    I saw the ROBOCOP gun in the JY which has been sold and thought it was cool.

    Any pics of the original? Any info would be appreciated.

    thanks

    Thanks Howard, Do you have any pics of yours?

    Are there any photos of the real gun used in the movie?

    I heard Richard Coyle made one. Any info on that?

    Also, I was told that MGC had the best replica ever. I can't find any reference or images of this.

    Thanks

    Sweet.

    Here's a photo of my Coyle version. It has the usual Coyle light and sound functions. The "Outland" items have nothing to do with the gun, it's all part of a display board where the gun is mounted.

    Here's a photo of what the Robocop gun was based on, a Beretta M93R.

    :eek

    Wow, sweet stuff.

    Does anyone know the differences between the KSC MGC and the Coyle one?

    Thanks

    I had both the KSC and MGC version.

    MGC is mostly metal and is much heavier, gas operated but it only shoots single shot, and has no blow back feature.

    KSC has metal and plastic parts, lighter, gas operated and shoots both single and 3 shot burst, plus it's a blowback.

    Coyle is a static display, with lights when you pull the trigger.

    The best is still KSC

    IMHO the Coyle is probably the one that most closely resembles the real movie gun, but is static (just light and sound). Coyle's reputation about attention to detail and accuracy is exemplified.

    The airsoft ones function to varying levels so they are more fun to play with. My personal choice would be the MGC since it is heavy and made with lots of metal, so it has the look and feel of a real gun, plus it is rare. From an airsoft point of view, the KSC seems very popular but that might be because it is more available than the MGC and therefore, perhaps, also cheaper. It also has burst capability like the real 93R based Robocop Auto 9.

    For a good display version, I'd recommend the Coyle (Coyle stuff also holds value) and maybe weather it a little bit, but for 99% of the world there is little or no difference. THEY ALL LOOK COOL. :)

    Hard to assess which version is "best" since it depends upon what you want... film prop accuracy, weight and feel of real steel, functioning and performance as an airsoft gun, price, ready availability, exclusivity, creator/builder name recognition/reputation, prop collector value, etc. What would be interesting is the whereabouts of the real movie gun, who built it, etc.

    Hi guys,
    Here are a few shots of the original screen-used Robocop pistol.
    The photo at the bottom shows the propmaker/gunsmith who made it.

    WOW. Great pics ed..

    Do you know this guy?

    Any info on the gunsmith would be appreciated.

    I wonder what the handle extension is made of. There;s no pics of that before it was put on the gun.


    thanks :D

    Hi Franz,
    Nope, don't know him. I was in touch for awhile with a writer for the various gun magazines and he did an article on the ROBOCOP movie.
    He was nice enough to send me these photos.
    I'll see if I can find the original article.....now, where did I put that???

    Sorry for my lateness in responding.

    I have not done this model for many years; a Springer air soft came out in the early 90s and was selling for under $100.00 making my light only model a very poor value at even $100.00.

    And the blow back models were soon selling for around $150.00.

    I was looking for a photo of my copy, and am glad someone found some.

    Mine (sorry to perhaps to lower anyoneÂ’s view of me) was a copy made from an early non-blow back gas MGC model.

    We did these when the imported models were selling for around $400.00 at the cons.

    At that time a fair deal.

    Hi Guys,
    Yes, I found the article. I sent it and the photos to two members that wrote me.
    Someone (I forget who) did send me an incorrect email address and the emails bounced back.
    If anyone wants a copy of the article (TOO big to post here) just write me with your email address at thefudds@aol.com and I'll email you the 4 pages from the article.

    I just got off the phone with no other than Randy Moore. He's the originator and liscense holder of the "Robo Pistol" and was also the Weapons Master for the first 2 Robocop movies.

    It was so great to talk to the maker of that gun. He said it was never called an "Auto9". He said that name came from a comic book put out after the movie. He called it the "Robo Pistol".

    Other things he mentioned was that there were a 3 and 7 round burst and a fully auto version of the gun made.

    The clip held 21 rounds and with the 7 round burst you could get 3 trigger pulls before reloading. He also said that he disabled the slide lock so the pistol wouldn't stay opened after it was empty.

    The grips were made out of Delrin and the rest of the parts were anodized aluminum. He also mentioned that he might be able to make a hard rubber cast of the gun from the original molds. :D :D They used those for stunts that didn't require shooting.

    He said that he made the "Flash Enhancer" at the front of the pistol make a Bow Tie effect as the pistol was fired.

    Anyway, I'm real excited about my conversation and thought I'd share it with you guys and gals...

    I just bought a KSC RoboPistol and it should be here any time...

    I have to wait to see if I can get the cast of the real Pistol. The molds are in boxes and he has to unpack them.

    He said the material is similar to a bumper on a car.

    I'll keep you posted..

    Congrats.
    I just received my M93R with the metal slide and barrel for the base gun of the Auto 9 mod we're thinking of making. I'll try and get some pics up as soon as possible..

    Here's the newest additions to my collection. A KSC Robopistol and a Neca Robocop toy. I got the 3 disk dvd also.

    I used to skateboard in Downtown Houston when I was younger and I saw them film the movie here. I used to hang out and watch them work.

    Anyway, I think that's why I like the movie so much.

    I got in contact just the other day to ask him about the replica that NECA is making. He said he didn't know about it and it's probably from RC3 or from the TV show. I sent him photos but haven't heard back yet.

    He'll be traveling back to his shop at the end of this month. That's where the molds are.

    He's said he was still interested in making a cast from the molds. If he does make them, I'll definitely give people here the info.

    I've seen one of the molds and I can tell you that at least one of the guns was an MGC.

    Does anyone have the pictures of the real prop gun they could post?

    Just doing a build, and could do with some nice reference of the real prop.

    Thanks

    As a sidenote, the gun was indeed named the Auto-9 as far back as the first film. It was mentioned in both the script and novelization, but that wasn't well known until merchandise started using the name.
