Steampunk Queen Anne Pistol by ShadowArcher80 Steampunk Queen Anne Pistol by ShadowArcher80
Another gun in the steampunk vein, this one inspired by the slim, sleek Queen Anne pistols from the golden age of piracy.

The whole thing started around the desire to use the main gearbox from a $5 vintage desk clock as the firing mechanism of a gun.

A few handles were scrapped for not looking "quite right" until one just presented itself through an accidental jigsaw cut and a slimmer than drawn design happened to fit just right.

The barrel was turned from a wooden dowel, with a drill and a bolt (as I don't have access to a lathe) then weathered with black and metalizer paint, using the crumpled plastic bag dabbing method.

The push-button trigger is inspired by typewriter keys, and fashioned from an old aircraft rivet.

Hardware, knick knacks and various odds and ends courtesy of Amarillo Hobby House in Amarillo Texas.

I should add, this "More like this" thing shows almost nothing exept your own other photos - a fine sign of the uniquity of your crafts. But among the items that do come out, there is my knife :) of which I am really proud.

All three of your guns, including the duelling pistol, are highly interesting, I must say. Rarely you will find this quality in a prop item, too few people are ready to put some sweat in what they do. Good work, sir!

I must say, I love how both guns incorporate the 'wing' theme well and the clockwork looks functional rather then being placed randomly, how did you manage to get the wood so smooth with a jigsaw?
