    "Gorilla soldier" hero rifle from Beneath the Planet of the Apes. (TCF, 1970) Vintage original 35.25 x 4 in. prop gun based on original WWII-era M1 Carbine with original ammo clip. Stock is painted aluminum with integral sliding bayonet. Firing pin removed but is included with lot. Comes with original leather shoulder strap. Because these wooden rifles were so easily broken when fired, most of the rifle stocks were simply discarded. This is possibly the only remaining original hero rifle from Beneath the Planet of the Apes still in existence, and certainly one of the most important science-fiction weapons ever made! Exceedingly rare. Comes with soft protective carrying case. Shipping arrangements via federal firearms licensed dealer will apply. Leather strap is 30 in. long.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
