Already had this posted at the BBC last year :D

I'm 90% sure it's based on a S&W semi-auto, possibly with Houge grips (I'll explain with a pic later).



edit - the link to the caps and pics of a possible base piece are a couple of posts down

OK, here's a direct link to the caps, and a pic showing my thoughts on the base gun.

Suki's Blaster caps

I believe it's some version of a Smith & Wesson semi-auto--note the matches with the slide mounted safety, and the area around the slide release.

I'm guessing it's a resin cast--the finger grooves seem to match up with the Hogue grips, but the TV gun seems to have them molded into the frame with a separate "grip" that looks like the second set of grips pictured (but without the texture).

This is why I think Hogue grips were involved---on the grooveless grips, the angle of the Hogue logo is a close match for the angle of the sawn off grip section. Since it's a fairly unergonomic design, I'm just guessing it was based off the logo to "look cool" :unsure

I bought a couple of cheapy toy guns from KAPOWWE to convert, and just tonight noticed that the little "tube" above the grip on the toy matches the same spot on the TV gun...

Thanks--now if I could just find the time to work on it. :lol

HERE's the page, but they're sold out--no idea if/when they might come in. You might email them and ask--they're good people ;)

You might be able to find something similar elsewhere, but since they've sponsored the BBC's custom blaster contest for the last 2 years, I like to try and help them out when I can.

I'm pretty sure you can easily find those guns at KB toys. At least everytime I've been in there over the past few years I've seen them there. Usually on sale for about 9.99.

Very cool, thanks for sharing the pics. :)

On the show, the gun looked more of a grey color, your pics have it more towards a bronze look--what color's closer to what your eye saw?

I'd swear that's made from a toy gun--in the 3/4 pic, you can see how wide and "fake" looking the trigger is (even has a seam line on it)

yeah, its nice to see the details on the other side too. Also notice the pieces above the grip are open on the front, like vents.

it is almost a bronze colour
with dirty areas like mals from firely but not as much bronze shows through as his
and then some parts like the top ridge go more towards the grey
its a strange paint job but works really well
sorry i cant be more precise
i think the best thing is to paint as you feel best represents the screen image

Thanks---the lighting in the scene is so intensly "blue", I figured the color was off.
