Steampunk Gun “The Dreameater” a modified Nerf Maverick

SOLD!! there is another model in the works :) Long ago i was inspired by the idea of a Steampunk gun, and started doodling ideas. I started out with a nice base for a new idea, The nerf gun Maverick. Then i added pipes, gears, gauges, brass, copper, filigree even insets for the guns trigger so it looked nice and steampunk. It had a lot of possibilities with its’ bigger than life almost anime style. So i added the idea of pressurized steam cartridges (which CO2 worked beautifully for) with air restrictors removal modification, full barrel extension mod and a slight tweek to the the normal barrels, i began on the cosmetic changes. etched filigree brass and copper paint and other accents such as the gauges and the gears it started looking great. i also aged it over all to add to the realism. all in all i think it turned out very steampunk in appearance and still keeping a functional look. Ranges: Stock darts: 26′-39′ Average 35′ Stephan’s: 27′-42′ Average 40′ The music in the background was actually composed by me. :) This beautiful steampunk gun would make a perfect accessory to any steampunk’s goggles and Victorian style clothing. It will be going up for sale in the future but if you are interested in owning this beauty make me an offer in the mean time, who knows you might be the proud owner of the Dreameater.
