DescriptionColonial Marines Stunt Pulse Rifle from Aliens (TCF, 1986). One of the most famous sci-fi firearms, the M41-A Pulse Rifle, was featured heavily in James Cameron's 1986 action sequel Aliens. The iconic rifle was designed by Cameron himself and constructed under the supervision of renowned armorer Simon Atherton at Bapty Armory, the Pulse Rifle is viewed by many as the pinnacle of sci-fi prop weaponry.
This is an original static stunt non-firing prop Pulse Rifle used in the film. A mold was taken from the principal hero firing Pulse Rifle (evidenced by the presence of the raised plate surrounding the digital round counter), and the crew crafted the prop weapon from hollow-cast fiberglass. The prop was then studio finished and painted to detail. These stunt, lightweight versions of the Pulse Rifle were used in most sequences in the film where live-fire weapons weren't required. Most imperfections go unnoticed by the audience since action sequences were primarily shot in dark conditions.
Measuring 27.5" x 11" x 2.5", the prop exhibits expert studio distressing and soiling as well as expected age and production wear with minor chipping and scuffing to paint. COA from Heritage Auctions.
