    Off course, hopefully there should be a lot of discounts in the uk between now and then?

    Bit of an old thread, I know, but I just found this area :)

    Now that the VCRB is law, you might find buying a Pulse Rifle a bit more difficult... Depending on whether the vendor considers it a Realistic Imitation Firearm or not.
    To be safe, your best bet is to find your local Airsoft Skirmish Site, and play the 3 games over 2 months required for membership - Then you can legally buy R.I.F.s in the UK, so long as you're ovber 18.

    You do have a few choices for PRs.
    Spat at Spatcave Studios was doing a solid resin version for US$175 - And his armour is well worth a look too, especially since he met Terry English ( Designer of the original armour for the movie ) last weekend, and the pair of them sat down and reworked the shoulders for ultimate comfort and accuracy :)
    http://www.spatcave.com/spulse.htm
    http://www.spatcave.com/mojarm.htm
    [​IMG]

    If you want a more highly detailed version, Matsucorp Industries ( http://p067.ezboard.com/bmatsucorp ) produce a version with a solid resin Thompson, a resin grenade launcher, metal stock and barrel assembly and vac-formed plastic shrouds ( The brown/green bit :) ).
    The price is, IIRC, about double that of the Spulse mentioned above, but the pic speaks for itself:
    [​IMG]


    Then we have the firing versions.
    Pretty much EVERY Airsoft firing pulse rifle you will find ( Including the one on Airsoft Scotland's website ) is the same G&P kit you've seen already.
    It's got a few inaccuracies, but is nice if you can find it in stock. Don't pay more than about £300 for the kit itself though.
    It's also now possible to purchase a cheaper Thompson as a base, since Tokyo Marui have some serious competition from Chinese Airsoft manufacturers these days.
    http://www.landwarriorairsoft.com/acatalog/World_War_Series.html
    Landwarrior have the Cyma version for £125 and it's just as good for conversion as the TM.


    It's possible to mix and match...
    My personal rifle consists of a TM Thompson, with a Matsucorp shroud, stock and barrel mount.
    Originally I had a plastic G&P grenade launcher, but that's now been upgraded to a real-steel Spas-12 cage with a gas-powered airsoft Remington inside it - Which actually cycles shells.
    The downside is, it now weighs over 8kg.
    [​IMG]
    And there's a company in China producing aluminium shrouds!
    If only I had two grand to spare, and arms like Schwarzenegger...


    Lastly, the safest option is constructed from flour, sugar, eggs, and milk.

    NOM NOM NOM!

    Where can you get one from the UK that is simply a replica for fans of the movie which can be mounted & displayed and handled, but is not for firing. Is there an official replica?

    it depends if you want to paint and build it. i dont know of any pre made ones.(im selling one in the classifieds)
    comet miniatures do a kit for about £250. You can get a pre coloured one but need a bb gun to finnish it. About £300 for the kit and £150 and up for the bb.

    All that has been said is that it has been produced from an original screen used prop and that it is due out in the first quarter of 2008. There has been no mention on price yet

    In all honesty I would be surprised to get a high quality replica for that sort of price.... it just seems too cheap. I would always be wary of a model kit made by someone.... yes I know there are some out there which do look fantastic (Coombes123 for example), but I would much rather wait for a proper licensed replica to be released and pay a little extra for it.

    It will be interesting to see what HCG do with their version

    A licence doesn't always mean that a replica will be good.
    Take the official Rubies / Don Post Star Wars helmets, for example.
    A lot of those are awful, and very inaccurate!

    BTW, the aforementioned Spat "Spulse Rifle" is being retooled and rereleased.
    Aliens Legacy thread about it...Registration required.

    Wayyyyyy back, in either an issue of Crash! or Your Sinclair, they had a short article about a replica Pulse Rifle.

    Fired Ball bearings, the ammo counter would count down properly when BB's were fired and the grenade launcher fired some sort of Naval/yachting flares.

    :eek:

    Amazing.

    I know this thread is REALLY old but really want to get a replica Pulse Rifle. What are my options in 2011?, im guessing it would be a massive pain in the arse to get one from outside the UK in todays world what with terriost attacks etc. Any suggestions?

    It is indeed a fantastic rifle, had it for all of a week before I realised I just couldn't afford it and didn't have the room to display it so returned it but if you have the room and the money then definitely go for it.
