Sometimes its nice to just take a break from the replica world, and enter the (slightly less "vociferous") land of the model guns. In truth, I was actually intending to make this gun shoot, but after a while I could not come up with a cylinder solution. I could not figure out a way to make it shoot. So, I thought I'd just leave it a model, so that is what I did.

I first saw this gun in the April 2014 edition of Guns & Ammo magazine, and was immediately struck with how it looked. So, after breaking apart my PMR-30, I decided to build this. With a functioning hammer and trigger, comfortable handle, and short overall body (a little over 7 in.) it is really fun to play with (and in fact, my youngest bro almost won't let go of it).

If you want to finish it (make it shoot), be my guest.

Enjoy!

Well why it does look good, which I think everyone expects when you make something, it's not really my style... Which is weird because I prefer handguns and SMGs but this didn't really appeal to me. now if it had a small knex revolver mech in it and was hammer powered I would been super excited! But that doesn't exist yet.

Anyway my thoughts are: great looking gun! Not my style thought, but well built!

Thanks bro. Yeah, its just a model, nothing too special, but the hammer works great, so it was nice to have around for the young ones in my house. =D

True, my younger siblings like my pump action guns. There the easiest to understand next to the few slingshots I build.

Yep, They show a little interest in my hobby but not much. I did make some rubberband guns and we war with those every once in awhile.

Looks great but ugh that first picture :(

What is wrong with it? I think it looks boss...? I'm glad you like it. Sadly, I haven't got it to work yet (shoot), I'm still trying to figure out if I want to break it, or make it work.
