Oh this... Dales Kaine? That's my old title.
This is my first thread I posted in this site PERIOD. Ah, nostalgia.
Okay, how do I put this...let me explain his power by showing how he replicate a pistol.
First of all, he needs to know the basic appearance and every little components of the gun. He should know it to the extent of being able to assemble them blindfolded or draw each and every one of them if he could draw. Oh, and this applies to bullets and the chemical make up of firepowder inside it too, which he should know in molecular level.
Once he has every single components completely understood, he needs to understand how to use it and what it is made for. He should have the purpose and basic history of the gun, like, it is created at a gun factory (he should know exactly where it is from, too) to shoot at people and whathaveyou. If he doesn't know how to use it, he can't replicate it.
There's one thing that could skip those laws, however; make a weapon a familiar.
Now, this is something that can be done to weapon that is created/assembled/forged personally, not mass produced. There's a ritual that can make the essence of a weapon, which reflects the attitude of its creator, manifest in various form, but mostly in spirit. If he could make the soul submit to him, it becomes his Familiar Weapon, which he can replicate as easily and often as he want.
He first starts with an exploding sword and builds up his armory at that point. He doesn't appear in my current project, though.
