I Am Legend, Dr. Robert Neville’s (Will Smith) Hero Prop M4 Rifle

original movie prop weapon

This hero metal M4 prop rifle was used by Will Smith as Dr. Robert Neville in the 2007 blockbuster I Am Legend.

In the film, Dr. Neville is the sole human survivor in New York City after a virus epidemic swept through the world. Neville is in constant danger of being attacked by the mutant zombies, so he is well armed. Neville’s weapon of choice is a highly-customized M4 rifle - in fact, it never leaves his side.

This is a hero metal dummy (non-firing) version of an M4 rifle that features real M4 parts. The lower receiver on the rifle was custom made by the armory who built this gun for the production. It is not capable of chambering or firing ammunition of any kind, and is a non-gun and could be used by Will Smith without an armorer on set. Everything that would function on a real M4 functions on this replica: the retractable stock, removable magazine, working switches, charging handle, sling. The scope is a practical scope with real glass optics. The surefire flashlight and laser on the forearm are also both practical, and functional. The light and laser unit can be removed from the forearm and swapped to the other side - it is seen on both sides in the film. The pressure switch, which activates the light, was just stuck to the forearm with a bit of double-sided tape, so it could be moved around as well.

The prop is built rock-solid and weighs in at a hefty 8 lbs. This hero rifle is the signature piece from the film. This is one of two non-firing M4 carbines used in the film.
