Next project; Indy`s Smith and Wesson
 
Going to attempt a close-enough version of Indy`s S&W from Raiders by sanding away the logos, extending the barrel, making a new sight, etc...

I like it... ive got the same gas powered pistol you have but this is interesting..... veeerrrrrryyyyy interesting.

Raiders S&W almost finished
 
Not screen accurate of course, but a pretty decent representation I reckon. Ive weighted it to give it some heft, just need to add a metal loop for a lanyard to the base of the grip...

This is awesome - well done! Out of curiosity, what was the base gun you used?

Major West 06-01-2017 12:31 PM

It's a toy snub 38 I bought on amazon, pretty close to full scale. If you look at the previous pics you can see what it was like before I altered it.

Reall nice work, now you have a choice of pistols. Although I imagine this one will be a bit more Con friendly....

Great job. I poked around and found the gun, but they're not easy to come by. Looks really good though - I need to find something to use as a base to make a more con friendly gun.

Yeah definitely. The last thing you want is to be carted out of a con by burly security guards for waving your Webley around:gun:
Unless they were dressed like nazis.

Might be worth it just for the video... :D

I thought about making a resin cast of my Denix Webley but after seeing your conversion I'm trying my hand at converting an old .357 airsoft I had lying around. I took it apart and gutted it, glued the hammer and trigger and weighted it a bit so it has some heft but no moving parts except the cylinder, which I will probably also glue just to be safe.

Cut off the barrel and made a new one that will have an orange plug and redid the grips to be close enough. I'll post a few pics once it's done.

:gun:

Sounds good. Look forward to seeing it.

Hoplite318 06-12-2017 03:04 AM

Ok, pretty much got it finished. Still may tweak a few of the problem areas, but all in all I'm pretty happy with it.

New Holster
 
Made a holster for my Raiders 38. First made a paper pattern, then used that as the template and drew around it onto a piece of leather I bought from ebay (4mm thick cowhide, 12" x 12", just under 20 quid) and did the same for the belt loop and fastener. I next marked out the holes around the edge for the stitching using a small panel pin. It was then simply a matter of sewing it together with heavy thread. Once that was done I soaked the holster until thoroughly wet and put the gun (wrapped in plastic) in it and left it to dry. This caused the leather to shrink and conform to the shape of the revolver. Finally I sanded it and unevenly applied some dark brown shoe polish to age and darken it.


Major West 08-31-2017 05:21 PM

Very impressive, good work!!:gun: :hat:
