Classic bang gun from the old batman show Answered

hello, im making a costume for Halloween and ive been trying to build the classic bang gun,its the gun with the red flag that pops out and it says bang.i cant wrap my mind around how to make it,either through it pops out of the gun or that it slides from the side of the pipe,i dont know im not a hands on kinda guy.can any one please help me. thank you Jager


ok why not do this
get a spring loaded 9mm airsoft glock theres your spring loaded gun right there

open it up and in the gun barrel and take a look all you would need to do is set the rolled up flag and its pole in it and a stopper to keep it from flying out
i think a normal disposable pen would be the right size

but i am just spit balling it

but seeing as its way pass halloween i think i may be too late :P

if you want it to be easier to build, you can just put a bang flag inside a barrel, and spring load it... MUCH easier...

Actually, it's not. If you saw how simple the original is then you'd see.

I don't see how it can be much simpler than the original tbh, all it is is a tube cut in half that opens out.

yeah i like the ones that actually shoot out the flag i mean they roll out of the barrel, someone should of just copied the shoot out of the barrel idea verbatim

You pull the trigger down and it actually pulls down an arm on the outside of the gun. This frees the spring-loaded barrel to pivot open and allow the flag to unroll and drops down. The barrel is actually two half cylinders connected at the end on a hinge and, as mentioned, is spring loaded. The flag has two small pieces of metal rod sewn in so that it has weight to drop down, but it can also can fold in half like the barrel. There isn't much to it.

Yeah, I have one, they're just that simple. I can do some pictures if you want.
