A Texan manufacturer has recently stirred up some serious controversy after crafting a real life handgun that looks dangerously similar to the Nintendo Entertainment System's (NES) nostalgia blasting Zapper gun.

Precision Syndicate LLC, a machine prototyping company, came under metaphorical fire after posting images of the weapon to Facebook, after commenters feared the weapon may be mistaken by children as a toy.

But, in a message posted to their Facebook, Precision Syndicate were adamant that the one of a kind NES Glock Zapper is actually properly one of a kind, and was solely built for a friend of the company

In light of the "Nintendo Glock" drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be. This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past 2 days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible.

Thank you all for your support! Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it's common sense.

Wonder how Nintendo feel about this?

What do you think of this?

And I wonder if they'll make a working Super Scope too?
