NOTE: This is a kit to build a toy replica. This kit is designed specifically as a con-safe cosplay prop. The end of the prop is squared-off and blunt and is therefore in no way intended to create a potentially dangerous weapon. Any modification to the design as sold is outside the recommendation and responsibility of the creator and manufacturer of this kit.

Goofing around with finishing options:
The items on my Shapeways store are the kits I'm selling for now. The other versions (DAOTF, AC, AC2, ACB, etc) and other props would require ground-up re-designs to be Shapeways kits.
I've found dual action is a cool gimmick but I have yet to figure out a way that doesn't make the overall design significantly worse. I feel my gravity designs are the most visually faithful, reliable, comfortable, affordable, accessible and safe designs I have come up with that maintain the important elements for a cosplay/display piece. Perhaps one day I (or another more crafty person) will noodle out a way to integrate the DA functionality elegantly without such sacrifices but, despite all my efforts, I still haven't seen a way to add DA that I'd be happy enough with to sell.
