Movie prop? Terminator? Robocop?

Terminator!

Presently it has a working slide and trigger, and I'm trying to keep both...which has been giving me problems. I also plan on giving it a working laser sight.

Yeah boy!

I realize there are sources for airsoft versions...but they are rare and expensive. Plus half the "fun" is doing it myself.

Thanks!

I also wanted to put weights inside this so it would have a nice heft to it. I tried this on a previous pistol prop I was making from an old water gun. I drilled a hole in it and simply added in all sorts of bits of metal.

Two problems-A) bits would break loose inside and rattle around and B) I tried filling in the hole I drilled but I could never get it to look right again...there was always a "divot" present no matter how much bondo or epoxy putty I used.

But in this pistol, I don't know if it would matter. The only place I could add weight is in the handle, and that makes it feel UN-balanced.

I could, but it probably won't be enough to make a difference.

I've worked a little more on this project. I took the barrel extension (orange part) off because the slide mechanism wasn't working and I was going to graft it onto another of the same pistol.

But then I was handling it a few days ago and the slide mech. was working just fine! WTF?!

So, I glued it BACK on and applied Bondo around the join. This past weekend I worked on adding wires onto the laser pointer I bought at Petco. And wouldn't you know I saw almost the same thing for sale at Dollar Tree! Oh well, to late to take it back now. I don't know much about wiring, and these pointers are configured in a way that the casing helps conduct power to the laser diode part. I think there a way to make a battery pack with terminals that can then be hooked up to certain parts of the diode/board setup, but I don't think I'd have room for all that in the tube for the laser sight. As it is now, there's just a tiny bit or wiggle room around the pointer when it's inside the opening of the pipe...which makes me wonder how I'll get THAT to fit since I already have the button sodered (sp?) into place. I never have much look with soddering, so I don't really want to undo it.

Oh...almost forgot, since I had to take the barrel extension off, I was able to add some BB's and fishing weights to it to give it some heft. It's feeling MUCH better now.
