Prop Guns?

Post by MattexFilms » Sat Sep 01, 2007 8:51 pm

Im looking for some prop guns which don't cost an arm and a leg, which look realistic and are easy to get. What do you recomend...

it is very difficult to get prop guns that don't cost that... the closest you can find are realistic looking airsoft guns... other than that, expect to spend over 200 for a prop gun...

I had found a really good site, I was picking up pistols for $10 and an SMG for 7 they were desent quality airsoft, i'll look up the site when I get home to my laptop.

Somehow I don't think looking up airsoft guns at work would go over well. :wink:

www.hobbytron.com isn't too bad. Cheap airsoft guns, maybe not high quality when it comes to playing matches, bit they make good props.

And KAPOWWE sells special prop sets for low budget movie makers. Three broken airsoft guns for 15 dollars, and 5 broken toy guns for 10 dollars. For both broken packs, the guns are randomly selected.I haven't bought from Kapowwe yet so I wouldn't be able to tell you if you'd be getting ripped off or not.

I actually have a pending order with Hobbytron right now, never used them before, but it seems they got it shipped off pretty fast.

Airsoft replicas are probably the cheapest and easiest way to go.

As I see it the only real problem with airsoft guns is sometimes they just can't take a beatting, and over the course of filming I have broken quite a few. The most common problem being people hitting the dirt and the gun smashing on the gound. But hey they are cheep so no worries right.

Yeah well some of the airsoft guns on the Airsoft guns prices range from £19 to £150 and you wouldnt want ro replace an expencive one! But the one I want to get is £22 so thats not to bad... It has a red dot lazer scope and a torch on it. 1/1 scale replica which will make it more realistic for filming. Thats not bad for £22! Here is the link for it http://www.airsoft-warrior.com/shop/pro ... cts_id=452

I have one gun at the moment. (lol ) but it doesn't look very good coz it's plastic and its broken so it's not so good for filming.

I've not done so... :cry:

My first---the MH AK47, built from scratch! Then a few nice pistols from the local Dick's Sporting Goods - those great metal magazines really add realistic weight to the gun.

If you are just going to get airsoft guns you might want to try Ebay. They sell lots of 10 or more guns for $20 or so.

I just got my Hobbytron package today. Not bad at all. Some of them are good enough for viewing out of the box, one or two could use a little painting but they're definitely screen worthy.

I've bought toy handguns on eBay as cheap as $12 and $15. Then you can buy some metal lacquer style paint and spruce it up.
