THE GUN

9 - Gun (50p)

Gun from a charity shop, with a cardboard muzzle and a sight made from a plastic tube. That's a deoderant lid on the end of the muzzle.

I had an old toy pistol that flashed a red light and had a gunfire noise whenever the trigger was pulled. I took this apart and rebuilt it inside the new gun. It worked at first, but the introduction of beer into its mechanism stopped it dead.

For the second time I wore this costume out, I used a length of green webbing as a rifle strap. This was attached between the muzzle and the stock.


The Gun. It didnt look too bad in it's own right as a gun, but didn't look too much like the gun used in the films. Nobody mentioned it though, so that's ok.

Update - I totally cheated.

I am ashamed to admit that I bought a Fett Carbine Rifle on the internet for £12. Although I felt guilty about cheating, I modified the old gun into a passable Stormtrooper blaster.

The Fett rifle arrived white, green and orange so I needed to paint it black. I weathered it by adding some scratches and dusting it with brown spray paint. By "dusting", I mean spraying with short little bursts from a little further away than normal.

I used the same green webbing strap.
