We’ve seen a lot of Destiny weapon replicas over the past few months, created by various methods, but the Thorn hand cannon Kirby Downey made has a small twist: There’s an airsoft gun hidden inside.

Might be against the rules of an airsoft field to run around with a replica like this, but it certainly looks great.

This is a Converted airsoft version of my thorn which I designed. It is made to be a simple shroud which encases an electric CYMA Glock 18C AEP airsoft pistol.

The model has space for 3x 5.3 mm Metal dowels. This improves the strength of the model and decreases the risk of it breaking if it gets knocked or dropped.

In order to access the batter the thorn has to be dismantled but the rest of the necessary components have ease of access.



Here’s a video of a WIP version of the gun being tested:
