Bolt Action Miniature Pistol--The Wolf--

About: If there is danger I am in, my only exception is heights, they are not for me. I like pyrotechnics and things that blow up or fire.

Here is a interesting woodworking/metalworking project, I had fun and enjoyed making it. To give credit the original idea came from nepheron, with the miniature firearm instructable. This pistol does fire and works very well.


-----WARNING-----

This does involve power tools, fire, and black powder, so be careful and use common sense.

Step 1: Planning

Before you start any project you should have a plan, this includes drawing out a plan for me. The thing your making may not work out how you plan but it is good to have a picture in your mind.

Step 2: Supplies

For this project you need;
brass tubing
wood
soldering iron or wood burner
dremel
drill
sand paper or sanding sponge
Jig saw

Step 3:

Draw the design out on a piece of wood and cut it out with a jigsaw. You also want a notch that the barrel will fit in.

Step 4:

For the bolt action I dont have clear pictures so I will draw the idea out. Although I encourage you to make your own idea.

Step 5:

For the barrel just cut brass tubing to your size.

Step 6:

Now jb weld the pieces together, and leave overnight.

Step 7:

Now the pistol is almost finished, add pieces of popsicle stick on the sides, for looks I used the soldering iron to burn designs in the wood.

Step 8:

Now the pistol is finished, I will be making a instructable soon for the cartridges.

    Nice build.

    I would only suggest steel tubing instead of brass for the chamber/barrel. The brass might not handle the cartridge pressures. Better safe than sorry!

    Thanks for the advice, this is my version 4.0 pistol the others were muzzle loader, the next one I make will be with steel tube. Although for the amount and type of powder it works well, I would not use smokeless powder with it though, on account of it burning so hotly.
