I just spoke with Michael Doyle, head of consignments at Julien's who personally pursued this piece over the past two years. He told me that Reuban Klamer, the original toymaker whose company built the rifle, has been in possession of the piece since it left the studio in 1966. Any claim by actress Sally Kellerman to be the owner is completely false. Mr. Reuben is still alive and is the consignor of the piece.
Which makes this absolutely, definitely, without a shadow of a doubt THE one and only, original Phaser Rifle!
