Harrison Ford carried a paperweight in the Star Wars films. Here's how a sci-fi fan created a working blaster of his own.

The Fun Functional Test Affair

They say trouble comes in threes. If that's the case, good news must come in twos. This long two-year project of building my own live-ammo firing "Man From U.N.C.L.E." Special has finally come to an end.

My apologies to all for the sporadic nature of my U.N.C.L.E. Special Project. While my work as Assistant Editor for Shooting Illustrated takes precedence, sometimes fate intervenes instead.

Apologies once again for the lack of timely blog updates pertaining to my U.N.C.L.E. Carbine Project.
