'Scarface': Whatever Happened to Tony Montana's "Little Friend"?

Via commander_zero

The M203 grenade launcher custom-made for Brian De Palma's 1983 gangster classic was sold to a prop house after production wrapped, and later appeared in other films including 'Predator.'

With the possible exception of "Dirty" Harry Callahan's .44 Magnum, Tony Montana's "Little Friend" might be the most famous firearm in movie history.

Montana (Al Pacino) graciously introducing his compadre — a custom-made M203 grenade launcher replica attached to a Colt AR-15 assault rifle — to Alejandro Sosa's thugs during the climactic firefight in Brian De Palma's Scarface landed at No. 33 on THR's list of Hollywood's Favorite Movie Quotes. (Coincidentally, Dirty Harry's "Do I feel lucky?" is No. 34).

The M203 grenade launcher was introduced in 1969 and used extensively by the U.S. military during the Vietnam War.
