From what I was told back in the day, the original stun gun prop was made from an off the shelf staple gun with some redressing
The nozzles were from a pop rivet tool. I got one in the 80's and still have it somewhere in my workshop
It came with four nozzles for different size shafts of the pop rivets and screwed in to the side or the end of the tool, for hard to get to rivets.
The label has worn off it so I don't have a brand name for the tool and I have not seen it on the market for years
So I do need three of these stun guns for the con I will be attending. So after analyzing this photo it appears that there is about an 84 degree angle on the front of the gun with the top of the gun. As far as the body of the gun is concerned. It also appears that the base of the grip is a little wider than I have made on the other two guns. I am a little concerned about the width of the grip because it is not all visible in this pic. Does anyone have any other pics or screen caps that might show more of the gun?
What did you use or what process did you use to create the gun itself. I noticed that you do not a grip on the gun in this pic, did you make that as a separate piece. etc...
This has been an interesting discussion. I've especially enjoyed all of the images of the gun from the show. It has inspired me to complete my Sidkit stun gun. I purchased this kit back in 2003 or 2004. Here's a picture of its current state:

I just have to paint it now and attached all of the pieces. The push-button momentary switch is used to give some functionality to the trigger. Although the kit includes parts for the sliding stun/kill switch, I think I'm going to leave that off.
I understood that this version was a very close match to the gun in the series if not cast directly off one.
I used to have a Wilco Models stun gun kit but I sold that on ebay a couple of years ago. It was based on the Space 1999 Technical Manual drawing and really looked esthetically unpleasing when compared to the Sidkit version.
Wow. I hope mine comes out looking that good. May I ask how you attached the black section at the front? Did you pin it? Epoxy doesn't seem adequate.
