$1000 will get you a functional Patriot gun from Metal Gear Solid

Must be a Boss to buy

There’s an upcoming custom videogame replica that’s sure to pique the interest of Metal Gear Solid fans and gun enthusiasts alike. Snake Hound Machine, manufacturer of unique weaponry, is creating the Patriot from Metal Gear Solid.

The Patriot is an assault rifle that’s appeared in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Snake Hound Machine’s run will be limited to only seven, and they’re selling for $998. Serial numbers seem as if they’ll be chosen by the purchasers, as the code “T3HPAIN” has already been taken.

While only the upper portion of the Patriot has been built thus far, there will be one necessary difference between the in-game and real-life versions. In Metal Gear Solid, the Patriot’s a weapon that can be fired infinitely. Snake Hound Machine intends to equip its take on the firearm with a 100-round beta magazine.

Obviously, depending where you live, there may be restrictions on whether or not it’s legal to purchase this. Regardless, it’ll be a rare piece of memorabilia that’ll leave no question as to the owner’s dedication to the Metal Gear Solid series.
