Construct your very own steampunk rifle

steampunk-rifleThis instructable is labeled as a “fancy steampunk blunderbuss rifle,” but we won’t go into the many reasons it isn’t a blunderbuss rifle model. Chances are the builder just liked the name blunderbuss and forgot about the part where those guns had short barrels and didn’t need a scope since they fire scatter shot. Still, this steampunk rifle isn’t that hard to make.

All it requires is a banister, an old lamp (I hope he got his mom’s permission), and some gold spray paint. Throw some random wires and curly things on there to make your own steampunk rifle. Just don’t call it a blunderbuss unless you remove the scope and chop the barrel.
