I wanted as close to a real pistol as possible with the wii zapper. The Nintendo one just doesn't cut it. I made this in one hour from a cheap airsoft gun i had laying around. The grip safety works and the trigger pushes the wiimotes trigger (b button).
I skinned Chung Dha's paper wii gun template ( with a glock skin making this the first ever barettaglockenspieler.

Step 1: Take apart airsoft gun

A lot of airsoft guns can be taken apart. This one was easily broken down. I can put it back together if I really want to later too!

Step 2: Make extended trigger pulling mechanism

This will be different for every gun. I just used some thick wire. I used a little 5-min epoxy to connect the wire to the trigger inside the gun.

Step 3: Print and make wiimote cradle

For this airsoft gun i made a small rectangular piece as well that connects to the bottom of the other paper piece and wedges into the gun. I printed it on matte heavyweight paper. The thicker the better. (no image scaling) it has to print out 100% size or it won't fit over the wiimote.

Step 4: Play!

strap on a rubber band and your off!

I wouldn't mod an airsoft gun for a wii shooter. You'd be better of buying a gun from Target and they even have them at Dollar Trees or 99 cent stores.

If you're going to rip someone about doing things right. Then use grammar correctly. Just sayin, no hate here

too bad the wiimote doesn't have a "black" color option...

Black remotes are being sold now at local game shops and also on ebay.  They work fine for this mod.

Dude! That's awesome, though the print-out box is a little strange. You should post it on WiiArmory.

You really should have taken the wii remote apart completely and worked with that :P
I agree with 5hrp13, chloride and others - the next version should pack all the Wii-mote guts into the colt body - which will take some work, but it would be so sweet to have a Colt 1911 Wii shooter! Heck, you could sell those, or at least I would buy one! Not really, cuz im going to make one now, even though I dont own a Wii! I use a Wii-mote with my Apple laptop, and some days I feel like shooting it! I always thought the 1911 is one of the coolest semi auto pistols ever made! I also agree with poultryduck that the 'Glock' slide doesnt look so great as the graphic - so what about scanning the airsoft slide and making your own? Or use one of these imagesthese images, use the other graphic as a template for folding and cutting (and maybe scaling) and whammo! But overall, great idea, with pretty good execution!
Yeah that would have been better.

Jesus, there is no airsoft or other type of pellet/ball gun whose barrel is the width of a wiimote. If there is, it's a damn bazooka. this is as realistic as the zapper will get!

Actually you could have just rewired the remote into the gun, you would have to de-solder most of the stuff though since the gun would be too small to fit the circuit board.

cool, but would be better with plastic as a holder. very awesome though :]
Im just telling you but that doesn't look anything like real>
very nice looking

Just for future reference, that's not a Beretta; that's a Colt 1911. And, no offense, but Colts and Glocks don't look all that great when parts are interchanged.

hey, if you look really closely you can actually see something that looks nothing like a gun!
