Had to get this thing today. I will be cutting down the barrels, cutting down the stock and adding some bits and a new paint job. The rest is perfect. It even ejects it's own shells when cracked. if you aren't paying attention the will hit you in the face. They pop out that hard and fast.

Now I am sad.  There are no dollar general stores anywhere near me.

Really? I was under the impression that they'd infiltrated most of the United States. I believe there are at least five within a 15 minute drive from my home... Perhaps it's a Southern thing?

Nevertheless, I'm sure you could find a similar product at a different location, the stores vary by name but it's usually a lot of the same products.

True.  I have a lovely toy and hobby store where I recently got a metal toy pistol to mod into a repeating pistol, like one one of the other threads.

I really like that red one, but the one above still looks very plastic to me.

Damn, that is a much nicer looking starting point shotgun for a project that the one I'm starting from!  Yours already has hammers and a decent looking trigger guard! Cheesy

Good luck with it :-)

Yeah its a little too red, I knocked the colour back on a flintlock using some car light tinting spray paint



The method for doing woodgrain on plastic came from this website:

Hope that helps

Perhaps a few, very few, it was primarily a shock and awe campaign on his part.
Those dollar store flinties were most decidedly not up to the challenge.
I long for the day when I have a full woodshop at my disposal again.

I have seen those very shotguns at Big Lots and Roses.  I picked up one of the pump actions, and it is by far the most realistic functioning toy gun I've ever had my hands on.  The action and shell loading (although with a tendency to jam) works almost identical to my real one.  I was intending on making it part of a display that said "in case of zombies break glass" as I'd seen someone else do with a pistol, but now that I'm going with a more steampunk decorating style in my home, I'm not really sure what to use it for.

This makes me wish I'd bought the break action one instead though.

I have cut the butt of my gun off at the curve to give it a smooth look. I am also painting and replacing the scrolled plates on the sides.

Guyver, What are you using to fill in the shape of the handle? I used epoxy putty, is there something you prefer?

I just cut a chunk of plastic and glued it over the hole that was left. Sanded it down and added a cut wood look to it. I will try to get a pic of it up soon. THe painting is done but I need to seal it and add some highlight work to it.
