Hi All,

I usually stick to clocks, but on my search for interesting things to make into clocks - I came accross an old 'Pyrene' Fire Extingusher. By their very design they look delightfully SP but once I had cut one open, the pumping mechanism inside looks ideal to make into a Gun and it is all Brass and Copper, with I think a little Lead either end.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

These Extinuishers are pretty comon on eBay and are not a great deal of Money either. If anyone wants the insides out of this one for the cost of the postage, then just PM me.

Cheers,
Paul

The end fittings might be made of zinc.
