At Punished Props, we love video games and movies, which means we love making replica prop guns! If we’re making a gun quickly and also want it to be light enough to haul around a convention, we craft them out of foam. Sometimes we’ll re-paint a Nerf Gun, which is a great way to get started with prop making! If we’re looking for a clean finish and need a few copies, we make the gun out of a sturdy material, like wood or plastic sheets, then mold and cast the piece to make a sturdy copy.
Here’s a collection of our guns that we’ve crafted, ranging from simple foam hand cannons to the crazy District 9 Rifle!
