Dollar Store Cap Gun in Brass by JohnsonArms Dollar Store Cap Gun in Brass by JohnsonArms
Here's a throwback gun that I did back in the early days of painting the guns. There's probably many examples further back in the gallery here on dA too :) Anyways, this the the current version I do for $25 and although it's a smaller gun, there's still a lot of attention to detail on this little cap gun.

This particular one is on its way to Germany. I'm hoping the new owner Georg will approve of the finish.

SWEET! We used this for airsoft, too! Hollow out the cylinder a little to accommodate a 6mm airsoft round, hollow the tip of the pistol giving the round an exit, and the pressure from the cap exploding forces the round out of the cylinder and down range toward the target. Hopefully ending in a hit! But nice work I love worn gold look with the silver cylinder. But now I have a question, did the cylinder look like that from the store (plastic coverings)? The one I used back in the day didn't... Or did you make these yourself?

I'd prefer a nicely worn steel finish but this one is very nice.
Say, where in Germany is that customer? If it's not too far I might go and have a look :P

All I can really say is Oberhausen. Of that's at all close I can ask him, but he's been mostly a silent buyer. No response from the final photo I sent him. Just let me know I'd it's feasible :)

Thank you! There are tutorials on neary everything, my style is still developing of course, but I don't do how-to's because of the time I've sank into doing what I do. I encourage people to pick up some supplies to give it a shot, then it's up to them to do the other 2000 hours of practice to get it right! :)

Quite so! If you look at most cool ideas though, you'll usually find a nutter behind it all :)
