Rainbow Pistol

I have finally made a Rainbow Pistol! I have been wanting to make one of these for a while but I just haven't had the tools to make it. I got enough money to buy a scroll saw and polycarbonate so this was the first thing that I tried out. I am very happy that I got some practice on the scroll saw before I make more of these and a +bow because my first cuts with the saw were very very bad. Now onto the pistol.

I am very happy with how this turned out because I expected it to be ugly like my fist Snapbow. It isn't ugly at all. There are some imperfections but I can work all of those out in the next couple pistols I build.

It has most of the same features that NOM's RBpistols have. It has a K25, a skirt seal, a rainbow catch, and a very nice handle. The only changes that were made were that I changed out the nylon spacer pulls to a polycarbonate pull. The only reason for that was because I forgot to buy the spacers but it actually turned out very well.

There isn't really much to say because RBpistols are pretty self explanatory but I really like it. All that is left to do it stain the handle and sand the edges of the polycarbonate. I have to give a huge thanks to ModMan712 because he made the catch, gave me the measurements, and answered all of my stupid questions about it. I do plan on making rainbow catches myself but I just wanted one for reference and I don't have hole saws yet. You stay classy, San Diego.
