You can buy a replica of the Good Samaritan from the Hellboy movies but there's no way to import anything even remotely gun shaped into Australia. This is my attempt to build a prop that looks as real as possible. NOTE: This is a REPLICA AND WON'T OPERATE AS A GUN - even tho it opens, the trigger and hammer move and the cylinder spins!!
