Star Trek The Original Series, Phaser Rifle

made from scratch movie prop weapon

This is a Set-Accurate JL Props & Models recreation of the Phaser rifle seen in the episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. The fiberglass shell conceals an animated and fully functional recreation that includes a 4 watt laser system and multiple sound FX. This hand crafted re-creation features all custom machined metal trims referenced to the Julian’s Auctions House Photos (of the set-used actual prop).

 

In the 1960's, “Napoleon Solo's Gun” from “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” had become one of the hot toys of its day. Gene Roddenberry reached out to U.N.C.L.E. producer Norman Felton to find out who made the toy; Enter Reuben Klamer. Roddenberry gave Klamer a tight two-week deadline to conceptualize and craft a Starfleet phaser rifle from scratch. Despite the time crunch, Klamer came up with a beautiful weapon, with three transparent tubes in its body and a little satellite dish at the end of the barrel. The thing came in handy when Kirk beamed down to Delta Vega in the climax of "Where No Man Has Gone Before," as the Enterprise captain used it to take down the telekinetically powered Gary Mitchell. The rare, iconic Star Trek artifact drew a whopping a final bid of $249,625.00.
