    Oct 1, 2010, 10:18 AM - 1st Season Lost in Space Laser Rifle #1

    Can anyone shed some light with a few dimensions for me for the Lost in Space 1st season laser rifle? I'd like to build one to have with my 1:1 B9 robot this will make for a great winter project. I have some great photos of it but need to get a few dimensions to get started.

    Thanks All!

    do you have any pics of B9 holding the rifle? You could get a rough idea with measurements by measuring the claws of your fullsize B9 etc.

    MRWrong no it's not the same. I also have no photos of the robot holding it, not sure if he ever did but just thought having it with him would look cool. Thanks guys

    It would definitely look cool. I am sure there are episodes where Smith piles up all the guns on him. Maybe I can find a screencap if no one comes up with the info, or am I thinking season 2?

    The rifle is based on the Remco "Monkey Division" Okinawa toy rifle.

    No that's not the right gun here is a photo that I found. This is the one I want to build that other one would be awesome but that base gun is near impossible to find and afford!

    man I am going to have to re-watch a few episodes, I thought the gun in your pic was a Season 2 rifle. That's the one I have always liked

    Folks I know someone out there has at least one dimension for this baby! I've been wanting to build this and other props from LIS but it's difficult to find info on them. Thanks all for your help and if anyone is giving away a free Monkey Brigade rifle send it my way!

    Thanks Again

    I used to own an original of that version. I molded the butt stock and grip and took tracings of the light box on top. I did some replicas years ago. The originals were made of aluminum and brass with the grip and stock made of wood. Cool stuff.

    The rifle is based on the Remco "Monkey Division" Okinawa toy rifle.

    This is commonly know as the "chariot rifle". It was made and used in the Pilot. Then was used in the first season as well as the other version.

    There is a third rifle, the third season version.

    There may be some seasonal overlap on when each was first used. I've never seen any kind of definitive list showing when each was first used.

    Kdawg1,

    Might I suggest if no dimensions become available, guessing on a piece of foam core. Cut it out and hold it up next to the B9. It may take a few attempts but you can get a fairly large sheet at Staples or similar office supply shop.

    Still hoping you get the dimensions.

    Ted.

    I love them all and would love copies of them all also! But right now and no pun intended I'm shooting for the John Robinson model!

    Ted, I'm thinking of giving a shot with that. I'm about the size of Guy Williams so I try and figure out that size that way if I can't find anything. A few members are helping me with this also but it can't hurt to get info from all over and determine norm from all that is gathered!
