"Golgo 13" Inspired M16 Air Gun in The Works

Japanese "Combat" magazine publishes extensive feature on the weapon

Air gun maker Western Arms (aka Wa/Gunnet), who previously produced a Madoka Magica Homura Beretta M9 and a pair of Strike Witches side arms, in addition to a host of non anime-affiliated air gun replica weapons, will be making an M16 inspired by the weapon used by manga's classic gun for hire Duke Togo, aka Golgo 13. 

 

The new issue of Japan's Combat magazine talks up the gun and its replica with Golgo 13 creator Takao Saito and Wa's president in a 30 page article. In addition to firearms inside baseball, the piece also gets into rumors about a Hollywood remake of the long running manga.

 

Those Madoka and Strike Witch pistols cost around $400, so expect the M16 to go for a pretty penny.
