That looks pretty sweet! Could you make a tutorial for me as I'm going to need to make one for my ESB Fett!
I'm pretty lousy at tutorials....I essentially cut the top off the Zapper with my trusty dremel and fashioned a new one out of Sintra. The barrel is just aluminium tubing, and the "flash nozzel" is the casing off a UHF connector
That's very cool I was thinking of doing the same sort of thing with my old master system light gun ( which does'nt work anymore )
Thanks for the info!
Nice! Great work DarthBish. I saw a few of the old Zappers being sold at the mall a whlile back. I'll have to see if they're still there and pick one up. I especially like the Barrel tip you made, great idea with the UHF connector.
The old Nintendo zappers/light guns are not too bad a price in the second hand games shops now, I saw one for £6.99 yesterday
what is the uhf adapter thing? is there a part number for it?
Its a plastic plug that joins the aerial cable to the TV, any electrical shop will do them.soilman1 said:
your blaster looks really good. I have been wanting to do one also.
Dose the ROTJ Boba have one of those or is it just ESB?
I used one of my zappers for my sling gun, just a little cutting and some PVC and bam, there it was. I need some bondo and paint for it, and after Ill post a pic.
Just the ESB Bobashortimer52 said:
that is why there is on less pouch o the belt
AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH,,, good I didnt want to buy anything else.....thanks
ahhh.................like it's been said before, you can never have too many weapons:evil
thats a great sidearm! Nice work!
looks great, but is it screen acc? i mean i thought the side-arm was the sling gun from the pre-pro suits... just a question before i demolish...convert one of my Niny zappers...
No, pre-pro sling gun is different than the esb sidearm
Do it anyway, have fun with it and be creative .. Great funR_boba_fett said:
i started working on it this weekend, not going to change much though, ive redone the barrel, but i wont put a ...how you call it... "ring" around my trigger, my gloves are pretty rough and i want to eb able to draw it, especially cause i dont even have a main gun, the EE-3 carbine webley whatever else it was named gun...
i just bought a cheapo western holster that fitted the gun... should have seen teh poor clerks face when i went to fit my gun inside all teh different holsters...
anyways, ill bondi and sand an rough up teh slightly altered zapper an trust my paining skills (wich are i may say, FAR better then my scratch building skills...) to compensate most of my poor buildin skills.
ill post a pic when im finished
why does the 300th figure boba fett have the sling gun as a sidearm, i saw the pics, and you right, it isn't the sling gun in the movies...
and yes it is fun to do this
Definitly a sweet looking peice. But the grip on the actual sidearm has finger grooves, that would be very hard to do.
Has anyone a screen accurate holster?

dont think that has been done or ever will, after all, the only thing we have are those blurry shots of it, enough to see its a black holster...
ow heres myn, not great, but it was cheap *** and i had fun doin it.
Looks good man! Now lets see the front of that Fett!
ok i wanr you...but you asked for it...
im a little further now, weatehred jumpsuit, knees (not that you cna sse heere i dotn have em yet) tk-409 neckseal and last but not least: a true build-up an hevaily edited rufkintoy esb flamethrower (plus new paintjob on gauntlet keypad an missile) ow and a chest light display, ala tk-409 bikelight way...
incase ur wonderin, forget the ****** blaster, i need a new one, also want to redo my entire armor set (made of cheapo plexiglas) and the helmet is a pre-tdh-discoverd rubies jango helmet, painted by me from pics of starwarshelmets.com...like i said, didnt know of tdh when i did that, so my FG helmet wich i hope to purchase around the summer will be better...alot better.
the band pic shows teh overall look of the costume... never mind teh creepy dork on the right... that guitar was also painted by me incase ur wonderin...

Costume is looking good ... ooh.. what make is that bass I like it
no idea, but it aint a side arm, think ive hijacked this thread to much allready, ill pm you.
How much do of the top of the gun do you cut off? Do you have any project pictures? Im about to buy a lot of six of those zappers, two I will actual keep for my NES, four will be converted. I'm not going for screen accurate, so I'll probably have two of them on my costume and then just some extras for goofing around with or whatever other reason. Anyway, just wondering how much of the top of the gun you remove. Is it the whole thing or just the barrel or what?
info bout my thingy, though the one above is infintly better.
OK, thanks! Now that I have the general idea, I can probably just get creative. That second pic should be enough for me to get started on it.
