I am guessing if you are reading DVM you already know about the all-time greatest fictional gun ever used in a movie – the M41-A Pulse Rifle.
I first saw ALIENS when I was a kid all I could think after watching it was “I want a Pulse Rifle, Flamethrower and Sigourney Weaver is sexy as a Motherfucker”
For those of you who didn’t see the post about this over on Soldier Systems last December – a company called LAGE Manufacturing made a real M41-A Pulse Rifle based off of the one from ALIENS.
The original M41-A Pulse Rifle made for the movie was actually a 45. Thompson and a Remington 870 shotgun (with SPAS-12 parts) wrapped in a shell to make it look cool.
The movie M41-A Pulse Rifle was the standard issue rifle for the US Colonial Marines, it fired 10mm caseless, light armor-parsing explosive rounds with a 20mm pump action grenade launcher underneath.
Is that just straight-up sexy sounding or what?

The M41-A Pulse Rifle that LAGE Manufacturing made (they call it the MAX-41A) is a NFA registered SWD M-11/9 with an Anthony Smith style Suomi upper receiver and a NFA registered Remington 870 short barreled shotgun.
Maybe the kid in me is coming out but I think this is probably the most awesome thing I have seen on the internet outside of porn. I actually went over to gunbroker.com and looked for an M-11 and SBS 870 so I could build one of these fuckers myself.
It doesn’t look like LAGE is planning to sell these, considering the whole package is all NFA registered stuff it would probably pack a price equal with the firepower. But if they ever do decide to make it I will sure as shit be the first dude in line – damn the price.
