A guy on canadian gun nutz (our unfortunately named gun forum) was selling one a few years back that was actually used for a few shots in the movie (Didn't have the laser obviously).

It was out of my price range but it would have been ridiculously cool to own.

Exposure as in a tiny credit at the end of the movie and the guy who made it got to say "Hey I made that!"

That article was basically about how they didn't get any anything out of it lol.

That is such an iconic gun though and man, when I was young (hell, even now) that gun looked like it was from the future.

"Paid in exposure" is a sarcastic euphemism for doing work and not getting paid for your time and effort, particularly when who you're working for gets a tangible benefit, and especially when they try to convince you that merely being involved will somehow pay dividends later.

If you've ever been in an originals band, you've done gigs "for the exposure." If you record bands, then more than one has promised to pay you in exposure. (I've mainly heard this phrase in the musician sphere.)

Anyone in The Industry have an impression of what Walther's doing with their handguns right now? I've been waiting on a 5" PPQ M1 or 5" PPQ .22 to come in stock somewhere for going on eight months. I know things are hosed right now, but I'd think they'd have shipped some guns in that time.

Dead Reckoning

I spoke with their US based operation on an unrelated matter, and apparently the German lockdown hit Walther hard. They're still catching up with back-orders at the moment. I think their focus has been on the flagship steel frame models, since that's what I've seen in stock when I've seen it.

A Q5 slide with a dot on a paddle release lower is awesome, and I highly support your decision.

If you don't mind hunting for it you can manage that relatively cheaply.

Along those same lines, I'm about to go fondle a 952 and see how it compares to my Novaks Custom 645 I posted a while back. I already know it's going to be my new white whale

update: yeah it's loving really nice. The dude has it on GB and expects it to go for $2500+, which puts it quite firmly out of my "will ever own one" range.

So damned good.

Ever since I saw that 52 slide converted to 9mm on a 59 frame I have wanted to get a 52, convert the upper to 9mm however the hell that guy did, and put it on a steel 39 frame and create and Gen 1 952 that never was but should have been. (I guess a 539 frame might be a little less insane. I wonder if the 52 slide can go on 2nd gen frames?)
