The S.I. or Standard Issue Agent Sidearm is the MIB´s primary weapon and is, as its name suggests, standard issue when going up against hostile or dangerous aliens. This sleek iconic weapon is also known by many fans as the J2 or J-Gun.
Now, for the first time ever, you can obtain your own officially licensed Standard Issue Sidearm prop replica.
The Factory Entertainment Men In Black Standard Issue Sidearm replica was created after exhaustive and careful study of the original props to ensure maximum authenticity. The replica includes all the accurate details and features seen on the original props, as well as a number of added electronic light and sound features that were seen in the movie, but were not actually part of any physical prop. They were instead either added in post-production or with additional equipment and special effects. This has allowed us to create a self-contained replica that is faithful to the functions seen on screen without compromising accuracy. Each replica is crafted from high quality diecast and machined metal components which are then either polished or plated. The audio and sound effects were taken directly from the original studio audio tracks and digitally isolated and enhanced for clarity. Audio sound effects include power-up and weapon firing sounds. Light effects include LED barrel illumination, a firing flash and a red and green safety indicator.
Each finely crafted Agent Sidearm prop replica comes with a museum quality display stand, acrylic cover, numbered limited edition plaque, COA and detailed prop story booklet. Requires 2 x AA batteries which have also been included.
A numbered edition of only 1,000 pieces. The Limited Edition version features double chromed mirror-like plating to the gun body and rivet heads. The barrel section is polished machined aluminum, in keeping with the classic Sci-Fi look the film was seeking to emulate. The original props were initially highly polished to look like chrome plating, but this highly reflective surface proved problematic both on set, and in production stills. So various techniques were used to dull them down to reduce reflection and glare. The LE version seeks to replicate the original look and appearance of the props before any reflection or glare reduction took place, whilst still retaining a very durable and aesthetically pleasing finish.
