Can anyone tell me if i have found another colour variant for this rifle, It looks similar to a Glassite version but not quite as light in colour. I have quite a lot of these Rifles in my collection but non of them seem to match this shade of blue, im sure it could still be common item Photobucket

Can you exclude the possibility this is a repro gun?

For instance by dropping it on the table and checking the sound in comparison to the other guns.

Or doing a float test?

The Kenner rifle has 2 shades of dark blue/black that I have seen.

The Glasslite version is far lighter and bluer in colour. No mistaking the difference IMO.

I've got 2 kits (with gas marks, without ) and both have stormie rifles. They're pretty much the regular ones. No difference. Good thought though!

I know YPS is supposed to have the other gun, but this one to the right looks pretty close imo.

That last rifle with the YPS does look very similar and could be the one. I would love to get my hands on the Glasslite one some day though Cool i'm dribbling just looking at that figure.
