We will describe the construction and low power testing of an RF cavity to be used as a photo-injector for the ALPHA-X project within the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde (UK). The gun is a two and a half cell S-band cavity, employing a metallic photocathode. RF power is coupled to the gun via a co-axial power coupler. The specification of the gun and the low power measurements made to achieve the correct mode frequency and field flatness will be presented.
