A company in China (where else?) will be releasing this 1/6 scale all metal (die-cast) version of the M82A1 SASR. Looks impressive
Problem with 1/6 scale die-cast weapons? They are too heavy for the 12-inch plastic soldier who will become top heavy carrying the weapon and make him contemplate taking a dive off the shelf - NOT GOOD or cause the ramrod straight well-disciplined military guy to slouch - NOT GOOD either.
In my entry "3 shots 3 kills", I posed one of the SEALs with an M82A1 Heavy Sniper Rifle - click HERE for the link to the post
|3 Shots, 3 Kills|
Dragon Models DML had released a 1/6 scale 12-inch US Army Special Forces figure "Dean" armed with a Barrett M82 .50inch sniper rifle. More pictures HERE
Dragon Models DML also released a 1/6 scale 12-inch SCUD Hunter "Greg", US Army Special Forces Sniper, Gulf War 1991 in 2001 and he too came with a Barrett 82A1 .50 Caliber Semi-Automatic sniper rifle. I switched mine into a Jake Gyllenhaal as US Marine Corps Scout Sniper Swofford from "Jarhead (2005)" figure instead - pictures HERE
Bill Paxton used the M82A1 model equipped with thermal sight and Starlight scope in "Navy SEALs (1990)". The Original M82 Model was used as the 'Cobra Assault Cannon' in "RoboCop (1987)".
