-Need better pictures of the smartgun, but the the ammo counter sure looks like one of Matsuo's. A very nice piece if true.

-Smartgun breastplate also looks like matsuo's. The bottom most surface is fairly elongated which the newer ones from other makers don't have.

-Headset could be MarsAttacks (retired, sold mold to 'Chef', i believe). I can't see anything that actually identifies it as his, but just from the time frame the other materials appear to be from, I would guess MarsAttacks.

-Seeing the greeves are vac-formed, and again considering the time frame, I gotta guess they are Spats. Chef's wouldnt have been around when the other stuff was being made. Golden armor also had vac formed greeves, but those actually have detail in them, so I doubt they are GA. Pretty sure they are Spats...


(or did you mean "who" as in the original owner!? In which case I have no idea! sorry)

I have been told the smartgun I just got may be a Matsuo made.

It is missing the barrel in the front. There is a hole with which aooears to be threads.

Any idea where I can get this piece?

My email is ladyt1@email.com

Any help is much appreciated

If the leg armor is Spats, it's not very rare. I *think* he still produces armor, but I'm not sure how much or how often.

The smartgunner stuff, if Matsuo's, I have no idea how rare his stuff is. I don't think he churns out that stuff on a regular basis, but if someone is willing to pay, he'll certainly make some for you.

And I think it's safe to say that Matsuo makes some of the best stuff around, very nice indeed. Spat's is amongst the best as well, never hear any complaints.

leg pieces are definately not golden armor. I have a set from them and those do not look close enough to be a match.

Does it look like a hacked air soft gun, or a hacked german mg42?

You could try contacting Matsuo. If that's his smartgun, he might be happy to make it whole again.

The real question should be: Are YOU happy with your purchase? If you feel like a badass
when all geared up, and you look the part, then the items are "nice pieces."

But I'd echo what everyone else has said as well, they look decent. Matsuo does nice work
and Spat's items are decent as well if those are his armor pieces.

It all boils down to how happy the items make you in the end. :)
