I had to do some revising to make it tougher and more sturdy. The join of the crystal emitter and the handle grip had to be removed to make it stronger. It feels like a real prop since it is heavy. It is my best, at least in my opinion.
Coming back to this, I'm realizing that the one I made is almost a copper hybrid between this and something a bit more like in the show. I'll have to get some pics up. Sence making my own, I've bought Tens, Elevens, and River's. But to design my own that extends, lights up, and makes sonic noises would be wonderful!
