    I wouldn't use a toy cap gun, simply because the scale of those things are a bit small. Unless you have tiny hands.

    When I made my rifle from scratch, I used a Crossman .357-style BB gun from Wal-Mart. I don't remember the price, but at least it was a full-size pistol to start with.

    I found this one at a dollar store (it came in a two-pack)
    The bottom half is the real deal ( for reference. )
    pretty close, especially for 50 cents.

    The normal boba rifle has a more of a magnum type handle to it. Would a desert eagle handle look cool on that type of a rifle?

    usin wizard of lights templates I came to this with plexi-glas sheets and a lot of bondo...

    stock is piece of wood screwed in an aluminium grip attached with screws to the main plexi-glas gun. grip detail is also wood. barrel indeed is pvc piping... its really not that difficult, an I was done with bout 10 euros materials... plexi-glas, bondo, kit, pvc pipes etc...

    an if i can do it, anyone can!!!
