It’s a vintage Vietnam era Hi-8 camera for sale fashioned with a rifle stock back and was allegedly made for a military reporter. The rifle part, besides looking really freakin’ awesome, probably would be pretty helpful in stabilizing the camera to get a steady shot since it’s generally used to stabilize rifles for a steady shot. I would have to question the wisdom of heading out into a warzone (or anywhere really) with a camera that looks like gun. And I doubt you could get this thing past airport security! It comes with a black case and 5x lenses and I would assume the manual too (since it’s pictured).
