If you do, will you buy a set of my wood grips first? :)

Haha, we certainly can't be losing browncoats to stupid mistakes! And most of the testing will be before modification, it would really suck to build It and it blow up. Firing underwater like that would actually be a pretty good test though, as the incompressibility of the water would more efficiently transfer the energy to the brass shell.

And I think I will buy a set of your grips. Not for this project though, I'm currently stripping down my plated mal for my first go of model painting. I broke one of the grips getting It off...

Although I was joking about the grips, you're welcome to sign up.

My Model 47 walnut grips can't be a worse fit than the QMx resin ones, right?

:)

Jump on the list, the more the merrier!

i've seen videos of other prop gun conversions firing before (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cOeqD80gzY), so that was the level of gunsmithing/craftsmanship i was thinking of when i asked about a conversion kit earlier, in case people were thinking i was going to get out the sheet metal and hot glue and about to slap them onto a working gun or something... i value my limbs and digits, and i wholeheartedly believe in letting professionals do the dangerous work. :D i've seen conversion kits for firearms sold online, and they all say that they are to be installed by a gunsmith (like changing components of an old mosin nagant rifle to be more modern).

sorry for the delayed reply - i was offline all weekend. offline and NOT blowing my hand off, mind you.

Two questions.

Are we absolutely sure on the Taurus used for Mal's pistol????

I'm thinking of finding a beat up one, cheap one, whatever and sticking it inside. No,.. not to make it shoot for real, but for a totally realistic trigger and hammer action. I would remove the cylinder or firing pin, etc.

Anyone done it??

This will be put in a Sidkit Mal Serenity Pistol.
