Well, if you make one project for one kid, it becomes one project for all the kids. This pistol is for my girlfriends son. It is made out of a solid piece of beech and has walnut grips. The shape is carved in. No pieces were added except the grips. This project took somewhere around 3 hours. The finish is “the good stuff” food safe finish. I’m glad I started these little projects. I’ve already had some inquiries and am possibly getting some commissions soon. Is 6 and 7 to young to be salespeople? LOL

I didn’t spend a great deal of time sanding and making this perfect because I already know it will be dropped, scratched, or lost. As long as he enjoys it while he has it, we’re both happy.

As always I welcome criticism positive or negative.

Looks great … with a slight modification to the sights, ie, back draft angle, it could shoot rubber bands

Great work. Looks almost too real. You know if you do sell them some tree hugger is gonna scream that you spray it fluorescent orange so the cops don’t mistake it for a real gun and shoot one of the hapless little kids. Screw them. We played with real looking guns as kids and we never got shot. I know today is different, but jeez, when you gonna draw the line with sensibility.

Mike, I was going to paint the front of the barrel orange or red, and still might. He loved the gun. Stuck it under his pillow last night and said he needs to keep it safe. His mom told him it’s not a good idea so he put it on his night stand. I’m glad he liked it.

Great project. I see a lot of Cops & Robbers games in its future. Hope that game is still played :)
