at their Instagram and company pages.

Correction: The rifling in the barrel is a nice touch, not the chamber. The chamber is the place where the cartridge is while being fired - in a revolver like this, there’s six of them in the cylinder. The barrel is the big long tube the bullets go through. Chambers are not rifled (at least in any firearm I’ve heard of, and I’ve heard of a lot), although they’re fluted on some for better extraction of spent cases.

And yes, that replica is sweet as frig. About the only way you could make it more realistic is to make it actually function. Which probably wouldn’t be too hard, for something like this at least. The firing mechanism would have to be pretty weird since the hammer is in no way aligned with the proper chamber, and it would be pretty dang heavy, but weirder guns have been made.
