Nope, it was a little metal tube.

I didn't trust it anyway, and went with the testors. Now I gotta paint this
sombitch. :) It doesn't quite look menacing in a single shade of purple.
You are way more oldskool than me. I wish that I had picked up this hobby
while I was a kid in the 80's (yeah yeah) as I definitely would have kept all
of my models, and I'd have something to show for it (I know I would have
treated gunpra better than I did my transformers or star wars figures) ... I
only had two robotech toys as a child and I felt severely deprived and
crushed when my cousin mercilessly destroyed them (the same cousin also threw
my jetfire across a hall to see it "fly" and broke it into pieces which I was
never able to fix, despite my best efforts. And yeah, I liked it because _I_
knew it was really a Veritech fighter [valkryie but I didn't know any better
at the time])
