Title: Tokrim weapons WIP
Post by: Tokrim on Aug 03, 2015, 04:22 PM
Hey guys.
I am part way through my armour build now and need to look at armaments. I have a growing collection of greeblies and computer spares that could be used to dress up my props but I do not have a good base to start from for pistols.

Shy of custom making a grip and chassis I was considering purchasing a couple of BB guns and stripping out the mechanisms.
For that I found the following store and a couple of interesting finds within...

Firstly could the slide of this gun be replaced and a more swarzy scope added?

Secondly they have dl44 mausers that could easily be modded.

On top of that I have a long term goal of modding a dyson vacuum cleaner handle into part of a rifle/carbine.

Thoughts??

Go with the vacuum idea! It will be super unique.

Yes, the vacuum-rifle sounds like a great idea. :D

I should do something like that, run with the joke about my app pics having an upright in-frame...

Above is the Vacuum cleaner hadle I was considering using. Fellow mercs in the Vok Chi have said this could look epic.

Any ideas for what you will add to it?

Ideally I would like to add some boxing along the pipe towards the handle but leave some of the pipe and the tip alone. Need to shape a stock for the left hand side area and of course scopes and greebs.

There is also a flappy bit in front of what will become the grip that needs to come off.

To save double posting...

I am also considering making a stun pistol and stun baton (for when you have to get that bounty alive).

Ok so whilst I wait for payday to make my next round of purchases (foamex and the spare dyson handle). I have bought a pair of ps move gun controllers to use as a base for my pistols. 5.95 for the pair with free delivery, good old eBay. I will post up pictures like the vacuurifle once they arrive on Tuesday.

Word of warning that Double Eagle Mauser, is not full size, its kinda small.  I cant get a gloved finger all the way into mine.

More progress on the vac rifle, that concept looks pretty good

Here is the pistol rough mock up, PVC Pipe to replace the card tube and then obviously sanding down and spraying. Trigger mechanism would be good to retain so as to allow for electronics later not that it fires anything anyway (ps3 move gun controller).

Nice! Are you going to add any greebs?
Title: Re: Tokrim weapons WIP
Post by: Tokrim on Aug 17, 2015, 05:11 PM
I need to get some greebs so need to go looking through the forum for some examples. I have some plastic bits that came with some of the kitchen appliances that would make for good scope mounts. I have some other Junk Plastic parts that could be used and just need some other ideas really.

I don't think this counts as a double post but whilst working on the Blasters and Rifle I will also be adding 2 CQ weapons from SWG. The undeniable Stun Baton and a Vibro Knuckler as used by TKA's.

Anyone have any templates for the TK Style Vibro Knuckler?

Looks awesome. How do you plan to attach it to your kit?
Title: Re: Tokrim weapons WIP
Post by: Tokrim on Aug 27, 2015, 05:02 PM
Potentially magnets or some kind of holster would be the best methods. Stun baton would have a belt loop fitting and hang loose from that.
