Mal's Gun Steampunk

Having made a couple of replicas of Malcolm Reynolds gun from Firefox recently I thought I'd make another one, only this time with a steampunk feel to it. So I used the basic shape of the Firefly pistol but added two small gas cylinders on each side complete with pipework. As much as I love the octagonal barrel of Mal's gun it's quite time consuming to make and I wanted this one to have a different look so I used 15mm plastic tube with a copper plumbing fitting on the end of the barrel. I also used a plumbers brass nut for the joint between the barrel and the gun body.

The gun was constructed from MDF as usual with hardwood grips. It was finished with acrylic paints all hand painted. I'm very pleased with it
