Taken from Serbu's 'C-Can' product page at www.serbu.com. Some of you may have already noticed this, but...:

Short for "Companion Can", the C-CAN was originally designed as an add-on suppressor for the Companion flashlight gun produced by Ares Defense Systems. It works very well on any firearm with a threaded muzzle which fires .22 LR ammunition. The suppressor is constructed of 4130 DOM tubing and uses the same stainless and aluminum internals as the SIRIS. It has a parkerized finish and laser engraving, and quality is superior throughout. The thread at the base is 1/2-28 UNEF. Overall length is 5.50 inches and the OD is 1.00 inch. Though maintenance is not required, both endcaps unscrew should there ever be a need to gain access to the internals.

The Companion barrel adaptor is made from 4140 steel barrel blank, and is threaded 1/2-28 UNEF. It is rifled, unlike the Companion's stock barrel, and it has a parkerized finish. Price of the C-CAN is $225, the Companion barrel is $40.




THEY ALREADY EXIST.

Not to mention...Companion Can(non)...Cannon Companion...Think about it. :| :eek:

Slightly less scary, then, is the fact that here (in the UK) there's a company called Novatech and all they do is sell PCs and components. At least that's what they'd like you to believe...

How old are these companies, wouldn't it be funny if the founders were fans of Shadowrun?

Ares Defese Systems.

They've been around a little while and are mostly famous for their Shrike LMG, which looks pretty hot, really. They had a video up for download many months ago. Don't know if it's still up.

Actually, I don't think that would be funny. It would be scary. I would rather not have the corporate world stealing ideas from Shadowrun, but maybe that's just me.

most of the 'fictitious' companies in SR take their names from real-life companies that existed at the time SR was written. it's not scary, it's just unusual in that it means something in SR was researched.

Don't know how the makers of SR came to call a Redmond-based, gates-family-owned company "Microdeck", but Apple did survive splendidly. Well, at least as splendid as a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARES does, however. See for yourself in the ARES entry of CD.

Didn't take much checking to find theses ones. While at it, it seemed to me that some or more have names with a more general meaning (the chinese or japanese in particular, though there isn't much left, I suppose,) while others might just have sounded nice....

Aztechnology(the real one) was founded in 1989. Didn't SR come out in 1988?
