Our Assessment: “Get to the Choppa!” If there is a gun in all of firearms history that deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it would be the Claridge Hi-Tec family of guns.  No unique firearm has been featured in more films than this aesthetically semi-futuristic gun or has been held by and showcased in the hands of Hollywood’s most famous movie icons. From Total Recall, Planet of the Apes, to Firefly and Iron Man 2 and many movies in between, the Claridge, and its antecedent the Gonsz GA-9, has been Hollywood’s go to prop in storytelling – Making this a highly collectible item.  Claim this firearm model that celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mark Wahlberg, and Sam Rockwell have held.  But it isn’t just the movie history that makes this pistol so unique.  The Claridge Hi-Tec was originally designed by Hungarian inventor Lajos John Goncz and manufactured in limited quantities by Claridge.  The forged steel frame and tubular shape housing, a telescopic bolt design similar to that of the Israeli Uzi, a high quality match grade threaded barrel, its button rifling, and the barrel shroud extension truly make this a one of a kind firearm experience.  This Claridge is new-in-box, given to us by the Claridges themselves, and are the very last of their stock. (WE ARE ALMOST OUT OF S9’s SO IF YOU HAVEN’T SNATCHED ONE DON’T LET THESE PASS YOU BY)  Win yourself a Claridge “Space Gun” and tell a Hollywood story of your own with a weapon that could be right at home in the hands of Han Solo or Captain Kirk.  Listen to your friends and family who told you to not be a “square” and get this totally tubular gun! These Claridge guns will soon have their own display at the Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.  This S9 is the short-length configuration of the Claridge pistols and are the only ones with detachable barrel shroud so you definitely don’t want to miss this one.  Good Luck!
