This is one of my hubby's hobbies; steampunking toy guns gets seriously in my way sometimes though. The gun looks great, but I agree it looks better without the extension pieces for a costume.

So you fellow Twi'lek's say i shouldn't use the barrel extension?

Darth Kyttee: It did cost me £42 which translates into $67

I am looking at getting a steampunk painted maverick to use as a pistol

Yeah it looks more star warsie if that makes sense. $67 is pretty good for a shot i think mine cost me 60 but that was on special usually around 80 to $100 (if you haven't noticed nothing in Aus is cheap ever well occasionally until we hit a $1.10 XD)

If your going to get a maverick Bacura can i make a suggestion sand everything back 1st. This is if your doing it your self, also sand the nerf logos off it looks terrible in photos XD.

But yes sand everything back and put a primer on 1st because what ever kind of paint they use, other paint usually just slides right off. You get air bubbles and not a very nice even coat of paint :)

I discovered that i can remove the stock of the blaster so i did it on the one i use to shoot my brothers and decided to see what people think if i should remove the stock for my Twi'lek blaster

I think it depends on what message you want the gun to convey besides, "This is my boom-stick". A classic pistol says "I use attacks of opportunity" and a full-auto machine pistol (or mini-cannon, or turret rig) says, "I spray and pray with little concern as to collateral damage". A rifle says, "I hunt - and not just animals". A sniper rifle says, "I'm a professional and I play well with others".

Any firearm with a stock says that the user plans his shots and is not likely to shoot unless necessary, though there are exceptions like the Winchester Mare's Leg (think Steve McQueen's gun in "Wanted: Dead or Alive" or Zoe's gun in "Firefly") where the user wants the most portable firepower necessary and is willing to take the shoulder damage to access max kill power.

The weapon in the photo above looks exceptionally unwieldy without a stock. What is the scale of it to the human body? Would you use a strap (like a guitar strap) and hold it low like a mini-cannon if you don't use the stock?

It measures 44.5cm from mussel to the end of the blaster and 20 cm from top of blaster to the end of the grip.

I think i would use it aiming from the shoulder. i thought removing the stock would make it easier to get out in a hurry but the way i would hold it give me the precision shots that i would need.
