Elysium - Pistols

Here's the final pistol designs that were seen in the film. That one on the right is a taser variant.
This was Carlyle's customised gold-plated, ivory gripped personal weapon that was filmed but didn't survive the edit. On the right is some of the patternwork I drew for the engraving, I referenced currency iconography and poison ivy cos he is rich and bad. Deep!

Here's pics of the final props. They were pretty functional with recoil and smoke puffin' out, really impressive. Those Weta dudes know what they're doing eh!


  1. At what point was the Carlyle gun supposed to appear? I came across it in the eBay auction and tried to figure out if Carlyle was to pick it up as personal security in his office before heading out (like the thing with the Sabre Cerebral Defense), attempt to use it during the heist, or have it taken off of him after he's been shot?

    1. I'm pretty sure he has it on him during the heist. Can't remember what happened with it in the script but it did feature, maybe he got a couple of shots off?
