Default Original Star Cops Gun

I have obtained the Star Cops Laser pistol prop. This is the standard sidearm carried by all of the ISPF officers. It is described in the series as having a variable output frequency (so that you can target individual skin pigmentation!). This is never seen in the series but the prop does have a set of switches and a 7-segment display at the rear, presumably for this function. When we do see the weapon fired, there is no beam, just a muzzle flash (which is more realistic I suppose). This prop does contain the electronics (I assume it must be the 'hero' version?), I have carefully applied voltage, but have not been able to persuade it to fire. Nonetheless, it is not in bad condition for its age (26 years!). There is wear on the black rubber covering on the rear but otherwise it's pretty good.

The butt looks like the grips from a Webley Air Pistol, perhaps the Tempest model? It is just brilliant, thanks for sharing images Kev.
