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 )

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.

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.

:D 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 :)
