“The Skull” (Geno Silva)
Zabala double barreled shotgun
Item # P00277
This Spanish made Zabala 12 gauge double barreled shotgun with chopped down stock was used by the character “The Skull” portrayed by actor Geno Silva in Brian De Palma’s epic gangster film “Scarface” starring Al Pacino as Tony Montana.
Mr. Silva can be seen firing the weapon during climactic ending of the film as Bolivian drug kingpin Alejandro Sosa’s men wage a full-scale assault on Tony’s mansion. Sosa’s main hit man, “The Skull”, sneaks up behind Tony Montana during the gun battle in the foyer of the house and shoots Tony in the back at point blank range, sending him flying off the balcony and into the fountain below, just before the final credits roll over the image of Tony lying dead under his statue that reads “The World Is Yours”. The weapon is in good screen used condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the armorer who worked on the production while filming the major live fire sequences.
This live firing weapon was purchased by the film’s armorer directly from Ellis Mercantile when the company went out of business. Also included are the Ellis Mercantile production rental records listing the shotgun, serial number, date of rental, and name of the production company.
