    There were a few varieties of weapons used.They were all non firing except the few carbine replicas.They were an m1 carbine(or rather the receiver and barrel) in a metal shell and painted to look like wood.



    or just buy a hipoint carbine and paint it a brown color and add wood grain.:rofl:

    There are pictures of it floating around of the carbine and Heston does fire it in the film. I mean it would be a good weapon powerful enough to stop an army ape and small and light enough to be carried on horseback. Id use it for home defense and hunting medium sized game. No Hi point for me though.

    Those guns weren't Hi-Points, they were M-1 Carbines. The Hi-Point is a side-eject rifle and the receiver wraps around the top of the bolt and they didn't go into production until the nineties. The Planet of The Apes guns were Carbine guts, in those ridiculous looking stocks. Eric

    Yes, they were M1 carbines modified. In the second movie, "Beneath the Planet of the Apes", they had the same guns but also had some full auto Danish Madsen SMGs with fake wood furniture on them.

    If memory serves, it was a lightly modded Czech VZ52 rifle.

    I like where Taylor and nova are mounting up to leave the ape settlement for the forbidden zone. He asks Cornelous "do we have guns ammuniton?" Cornelous replies "yes only the best but we wont be needing them". Taylor then replies in true Charleton Heston parting the red sea style " well I still insist on having one!"
