Amazing Fallout Plasma Rifle Replica Has Me Prepared For Post-Apocalyptic Future

There are a lot of things I love about Fallout 3, but one of the things I love the most is the vast arsenal of weaponry you uncover in the distant, destroyed future. From rusted pistols to high-power explosives to freakin' laser rifles, there's something for everyone. One incredibly talented artist took it upon himself to bring one of the game's more fantastic guns -- the A3-21 plasma rifle -- into the real world.

The impressive replica pictured above comes from Ryan Palser. Check out the full photo set on Flickr to see the many parts that went into bringing the weapon out of the game and into the real world. And for comparison's sake, here's what the gun looks like in-game:

Pretty close! Now if only he can get it functioning for the inevitable super mutant attacks...

Oh, and if this isn't awesome enough, Palser also did a great replica of the AER9 laser rifle from Fallout 3. I can't wait to see what he does next!
