    Good Airsoft guns for blaster conversions

    hey guys, these are a few airsoft bb pistols that I found. It seems that they would make good templates for modification into blaster style Star Wars guns.....they are on my computer so they are attatched. Let me know what you guys think....

    if anyone cares, the second and third guns are from a website called UNcompany.com, and are found by clicking "pistols" then "Kokusai". They are about 100 dollars. The others are from ShortyUSA.com, under the heading "gas guns". They are all roughly 100-150 dollars.

    I'd try looking for 'em on Ebay; I found the gun from the first picture on Ebay for about 15$. And it does seem to have potential for Fett-purposes..

    Well, the two last pictures are of the Mauser C96, and I believe that is actually what Han Solo carries - though slightly modified. So for that, you've made an excellent finding

    yeah its the mauser c96 and the "rifle" variant of it.....

    there are also a couple of nerf guns with a little sanding (to get rid of the big NERF word) and some paint make great custom weapons

    This reminds me when I asked advice on my ROTJ blaster's weathering... I did mine around working airsoft pistol, and got a little heat from members here about the 'working weapon that shoots' part. If you build one with these, be extra careful when handling them...

    the third one down looks like it could be a good base for an EP1 assention gun.

    The top one is some sort of rifle variation of the Ruger Mk1 (the gun that Greedo carries).
    The last two are M712 Mausers - similar to the standard 1896 broomhandles used in the original trilogy. There was an M712 in Episode I.

    I've been wanting to try and adapt the below air pistol into my version of a Verpine sniper rifle-without hacking it up, although I'm sure that's a stretch...Any thoughts on what (if anything) it could be made into?

    i found while some air soft guns look great, you can tell when they used to be airsoft guns

    but some of those look very interesting!

    I think that would be a great place to start for an ESB sidearm.

    Hey, I remember those bb guns. I had one, when I was younger. It would indeed make a good base for an ESB sidearm

    I had one too. I took it apart to see how it worked and it never got put back together again. I think my mom threw it away.

    Re: Good Airsoft guns for blaster conversions

    seen this one awhile back and thought it would be a good gun for a conversion to an EE3 or one very similar to it
