ZAT GUN AND HUMAN HOLSTER
David Read: The Zat'ni'katel is arguably the second-most recognized weapon in the entire Stargate franchise, next to the Staff weapon. Both are Goa'uld devices, but only this one can stun, kill and disintegrate.
This beautiful hand-held weapon, shaped into a coiled serpent, was introduced to Stargate mythology in the SG-1 Season One finale, "Within the Serpent's Grasp". SG-1 comes upon a crate of these devices and O'Neill orders them passed out.
This week Propworx is selling a screen-used Zat! This is a rubber stunt version which has been painted bronze with anodized purple and blue highlights, and features purple detailing on the end. Also included with this lot is a black nylon left-handed holster, specifically designed to go with an SG uniform.
The one-shot-stuns, two-shots-kill, three-shots-disintegrate functionality of the Zat gun almost immediately made it the butt of various in-jokes between cast and crew members, and soon worked its way into scripts. The 100th episode of SG-1, "Wormhole X-Treme!", features a similar exchange between in-episode television producers as they debate how to get rid of dead aliens lying around their set.
