The closest thing you will find to a "real, live ray gun," like in the old comics, movies, serials, and science fiction stories. These are a part of my "Retro Tech" series made out of wood (of all things) which gives them a cool look and feel -- kind of like an old toy, or a curios piece made my an olde worlde craftsman of a previous century, or maybe even Santa...

I love making these!

One of the earliest known and widely respected ray guns from the beginning of the "Steampunk Wars" oh, so long ago... Old Vic is a cherished classic. So called with humor AND respect after Queen Victoria and the unusually active part she played in those dastardly times (little known today!). As most of the early models she had but one "function" as there were no controls; like the old gunpowder firearms you simply pointed and pulled the trigger! A dual primer set up allowed for firing at what would have been double the rate otherwise; they are connected to the main barrel body by two flexible, metal tubules. They ignited the ethereal gases and created a plasmotic blast of electrified heat with a terrible kickback! This one's a real beauty in design and function (it's rumored the old queen carried one herself!).

It's longest dimension is about 9 1\/2" with the top only barrel length being about 7 1\/2"!

This is a FULL, LIFE SIZE replica (or 1:1 scale finished model) all ready for display. I hope the pictures fully communicate the charm I am sure you will find in the final product when you have it in your hands. This ray gun is designed by me as an original, then painstakingly put together and made by hand from various woods and wood pieces, occassionally with other bits or materials (generally like 97-99% is wood). I paint and \/ or finish these with dark undertones and shading to highlight the details and then use layers of metallic and \/ or other coloring and finishes. I try to let just enough of the wood character, sometimes even the grain itself show through which I think adds a special dimension. I am sure you will be pleased.

Please see my many other pieces usually made from wood, including LIFE size ray gun replicas, robots, rockets, flying saucers, vehicles, animals, diorama scenes and more!

Note that these collectable pieces are meant for the display case or advanced costume wear possibly and NOT for children to play with. Do to their hand made and finished nature as well as the natural wood used slight variations are of course normal.

I prefer emails rather than convos if possible for easy and flexible communication and usually place my adddress in my store banner or description, so thanks. I take credit card payments (usually directly as a merchant) but may also take other online methods as well (any options will be listed in the email I will send buyers); I will email you an invoice as soon as I can after you buy so you can pay but all the information you should need should be available right on the Etsy receipt ... and in any case I gladly accept checks (USA) or money orders! I DO usually ship all over the world (please read this page fully). Foreign buyers please email me first.

Interested in a variation of what you see or an outright custom made piece at a fair price? Contact me for details. Thanks for looking!
