Hi folks,

There is one public shot of this gun with some actual greeblies showing, not a cast of the gun with the greeblies included. I dont have a good res shot but, its this one from google

Anyway - it got me thinking that the gears might be found parts, though the muzzle might not be. Lathe change gears are similar sizes..

Also made me think that more than one mold was made. It appears some casts include the greeblies - maybe a mold of a cast or a a mold of a decorated spear gun OR a mold of a decorated bare resin cast of the speargun.

Anyway, the trigger has to be glued in place since the lever mech goes beyond the rear of this blaster. By the way.. there are at least 2 kinds of triggers with this model of speargun. I have a picture here somewhere.

Im also thinking that tab thing is a button and the long flat part goes inside something.

Ive been doing calculator research. The button is not from an exactra - there are shots where you can make out the font. Its very thin, and offset. Unisonic uses a very similar font but the brand is not a match.

No luck on the calculator button. BUT here are the two versions of trigger. I think the correct one is found on short barreled ones, which are more rare (of course)

and a proper rear flange, 2 states of damage

and the trigger mechanism is a long skinny rod that lifts the valve/lever thingy inside the rear cylinder. You can see the barrel extends into the rear cylinder.

This is why I wonder how it's constructed because that rod holds the trigger in place, which would have been removed or cut. though it looks like a metric threaded rod holds things in the back of the gun. There is space for the threaded rod to run all the way to the front/barrel, which is intriguing
