This is the most authentic representation of this weapon available on the market. The M-8 is precisely hand-finished and hand-painted by the artisans at TriForce.

Intricately crafted and cast in polystone, it is a 1:1 scale replica that stands a massive 34" in length, 12" in height and weighs 20 pounds. Limited Edition of 500 made.

This is a pre-sale item with an estimated ship date of the first Quarter of 2012. (This date will be updated as more information becomes available.)
