Title: New blaster rifle build
Post by: Kall on May 02, 2020, 06:57 AM
Let's try this again.  I had to abandon my previous attempt at a custom build due to the base being made of very low quality plastic. I picked this base up at my local Goodwill a while back and am finally getting around to really working on it.

The idea for this build came from watching Rogue One and Solo. I like the idea of modular and adaptable weapons. The barrel, stock, and scope are removable and I will be making interchangeable parts for it in the future.

Like the mod ups, making it look like a serious weapon. Love to see the final paint on that baby.  Does it have a working trigger system, electronics?

I also got this exact base from a thrift shop a while ago, and am interested in seeing the final product!

Hey Kall, this looks great! How did you attach the scope? It looks like maybe a piece of sintra in there, then attached to the rifle somehow- JB Weld? I've got the same scope and I'm trying to figure out how to attach to a Westar 34, so any tips would be amazing.

The scope has a piece of pvc one the bottom that I ran the bolts through.  I inset a few magnets in the pvc and have magnets set into where it mounts to the rifle.

Ahhh, that makes sense! Off to find some good magnets.
