Aliens Smartgun Replica Means Business and Is Ready to Rock

by Paul Strauss

With the release of Prometheus just weeks away, it’s easy to forget about the classic Alien and Aliens films which created the universe in which the new film is set. But I can assure you that if you buy this gun, there’s no way you’ll forget about Aliens. Ever.

That’s because this replica of the Colonial Marines’ Smartgun is impeccable – and huge. This massive weapon is a full-scale reproduction of the one used in Aliens. This thing is not only huge, but it’s got to weigh a ton, as its made out of aluminum, resin and steel. It’s a real masterpiece of prop-building, and it’s ready to take on whatever nasty alien you can throw at it.

This custom-made replica pulse rifle comes from Movie Guns Inc. over on Etsy, and is just one of the many awesome replicas they’ve made of classic movie weapons. Chances are that you won’t be able to afford the $2700(USD) price tag on the Smartgun replica, but if you love Aliens, you might want to check out their M41-A pulse rifle replica, which sells for “just” $1795.

    I wouldn’t buy from this guy, he is a known recaster and thief. Bad form advertising for him Technabob!

    • Technabob says:

      This isn’t advertising. It’s an editorial piece on an artist I found over on Etsy. If there are concerns about his approach to creating props, feel free to discuss. I certainly wasn’t aware of a problem.

      • Concerned Citizen says:

        Not advertising? It has the product, price, and where to buy! facepalm!!!

        • Technabob says:

          Not to belabor the point but “advertising” implies we were compensated in some way for this post. We were not. It’s simply an editorial piece on an item we found interesting, and in the interest of being informative, we always include the pricing and location where you can buy things we report on here.

          • Concerned Citizen says:

            well prehaps instead of browsing the internet looking for something interesting, you do some actual work and invesigate your source. This is the equivalent of doing an interesting piece on investiment advice from Christopher Skase.

    Tech, I was just doing a report on bootleg when i came across the PX-3600. I must say I have never seen anything like that. I’ve seen bootleg PS3’s with built in hard drives with a switch on the side so you can play your normal games or play online, but the PX-3600 is out the ball park for me… Now, for why I started commenting. To Concerned Citizen – Everyone decides on what they find interesting and not everyone will agree on the same thing, just because someone is talking about something doesn’t mean he has to go in full detail of what, when, where and why. Its up to the reader to also do his own research and not jump into conclusions of what the writer is saying. Its funny how you say “perhaps instead of browsing the internet for something interesting, you do some actual work and investigate your source” yet your on here browsing and commenting. The info is interesting itself, big Alien fan. Oh, and your invesigate is missing a T by the way. Facepalm!!!

    Nice replicas…but far too expensive. Guys are doing much cheaper kits these days and some are as authentic as the ones shown here. In terms of the pulse rifle, you can buy the BB gun for under $300 now and it is as good a replica as you will find anywhere. The $700 + dollars asked by some eBayers for the Hero Pulse Rifle is ridiculous, especially since they don’t do anything!!!
