This was the first gun presented to Wikus van der Merwe at the underground shooting range within MNU headquarters, the Assault Rifle makes short work of the porcine cadaver strung up for target practice.
According to Assault Rifle Designer Greg Broadmore:
”The tubes down the side each discharge an explosive burst of gas one after the other down the length of the barrel behind the projectile. This is a linear accelerator gun, like a rail gun but without the magnets. Of course it would fire these all rapidly to get a high rate of fire”.
An EXACT Replica of the gun used in Neill Blomkamp’s “District 9”, the Assault Rifle comes battle worn, alien gunk oozing out of its couplings and all the scratches and markings you’d expect from tough action in District 9 and handling by Nigerian gun runners.
It’s made mainly from fiberglass with some details made from other materials, like plastic tubing etc. where necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: Unless your genetic makeup is part Prawn, you cannot power up or fire this gun.
This limited edition prop replica from a total production run of 300 is one of the first in a range of District 9 items from Weta.
