Original Film Prop MGC ModelGuns Corporation M16A2 From Ellis Props - As Used in Hollywood Film Rambo: First Blood Part II

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a full scale metal replica non-firing prop M16 as used in the Hollywood film Rambo: First Blood Part II . This was acquired from the Ellis Props and Graphics liquidation auction. Ellis was the oldest and the largest Prop Houses in the World until it went our of business in the early 2000s. The original ELLIS AUCTION LABEL IS STILL ATTACHED to the butt stock of this prop gun and reads DAY 5, LOT 5859 . This is the second of two M16As from Ellis we have offered used in Rambo: First Blood Part II. Multiple M16As prop guns were used in making the movie and there is no way for us to know exactly which one this is, but we do know it was used in making the film.

The vast Ellis collection was acquired beginning in 1908, when a pawn shop, Ellis Mercantile, began renting merchandise to early filmmakers. According to Ellis Props, it began when a studio employee wanted to buy a glass eye. The pawn shop decided to rent it in case the owner returned, and it continued the practice with other items.

OMGC-M16/CP Replica M16A1 Cap Plug Firing Gun by MGC (Model Gun Corporation) Japan is in good condition but we do not know if it is still capable of firing caps. It is nicely marked MGC and MADE IN JAPAN. This particular model is the MGC-M16/CP. These work with replica "cartridges", which have small caps "plugged" into the front of them, which then is detonated by the replica bolt. These would then be ejected like a real spent cartridge, and could be reloaded with additional caps.

During Rambo: First Blood Part II a Vietnamese river pirate can be seen with an M16A1 fitted with A2 hand guards on the boat docks.
