ORIGINAL LASER RIFLE (1ST SEASON)
Original screen used hero "John Robinson" illuminating
Laser Rifle from Lost in Space TV series. (CBS-TV, 1965-1968)
First season Guy Williams "Prof. John Robinson" Laser rifle
used throughout the 1st season.
One of only two made for the show (Profiles sold the other non-working
version in 2003). This rifle is constructed out of metal with
wood pistol grip and shoulder stock. This rifle retains all original
light bulbs, trigger and acrylic emitter tip and shoulder strap.
Originally purchased in the early 1980's from Chuck & Rita's
Hollywood memorabilia and Rental Store. In the late 1970's, Chuck & Rita's
purchased 20th Century Fox's "fixtures" department obtaining a large
number of props and set pieces, this rifle was part of that purchase.
Only minor clean up/touch-up was done on the silver barrel area, all
other paint is original from Fox in the 1960's. Some wiring has
deteriorated, but could easily be made to work again.
(*) Photo #12 notice that the laser rifle has been modified! It was
repainted for Voyage episode, "Destroy Seaview!"
