As someone who really only got into this area because of lightsabers, I never thought I'd consider doing much else, but having seen some fine raygun builds, steampunk or otherwise (maybe someone could explain what the whole steampunk thing is all about anyway???)
So when I saw this at the local junkyard I couldn't resist. Mine is exactly the same as this one.
For those who may not have seen one, it is a ramset gun for nailing into concrete or steel, Australian made, uses a blank .22 cal charge to blow a large pin into concrete or steel. Highly dangerous and lethal (more so than an air operated one and fitting for a ray gun). The grip is black rubber and the main grip part is orange plastic, the part in front of the grip is aluminium which would polish nicely. I found out it is an obselete model and that soon you will not be able to get charges or pins to fit it from the manufacturer. So there is the potential for the market to have plenty of these soon. This cost me $6!
So, raygun poroject anyone? Let me know what you think. No idea at all where to start with this.
