Stormtrooper Blaster

My biggest nerd project to date has been my scratch-built Star Wars Stormtrooper Blaster.  It's not 100% accurate or 100% done but I'm pretty proud of it.  The original blaster was made from a modified Sterling machine gun but I built mine completely from scratch, using mostly junk film equipment. The only 3D printed item on this is the rear portion of the scope, everything else is metal.  It's more or less finished except for some good weathering.

Reference blaster from Return of the Jedi.

With original, all metal but inaccurate scope.
