Something along the same lines, perhaps with some commercial value:

What if you made the body slimmer like a normal pen, but out of titanium, and pressurized it with 1000 psi. I challenge you to make a +1000psi pengun, Ik you have been taking about it for a while :P

I'm sorry to say that Oxy, the spudfiles user who commissioned this pen gun, has not paid for it and is not replying to private messages or emails. Lesson learned, I'll be taking deposits in future.

I'm guessing it was around 10-15 hours of work in all including finishing.

Damn, that hurts. Pretty much the same as someone would drill me to my eye and not pay for a knife, so i can imagine the feeling. Now send him a packet of sh*t :D

How much will you take for it?
I mean...

such a thing of beauty...made by a SF legend?

Shouldn't be too hard to find another buyer...

Then again..
Maybe the guy that ordered it is hospitalised after a nasty whipcream accident and the thought of owning your launcher is the only thing keeping him alive ..


But I doubt that..

I don't want to get caught up in a bidding war with you Brian 8) ... Jack was the all metal version constructed for a customer? Would you forsee any US Customs issues shipping to the US?

If I still had it I wouldn't be complaining, unfortunately Oxy has received the pen gun which I sent in good faith that he would pay on delivery as everyone else I've sent parts to has, alas this did not happen and he has not been in touch since February.

Maybe the guy that ordered it is hospitalised after a nasty whipcream accident and the thought of owning your launcher is the only thing keeping him alive ..


Also a possibility, but the cynic in me thinks otherwise.

Jack was the all metal version constructed for a customer?


It is currently on display at a Canadian airsoft/paintball outlet run by my associate LeMaudit. Those who like it are free to commission one.

Would you forsee any US Customs issues shipping to the US?


I have sent a pen gun to the US without problems, also a ballistic knife to Mexico but that's another story :roll:

Make sure you have a good product, don't sell to 12 year old kids, make sure you're physically far away :)
