    Hope this is the right place to post this, looking for help in locating/identifying a toy rifle, based on the attached picture. It was originally a "Defense Directorate Rifle" from "Buck Rogers In The 25th Century" TV series, then repainted and used as Guinan's "Magus 3 Rifle" on ST:TNG. Have seen a toy version of this offered on eBay but can't recall what it's called. Looking for this toy, if anyone has info, it would be most appreciated!

    That is ACTUALLY the real Buck Rogers prop rifle leftover from the series and repainted. Full size one-to-one scale I have been looking for the Buck Rogers Rifle to Years. I can't find anyone with a reproduction or kit. The toy version on Ebay is much smaller that the 1:1 scale. It was low production. You would be disappointed in the toy because of the size difference. Maybe someone here on the forum might drop one from their collection into silicon! The original props were vacu-formed. Man I want one for my collection. The Star Trek re-purposed one was sold at auction as a star trek prop. It was used in the ST TNG production.

    I have this prop.
    Mine is molded from an original and is hollow rotocast.
    If I can dig it up I will post a pic.

    Oh man, I love this prop. I generally have almost no interest in rifles, but the role this plays in that episode is fantastic. I was actually just mentioning to my friend @kertratz the other day that I wanted to try to track one of these down someday.

    I've always wanted to learn how to do a matrix mold for casting something like a rifle. Just sayin.'
