Default UFO RIFLE IN 'THE SPY WHO LOVED ME'

Hi Guys

Dunno if this has been mentioned on here before, (or even if I'm correct) but I was watching a chunk of 'The Spy Who Loved me' on DVD the other day (for modelling reference ) When I spotted what appears to be one of the SHADO rifles in the background of Q's Egypt test lab. Have a look at the screen these shots (sorry about the quality) and see what you think. Wonder where it is now

Cheers,
Wayne

Cheers fellas Always loved that rifle design, didn't realise it was developed by Q branch for SHADO, still this was 1977, three years before SHADO became fully operational

I think Derek grabbed a shit load of stuff before he left - this must have been one of them.
