I'm doing a steampunk costume this year for Halloween and got too excited to wait to build my prop pistol. What are you're thoughts? Any opinion is welcome, criticism, tips, even if you don't like it, this is my first build and am looking for any tips from others who have done this type of work before.

If it takes more than one shot... You weren't using a Jakobs!

My problem with steam punk: Gears for no ******* reason/

Really? putting a bunch of gears and cogs on to stuff is now considered steampunk?

Sorry.. All I can see is the Nerf Maverick.
This is a weak Steampunk mod.
Just because you paint it like bronze, and copper, and throw random cogs over it doesn't make it Steampunk.
**** has to be close to that, yes, but it has to have a seemingly understandable functionality to it.. not just random gears and cogs. You know.. it has to LOOK like it does something.

Plus the random bayonet blade is really distracting and almost off putting from the Steampunk theme, especially with how rounded and ragged it looks. It looks like a old iron medieval dagger.

I've never made any steampunk stuff or any of that; but I think a lot of the gears are unnecessary which seems to be a mistake a lot of steam punk people make.

It's about steam power and the whole rustic look; the gears should only apply when it involves a clock/gear-work type device.
All in all it is really awesome though; but me personally, I suggest gears only where they look useful.

If it took more than one shot, you probably weren't using a Jakobs!

I don't like steampunk.
I don't see what's appealing about it.

it's supposed to envision a victorian time where modern technology is available by means of gears and gyros as opposed to motherboards and electrical wires
