    This is the first of two concept gun designs for Gaff that I have been working on for some time now and have finally finished it as a Rhino 3D model.

    The idea is that Gaff would carry this gun in his Spinner. It is intended to be a modified side-by-side 12GA. double barreled shotgun that chambers standard shotgun shells, as well as, more exotic futuristic ammunition. Beneath the traditional barrels is a single shot "Particle Singularity Cannon" (the infamous "Black Hole" gun technology that got dropped from the film). No clue how this would actually work, considering the enormous amount of collapsing mass that is required to warp space-time so dramatically. Not to mention how the hole would be made to evaporate the instant it devoured its target. Presumably the unknown particle would work all this out once fired from the gun. Science fantasy still, but it's an interesting idea.

    I hope you like it. It's on my list of projects to have 3D printed one day.

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I do appreciate it. I've been working off and on on this project for quite a while. I am happy to have finished the design, at least.

    The inspiration for this design comes from the 1966 John Wayne movie, "El Dorado". James Caan's charachter, Mississippi, carries a leg holstered sawed-off 12 Ga shotgun for his sidearm. This gun was later reused by the Doc Holiday character in the Star Trek TOS episode, "Spectre of the Gun", I believe. The lanyard hole through the wooden stock appears on both. Paramount Pictures was involved in both productions, so it's a good bet that it was the same gun. In addition, Steve McQueen made a holstered Mare's Leg Gun (a chopped down Winchester 1892 Carbine 44-40) a famous weapon in the 1958 television series, "Wanted: Dead or Alive". This too deserves recognition for inspiration.

    I look forward to the day when I can start building it for real.

    Thank you again.

    Rick, you gotta' cut this out....you're turning us all into slobbering idiots!!!! ...or is that your intention so that you can then TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!!!

    - - - Updated - - -

    ...Seriously, you took the guns from two of my favorite films/shows and 'Bladerunner-ized' it. Great job!!!
    Maybe you should have named this the 'El Dorado' after the film.

    Yeah, El Dorado is a great western. But I'm a fan of John Wayne flicks anyhow.

    Rick, I have expressed myself elsewhere concerning this gun. But I'll say it again. That is a sexy beast.

    Could you tell me what is going on inside that stock please. whats the spring for? does it feed the lower barrel weapon? the stack itself. looks to be a one piece that slips over the back and held In place with the butt stock? are there more pictures?


    I am totally infatuated and in love with this weapon Rick....

    Actually, the spring could serve any function. I only put it in as a visual distraction and to populate the inside of the grip, since they are clear. The spring could function as a recoil dampener, perhaps. Much like the hero prop for the film, most of the parts on this model were made as design elements to appear to have some useful function, but it is not known really for what.

    Ed and Noeland,

    I am happy to know that at least two others like the gun from El Dorado. When I first saw that film in the early 70's on television, and then later recognized it in the ST TOS episode, Spectre of the Gun, I've wanted one just like it. The Gaff Gun is my homage to it in a way. If either of you know the actual brand and model of shotgun they used, please let me know. I also want to make a Rhino model of it one day.

    OMG - Rick you did it again !!!

    Someone please call Ridley Scott - tell him to get moving on a Blade Runner Sequel and hire Rick Ross for the Art Design !

    She is absolutely gorgeous. I am in love with another Rick Ross sculpt.

    I think a lot of Rick's stuff was on photo4uC%-it unfortunately. If you search Rick Ross Gaff shotgun there are a few images.

    I've been out of the loop for a while. Can some let me know what happened to my linked pictures? It seems I am having a similar issue at propsummit.

    I just figured it out. That is very unfortunate. All my images were hosted by them and unless I upgrade to their premium account all links are gone. Bad day for me.

    Hey Rick, sorry about the pics. I linked your deviant art page above so at least they can go and see your many works of genius there!
    Look forward to your future masterpieces and hope you health is improving!

    You should be able to log in to Photophucket and download all your images. Either individually or as a zipped archive for each album.

    Then ... upload to another site with less business model seppuku tendencies. I use Imgur for social media posting, used to use Flickr (much more pro photog tools, with added capability with $ subscription). Both have tools to give you third party hosting/linking code in BBcode, HTML, etc.

    Then either edit your post #1 (or ask a mod to if you can't), change the IMG tags from the old link to the new links on your new photo hosting site.

    Time-consuming, but doable.

    Thank you guys. According to an article I read on Yahoo Financial, this is a problem for all users of that service. I will not be upgrading to their pro service. It's just not feasible for me to do so. Until I have time to re-post the images through another service, I just added my flicker link to the Gaff gun, as well as the deviant art link, to page one.

    Thank you again.

    Sincerely,

    Rick

    After researching other 3rd party hosting services, I have come to the conclusion that upgrading with my current provider will be the most reliable and expeditious solution to this issue. I hope I am correct.

    Hi,

    No. I did not make that. I have no idea who did. I do intend to 3D print my model one day, once I am able to return to a shop environment. I am flattered that someone took the time to make a version for themselves. I would be interested to know more about it.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Sincerely,

    Rick
