    Nov 30, 2007, 1:40 PM - How were these made? #1



    I'm just looking for how the end of the barrel was made . . . I really like this look! Does anyone have any ideas? I've pm'd the person who said they made them but I haven't received a response and that was a few days ago.

    Off the top of my head, try chess pieces...

    That might work.

    They look pretty cool.

    Those are cool! They look a little like Zam's blaster pistol...

    It could be the fluted end of a duck call. They look like that.

    My daughter has a small *annoying* kids toy trumpet that seems to show the same flare as the end sections. It's plastic measures about 7" long and pink!
    but with a saw and weathering could work? Might wanna try toy store isles?

    Thats not a bad guess at all Lopero. I'm thinking that just may be it. Would make sense as it's plastic.

    Yep. I would guess those are recorder ends.

    Of course chess pieces wouldn't work. Can you image a blaster with a horse's head for a barrell?

    Nintendo Zapper is all I can identify. The chess piece was a nice guess though.

    Ok thanks for the help! I've definitely already got two zappers in the mail . . . I'll start looking around at flute pieces and what not . . . see if I can't find something that will look good on it.

    Again, thanks. This is a great community.

    I know a lot of blasters with horse's ends at the back of the barrel, usually holding the handle...

    The ends look like the end of a Blunderpuss Flintlock.

    But the recorder ends and Trumpet pieces sound a lot better than what I just said!!

    lol it does look like a Bunderbuss Flintlock. I can use the knight chess peace for the hammer on the back.

    One of my guns arrived today but I've only found a couple trumpet mouthpieces that look anywhere near that design but they're not close enough and they're like $30. So, I'm moving on to the duck caller and then looking for a toy trumpet.

    I'll keep you guys posted if I actually find something that works really well

    Ok well . . . the duck calls are even more expensive but I've discovered that, as far as I can tell and many of you have suggested, it was most likely made from a recorder "flute".

    Well I think I may have found something... looked at the Toys R us site and found these... These may work and quite cheap too?

    That's exactly what I was talking about! That's a recorder! I'm headed out to pick up a couple right now . . . as well as some extra parts to customize the pistols.

    Ok well . . . I picked up a couple for a dollar like Ghostsoldier suggested . . . the only thing is, it's ALOT smaller than you would think. I'm gonna play with it since I have two and see if I can't figure something out
