I felt the large trigger was a unique touch, so I left it on.

I've always believed that you're not a true Star Wars fan until you make your own hilt. Looking around the forums... I must be the only SW fan...

That's pretty impressive!

I've been wanting to build my own saber for awhile now. Although if I ever get around to it I'll probably go all out with a Force FX style saber.

The large trigger is unique. It definately adds to the overall look of the hilt!

I like it as well. The larger trigger definitely gives it some character. Where did you get the trigger from? It looks like the trigger from an air powered drill I used to use at my last job.

Ding Ding!

As you can see, most of the work was already done. I just painted the red handle, epoxied on the emitter (a couple of washers I found in the garage), and scraped the rust spots off with a dremel.

Next step is to make a nice stand.

That's exactly the same thing that I used to use. That trigger was kinda hard to miss. Still a nice hilt.
