Beautiful, just beautiful!  ;D
Someone stuck that in my face I wouldn't know whether to be terrified or full of admiration for the beauty!

Thus, beautifully terrified ?
I find my Colt Army 1860 the most aesthetic revolver ever made (that's why I have bought it), but stuck in my face, no doubt I would definitely prefer to be fairly terrified.  ;D

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

Well! Even sighting device installed.

And the sight is more or less the only component that fits roughly to its initial function... (even if it has been added purely as a kind of steampunk attribute).
No gears, no rivets (I have no patience for it), so a bit of optics.  :)

Dayum, that's pretty  :o
I wear goggles so you can't see when I'm staring at you.

I feel deeply and infinitely honored by the recognition from the steampunk community peers. May they have the same pleasure I had imagining, dreaming and creating the device.

From my small private gun store :

I have finally found on the web some images of the original toy gun (as I took no photo of mine, bought at a flea market - shame on me) : Larami Super Soaker CPS 3000, made in 1997 (not that easy to find, it's already a "vintage" one) :

It's quite impossible to be genuine. The steampunk world is definitely small. I have never seen this astonishing Tesla rifle before, for the first time ever a couple days ago : >> video <<.

The similarity of some design details is intriguing. And it had been created before the mine.

I cannot imagine how I missed this stunning and eclectic build!

your work is eye-candy, and you should consider opening a branch of the Weapons Shops of Isher.
