It has been a couple of years since I made any guns.  Thought I would have another go at it.  Started a set of dueling pistols.  They are similar to another set of dueling pistols I did awhile back.  These will be a little larger. The pistols are mostly done.  The box is constructed, but needs hinges and a lock and decoration. 


Possible decor for the box lid.


Pistols on lid.


Pistols inside the box.

The best part of these and most steampunk weapons is that the only way they can hurt someone is if you drop them on your toe.

Or use them as a club. Roll Eyes

Nice, are you lining the box? Fine mesh to cradle the guns?

They remind me of the old Scottish pistols with the stock being closer to the line of the barrel than pistols from other countries and all metal construction, English and European dueling pistols tended to have a wooden stock like a saw handle.
That makes them 'a bit different' to the majority of steampunk  guns and an ideal weapon for any Kilt wearing steampunk.

Thanks!

The box will have foam and a cloth lining.  Worked on the hinges this morning.  More to be done.

I find the cloth lining in a box like that is the hardest part of the job

Cutting the foam to fit seems to take me the most time.  Since the last time I tried, I have learned about using a hot tip on a soldering iron.  Going to give that a try this time.

The box just before being sprayed.  Note the gauge gives a reading in paces for maximum dueling affect.  The foam is next.

Finally fit the foam and cloth in the box.  Hope to take some better pictures soon.  The first one shows the foam before covering in cloth.  I cut the foam using a flat tip on a gun style soldering iron.  Works pretty well.

Fantastic.  I'd trade you a Van de Graff generator if I lived in the same continent as you do!  Beautiful work Mate.
