Flashgun Lightsabers


New Member
So I recently acquired two vintage flashguns (a Heiland 3-cell and Walz 2-cell) that I intend on making lighsabers out of. Does anyone have any advice or experience making lightsabers out of flashguns? I haven't actually been able to find too much online. Thanks in advance!

Search up the custom lightsaber thread. Years worth of ideas. Given the standard size of d cell camera flashes, any third party parts sold by the lightsaber community have good odds of being adaptable.

This was my very first lightsaber build. It's not accurate, kinda sloppy (I still love it though), but it was my first time building. It's built on a Heiland, with Roys first shroud, wires, & t-tracks. The clamp & bubble strip are TCSS.
I'm not familiar with the Walz, but you can definitely have fun with the Heiland. Post photos when you've finished your builds, & have fun (y)
