Do you know which of these guns are real…or fake?
by John Miller

Are you a true gun collector? If you are, then you've come to the right place. But, you'll have to prove your worth with this quiz by identifying all 35 of these guns as either real or fake. Ready to put your money where your mouth is? Let's get started.

There are so many guns available to collectors and casual users that it's often difficult to remember them all. Even if you are a collector, you might not be aware of every type of gun out there. And to complicate things even further, many of us tend to confuse movie weapons with the real ones. Now, certainly, you're not likely to believe that a photon ray gun is real, but some of the names of guns in movies sound like they just might be the real thing. Either way, it's going to take some knowledge to pass this quiz and correctly identify all of these guns as either real or fake.

So, if you know that the Colt 1911 is real, the ARC gun is fake, and the Sonic Shotgun is fake (yeah, that's right up there with the photon ray gun), then proceed with this quiz to find out how much you really know about guns.
