I don't know how many of you have access to a 3D Printer but Someone has moddeled a Colt Walker and posted the model up on thingverse.

This should help everyone to build custom steam powered weapons that fit somewhat historically.
I am using it as a base for my own Navy 1851 and Æther pistol.

Someone should create files for some of the more idiosyncratic firearms of that era; pepperbox pistols, Apache guns, etc.

Unfortunatly Copyright and various firearm laws put hinderance to that but I do believe there is a colt 1911 model around.
Mind you, if you have the graphics talent,anyone could pop out one.

But then who says we have to 3D print real existing guns?

 Meanwhile a friend just sent me this Borderlands gun he printed to assemble and paint. He printed it out in ten separate pieces with pins to hold them securely.

Possibly but with several company's still producing models, its possible that someone could start fighting it.

It's interesting looking (personal opinion warning) Just not old enough looking.
Just done a part count and there is something like 44 parts. I have just started on the third part and already into 5 hours of printing!

Well it's from the game Borderlands, a futuristic world with a grungy, old west feel. I just wanted to show the folks out there the sort of thing that was possible with 3D printing.


It does look better in black primer though.

Possibly an unintended consequence of 3d printing meets SP makership, but it seems this chap may have RL weaponised the modded-Nerfpistol.

All it needs is a few adheso-cogs [tm] and a quick shot of brass spraypaint to blend in at any Con.

Something i think would be great to have 3d printed would be gun trigger sets. Have a trigger mechanism that can be attached to gun props for those that don't have metal crafting skills. I've thought about building the trigger out of sanded wood before for roughly the same idea. Plastic would be less likely to break though

Here are a lot of rubber band gun designs that can be adapted fairly quick for different effects or heavier rounds.
Smoke, flash paper, noise, rubber bands/ nerf darts, and such.

This trigger design is on my project list,
the simplicity of design and materials should permit for quite a bit of modification.
I'm going to use surgical tubing bands for a local skirmish.
Paintball type coverage to provent injury.

3D models of a Mauser C96 (often called "Broomhandle" or a "Box Cannon") and of a Webley MkIV are on my wishlist. The C96 was Winston Churchill's gun during the Boer War, and the Webley makes frequent appearances in Doctor who and Torchwood.
