Salt Lake Queen - better lit by Shendorion Salt Lake Queen - better lit by Shendorion
Two more shots of the Salt Lake Queen, this time on a neutral backdrop with better lighting.

The stock was an oak stair riser, the plating was a brass kick plate, the rear chamber was a cast brass seedling vase. The muzzle was a doorbell face plate, and the forward chambers are a couple of bits off a lamp and some 1/2" ID copper pipe.

Tools used: band saw, Dremel, hand drill and pinning vise, a miniature fret saw, various files and rasps and sandpapers, and steel wool to smooth the plate edges and take the lacquer off the brass so it'll tarnish.

An incredible piece that is for sure! It looks so solid, like it could actually fire. Great work!

Thanks! It's funny you should mention Mavericks - the design is based on a Maverick and the head of a fireman's axe.

Now this is what all the "maverick" toters need to see. I cannot sucessfully express my full admiration for such a fantastic piece of weaponry. Not overdone, very simple but exquisite in design. If I were have someone of your caliber in my empire there is no telling what may be acomplished.
In short, very nice.

Great work!

Would love to see a kit of this, but, I guess that'd kill the uniqueness of it. Would love one though.
