Steampunk Boltcaster by Direrain Steampunk Boltcaster by Direrain
Ill leave it up to you decide whether this truly is steampunk or not, to me it is. I always like the more refined, Victorian-Noble style of steampunk compared to the gritty Lower-Industrial style. This is the kind of weapon you would find in the possession of a noble class assassin.

Pulling the trigger sets of the steam-activated firing pin. The pin fires forward, striking the blasting cap on the back of the bolt, propelling the bolt down the hyper-rifled barrel. Simple as pie. Bolts are stored in a belt-clip holster with magnetized sides to prevent the bolts from rattling around.

Unfortunately the use of blasting caps can leave residue in the barrel, so an underbarrel cleaning rod has been provided in the style of many colonial period muskets.

I do have to credit a gentleman on Flickr known only as Hstrang for the hose idea.

Made in PMG .7

Just saw this again and I just gotta let you know that this is STILL one of my absolute favorite PMG deviations on this site.

It's the premier model on my page, the one I get the most hits for. Surprising too, this was way back when I had just started getting tutored in how to use PMG more effectively. I wasn't even particularly good with my blending back then...Guess it just goes to show, you can become too polished at something. It is one of my favourites too.

Hm..Why not do a revisit with your current skill level? Not to say that it has much room for improvement--It's truly amazing as it is, but it might be fun to play around with.

Personally, I'm not that big a fan of steampunk things, but this is cool either way. Well done.
