What is a good material for making prop guns? Answered

I've been getting into prop making and want to try my hands at it. I'm rather handy and time and detail don't bother me.


If you want to make it on the cheap, try staircase spindles, candle holders, wall hooks, and the like. Actually, that's what mine is made of. Hunt at estate sales and if there's a place like Construction Junction near where you live, try there too. A lot of imagination is required, though!

Wood body, pvc barrel, scrap fabric for gripps. Assorted “junk". Normal nonpunkers junk. I have seen my friends work area he saves just about anything he might use. Hope this helps
