Precision Syndicate, LLC of Odessa, Texas, posted a custom Glock build on their Facebook page this past week, but people from all over the internet have brought their wrath to the company.

While there have been multiple mock versions of the Nintendo Zapper Glock, made famous in Nintendo’s interactive video game Duck Hunt of the 1980s and 1990s, Precision Syndicate, LLC is taking the most heat for their version.

They posted the photo below with the caption: “Finally…We were waiting for someone to let us do this. We weren’t the first to do it but WOW, this glock turned out good!”

Soon, they received a barrage of Facebook messages and comments that criticized their design, saying it resembled a toy too much and could cause major harm.

In response to the outcry, they released this Facebook post commenting on their custom build and the criticism they received:

“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.”

What do you think? Is this very real firearm too similar to a toy?
