Instructables
I been searching around for a good Wii gun but allot that you can buy are expensive and the ones you can make look odd. So I made a template you can cut out and if you know how to work with adobe suit you could also color it in the colors or with the graphics you want.

Step 1: Download the pdf and print it out

Picture of Download the pdf and print it out
Download the pdf , edit pdf and print it out. Then get the the materials you want to use.

Edit the PDF in Illustrator with the colors or graphics that you want. Also you could make it look even more like a real gun. Also print the grip of the gun few times out so you get the best size for you or the kids.

Print it out on normal paper.

Past it and a cardboard and cut it out. Best is to use cereal boxes because those cardboard got a big flat surface compared to other packaging and also it is totally free. It cheaper than to buy a big sheet of cardboard.

You could also laminate the printed sheet so it is water resistant but then you don't have to past it on a piece of cardboard because laminated sheets make it strong inof.

I paste it on acrylate sheet and then remove the printed sheet.

Don't forget to use a empty pen to follow the fold lines so it is easier to fold.

i did this.... and i tell u it was easy.. used an old carboard covered textbook... worked perfect.... taped it with clear tape to seal it... used magic marker on it... black with silver.. looks kinda like a phaser from the Star Trek films (first 6)

Hmmm, many ideas for the "wii gun" concept to dodge the 25$ zapper, mine - I gutted a nerf gun (shotgun) and attached the trigger to the wiimote trigger VOILA, wii-shotty, worked great for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (the nunchuck sat in a hole in the gun - conveniently placed, the hole couldn't be replicated in any other gun/scenario)
25$ isnt that bad and you get a decent game to get use to the wii zapper
let me defend nintendo's wii zapper $20 and link's crossbow training but any way 3 stars
Awesome job, it looks great. And I agree with brettbarth, you should show pictures of you building it, that would be great. And in the first step, you repeated the link twice. Except the second time, it isn't a link.
hoho if it isnt gorillaz miko. and u should do what corkey123 did. otherwise it'd be hard to press the trigger : /

A nice idea and template, but you should spread out the instructions and show pictures of you building it so it is more understandable.
