As many of you have probably seen, HappyTrooper posted a video with templates and a parts list for a do-it-yourself RT-97c build. Needing a new project and loving the look of this blaster, I decided to tackle it. This is in no way a build thread, but more just a few pictures showing the process that I went through. If you want the full build thread, go check out his video.

If you are interested in making your own, you can find his video here: https://youtu.be/ZJHZ1WYtUFI

Also, if you are interested in doing a DLT-19, he also has a video, templates, and parts list as well. You can find that video here: https://youtu.be/_UowOa4-n_0

One small note: I did use ABS pipe as much as I could due to the lighter weight. I used it for the 2” pipe, both 3” couplers, and the 2” to 1.5” reducer. I also used other corner braces and other small parts that I already had around the house. Overall, this gun is super lightweight and I can’t wait to troop in it.

I plan on unveiling this at the Intermountain Healing Hearts event that is coming up on 09/09/2017. Pictures to come of this baby in action.

Huge thanks to HappyTrooper for providing the templates, parts list, and amazing video. Your work is truly inspiring.

Looks awesome. I watched a few of his videos the other day.
