Default First image of new Aliens pulse rifle

Neill Blomkamp posted this image of the new pulse rifle from his upcoming Alien film:



" We all knew there would be pulse rifles. Obviously. Now with added RIS "

Looks like this one has a Sightmark Ultra Shot and an APTIAL, not sure about the flash hider though. Any ideas?

That is just ugly. Too much going for it. They built the original rifle over a gun and it looks nothing like anything at the time. Now, they are are tacking crap onto it. They need to invent accessories that are MEANT for this gun. My advice is to ask the guys at Manticore Arms. They seemed to know how to make accessories that fit whatever gun they put it on.

That PEQ does not seem to work with the general flow of the pulse rifle.

Tacking on a rail system doesn't make it new. They should have built something new based on a SCAR or something IMO.

The flash hider looks like an AAC Blackout.

Yeah, I'm okay with the carrying handle mounted optic (old skool operator) but the PEQ- hanging off the side there is just stupid looking.

I think it is more likely than not irrelevant at this point, as from the sound of it Blomkamp's Alien film has been shit-canned in lieu of endless Prometheus sequels.
