hello this is How to make a Star Trek phaser rifle similar to the later star trek movies and tv
it is not a 100% accurate phaser  but i think is fair 

Step 1: Gather Materials

you will need

1. a large sheet of styrofoam
2. a pen ( or better yet a sharpie.)
3.a picture of the phaser so you have references
4.scissors glue gun and hot glue
6.cardboard tape

Step 2: Draw the Phaser

( Unfortunely  I used a pen so the picture didn't come out too well.)

Step 3: Cut It Out

How does it work? There was nothing in it for it to shoot.

Actually that's a near perfect representation of the Phaser compression rifle from star trek voyager:elite force an excellent 1st person shooter that runs off of quake 3


Also I would make this out of wood as it would be alot stronger could be spray painted and would weigh the same as a real gun of that size if not heavier.
also you could file down the edges to make it curved.

I think thats actually a disruptor.

It's not, it's based on a Type-III Phaser Rifle, albeit a very rough interpretation of one...
