    Logan's Run "Sand Man" hero pyrotechnic flame pistol prop. (MGM, 1976) Vintage original hero functional prop flame pistol. Constructed of cast metal and resin components and expertly assembled to appear as a futuristic handgun. Featuring futuristic gun frame and smooth grip with main barrel and flash suppressor barrel with lower gun fin, blunt trigger with no guard, a screw-on end cap and small depressing button at the back of the grip that may have released the fuel to facilitate a flame when the trigger was pulled, causing a spark to ignite the fuel. Retaining the interior mechanics for pyrotechnic FX including a cartridge chamber in the back body and a battery concealed in the grip. Expertly finished in iron black with some colored dots painted on the upper back body. Highly visible in the Sci-Fi movie as used by the "Sand Men", assassin officers employed to hunt down and dispatch citizens who run from mandatory euthanizing when they reach the age of 30. The gun is used like a traditional gun, but emits a spectacular flash of fire from the 4-muzzle ports rather than a bullet. Measuring 13 x 5.25 x 1.5 in. Exhibiting age and production use. Electronics untested. In vintage very good to fine condition. Provenance: Camden House, June, 1996.