Poor nintendo zap guns... a moment of silence for them please... ... ok they are being recycled into good uses.. just please buy a "new" one and use the worst condition or broken guns... collectors items and all. (The original color scheme is hard to find and worth money believe it or not)
what?? they are? I got another workin one upstairs, there was this junk market last weekend where people sell there junk... so toys, furniture etc etc... I found my own NES there like a year ago, bought one for 20 euros, didnt work BUT, it had 2 workin controllers and a zapper + the original box and booklets etc etc + about 10 games... even the foam... so I went back to the junk sell a little depressed for my NES not workin (the cable that attaches the screen an NES was also missing , used teh one from my SNES, but showed that the NES itself was broken...just kept blinking from white to black screen, no matter what you did)
then there was another one, without box, and few more games and again 2 controllers, all cables, AND a zapper...5 euros all together... bought it...worked perfectly
So I used one of them zappers for my sidearm... now this year, I must have come across 8 of these zappers all sold by different people, most people had 2 of em.. now I dont know if they all worked, but the most expensive 1 was 2,50 euros..
In A'dam there is this gaming shop, specialised in old consoles, like old sega's, atari's an old NES, SNES & N64, where they also sell these zappers, for about 6.50 euros... not that expensive...
That's essentially what I did.
The finger/trigger guard was taken from an "el cheapo" gas lighter...(you know, the ones that spark when you pull the trigger to light the gas)
new pic with the silver thingy screwed in..
i went climbing this week... thought id recognized an item... the barrel tip on the esb side-arm, is it possible to eb the sam as a carabiner safety ring??
I discovered a gun on ebay a bit ago that reminded me of something, And I just realized it was the gun used in ESB for fett's pistol, lemmie go find it.
Here it is, aparently it's called a daisy repeater pistol
well it looks like it, but im not 100 % convinced just yet...
I can't say it think it looks anything like it.
well I was a bit reluctant to say that but...Jango_Fett_Jr said:
well the thing under the barrel looks a bit like the MLC one... but then again, who can tell us that teh MLC is 100% accurate, its a **** fine pistol, but the real deal has never been seen aside from the blurry pics an movie stills, an always in its holster...
true, but almost all of the old SW guns were just real guns that they managed to get from surplus stores, which helped them evade the wierd 50's lasers.
I mean, The Dl-44 is a mauser + scope and wierd muzzle. The De-10 is a revolver. The ee3 is a flaregun and a stock. the e-11 carbine is actually a fully auto ukranian weapon. the heavy repeater is also a wierd gun (dont rmeember name or where it from, but It's in a big book o' guns i've got.) and it has a wierd muzzle added on. The republic blaster is a semi-auto carbine from (i think) austria.
I've just never seen a gun that even looks remotly similar to the ESB gun or the daisy, or the duck hunt lightgun. Chances are that he ESB gun is a daisy (prolly modded) and the duck hunt gun was probably modeled after it, just as the guncon 3 is after a Deagle, but to anyone who's held a deagle and shot one, the guncon 3 is VASTY different from a real deagle. I mean, the trigger assembly is differnt on the duck-hunt gun, but, The pistol style isn't a common one, also, the gun proportions are slightly off in barel length to grip length, So I think it was probably front heavy.
I thought the E-11 was a gun called a "sterling" and the big heavy repeater is to as far as I know called a "Lewis" gunNachturnus said:
Anyone seen this? Mystery Gun Hmmmm.... the plot thicks...
Yeah, i just found out that they are original english guns that the uekranians and other people ripped off of the english.
Here's mine. Still need to add the trigger guard.
this a great Idea darth I have also done something similar. I was in my grandparents shed and found and old nintendo, and at that time I was searching for a pre-pro blaster I had the vision. and converted the nintendo duck killer to the pre pro blaster I will post pictures soon.
Those seem to be the two guns that people get confused about.
It doesn't say the names of them though.
Hmm almost 2 years of inactivity. The first blaster you pictured is the sidearm from ESB, not sure that we are aware of what it was called since it was rarely seen in the film. The second is the Pre-Pro weapon.
here are mine, for a different,non-mando bounty hunter.
filled the holes and added flute ends, reminiscent of Zam Wesell's KYD-21 Blaster
Is that a lady Shick razor as the handle? Either way, ingenius!
DANG!!!!!!!! thats cool.
(looks great) =0
thats pretty awesome to make a good gun out of a NES Zapper. I can go to this store where i live and buy like 20... There are cheap and they have alot, So i might be making some.
Good job my gun is not fininshed so I might make it like yours.
Being a NES lover this tread really hurts
But those are some Shiny blasters inndeed nice work.
