It is a lovely gun. I am using a similar drill myself to make a raygun. How did you get the chuck off? And what is that baskety thing on the end of the gun? I can't place it.

The baskety thing is a sink drain cover. I just removed the little peg-thing in the center of it. 
And I didn't get rid of the chuck as that would sacrifice stability of the 'barrel.' Its still there, I just soldered it to the body and spraypainted over it.

Oh ok. It is all very cool. I am going for something a lot simpler with my drills, I think :p

This looks like a really solidly thought out and built prop!
I usually shy away from "steampunk" anymore because most things people apply that word to are either not steampunk at all, or are simply steampunk in the sense that they think it means "its brown and brass, and LOOK! GEARS!" ha ha.
But THIS. Is fantastic! All the components look makeshift but they belong together and look like they have a function. There's nothing that looks unnessecary or thrown on for the sake of steampunking it up.

Can't tell if it's just paint spatters or actual texture but the black spots on the metal parts give the impression that this thing gets really hot when fired/during use. Nice effect!
The shape of the stock gives the whole thing a distinctive silhouette, sort of a more scifi-fantasy feel than straight up victorian which is cool. The contrast between the organic shape of the wood really emphasizes the more heavy duty machined look of everything else.

Awesome job!

This is great. Truly inspiring. I'm just getting into Nerf mods and looking forward to creating original concepts instead of mods. What really caught my eye was your use of the Co2 canister connected to metal tubing, cuz I used the same technique on my Nerf Maverick mod: Steampunk Nerf Gun Maverick N-Strike Mod: Full Gun
Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Love the fact that it looks old and sooty...
