That would get the person carrying it arrested in Kanuckistan where the rcmp now warms people not to be on the street with air guns, BB guns or replicas which are now classified as "firearms".

Thanks Sir Charles  :)

PJ.... I can sympathize,  but not entirely   :(  as I'm a citizen , not a subject , still as a citizen we must remain ever diligent, 

here below the Medicine line ,  by the vote and the grace of God, we still have our 2nd Amendment.

The 2nd Amendment is all that is saving you.

Our government denies it, but even we "subjects" of the Crown have the same rights you do, granted under the Magna Carta and outlined in Blackstones's Commentaries on the Common Law of England.

These inalienable rights came across the Atlantic with the people who populated Canada just as surely as they did with the American pioneers. As it says at the Blaine, Washington border crossing arch - "Children of a Common Mother".

That can be interpreted to mean that "Mom" was a common woman and slept around, hence we have different national "fathers".  :-[

But what we share today are people in high places that are "globalist" in their world view rather than "nationalist". You are lucky to have Trump who puts America first.

Our national leader has stated that Canada is the world's first "post national state" with no history or core values worth preserving. That should have caused riots in the streets and a storming of the Bastille on Parliament Hill, but the true characteristics of Canadians are acquiescence and compliance through long years of social engineering.

Gentlepersons-
instead of politics, let us wish each other "happy holidays" and return to the steampunkish topic :-)

since i have a quantity of parts, i have slowly begun a remington project inspired by Tinker.

i never understood "why" the remmington has that long nose on the frame, so I took a beater frame and cut it off
and re-shaped the front of the frame a tish. Since I plan for this to be a snubby with a barrel of perhaps 3" or less,
I am pondering the possibility of filling in the rammer hole as well. I am also planning on making this one a little
"steamy" so any ideas you may offer are welcome.

photos will follow, hopefully, after I get done running around.....

Yay Prof,
We need pics, I work better visually.   I am thinking at the very least, a gear inlay in the grip.  Possibly make it part of a airship captain's gear.

After being involved in CAS since around 1989 and having been really into good looking duds I've finally gotten to the point that I don't care what folks wear to the matches.  Steam Punk?  OK,  B Western,  Sure.  Anything is fine.  I just wish I could ditch all that and wear my normal jeans, Redwing chukkas, work shirt, and ball cap.

Hasn't the costuming issue has gotten sorta tiresome?

No....

I agree with Major2 - clothing style is a huge part of the fun of the game.

However, my everyday clothing includes vest, boots, southwest style jewelry, old-timey style shirts and a decorated fedora,
so I am probably not exactly a "mainstream" sort of dresser anyway.

On the occasions when we go out "fancy", I usually include either a frockcoat or greatcoat and a victoreana style dress hat...

photos of the parts & frame forthcoming, the electronical telegraphy devices are acting up... :-(

Hey Professor,
I mocked up a cartridge box for a steam punk cap and ball carbine, but have yet to make it.   It is for my carbine back a page or two.   Feel free to use for your project.

Ah Hey Mogo ....  ;D

Would you be terribly upset were I also to use your template for some Cartridge Box Labels ??  ::)   

With a couple of word changes, that Label would be perfect for the C45S cartridges I shoot in my Henry Trapper.  Just flat super FUN!!

I would be overjoyed if it were spread and updated as needed for the user.   If I post it, it is up for grabs.    I made this when my carbine was in the design infancy stages, but it and the label came to mind after we did a Firefly marathon here at work.  Small group of young'uns, had never heard of Serenity, Firefly nor Browncoats, so another group of nerds educated them at lunch for a couple of weeks.   During that, I came up with Reynold's Renowned Revolving Rifle.  (love iteration).  I still want to tweek the carbine and while I am a lousy writer, I even had an outline for an alternate Cthulu history, where the Alamo did not fall and Texas was the last bastion of hope.    The rifle and airship (made from the body of a thunderbird) feature prominently.   

Then I am pretty sure the medication kicked in and I went back to work.

Gentlemen, I LOVE the cartridge boxes and am thoroughly enjoying this thread. Sounds like it would be perfect for campaigning a C96 Mauser, wouldn't it?

Since the subject has resurfaced ..

I need to fabricate another Steam Punk pistol , for another theme party my daughter will attend.

I still have the one shown a page or two back. My thoughts are leaning toward a C96 or Luger though I not set in concrete on the idea.
So far just bright color plastic junk.

Sadly there just to few cool metal guns

 However I did see this one  :-\

good surface area for gears etc. and it resembles a 1917 Colt

Alas, any C96s out there that are decent replicas are usually snatched up by Star Wars fans to make Han's blaster.    This actually caused the loss of some shootable real C96s in the 90s and early 2000s as people bought serviceable pistols and converted them to props.    )-;

That makes me think, I would not "dress up" my Bolo C96, but I do have a plastic BB shooting version of a Broomie that would be just the ticket! Got it for less than $5 on fleabay a while back.

I'm kinda stuck wondering how to "Steampunk" my outfit without going deep into the genre. Or is that not the way to do it?

I'm not interested in gussying up my guns with gears, gongs, etc., but my basic clothing. I'm already wearing 'Steampunk' welding googles on my hat.

I don't want to clutter up my body with things that might catch on props or guns.

What are some of you doing ..... ?
