Now as with any DIY you might not have the same parts and you may have extra parts you wanna use. Your prop doesn't need to be the same or even similar to mine.
I used:
A toy revolver
2 small washers
1 slightly bigger washer
2 long and 2 short bullet casings
A small metal rod
A CO2 cartridge
A broken pen
Masking tape
An Xacto knife
Hot glue
And a saw

Step 2: The Handle

First I cut the barrel off of a toy revolver. Then I hot glued the short and the long barrel casings on each side. Then the washers.

Step 3: Sights

I found a little metal piece that looked like sights and glued it on top of the handle.

Step 4: The Barrel

For the barrel I took the CO2 cartridge and wrapped masking tape around it, covering up the printing.

Step 5: Attaching the Barrel

Then, I put a ring of glue on the cartridge and attached it. I then added glue around it for support.

Step 6: Adding to the Barrel

I think you shouldn't have put the tape on but thats my opinion and you should as the other comment said you should spray paint it then weather it but thats a great prop keep up the good work!

yeah I was originally going to spray paint it but I didn't wanna wait for the paint because I was just doing this because I was bored but yeah if you were doing this I'd say paint it ? :)

Looks cool, maybe you could paint it so it looks the same throughout the whole prop. You could try making a mold of it as well, so it is one solid piece. Good work!
