Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This full scale rubber replica non-firing prop gun as used in the 1983 Hollywood film Under Fire. Under Fire is a 1983 film directed by Roger Spottiswoode and starring Nick Nolte, Joanna Cassidy and Gene Hackman as journalists covering the Nicaraguan Revolution.

One of the most common weapons in the film is the FN FAL rifle, which is used by Nicaraguan Guardia Nacional soldiers and FSLN rebels. Oates (Ed Harris) also carries a FN FAL with a telescopic sight in Nicaragua, using it during a shootout with rebels that Price and fellow journalist Claire (Joanna Cassidy) are following. A FN FAL is used by a soldier to summarily execute Alex Grazier (Gene Hackman), in a moment deliberately modeled after the real life death of ABC reporter Bill Stewart.

This all rubber example was acquired from the Ellis Props and Graphics liquidation auction. Ellis was the oldest and the largest Prop House in California until its liquidation auctions in late 1999 and early 2000. The original ELLIS AUCTION LABEL IS STILL ATTACHED to the butt stock of this prop gun and reads DAY 5, LOT 5862.
