    Buy two models,one with the ewapon and onde without it. That's basicly how everyone else does it, either that or just stick with the weapon, oterwise you'lle have to remodel the figure every time you wanna change weapons and that's just insane.Some people have been putting magnets on thier models and using that to stick parts together instead of glue,but I dunno how well that would work, especialy with heavt parts like metal bits and big weapons.

    Rare earth magnets are plenty strong enough to hold metal models.

    Otherwise get a model with and one without the weapon. Or if your opponents don't mind just tell them the model counts as having a standard weapon.

    If you have a steady enough hand, drill three holes in a triangular pattern into the shoulder joint of the torso, and matching holes in theshoulder joint of the weapon arm. Three short pieces of wire (glued into the arm) are enough to hold the arm in place, while still being able to swap arms.
    I use this mainly to swap between bolt pistols and plasma pistols, or power swords and power fists. I have not tried this with metal models, but it can be quite effective with a plastic mini.

    I would go with the one above me. Just drill holes and put something that pokes out, drill a hole in the thing that's gonna be put there, and there you go, click-on weapons, just like the battle of macragge space marines.

    A friend of mine uses a pinning method. As in the above post he drills a hole or two into the model using a very small bit with a dremel and a corresponding hole in the arm, etc. Then he sets (glues) a small rod of metal ( say using a 24 guage metal wire) in the arm and then after that dries cuts it to fit the depth of the hole drilled in the model.
