    nooooo! It's a video!

    Nice vid on modding! Since you're a prop guy, just a quick note of history:

    The design of your "futuristic BB Gun" is that of RoboCop's Auto-9 machine pistol, which was heavily modified from its original base gun of a Beretta m93R pistol- your toy being a smaller (perhaps half?) scale replica in comparison to the original prop. The Auto-9 makes occasional appearances in other movies like Sin City, and has become a very popular design for airsoft pistols.

    Cheers, and keep up the good work!

    But it's cheaper than making them from scratch? I'll edit my description anyway :D

    No, you're very correct. Making them from scratch, would not look that great, would be time-consuming, and would be too expensive. I've actually found a very good cheap gun. It's the buzz bee toys ruff stuff pistol.
