Men in Black II, Noisy Cricket Unobtainium
replica movie prop
This is a wonderful noisy cricket replica made by Unobtainium.
Unobtainium's plan was to make these in a limited run of only 2500 guns and they unfortunitly went out of biz before they could complete not even half that number. It is said only 800 completed guns made it out and another few hundred in kits that had no stands certs or anything, just the pistol and parts un polished.. It's sad because they did amazing work. This gun is amazing. This is one of the completed guns that made it out. I am the original owner and it does come with a cert stand and everything. I used to own the Icons version of the Noisy cricket and I never really loved it. It was casted out of pewter and was far from perfect.. This replica by Unobtainium is machiened Aluminum and is perfect in every way to the original.. working light inside when you press the trigger, and the hammer pulls back as well via a spring.
Many remakes have been made from the Unobtainium Cricket. The best way to tell if its genuine Unobtanium replica, is make sure it comes with a cert and if no cert, the next best way to check is the hammer, if the hammer is spring loaded and pulls back, them most chances its authentic as the re casts don't have a spring loaded hammer.
Also to add, this is an interesting fact, some of Unobtainium's noisy crickets have a rubber grips and some have cast resin grips. I had asked them why they did that years ago and they said the early versions had rubber grips, but then they figured out that after so many years, the rubber will dry out and start to crack and break. So most real fire arms have hard plastic or wood grips for that reason.
they started to manufacture hard plastic grips to avoid this problem. This model has black colored resin grips. they are not painted, the color of the resin is black all the way through. So this info will better help when you see some models with rubber and some with resin grips..
I'm very happy and lucky to own it.
