The lights are on
Harrison Krix of Volpin Props is at it again. His claim to fame began with a spot-on replica of the Portal Gun, which we featured in an installment of The[Crafty]Gamer. Then the 28-year-old Georgia resident made waves in the cosplay community with his incredibly detailed Big Daddy suit. Now as a personal project, Krix, a fan of the Mass Effect series pays homage to BioWare's successful franchise by replicating the M8 Avenger Assault Rifle that looks real enough to shoot with.
On Krix's personal blog he explains the premise of the project:
"I've been a huge Mass Effect fan for a while now, and with the release of the second game I knew I wanted to take a crack at building some of the weaponry from the ME universe. As a bit of a personal challenge to myself, I decided to construct this gun from as much of my existing materials as possible. That is to say, 95% of what you see here is scrap I had in my shop from other builds. In the end, the entire piece only cost me $28 in raw materials."
Disclaimer: If you ask to buy the amazing piece of equipment for $28 he will send you a box of wood shavings. Fair warning considering the amount of work that goes into putting together a replica of this caliber (complete with working lights!), a process he details in his blog with in-progress images.
Kudos on the project! We can't wait to see what you put together next!

that looks awesome do that with the halo assault next
This is crazy awesome! While I haven't finished Mass Effect this is indeed worthy of a trophy. Man this is awesome!
Thats really dope but I never really thought that the guns from Mass Effect looked very cool
man...that looks so awesome 0.0
The amazing-ocity of this is incomprehensible.
wow thats amazing
that's weird, i just found this guy's site yesterday on my own.
Really sweet. Now if only it had the expanding/collapsing ability that we see in Mass Effect. I guess that could be his next challenge when creating a pistol or sniper rifle.
Nice... but not worth the money.
***, that is VERY impressive to say the least, and it only cost $28 in raw material to make? This dude has some talent.
i could do better
Dude this guy is some mastermind! How does one make such a beautiful replica?!
That looks amazing. Can I buy it?
That is so awesome. If it was in my range of money I would pay him whatever he wanted to make me one; not even kidding.
Now if only it folded up. If it only cost 28 bucks, I'd pay well over 100
Dang this is amazing! The level of detail is just mind-blowing!
