The Last Samurai remains one of my favorite movies, although Tom Cruise’s antics in recent years make me cringe every time I see him on tv or in a firm. AIM Surplus is selling the 11mm Mauser M1871/84 rifles used in the movie. After being used on location in New Zealand, they were shipped back to the US and have been stored in studio warehouses for the past five years. Who knew Warner Bros. had their own antique arsenal!
The guns are selling for just under $400 and come with signed certificates of authenticity.
More information about them can be had at the Weapons Cache Forum.
