Introduction: Steampunk Pistol Gun "Shrink Ray"

Picture of Steampunk Pistol Gun "Shrink Ray"

This is my firststeam punk build, not sure if it's a steam punk but it was fun.
Just used an old toy plastic pellet gun bought for $4 bucks last year for Halloween, so figured I'd use
some old parts laying around and I kinda got carried away.. Hope I didn't add to much.

A tutorial would be nice.

Hmm, based on the use of a "modern" semi-auto as the base, and wire instead of pipes or tubing the aesthetic it brings to my mind is cyberpunk. It just has that awesome cobbled together, post tech-apocolypse, black market/underground look that is so prevalent in that genre. That is of course not a critique on the gun itself, but merely a response to your "not sure if it's steampunk" comment.

I think it looks great and would agree with yosu that you didn't add too much. Everything seems to be connected to each other in a cohesive manner rather than just tacked on as a completely separate piece.

Perfect, that is sweet!

Really nice looking. Good work.

In my opinion, as a Steampunk, I would call it Dieselpunk. But, that's not important...

So, I don't like the red wire. I think black is better.
But the entire gun is very awesome and no, you didn't add too much. It's perfect! If that's your first gun, congrats!

NOTE: That viengar/oil thing is perfect. In Steampunk, it's a perfect part to make strange decimononic injections. :)
