Jimsbeanz lives in our world, not Halo’s, but you’d be forgiven for thinking he was packing an actual UNMC Assault Rifle when you look at his modified replica gun in action.


Beginning life as a BOOMco Halo rifle (which shoots the company’s own take on NERF darts), the new paintjob looks nice, but the real star here is the working ammo counter, which thanks to an IR gate is able to accurately read every round that flies out the barrel.

In case you ever want to stick a counter like this on anything else you’ve got lying around the house, you can actually buy them on Etsy.
