Great add-on for future games! – Rifle Gun Prop for Wii Controllers Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This feels great in the hand, looks far more like a sawed-off shotgun and less like the new way-too-spacey Wii Zapper. Lock and load doesn't really DO anything, but is still quite satisfying to do. I couldn't put it down all day after receiving it at work.
Cons:
The big con with this and all the gun-shaped Wii accessories is that the default trigger is on the wii-mote, not the nunchuck. This means that this gun is better used in firing from the hip, rather than extended and aimed.
Other:
I'm hoping future games allow for button re-mapping which will make this enclosure twice as useful.
Bottomline:
Solid feel, satisfying "snap" when you load the wii-mote, and it's a simply a great gun accessory. Price is at least $5 + shipping more elsewhere, so the price can't be beat!
