Paintball flintlock
 
Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

Original build. Really bulky, but worked.

Cut from a solid piece of maple, done with hand tools. Yes this was done almost completely with files, chisels, and knives. I wanted to do this as realistic as possible (though using my CNC was tempting at times). I didn't like the darker stain I had on first and it needed to be slimmed down quite a bit to be comfortable anyways.

That is pretty damn neat...

Besides the goblin shells what else did you use? Was it pretty easy to get the balls up to a good velocity? I know the goblins had a problem.

Love it! Smoke and noise!

I would use that as my main, but then again I am a bit nuts.

A large chunk of maple, misc chunks of aluminum, and a lot of hand tools.

The barrel is just the right length for the goblin cartridges to keep it in the 280-295 range depending on what kind of paint I use. I have not had issues with the giblin cartridge.

I plan on inlaying thin brass into it later once the lock is finished. The lock will actually be the safety for the marker as it will push a panel between the firing pin and the goblin cartridge.

It is loud as heck in person. I need another 5pack of cartridges before I would be comfortable running it as my main though. I currently only have 6.

You're not the only one. ;)
Awesome work!

I have ideas... YOU'LL SEE. YOU'LL ALLLLLLLL SEEEEEEE!
*maniacal laughter*

Awesome idea though! So do you load the entire goblin shell down the barrel? how does this work?

You should make two of these, and then challenge someone to a good ol' fashioned gentleman's duel.

Did you do the etching on the barrel?
