Ambroglious: (from the FALCON LORD steampunk-fantasy series by D. A. Metrov) an ancient dinosaur-like monster (related to the Tyrannosaurus rex and common lizard); twenty-five leapspans (200 feet) tall; dwells beneath the sea in a state of long-term hibernation unless awakened by divine powers to protect the Earth.

This Steampunk rifle was handcrafted from a Nerf Sledgefire. This gun has a break-action shotgun style hinge that allows the gun to hinge mid-point for the purpose of "loading". It went through 12 steps in the painting process to capture the desired look and to ensure durability. Accents were added to convey the Steampunk aesthetic. We strive to make our Steampunk pieces appear totally realistic, including wear and weathering that would be appropriate. In addition any added Steampunk theme parts are fabricated to appear functional, not just decorative.
It was made to be a costume piece, and not designed to still shoot.
Specific parts added to the Ambroglious are: real vacuum tubes, genuine leather wrapped handgrip, bronze pressure gauge, and a cache of bullets in the stock.
This is a great Steampunk festival orcosplay piece or just for display. It is designed to be light enough to carry, but appear to be the real thing.
Because this is a toy gun, it can be confused with a real weapon. As such, our shop is not responsible for any handling of this piece that causes any confusion or harm.
