M41-A Pulse Rifle - Aliens

The M41-A Pulse Rifle from Aliens is a classic science fiction weapon. The M41-A is gas-powered and air-cooled rifle, firing 10x24mm explosive-tipped caseless rounds with a magazine capacity of 99. The attached underhand, pump-action grenade launcher holds 4 rounds. Although the M41-A is pretty much a conventional assault rifle, without much special effects or typical sci-fi awesomeness, what makes it cool is the realistic way in which Ripley and her troopers put it to use.
