Black Betty

Below is the recently completed gun prop "Black Betty" also known as the "Rock Gun". It's a mean looking, massive, double barrel shotgun pistol prop that can be cocked and reloaded, has working triggers and interchangable bullets. For all the construction details and a lot more images, take a squiz at the blog.
