Step 1: Materials

This is a pretty simple model that didn't take long to make and looks great on a desk or coffee table.

You'll need:

2" 3/4" PVC pipe (1x)
1-1/4" 1/2" PVC pipe (6x)
Plastic cap to an aerosol can (preferably one with a beveled edge on one end)
Grip-Rite Fas'ners Tin Cap Disks
Wood (I used 1/2" ish pine I had lying around)

Paint
Wood Stain
Glue or epoxy
Double sided tape (optional)
Sandpaper
Scissors
Knife
Saw (Jig saw or scroll saw is recommended)

Larger block of wood and 2 nails to build the stand

Step 2: Cutting and Shaping

After cutting the PVC into appropriate lengths, cut out the middle of the cap and glue the top to the bottom (make sure to use a lighter to melt the fringes)

Then cut 2 rectangles out of a disk and bend them at a 90 degree angle and glue them between 2 disks (see the diagram below).

Next, cut out the stock and grip out of wood. You can print out a template if you want, but I just drew an outline from looking at the picture. I recommend a jigsaw or scroll saw if you have one. Don't forget to give it a good sanding.

Step 3: Painting and Staining

I used black plastidip for all of the plastic parts and a walnut stain for the wood.

Note the holes in the bottom for mounting on the stand.

Step 4: Trigger and Crosshair

The trigger and crosshair are both made from strips cut from the tin.

The crosshair can be made much larger to look like the original if you like. It can be mounted with double sided tape and then painted.

The triggerguard and trigger are just 2 strips inserted into grooves in the wood put in by a knife. (Make sure to put glue in the grooves first)
if you put a can of compressed air into the handle you could make this a paintball gun
now try making a sticky bomb launcher

itd be awesome if you could scale this up to the size of the grenade launcher...
it would be even better if you turned it into a potatoe gun.
lol go to comicon or a lan party dressed as the demoman and you tell people your grenade launcher can actulaly shoot and if they dont belive you boom potatao crotch shot
I was thinking about going as the Medic this Halloween, I look like him (tall, thin, medium-short dark hair) all I need is to make the backpack, get a lab coat, and maybe make a bonesaw.
YES! you are now my hero for that idea. (sorry about the caps)
What if I told you that I know how? ;)
Use a tazer and circuit connecter. You'll need to add a restriction plate so you can spray the hairspray in each chamber. Stuff small red potatoes in each hairspray chamber and if you assemble it right it will be a sweet spudgun.
hmmmmm. . . peach seem to be a bit of a tf2 person.

I was drawing plans for this and it was going to fire 37mm flares until I realized I was going to have to drop $400+ for 2 magazine loads (12 rounds) unfortunately, I don't have that kind of money I guess it's back to air pressure, toilet paper tubes, and match heads.
No, It is just a display model .To the author, great job! You could simplify some parts and actually make the barrels rotate, if you tried hard enough. But still, fantastic work!
i was gonna build this. (working of course)
