Ok guys, I found this old cheap airsoft shotgun. How can I make it more swarzy?

The first things that come to my mind are removing the pump grip and putting the magazine on the side.

That's what I thought. Also thought about removing the lower barrel and adding some strange muzzle break.
Btw, I've wearhered the blaster.

Nice idea :)
What you think of making it a double barrel blaster, you would have the space for 2 barrels over of each other.
I would remove the reddot and put a more star wars ish aiming unit on top.

Wow guys these are awesome ideas. Do you think it would be better to have a huge pistol blaster or a very short rifle blaster? In both case, how long should I keep the barrels?

Those shotguns make awesome heavy blaster pistols.  I have a similar one, but kept the mag where it was.  I'll have to find a pic of it (or take a new one... :rolleyes: ).


Edit: Here it is, with my other pistols for size comparison.

Maybe not suited for a rifle. I'd say too long.


Update:

Other tests.

It looks good enough I'd almost be jealous ;) I'd go for developing the second test, the double-barreled pistol-ish thing.

I've been eyeing that Beckett blaster myself on Etsy, I just seem to screw up finishing anything 3D printed. Great work!

The single-barreled version might serve you better in the long run.

It was the same for me, my first 3d print prop came out just horrible. I discovered it was just necessary to send more time on it and do everything very slowly and accurately.

interesting point, as I'm not experienced in trooping, may I ask you why?

From a holstering and drawing standpoint.  The size you have it at is close to what they would call a Mare's Leg, and a holster for that would almost require being either thigh or back mounted.

Or, and I just thought of this, use a smaller diameter section of pipe for the lower barrel.

I didn't think about that. I'll give a try with the second smaller barrel. Might also add visual interest. And of course I'll look for a cheap scope. Thanks Vod!
Hope two Heavy blasters aren't too much, but I'm quite a big guy.
