Starship Troopers, Sniper Morita Rifle

original movie prop weapon

This is the original STUNT Sniper Morita Rifle used by the character Sugar Watkins, played by Seth Gilliam. This is the ONLY rubber Sniper Morita to be made. It was specially made for Seth Gilliam by the film's armourer Robert 'Rock' Galotti. Seth Gilliam had 3 of the Fiberglass Sniper Morita rifles, which were fitted with full live firearms and the heavy faux Sniper scope. Every actor was given a rubber stunt version of their own weapon to carry, as the actual firearms could get to be so heavy. Seth Gilliam never received a rubber version of his Sniper rifle, so without complaining, he hefted the fully loaded fiberglass version. As a reward for his diligence, weapon's coordinator Rock Galotti specially made a single rubber Sniper Morita for Gilliam to use. The rifle can be spotted in several background "walking" scenes, as well as for stunts and jumps (like the jump from the ramparts in the Whiskey Outpost battle). It can be most easily spotted during Sugar's Death scene. The rifle also has several spots of stage blood on it from this scene.
