Given the relative masses of the materials, it appears like it would be “top heavy” as a writing implement.
On the other hand, a man could probably reload the cartridge and fire it, causing serious damage to life and/or property. Perhaps a great Christmas gift for discharged veterans or their families? I prefer your other pens.

Very nicely done, as long as you don’t go shooting your mouth off with it. How do you re-load it?

It is not too bad on being top heavy. It is a twist pen.
