The Tooth About Zander Brandt’s Mass Effect 2 M-29 Incisor Rifle

It’s been ages since we first checked in with prop-meister Zander Brandt’s M-29 Incisor Rifle project for an unnamed fan of the Mass Effect videogame series. As you can see from the final images, nobody does the George Lucas pre-distressed look better than Brandt. For those you who may wondering what this weapon is supposed to do (i.e. those of you who haven’t experienced high Mass), here’s a word from the wiki-wise: “Firing three shots with each pull of the trigger, the Incisor’s burst is so fast that all three rounds will be in the target by the time the barrel has moved a millimeter, increasing its stopping power without sacrificing accuracy. As an added benefit, the noise of the burst is comparable to a single rifle shot in duration, making it no easier to locate the sniper by sound.” Brandt’s gun is quieter still.

    I’ve never understood why modern firearms manufacturers don’t look to video games and scifi for new ideas.

    War and conflict breeds ingenuity (look at the space race), why can’t fiction do the same? I know, I’m not privy to everything that goes on behind the scenes with said firearms companies, but we don’t see half of those ideas until 10 years have passed.

    Look at Sons of Guns for example. They make all kinds of neat stuff, but it’s always an amalgamation of other crap, or rebuilt guns. They’ve to impress me with anything built from scratch.

      If you’re referring to the super fast 3 round burst this gun is supposed to have, I wonder if the video game actually got the idea from real world guns like the G11 or AN94.

        It’s easy to base something in a video game on a real life application. It’s the other way around that I don’t see enough of.

    someone needs to make a semi-auto version of this gun. that design is sweet

    FN is really taking the boldest design steps among mainstream arms makers, and Kel Tec is innovative and risk-taking on a smaller scale. The P90 and S2000 designs are functional and James Cameron-esque; I wish I had them both.

    1. avatar JT says:

      Kel-Tec has a couple really sweet designs that I would love to own. Nothing brand new per say, but definitely innovative. FN as well.

      The caliber 5.45×39 mm Russian Nikonov AN-94 is interesting. Its two round “blow back shifted pulse (BBSP)” burst mode is supposed to be so quick (1800 rpm) that those two rounds can punch just one hole out to around 100M. In full auto mode the rate of fire drops to 600 rpm. Apparently the AN-94 is too expensive for the Russian military to deploy extensively.

    Sorry, I thought I was at The Truth About Guns, not The Truth About Guns That Don’t Exist Except in Video Games.

      I thought I was the one almost always taking everything way too seriously. The Truth About Guns is that many of us gun owners find many of the modern ‘tactical’ guns friggin ugly and cold. This model is a class-act beauty.

      HALO, Lego and Call Of Duty guns are all good fun around here. not as much fun as the real thing, obviously.

    It looks kinda cute, like the bastard son of a PS90 and a Steyr Aug A1. If it was real, I’m certain it would be illegal in Massachusetts.

    If that was real, I’d buy it. Very cool looking. I guess it’s no wonder I’m a big FNH fan. So far, I’ve got: SCAR-16S, FS2000, FNP-45T, and Five-seveN. PS90 is on the wish list along with some others. IMHO, FNH leads the way with innovative design. But, damn they’re expensive! 🙂
