SCP-XXXX in its resting position.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a sealed locker in Site-08's Secure Item Storage accessible only to Level-2 personnel and above.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Springfield Model 1861 rifle with the phrase "Money Talks" engraved on the right side of the muzzle and possesses a modified wooden stock. The stock has a small compartment which opens from the outside, measuring about 2 cm in depth and 3 cm across. The anomalous behaviors of SCP-XXXX can be triggered through the following steps:

  • Opening the compartment and placing any amount of currency equaling $1000 USD1
  • Issuing SCP-XXXX a command, which it will then animate to perform.

Though capable of slowly levitating SCP-XXXX will teleport to its target if it is further than 2m away. The range of its teleportation ability is currently unknown. Once it has carried out its assigned task, SCP-XXXX will reappear at its point of origin.

If it is not issued a command in English within one minute of activation, the object will expel all currency placed in its compartment. When issued a command but not paid a full amount, SCP-XXXX will open and shut its compartment in order to draw attention to it.

Addendum 1: A list of several experiments conducted utilizing SCP-XXXX.

Command: Neutralize D-1221.
Results: SCP-XXXX expelled all currency put into its compartment and ignored repeated attempts of the same order.

Command: Kill D-590. (D-590 is located in Site-19.)
Results:SCP-XXXX manifested behind D-590 and fired once at the subject's cranium from point-blank range before reappearing in its original position. D-590 expired instantly.

Command: Kill D-3508 (D-3508 is located in LMaImb-Area-32.)
Results: SCP-XXXX expelled all currency put into its compartment and ignored repeated attempts of the same order.

Command: Kill D-341 (SCP-XXXX was supplied with ten 100 dollar newly minted USD bills in an effort to track where the currency manifests after being put into the object.)
Results: SCP-XXXX manifested behind D-341 and fired once at the subject's cranium from point-blank range before reappearing in its original position. D-341 expired instantly.
Note: See Incident XXXX-341.



Incident XXXX-341 Report: Two weeks following the application of marked bills into SCP-XXXX, a deposit of $1000 using the aforementioned bills was made at a Bank of America location in Milwaukee, WI. The amount was deposited into the local American Battlefield Trust's2 chapter's account by Michael Allen, the Treasurer of said chapter.

Allen was interrogated and was found to not possess any knowledge of SCP-XXXX. He claimed most of the group's funding came from donations, which were noted to have recently become 'quite generous.' An investigation into the American Battlefield Trust's activities and possible ties to SCP-XXXX is currently ongoing.
