Made this from a scroll saw pattern from Mr. Lloyd Watson on Facebook, didn’t want to give to the grandkids because I don’t want to see them killed over a toy gun, it’s happened before.. oh the hammer and trigger don’t work but the cyclinder turns and is removable with the pin dowel the barrel is poplar as well as the bullets, the handles are Cypress..

My daughter framed a bunch of old toy guns in shadow boxes and hung them in my grandson’s room. They were also too realistic to play with now days, but the shadow boxes display them and keep them out of his hands.

Good thing it is made of wood or “you’ll shoot your eye out”

Nice work!

+1 don’t let kids have it.

FWIW – Toy guns are required by law to have blaze orange solid plug in end of gun to show any one staring down the barrel it’s a fake. If the barrel has open end, barrel end needs a band and plug down inside painted same blaze orange.

Government CFR on toy safety are enormously complex to read and digest. Here is short summary by the Toy Association from WWW:

Not suggesting you ruin your lovely artwork with blaze orange paint, unless maybe it might be accessible by kids?

That’s really excellent. I have a real one, family heirloom. My great, great grandfather was a civil engineer who built railroads in the west, and it’s stayed in the family. Other than the color, this is spot-on.
