    Sigourney Weaver "Ellen Ripley" flamethrower from Aliens. (TCF, 1986) Original M240 Flamethrower modified with parts from M16 rifles and an M203 grenade launcher hand guard. The prop flamethrower combines the upper receiver assembly of an M16A1 rifle, with it's ventilated closed flash hider over the barrel, cut into 2-parts with the top gun handle facing forward and the ejection port reversed. The flamethrower is constructed of the repurposed rifle parts and completed by a cast fiberglass frame, custom resin and metal components and a large metal and cast resin fuel cylinder that attaches to the bottom of the weapon's stock. The flamethrower is expertly studio painted and finished in military green, gunmetal gray and black. With black web belt carrying strap attached to metal hoops at the rear barrel and gun butt. Aliens is one of few productions to use actual military liquid-fueled flamethrowers, in addition to safer gas-powered weapons used in other films. This liquid fuel flamethrower is highly visible when Ripley grabs it from a gun rack and combines it with a pulse rifle before going on to incinerate the Alien Queen's vast egg nest. This incites the unforgettable climactic battle between Ripley and the furious Queen alien. Exhibiting studio distress, production wear and age. Some cracks to resin/fiberglass components. In overall vintage very good condition.
