Simple, cheap and fun,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smiffy's Steampunk Gun - Gold (Apparel)
I bought this for my seven year old son. I made a custom Steampunk gun for him, but it's a bit heavy for him to hold one-handed and also he likes having it hanging on the wall so he can show it off to his friends, so I was looking for a cheap alternative for every day play usage and I have to say I'm very happy with this.
It's a little small in the hands of an adult but perfect for him. The paint scheme on it isn't fabulous but more than adequate and it looks very good (as a model maker I tend to be overly fussy about paint finishes). It's also very light so he can stick it in the waistband of his trousers without dragging them down :-)
Interestingly, it has a battery compartment (with no contacts in it) and part of the barrel rotates, which leads me to believe there is another version of this gun that is motorised. I'm tempted to rig it with lights and a motor just for fun.
On the whole, I'm very pleased with this and my son loves it. If you're looking for a costume weapon for a Steampunk or sci-fi outfit, or you want a cheap but nice looking toy space gun for your children, you won't do much better than this, especially for the price.
