Almost finished my ESB rifle.

    Almost finished my ESB rifle.

    I'm almost done with this. I just added the real V8 side greeblies. Thanks to Lonepigeon for the great idea with the ABS pipe spacer to make them more secure

    Only thing missing now is the sling strap... which is coming soon!

    Good God! That's a thing of beauty! Get a sling/strap on there, weather it and it's done. Let ask you this.... I see you have some sling "studs" already mounted... do you plan to just use standard sling swivels or are you going to put a type of "O" ring. Just wondering, as I'm working on the same project.

    Yes I'll be adding a sling strap. I'm having a professional leather worker make me one which will be an almost perfect replica of the real Webley slings. Even the snap hook will be almost spot on.

    Those sling studs are actualyl modified picture frame hooks and are almost perfect. I'll be adding left over Denix Broomhandle lanyard o-rings to them. That's what the real Webley sling I saw looked like.

    Looks beautiful Kurt! Did you make this from a kit? Or scratch built? Either way very impressive!

    Its one of the old HS Bronze Webley replicas with wooden stock.
    Heyland 3 cell flash tube (very similar to the MPP)
    MLC fiberglass scope mounts/blocks
    MLC fiberglass stock boxes
    Resin split plugs (All my real ones on my Vader Reveal neckbrace)
    Correct vintage scope rings
    Correct ASI scope
    Real V8 connector arms (I think that's what they're called anyway!)
    DL 44 Blaster barrel clamps

    The hooks for the sling are modified picture frame hooks. And I've just recently added the lanyard rings (discarded rings from Broomhandle Mausers).

    That is the best Ive seen so far & I love the work on the stock. Damn gotta start an ESB, Im preying for a new run of the Webley by HB also on the hunt for a 3 cell or 2 cell Heiland, have never found an MPP but I'll keep looking! Nice one gives newbies like me hope.
