In April I was contacted via e-mail by a German woman who had seen this page on my old site and was interested in selling some EG ray guns in her possession. This happens occasionally, and more often than not the sellers have mistaken me for a wealthy, eccentric collector, when in fact only the last two descriptors are accurate. But this seller turned out to be fair-dealing, and best of all, she had something I had never seen before, specifically, this “rifle” style ray gun, clearly an EG, which is apparently a variation on their Thitan model Spacematic cap gun, a fine specimen of which I already own.
This, however, appears to be an “LR” variant of the Thitan, which term I adopt by analogy to the Super Thur LR. I have never actually seen an EG ray gun with a stock before, yet alone been offered one for sale. But this seller had two of this model, and I got the one pictured above shipped to my door for what was, to my mind, quite a reasonable price. Still trying to figure out the best way to display my growing collection.
Most exciting about this find was that I had no idea this model even existed before it was offered to me. The seller, intriguingly, claimed in one e-mail that “there are more space guns,” but her English was poor and I could never get her to elaborate.
