Step 1: Tools and Supplies
You will need:
A Bullet casing. (Doesn't really matter how big but I used a 7mm)
A .22 cal empty pellet
A pen with a pointed casing
Copper Nail Polish
Brasso. (Or other metal polish)
Hot glue gun
Hand pruners or something similar
Step 2: Polish the Casing
If your bullet casing is a bit dirty then you might want to polish it up. I used brasso but any metal polish will do.
Step 3: The Pen Casing
You need a pen that has got a pointed casing like in the picture (I don't know what type of pen it was).
Take the pen apart and get the ink tube and the top casing part.
Mark the pen casing bit 19mm from the top and use some sand paper to file down to the mark.
Step 4: The Ink Tube
I had to cut the ink tube around 69mm from the top for the 7mm shell, but as long as the ink tube sticks 19mm out of the shell it will be okay
Step 5: Glueing the Pen Casing
Get your .22 caliber pellet and cut the back off using hand pruners or something similar. Bend the top of the pellet slightly so that it doesn't fall to the bottom.
Put the pellet over the ink tube.
Hot glue the tube and the pellet in place (make sure to keep the ink tube standing in the middle) and let it dry.
Then add more glue and quickly add the pen casing.
Step 6: Sand the Pen Casing
With the pen casing glued in place, sand the pen casing till flush with the bullet shell (try not to scratch the shell with the sand paper).
Step 7: Paint the Pen
For painting, I used copper nail polish which turned out real nice.
I also used clear nail polish over it but you don't have to do this.
