Star Wars: The Armory

Ever wondered what firearm models were “propped” in 1977 for Star Wars IV: A New Hope?

I certainly have, it’s fun to watch how the SciFi’d up a bunch of surplus guns. And that isn’t the only one its fun to look at. Battlestar Galatica, Firefly, Alien, Starship Troopers, all have creatively mocked up props and it’s fun to see where they came from.

Luckily, both IMFDB and Ian have you covered.

Ian is just more fun. Hit play, you’ve got 12 minutes.
