For those interested in such pieces of trivia. For about 15 years I was under the impression (from an old acquaintance back then), that the gun Purdey uses in Last Of The Cybernauts? was a 1970's childs die cast spud gun which the prop dept had painted in pastel blue and pink. For years and years I have been trying to find one. Today I have been told that it was in fact a resin casting of an actual rare P. Beretta 950b long barrel pistol. The one shown being bent out of shape by the Cybernaut was a rubber casting from the same mold.
