Starship Troopers, Watkins' HERO Live Fire Morita Sniper rifle

original movie prop weapon

This hero live-fire Morita rifle is casing #28, and is fitted with the original Hero sniper scope! The Morita originally contained a fully-automatic Ruger AC556 machine gun and Ithaca shotgun. There were only three Sniper rifles produced for the movie. This was the ONLY one to use a real shotgun and fully automatic machine gun: the other two had fake shotguns and semi-automatic Ruger mini 14's. Although the real firearms have been removed, the Sniper rifle still has both the working shotgun and machine gun triggers, as well as the internal barrel extension and mounting brackets. This actual Sniper rifle was retained after production by the movie's armourer Robert "Rock" Galotti, and was placed in his private collection ever since the movie wrapped. He retained the rifle as it was the best of the three and somewhat 'special'. I acquired the Sniper rifle directly from Mr. Galotti with great thanks to his assistant Breanna Livie for all of her help. The prop is accompanied by a signed letter from Mr. Galotti explaining the weapon's use in the movie and its full history.
