There are/were real life guns the spy agencies piece together out of innocuous looking items. Of course now with 3D printing anything can be a gun


Sort of off topic but it’s a sign of how much bond has lost its mojo, the 60-70s bond had a lot of real life innovations as a surprise in the movie and plenty of props that the principle behind them was solid enough to have the cia calling to ask about the breathers in thunderball

Yeah, now they're reduced to hot gluing cheap switches to the dashboard of an expensive sports car!

Here is the classic James Bond attaché case by Multiple Toy Makers from 1965.

It had a mechanism to shoot plastic bullets from the case itself, and check out the pistol in the case. It's a Luger pistol for some reason.

that's a very interesting bit of kit there Count. I wish it had been around when I was a tike! I think the went with the Luger looking pistol because it fits in to the fore stock attachment in the case.

Is Luger the only pistol you can fit a stock to?

This is not possible with a Walther P38 for example?

I suppose the could have done it with a wide variety of pistols, I figure the exposed barrel dovetailed much easier to the stock, the P38 would have also been a prime candidate.
