Chloe's Tau besides the scope, looks pretty similar to it. So I'm assuming the words on the tau is basically a play on words of the real life smith & wesson.


Kind of weird since the Tau is based upon a revolver from a different manufacturer (Taurus).

I know, but that's my assumption on where the words came from.

It's written on the standard Tau too, and S1NGUL4R is right about what it says, "Sashimi & Words".

S&W is so much more flexable to mock than Taurus. I remember some other game (I know it existed at least) had  a product in it based of something in real life, but they named the manufacturer as a parody of their rival. Maybe they wanted to go for that? No? I dunno.

 

ND doesn't care to be correct when it comes to firearms anyways. The Mag-5 from what I can tell is a 357. Magnum and the Taurus Raging Bull is a 44. Magnum and it's 3 shots as opposed to the Mag-5. Not that I really care, just pointing it out. I myself prefer the 357. anyways. I own a Taurus 357. Magnum very similar to the Mag-5 in U3. 7 round cylinder, black, etc. The only difference is mine is a snub nose.
