The Steampunk movement is clearly filled with imaginative folks. One of the items they subject to transformation or just plain creation is, of course, guns.

I will be selecting some of their creations from time to time to display here. Remember these are things of imagination so they require a wee bit leeway on utility or functionality. Think of them as art rather than defense.


Steampunk Flintlock Pistol by Frijoleluna. 

And no, I have no idea why there is a vacuum tube attached to it. That is the art part.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. That scope…the better to see how far off you were after you drop the hammer.

    And while I am a bit of an aficionado of Steampunk / Cyberpunk / Similar, I’ve got nothing on the vacuum tube, but I’d still shoot it… at least once.

  2. You need to go to the NRA museum in Virginia. They had a small room filled with steampunk firearms. Looked like a few might actually work, too!

  3. Steampunk has gotten really weird lately. But then, it’s all about that whole ‘what if’ the future stayed the same way aesthetically as it was in Victorian times. Though always agreed with the video. There is silliness where you just glue gears on it, then there’s the really elaborate ones that looks like it can actually function in some weird way.
