You, too, can own the steampunk cosplay gun blade that a New York police officer confiscated from a man in Queens last week. 

It’s on Amazon for $44, listed as “STEAMPUNK GUN BLADE SWORD from Nylon Shoulder Sheath, A Must for your Costume or Collection, Finely Crafted Antique Finish, Laser-Etched and Engraved Accents, Spinning Barrel-26 Overall.” It went viral this weekend as the subject of a NYPD brag-tweet:

“Thanks to their swift response & help from the community, an individual (currently on probation) possessing this weapon & fake FBI shield was safely apprehended & taken to jail,” the tweet said.
