whether it is considered “too light”);
(b) fabrication materials (whether it is fabricated in
metal, plastic or any other type of casting). For
example: some handguns (e.g., GLOCK pistols) are
polymer-framed and/or use other non-metallic
(c) whether the parts move or are in a “functioning
state” (e.g., slides moving back and forth, cylinder
rotating in a model revolver, etc.);
(d) colour (e.g., orange tip, pink or blue colours). Real
firearms can come in designer colours and/or with
painted tips.
