When I saw James Cameron's Aliens when I was a kid I wanted that badass gun used by Vasquez and Drake in the film. I later learned that it is called the M56 Smart Gun, and now there's an insanely cool replica of it that I would love to own! Here's why I won't own it, though... The 20-pound gun from Hollywood Collectibles Group costs $1,200. I guess I could sign up for their payment plan! You can check out photos of the replica gun below along with the "Let's rock!" clip from Aliens showing the gun in action.
The M56 Smartgun is a 10mm General Purpose automatic Squad Support Weapon used by the US Colonial Marines in the blockbuster movie Aliens. With an effective range of 1500 yards, it is equipped with a motion-sensitive infrared tracking system, capable of autonomous and accurate targeting of moving objects.
We are proud to present for the first time ever an Officially Licensed Life Size Replica of this iconic Sci Fi weapon! Measuring 48” in length and weighing in at 15lbs, this amazingly detailed replica is modeled after the Smartgun carried by all round badass Pt Vasquez.......Adios Xenomorph!

This is the HCG Exclusive Edition which also comes with a high quality 24" x 16" print of the Smartgun blueprints and specs sheet! A regular edition is also available, click here for more details.
