    Disclaimer: I have not purchased from this seller, and I don't know anything about them. I am only posting this link because they have resin replicas of one of the blasters mentioned in this thread. They might be crooks, and they equally might be the most Stand-Up guys you'll ever meet. I have no idea.

    SciFi-models.com has a Buck Rogers pistol for 45 pounds (sorry, I'm in the US and don't know where to find the British Pound symbol). According to www.xe.com that works out to $79.24 in US Dollars.

    They don't have any Cylon Weapons, but their TOS Colonian Blaster goes for 65.99 pounds. That's $116.25.

    I was watching an auction on eBay for a Colonial Blaster that went over $125.00. Unfortunately I didn't notice the final price. I wasn't going to pay more than $125, so I took it out of my watch list at that point. Again, that was a Colonial weapon and not a Cylon, so I'm not sure how hwlpfull that is.

    The gun was used by various bad guys in the first season and by Hawk in the second season. The holster is a Draconian holster.

    Yea I knew the pistol was pretty common.. there were several used in the ep the fighting 69th.. by the bad guys guards.. I thought the holster might have been quinces from plot to kill a city as it matches his belt.. buck is wearing all black.. but I will look again..

    Ok so it might be a draconian holster.. that sounds cool.. I guess I gotta go look at the 1st episode..

    That'd be a "NUMO" or a "PNEUMO" from the episode "The Lost Warrior" or maybe from "The Magnificent Warriors" of TOS Galactica.

    One of them was just up on eBay a few days ago.

    Ok here is link to several pics of a Benjamin Air Rifle.. This doesnt appear to be the exact model. but you can see why I believe it is a Benjamin.. which I believe its an 80's model for sure.. as my best friend owned one.. you can see the small barrel rides atop the air chamber..

    The "numo" or "Pneumo" was used in a 1979 episode of Battlestar Galactica, which would mean that it had to be either a 1979 model or earlier. Considering that most of the "found" objects in the show were readily available items (and some of them high-end merchandise as exemplified by the Sidi motocross boots and some of the other costume parts like the Warrior's watches), they probably just visited a local K-mart or similar and picked up a half-dozen of the same model for modification.

    Perhaps the same design was maintained into the 1980's by the company that made them, but if anyone has any information about 1979 vintage air rifles, I'd bet that'd be the most effective place to start (if you're looking to find one).

    After looking at the website, I saw the Crossman link and followed it.

    If that truly is a Benjamin air rifle, it'll have a serial number on it which will indicate what year it was manufactured. There's a listing on the Crossman site.

    If its a model 340, 342, or 347 it should have a serial number somewhere between
    T298242 and T359568. That covers 1978 an 1979. I can't imagine they'd have used anything earlier than a year or two before since they probably didn't get the order for the props until a week or so before they had to play in front of the camera.

    Model 340 is described as "Pneumatic, .177 cal. lead shot, single shot w/ under lever pump & checkered stock & fore end"

    Model 342 is described as "Pneumatic, .22 cal. pellet, single shot w/ under lever pump & checkered stock & fore end (1st var.)"

    Model 347 is described as "Pneumatic, .177 cal. pellet, single shot w/ under lever pump & checkered stock & fore end (1st var.)"

    Maybe that'll help in the search?

    here is the Buck version , like the Hawk pistol some had the front sight and some did not .
    i still have some cleaning up to do, and polish the tip, add a Radio Shack trigger button. :)

    if i get real interested in it i might add the light in the tip. :p

    i wish someone here would make a small size strobe unit for us old retrogeeks.

    i remember cutting up camera flashes 25 yrs ago to put in scifi guns.

    * THOSE CHARGED CAPACITORS CAN STING CAN'T THEY :lol

    You shouldn't need a photo flash for a bright light, you could use one of those xenon flashlights. Everready used to make a pretty inexpensive one that used six, or eight AA batteries. Just drill a hole in the clear part, and put the bulb in it, it shouldn't be too hard to make a socket for the bulb. Either way you don't need the flashlight just the bulb.

    I once saw a close-up photo of the clear muzzle of the BR pistols and it had three holes drilled in it from the barrel to channel the light.

    That sounds right, it has been a long time since I've seen that photo. There may have been other patterns, but Run Runner's sound familiar. Thanks Run Runner.

    I just saw the BSG episode "Greetings from Earth" and noticed that the Eastern Alliance pistols looked like the Buck Rogers pistols. Does anyone have a capture of them? The holsters looked like they might be the same as well.

    The Eastern Alliance did use repainted Buck Rogers pistols. The acrylic tip was painted over as well. I have a good screen cap if someone would post it for me.

    What's with the way Starbuck always holds a pistol. He ALWAYS has his pinkie finger sticking out.. Is that some special Colonial grip?

    :lol I always liked when he used the Middle finger on the grip with all the other fingers positioned straight out.

    Dirk must have love torturing the Prop Guys on whether he was going to drop the Pistols.

    So...when is someone going to make the BR/Eastern Empire pistol? :D

    I can't remember, what kind of calculator watch were they wearing? I know there was a whole thread about it at the old ezboard RPF but can't remember now.

    Warrior watches were Compu-chrons. Made by the Hughes company. As in Howard. Very expensive then, even moreso now. Collected far and wide by vintage digital watch collectors. You can expect to pay up to $600 for a decent one on eBay.

    That's right, now I remember. It's amazing what some of those watches get now. The old black plastic calculator watches I've seen many times what they were worth even back then.
