    He didn't. He only made Brozza's. DC's Skyfall rigs were made by TADL from commercially available rigs...heavily cannibalised. This btw also applied to the shoulder rig on Casino Royale & the covert unseen holster on Quantum of Solace which was also used in the Casino Royale pre-titles sequence -{

    Very Nice

    IMO you have the finest Bond collection I have ever seen -{

    It's not just your opinion. Donk has THE best collection of certain Bond props even including Eons archive. FACT :)

    Plus donk knows what he's got as well, always an added bonus :D

    Donk has this increasingly impressive knowledge of all things bond, especially the guns. His interest, passion and genuine concern for the franchise and it's legacy is second to non, plus he's a nice guy with it who's always been able to point me in the right direction on more than one occasion.

    As always, stunningly rare stuff donk!

    Sadly I have no idea who BS or TADL are but I had heard that it was a modified commercialy available rig, shame because I would LOVE to get a hold of one.

    Keep the great posts coming

    My first screen used Bond prop and still one of my favourites. The majority of Walther P99 stunt guns created for Pierce Brosnan's Bond back in 1997 on Tomorrow Never Dies were either composed of soft or hard rubber but a very small quantity (I only know of two other examples) were cast in a high quality resin such as this one. The detail is amazing with very clear Walther engravings & serial number making this indistinguishable from the blank fire PAK it was cast off. A few years back I met up with Pierce's personal handler & he had personally never seen one in the flesh before or at least he thought he hadn't. A pair are featured in the Starlog Tomorrow Never Dies special (one with silencer) & they can also be seen in a number of TND publicity images including the main art British quad poster. A near identical prop was created for The World is Not Enough utilised in the "explosive" bankers office PTS where a recess for a squib had been cast in the magazine's base plate -{

    Once again very nice -{

    Is it weighted in any way or just solid resin?

    Oh no not another bloody prop? :#

    Sourced from a Bond 20 crew member as I couldn't track down a stunt Beretta Tomcat, specifically to be exhibited with Halle Berry's red leather Jinx costume from Die Another Day at the Designing 007 exhibition but then here's a shocker...it's inclusion was not required!

    One of 5 rubber stunt pistols cast off one of Ms Berry's 3 practical blank fire Beretta 84 FS Cheetahs. This particular example is fitted with one of the 3 practical silencers created for use on the blank fire converted pistols. At one time or another I have been fortunate enough to be the keeper of all 3 practical silencers which is also why the Cheetah at the 2006 Guns of James Bond auction at Christies was fitted with Jinx's Beretta Tomcat silencer. Luckily the purchaser of the Cheetah also purchased the Tomcat. The rubber pistols were also fitted with non firing aluminium & hard rubber silver painted silencers. The detail on the prop is simply amazing for something which would only be glimpsed for a few seconds on screen -{

    Not the usual ex-shop stock condition but almost impossible to find unused. Next stop linen backing and bleaching for posterity. It will be interesting to see the "Before" and "After" images -{

    Well 4 months later & it's back from the Linen Backer. I'ts been backed, bleached to remove water damage, acid has been removed & the fold lines have been carefully coloured to blend into the back ground. Rejuvenated but regrettably the oil stains cannot be removed -{
