    How is it, and how can I make it better?

    I took out the air restrictors inside.

    Interestingly painted weapon! Did you have to do that yourself? I didn't think they came in those colours.

    Also interesting, there's a big red button on your keyboard in the first two pics. Is that the 'eject' button from the internet when all seems lost?

    I put black sharpie with silver stripes on the darts, but I think paint would weigh it down too much.

    Yeah, you're right... paint would definitely decrease the 'fun' factor if the missiles did not shoot far.

    I suspect your brother, if he is into steampunk, will love it either way.

    I'm also making a 'future retro' gun and I'm building a fort in the woods. I am 10 years old again :D

    Very cool gun! I'm working on a steampunk 'Robot Monster' costume.
