BB or Airsoft replica for mounting


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to make a military plaque for a colleague who is leaving after 30 years of service as an Armourer. My plan is to use a plastic replica of a Browning 9mm or Glock pistol and mounting it on a oiled oak mount  with brass insignia and 9mm brass case.

If anyone has a broken or damaged replica or airsoft equivalent I would be most grateful and happy to pay a small fee and cover P&P. 

Cheers,

See if a founder can use a plastic pistol to make a mould in casting sand and cast the thing in brass?

That sounds like a good idea, getting hold of that much brass these days is not easy. I plan to use the plastic and brush paint it with model paint to give it a worn metal effect. I plan to use a dremel to cut it into two.

Have a ring around some indoor shooting ranges. .22LR brass will be available as scrap as will Berdan primed centrefire scrap. In one sense it'd be quite apt to have a gun cast from scrap cartridge brass.

I dont know what area of the country you are John, as your profile does not say, but if you are near me, I have a blank firer Browning Hi-power, that you could take a mould from, and I could give you enough brass cases to finish the job.
