"TSR-66. Cartridge driven taser pistol. Each projectile releases up to 200,000 volts. It can stun. It can kill, and it's nasty shit."
The NI-408, also known as the TSR-66, was a pistol manufactured by the OmniCorp Weapons Division. The N1-408 was notably used by the Joshua Duncan and Alex Murphy versions of the RoboCop/Remake as their primary sidearm. If RoboCop sensed he needed a weapon, or was threatened, his system would make his N1-408 available by deploying it from his right leg. The NI-408 used by Joshua Duncan seemed to be modified to use conventional rounds, as his NI-408 drew blood.

Overview[edit | edit source]
Trigger[edit | edit source]
The Hyper-touch trigger restricts and releases per the intentionality level applied by the triggerman. Finger “scales” measure and confirm ID prior to unlocking the charge. Ambidextrous safety levers come standard.
Charge[edit | edit source]
The Neuromuscular-Incapacitator (NI) is guaranteed to deliver a sustained damped oscillation “blunt” pulse with a 12-microsecond delay, 140-170 microcoulomb range, serving a peak loaded voltage of 9,500-12,000 V.
Handle[edit | edit source]
The NI-408's “Stun Suppressor” grip guards against reverse-shock while neutralizing the kick that accompanies most neuromuscular-incapacitating devices. Built-in horizontal stabilizers increase accuracy by 27.5%.
Cartridge[edit | edit source]
The adjustable drive-stun Smart cartridge delivers an electrical charge that penetrates up to 3 inches of protective combat clothing. “Attack Mode” will read and ramp until neutralizing the target's bio-functions.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
According to IMFDb, the prop used was a Beretta (like the Auto 9 from the original) with a custom shell that was created using a 3D printer. Production designer Martin Whist, art director Dave Scott and Vitaly Bulgarov, who is a huge RoboCop fan, worked on the NI-408 design. Vitaly had a chance to work on both early versions and the final designs of the NI-408.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The way the NI-408 extends from RoboCop's leg is a clear reference to how the Auto-9 extended from the original RoboCop's leg.
- The NI-408 replaced the Auto 9 as RoboCop's main sidearm in the 2014 film RoboCop.
- The teaser poster for the 2014 remake shows RoboCop holding what appears to be a pistol. Strangely, the weapon does not appear to be the NI-408 or RoboCop's M2 Battle Rifle.
