First off: NOT A WORKING GUN.
Second: CHECK YOUR LAWS!
This is a prop gun! There are no moving parts, and there is no way to use it as a weapon (shy of beating people. But don't do that. It's rude). There may also be laws in your area (federal, state, and local) that may apply to making, selling/giving, and using these. I have stuck a link at the bottom for this.
With those two cleared, please PLEASE show some love to the original model by mikearnold! This took me mere moments to split compared to the time he plowed into the model!
This was sliced using Netfab, and the STL files were repaired using Netfabs online cloud services. Each of the STL's are small enough to be printed on most RepRap's and even some of the smaller printers. The largest part is the hammer at 7cm x 7cm x 2cm.
The parts can be glued with any glue that will work on ABS, or welded using acetone/ABS juice (which is how I did it).
As a note: muzzle_2 has no "fixed" tag to it. Netfabb could not repair that STL, but it printed just fine as is.
And a second note: chamber2 has an odd hunk missing from it. It doesn't seem to show up in models/STL, but it ends up going missing during the print. Using ABS paste will fill this in lickty split.
PSS: Thanks to Terminus for pointing this out: due to US laws, I would HIGHLY recommend you paint the barrel orange as to comply with the US Code 5001. Details on code 5001.
All though this is a federal law that you should adbid by, you should also check your local laws. If you need to, call your local police station, or the police station of the place you plan to show this off at to ensure you are not stepping on any legal toes.
1)Create Gcode that works for you
2)Print one of each part
3)Glue the parts using ABS juice (recommended) or an ABS safe glue. I would highly recommand gluing parts 1 and 2 together, then gluing those parts together (for example, butt_1 and butt_2, then glue that to the solid hammer that is made from hammer_1 and hammer_2). This may result in the muzzle being a tad off, but it will prove to have a much stronger bound this way!
4)Smooth and paint
