I don't really understand what you are referring to in the first question. What makes the tip extend? What those brass things are? What that clear tube is? What that wood block is? What the metal hook type thing is?

I'm actually using Stefan's plans for my gun. I took his 2 page plans, and enlarged them, and then took the measurements. They are very similar to Norms, and weren't too developed. The measurements are as follows:

5" Base.
2" Verticle Front
2.125" (Close to) Angle.
2" Top
1.5" Clippard Plate
1.5" Below Clippard
2" Verticle Back

The sides should be made to match, just look at Norms plans. You could even use his, and it would turn out the same.

Thank you for responding ecto man. what I ment to ask thow is in the scene where the ghostbusters are geting ready to shoot goser they pres a button and the tip exstends. I mean the clear piece come out of the gun and exstends out I don't know how it does this. in the movie Bill murrary says make it hard and then that is when the tip comes out please respond.

I always respond. The tip extends by pressing the green lever on the Proton Gun near the main switches. You can see pictures on my site. The rotation of the barrel has nothing to do with it, if you are wondering.

Ok thanks but how do you rig up the tip so when you flick the switch the tip will retract. do you use spring or what do you use. The reason why I thought It was a button you press by the tip of the gun because norms plans say that it is a red button by the tip.

I'm pretty sure there is just a rod and lever going through the Gun to extend the tip.

Ectoman how would you rig up this rod to the leverto get it to exstend. I mean how would you send it through the gun. On the pack you are building now how do you get that clear piece of the gun to exstend. thanks

The tip is spring loaded and the button releases the tip to "spring " out and you need to reset by hand, That is how the packs I saw on the set of GB 2 worked.
and by the way, its called a "Netrino wand" wink not a proton gun smile
