Bronze Webley replica UPDATE 2/15!

  1. #1

    Merged: Bronze Webley MK1No1 in production 12/29!!

    Presenting the protype bronze MK1No1 Webley flare gun! I know this is a project that many are interested in so I'll just get to the details. And yes - I know the pictures suck... my birthday is in several days so anyone who wishes to send me a better digicam is welcomed









    * It's cast in three separate pieces so it has a 'working' load feature. I still have to get the proper screws and springs to make it work smoothly.
    * It weighs 6 pounds - less than the original due to the handle being completely hollow. (The handle is welded and cleaned up on the stock bracket side)
    * The stock is a replica by Chrima
    * The barrel is being re-molded because my original mold produced waxes that require too much clean up. the new molding will expedite production and ultimately make the mechanics work better.



    * Size is nearly identical to original. (pic shows handle of original due to the barrel being molded)

    Anyway... let me know what you think. It still has a bit of a way to go before being ready to finish up as a blaster.

    I have had many inquiries about the availability of these. Yes they will be openly available (seeing how it is only a gun replica and not a prop). But I still have work on the mold and I wish to get an 'x' amount of waxes ready to go so I wont be rushed to produce them.

    Thanks for looking!!

    I too have seen this first hand and it is great and that was even before any of the clean up.

    Looking good Brian, can’t wait to see this again at the Sac prop party.

    Sac prop party...I'm assuming you're referring to the one at RPF that's been trying to get going for quite some time...

    I'm not going to be able to make it, can do a day time event, but not evening. Be spending that time w/ my family.

    But, I'm curious, where do you guys live? I live in Dixon...

    take care,

    -Rex

    I'm probably going to get shot for asking this, but WHY is it Bronze?

    Ohhhhh! I thought it might have been some variation of the blaster I wasn't aware of.

    Not really... I posted on the RPF as well and even though I'm not ready to sell I will be asking $285 plus shipping for the full webley (I'll be looking into rings for the sling). or $220 for a rough casting (clean up is up to you but welding is included)

    The barrel mold is still two weeks off (I can only get in the shop for so long a day) and it will be at least a month before I get any castings at all so I ask for your patients.

    But with that being said I've decided to take an interest poll so I get an idea what I have to start with. Please e-mail at: TK581@sbcglobal.net and let me know (it's easier to keep track of that way) And please let me know if you're writing from TDH or RPF

    thanks!

    Any chance of getting one without the stock and bracket? No really, this is a serious question.

    sure... These are cast in the time honored tradition of lost wax casting it is not a precise method but it offers the ability to change things. the guns are cast in three pieces as pictured. I can cut out the bracket and and fill in the gaps with wax. attaching elemtents may require some figuring out but nothing a drill and tap set can't fix. For example, if you still want a MK1No1 - but Jedi version, I will cut the barrel an inch off from the base to accomodate a Jedi conversion.

    I would like to add that I only have the elements to make the bare gun and presently do not offer or plan to offer conversion kits or the like.

    thanks

    Is the design on the grip supposed to be there or not? I noticed that it was different in each pic. I know this is probably common knowledge to all of you but I have never seen the real deal.
