Adam Savage Assembles a Mandalorian Blaster Kit!

1 305
Adam and Norm assemble a beautifully machined replica prop kit inspired by the hero blaster from The Mandalorian. It's a lovely prop that has all the hallmarks of a blaster from the Star Wars universe, designed with the same sensibilities of the propmakers from the original trilogy. This aluminum kit comes together with a combination of screws and glue, and we add some real weathering to it to make it worthy of our favorite Mando bounty hunter!

@Joel Carter When WarMachine first started making these he had early bird pricing for those who wanted to first jump in. Pricing changed after that. I don't think this is a sponsored project just one where Adam is giving credit to the maker so it's possible he's speaking from memory. I remember first jumping in early over a year ago and can't remember myself what I paid.

Look at all those guns ! Does Adam just keep all the best stuff for himself ?
_DJ_Gengar_ - 17 dager siden
​@Joshua Reaves I disagree. She wasn't fired for simply being conservative. She was fired for making a disingenuous comparison and spreading potential misinformation. (Which is a MAJOR issue if you look at what has been happening recently in the nation.) The official statement says the real reason too. If it were ONLY for being conservative, a lot more people would be fired from Disney right now. Also, adding more people into this situation will only create more drama and make things worse. We don't need to pressure more people into this. If Adam wants to, then I guess he can but it's probably not what's best right now. She should not have been immediately fired, and doesn't deserve to be hated on, but still held accountable by the company in some way. Maybe a fair warning would be better.

Adam I'm going to humbly ask you to step in on this Gina Carano situation because she's being silenced for her conservative views and her tweet has absolutely zero to apologize for but that's not why she was canned, please add your voice of sensibility thanks! ~Adoring fan

What is the name of the method used to blue or "blacken" the aluminum? I purchased this kit and tried Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black. It came out very blue like heated steel. Any suggestions on getting a more black finish?

The exact pistol it is based on is the '1894 Bergmann No. 1'. Forgotten Weapons did a video on it, which had a major surge in interest when the series first came out.

Dear Ganja. You also use you channel for baiting others. You say "Move along" as if you think you can simply dismiss me like an underling ! Why should I, when I have found a new toy like you ? Also,I have a decent Star Wars Collection myself, but NO dolls ! Just useful stuff like Watches and Light Sabres. As Luke Skywalker said, "Make it so" ! .

@A. Bloke 2.0 Always Learning. Yes...And what's your point? Yours doesn't either. I use this channel for only watching videos and commenting. I don't need to make stuff here, I don't post my creations on youtube. Only other platforms. The fishing emoji implies that you are baiting. If that is true, and you have just been joking this whole time, then just say it man. I HOPE that your other comment was a joke at least...If this was just bait, then congrats. You got me to reply. Move along

"Holster wear" is the wear to the finish on high spots of a handgun, from repetitive drawing and holstering. BTW: I had to look twice to see if that was Grant somehow (RIP Grant Imahara, you are missed) That Indiana Jones .45 Colt M1917 was a nice flex.

The Mandalorian’s blaster is based on the 1894 Bergman Number 1. It is a rare semiautomatic pistol. Forgotten Weapons did a video on bother the Bergman’s history as well as the Mandalorian’s pistol.

There's no point in them wearing masks. They're coworkers, less than 6 feet away in the same room, touching the same things as each other. Masks don't stop you from spreading it, they reduce the amount of particulate, but if you're sitting in the same room right next to each other you're standing in air that is still heavily saturated in each other's particulates

I forget the name of the glue, however any glue that's used in restoration (both in painting and sculpture) and is under the grant of "reversible glue" is an excellent tool in the arsenal of a perfectionist model builder. You can fit and finish parts and then take them apart as many times as you want using it, because usually, it only takes a bit of warm water or some non destructive solvent to take parts apart.
I usually use a little bit of diluted fish glue for my models, makes final assembly for paint an easy task as all the parts are fitted and no longer hold that quality of amplified mistakes as each part takes its toll.

Comparing the pictures on the kit's page with the Bergmann No 1's patent drawing it looks like they have closely replicated how the Bergmann's hammer and trigger internals all work.
You can find the patent drawing I am looking at here:

Neat build but I really wish more shows came up with prop weapons that didn’t follow the mold of old firearms. I loved the weapons in Lexx and more recently Tomorrowland. Even liked the visitor pistols in the V miniseries though a bit conventional.

They'd be crazy to have re-engineered the trigger mechanism, I'm sure they just used CnC and worked up the CAD model directly from the Bergmann blueprints. None of the internals will have been changed for the prop, so it would make sense.
