Yes as far as I know, if not a very good copy, a Facebook craft group I belong to had a competition and I won with the compact .177 :D
It came from England so I had to pay $27 postage, I think that was a bargain :shock:

So maybe a copy

Was thinking of building a 'light gun' for indoor fun, then remembered I had some good Wii shooter games, and there lots more out there cheap now :D So started to make a custom Wii Zapper controller, MkII version seems to work well, needs some fine tuning still.

A bit of shaping, pieces to hold remote in and trigger stop.

Girandoni would have been proud! Had you solved the leak problems?

@wyz: I made it.

@Jack: For the most part. Drowning the chamber in Pellgun oil seems to have stopped most of the slow leaking. It will hold at 500 psi for about ten minutes before beginning to drop noticeably. I have my remote tank setup working which makes charging near effortless and also makes the kit pretty portable. I'll have to make a video demonstration soon.
