Firefly (television) - Jayne Cobbs Vera (Adam Baldwin)

(Mutant Enemy, 2002-2003) The Callahan Fullbore Autolock called “Vera” used by Adam Baldwin as Jayne Cobb in Joss Whedon”s Firefly. Vera made three appearances during the short run of the show. Firstly and most famously in the episode “Our Mrs. Reynolds”, then in “War Stories” and finally in “Heart Of Gold”. Vera was originally made by the Gibbons Armory for the Robert DeNiro/Eddie Murphy movie “Showtime” and is based on the Saiga 12 Taktika semi automatic shotgun. Eight guns were made for Showtime, only two of which had folding barrels, the others were fixed in the folded position. Vera is based on one of the folding guns. The live firing Saiga receiver used in Showtime is illegal to own privately due to the short barrel, and has been replaced by the Gibbons Armory with a solid resin replica. This safe configuration was used to avoid the need for an on-set armorer. Although the barrel is still hinged it can no longer fold up; this is due to the custom additions specially made to the prop for Firefly. A series of special brass-cased dummy rounds were made and a machined insert constructed to hold them in the extended shoulder stock. A new sight-rail was added to carry the two new targeting scopes, neither of which is functional. The magazine and magazine well were also newly made to accommodate Vera”s brass cased ammunition. Finally, a machined aluminum muzzle brake was made for the end of the barrel. Vera is solidly constructed from custom machined alloy and steel parts. The magazine alone has over 40 components, all custom made by hand. The alloy parts are anodized in transparent lilac, blue, black and gold and she has phenolic-impregnated laminated wood furniture. The original Showtime magazine and magazine well are included in the auction, as well as a fitted flight-case and the Firefly propmaster”s original script from “Our Mrs. Reynolds”. The script was used to break down the script to see what prop requirements were for the episode. Interestingly, on the back cover page there”s a rough sketch of Vera”s elaborate, machined muzzle brake. Vera measures 36 inches long by 19 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide, and she weighs 18 lbs. Vera is featured on pages 110 and 111 of the Firefly Official Companion Book Volume 2 (ISBN 9781845763725). Vera was acquired directly from the Gibbons Armory and has remained in Karl Derrick”s Firefly Archive Collection.
