Tremors 4: The Legend Begins' (2004)



Prop punt gun

Hiram Gummer (Michael Gross) purchases this 2 inch bore ("A" gauge) punt gun to combat the creatures in the valley and uses it to kill one of them before they snatch it and take it underground. Since authentic firing punt guns are rare and none could be acquired for the shoot, a 94-pound, eight-foot-four-inch prop was built. The entire trigger assembly of the prop swings down to allow the loading of the internal 12-gauge shotgun, which used triple-load powder blanks. WD-40 lubricant was sprayed inside the barrel to add to the smoke cloud produced when the punt gun was fired.
