Yeah, I love the Mateba. Available in .357 mag, .44 mag, and .454 Casull. It's a shame they stopped making them, they were supposed to be really accurate.

Ha, yeah it does look like the guns from the BSG miniseries!

I was thinking the same thing. Still, cool as all get-out.
Here is a pic of a replica from the BSG mini-series:

And ya see, that blaster is so much more cool looking than the ones they use in the series. You can tell they put a lot of work into making that. It's made from a revolver, that particular one, being a replica appears to be an airsoft Colt Python. A lot of my favorite sci-fi guns were made from revolvers, like the Blade Runner Blaster; Mal's pistol from Firefly/Serenity; Will Smith's pistol from I, Robot. Now the ones in the series? An out of the box FN Five-Seven with a red stripe painted on the grip and a doohicky under the barrel... It just seems like they could have done more.
