I'm trying to figure out the parts to this prop & would like you opinion if I'm in the right direction.

The handle to this Timelash Guardolier Rifle looks like a butane soldering iron.

Oh, BTW, is this a light or just a reflection off a metal piece?

2) I'm going to go with "reflection."  It lines up about right with the shine on the actor's forehead and it doesn't make sense that they'd put a light there.
1) Good call on the soldering iron.  My first guess would've been "hot glue gun," but the more I look at them, they mostly have a pivoting trigger instead of one that goes straight back.

I was looking around for a handle, & was thinking, it was ether a 45 degree angled pvc pipe or a handle to a impact tool or drill. I don't know what it is, but that handle looks familiar, I've seen it somewhere.
The best I can think of doing, if I can't find that specific tool, is make a gun & trigger from an angled pipe & electric trigger switch.

I was thinking this looks like a battery drill with a nut driver piece attachment or something like that.
