A talc-firing six-shooter air pistol with working escapement mechanism.
About this creation
This is a six-shooter pistol (wild west type thing...) that fires talcum powder 'for effect'. Definately not for asthmatics or people with strict parents etc.


  • Six shots

  • Semi-Automatic

  • talcum-powder gun smoke

It uses air stored in long tubes for rapid release (the air tank is too slow). It blows the talc out of the 'bullet' and down the gun barrel. The most difficult part was making the escapement mechanism for rotating the barrel exactly one bullet at a time when the trigger (also linked to the valve) is pushed forwards. After much mucking about and getting annoyed, the result was a ratchet connected to the trigger and a bar to align the barrel.

Brilliant! I wish I could do something like that. BTW your eamils that bounced, sorry about that, i haven't checked that account in so long because i though no one cared anymore. I'll set up a site soon, with a registration thing hopefully. I may need to re-issue codes because I've lost th orignals anyway. How did you manage to build that though?
