Step 5: Trigger guard

Personally I'm not happy with a pistol if I can't spin it. Its part of the fun, and adds a little extra to the design. This just happened to be another one of those steps that didn't get photographed until it was finished. But anyway.

I got a small bracket for modular shelving at the hardware store. I measured it against the handle some, then cut a piece off. From there I curled the edges in. I didn't want to have the corners where my finger would be, comfort is part of the design. Then I added two notches so it would bent more easily where I needed it, and curled it into the correct shape. 

To attach it to the gun, I carved a notch in the underside, and along the handle so it would rest more easily.
can i buy this from you
aaww man thats awesome gotta make something like that myself
if you bought it new why does it have glue on it? or was it old?
It was old, from a thrift store
oh . cool project btw
Great , clear, (fairly) simple instructable. Although, the gun looks closer to diesel, or cyberpunk
yeh the sort of gun the totalitarian leaders would have. while the hero would have a much more damaged looking gun. although this is still pretty bad a55
Very nice, you did a good job making use of your found items. I think my main suggestion would be to add some scrap leather to the handle, give it a bit more of a dystopian feel, and break up the shape of the glue gun.
I actually had some thicker pieces from a lifting belt that I was considering putting on but they just made it uncomfortable to hold. I think I might have some thiner stuff laying around. Thanks though. I've admired a lot of your work for a while.
