ALIENS M-56 Smart Gun Prop Replica (Limited Edition, Life-Size)

Check out this awesome M56 Smart Gun life-size prop replica as featured in director James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi blockbuster, Aliens.

This replica is the only officially licensed full-scale replica of the M56 Smart gun that was wielded by colonial marines Vasquez and Drake to cut down waves of Xenomorphs! It was also featured in the video game Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Only 600 were produced worldwide in a limited edition run, all quickly selling out.

Considered by all to be “museum quality”, this M56 Smart Gun replica measures 48″ long, is constructed out of fiberglass, metal, and resin, and comes fully hand painted with a weathered appearance – and a display stand:
 
 
 
 

To say the M56 is highly sort after is an understatement.   Yet as we speak we’ve found one available for sale via an Australian collector. Not via auction though – it’s available with a hefty Buy it Now price of $4,995, but since this is a very rare and highly sort after collectible movie weapon, this level of pricing is kind of to be expected.  

Check it out at the link below where you can see many more photos of the M56 Smart Gun that’s up for sale:

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Season 1 Colonial Blaster Prop Replica

Battlestar Galactica Blaster Prop Replica

Check out this rare prop replica of the Battlestar Galactica season one standard-issue Colonial sidearm.

That’s the Syfy series and not the original 1970’s/80’s BSG.

This Season 1 GALACTICA BLASTER is a highly-detailed, expertly-crafted prop replica. It is brand new, straight from the shop, and has not been displayed or previously owned. This is not a typical solid prop. It is cast in several separate components, which allow an unmatched level of detail. The body of the blaster is a two-part clamshell which bolts over a solid resin replica revolver (exactly as it was done for the show). The use of aluminum-filled resin allows for extremely realistic weathering. The grip panels are separate and bolt on just like the originals. The woodgrain on the grips is cast into the resin for a durable and authentic appearance. The side switches are cast metal for added durability. The piece is cast in aluminum-filled urethane resin. This prop is not based on an Airsoft and has NO MOVING PARTS.  The entire unit weighs just under a pound.

Take a look at an image of the weapon as seen in the actual Syfy series:

If you think this looks similar to the Blade Runner blaster you’d be right. The standard-issue Colonial sidearm was based on the Blade Runner blaster. You can learn more about the weapon on the BSG Wiki and on the IMFDB.

UPDATE: This item was originally for sale via auction on Ebay, and has since been sold. However, from time to time similar items get listed, so if you want to see what’s available now, follow the link below:
