Step 1: What you'll need

Step 2: The templet

Picture of the templet
you will want to go online and print of a side pic of the magnum, or other gun of choice.
you will the want o cut it out
i would print more than one of the pic

Step 3: Foam base

now you will want to go and trace out the templet on to your foam four times (if you do a gu like the magnum you dont want to trace the part where the the clip sticks out yet)
after that you can start to cut out the shapes. cut out the peices on the inside of the gun first
you have to be careful because the foam is thin and will bend and breack if you are not careful

Step 4: The clip

Picture of the clip
to make a clip take your to inner layer and trace out the shape and size of the clip
then cut it out and sand the sides alittle so it will slide easyer
be careful this will make the gun tin where the clip is taken from and will bend if not careful

Step 5: Glueing it all together

its time to fire up the glue gun
prelay out the order that they go on
start to glue them on layer by layer
another option is to use white glue but it takes longer
dont forget to glue the clip 

Step 6: Sanding

you will want to sand all of the edges down so they are all even
dont sand to much or it will ruin the gun

This looks nice! If I end up doing this, the only thing I'm probably going to do is add a bit more detail. Nice work, man!
