holy moley! that is gorgeous!
This would look a lot better up close! Like in my hand or strapped to my Fett costume.
HOLY BALLS BatMan !!!! This is sweet. My money for shipping is ready to go. just say the word !!!! (thank god I got on the list!!!!)
Any more updates?
All (paid) grips are now cast / milled & drilled... the Ali, well you've seen that!
The main bodies are all machined but my time in the machine shop was very minimal today as the guy only opened up for a couple of hours? I need to just machine the former and the tubes are good for pressing...
hey Gav, any bones you can throw us brother? how things going...??
Well after stressing trying to find a contractor to make my former...
I have had some success, should be picking it up later today (my time) and hopfully be able to get into the other guys machine shop this weekend for a few hours of Ali tube forming!
Then it's a case of contacting everyone about shipping and they are good to go to their new owners... with a # & COC too.
Again I really appreciate your patience guys... more to come!
Sounds great. Thx for the update.
Coolness! Can't wait.
Just awesome... these are smokin' hot!
Later tonight (my time I guess) when they have all been cleaned and ready for photo session....
Will have some pics for you all that have paid up...
I'm very happy with the new Ali tubes after using my new former!
*next* - Shipping quotes and delivery (yippee thank G for that) - I know...
Still waiting on an answer to my e-mails...

WOW! Those look amazing. You can have fresh fish every night now.
You have done such a great job on these.
oh my, I think I need a towel! You are absolutely amazing Gav
Wow, that's a plethora of pistols!
Nice work Gav, they are looking awesome.
With all those lovely blasters there, I'd say your plans for world domination are in good shape. LOL!
GBH - Really appreciate that man, at times I was stressing out so much because time was flashing past with what seemed very little progress?
Skip - Woohahahahahahaha....... *get back to work on the project*
I forgot to mention that I will be speaking to Volker about updating the 1st post with paid members against or just plain ignored us!
With that, I had made '80' sets of Ali parts as per the original interest so I still have many sets left for sale...
So speak up...
I may need to get me one of those spare sets.......
I would like to get one.
Lassiter - PP received bro...
Ok guys, seems shipping for these with 'tracking and insurance' is going to be $40... so as soon as I can get the funds the quicker I get these out to you.
So they're ready?? Are you going to be sending them as each person Paypals the funds?
All thats required is a little sanding around the trigger opening and the shape the hilt to your own spec....
As for shipping, As long as the funds are coming in all week then I can do a 'mass' delivery to the PO this coming weekend!
I dont envy you bud - happy...packing and posting etc
now get this out of the way so u can work on my stuff!! ;P

These things are kind of heavy, and they're shipping internationally from England. Just something to consider...
LOL! Make a change for a quality prop like this to come from the UK. must be tough for our US friends to have to pay higher shipping. LOL!
they are totally insured as well...Gav is a stand up guy, and would never do anything to rip anyone off...cheers Gav!
True, his work is top notch and he's a man of his word.
just to add to wot others have said - Mojo is a realy stand up guy; and never one to profit from fellow members off this board.
other thing to consider - is the shippin from UK is gonna be expensive. CHeck out Royal Mail website or Parcel force if u like. I would say $40 is actually abt right; esp.ly if its includes tracking and insurance. If its any consolation - the Royal Mail charges us Brits an arm and a leg even for domestic shippin.
I typically pay USD $40 for a helmet, shipped from US.

Here here! Mojo is a class act! Don't just take it from me, the peoples have spoke!
Paypal is also taking their $2 dollars or so out of the $40 as well! It all starts to add up... Paypal's Cut off the Top, Tracking, Insurance.
WE LOVE YOU GAV!!!!! LOL!
But it's 8.20 in the morning?!! I need at least 2 more mugs of coffee!
For what it's worth, when we ship helmets to the UK the shipping is usually around 50 - 60 USD. They are big, but very light. Weight and size both count toward the shipping cost, so 40 seems perfectly reasonable.
You're a good guy Brian.
These look absolutely amazing! nice work brother!
if you do another run, im interested!
PM sent, I paid in full with exception to S&H. Oh, by the way freakin awsome side arm.
Should be sending payment soon! Got the last couple of Vader helmets payments coming my way =)
Will be sending PP through next friday. Look forward to seeing this baby up close.
I did pay shipping awhile ago, but hasn't been updated yet. Just want to avoid any confusion.
And speaking of shipping, Have these beauties started shipping yet?
I am jonesing for some new Fett props.
Please mark me down as paid.
S&h charges were paypal´d two days ago
first post updated with first wave of shipping (not sent in any particular order)... They were not impressed with 23 boxes!!
Woo hoo! Mine is on the way! Thanks for the update, Gav.
Ah, man - I don't believe I've only just seen this thread. Can I be placed on the "If Someone Drops Out" list please?
Beautiful work there Gav
Contacted Gav over on the Galactic Knights boards, he say's he'll squeeze me in, but that I need to speak to Volkerc to add me to the list. Problem is, your PM inbox is full Bro - so I have resorted to asking on the thread - hope that's ok?
woo!! looks like mine will be in the next batch out! yippie!!! haha
Paypal sent for total amount including shipping.
Awesome Gav, cheers!
I have heard so much about these guns, only managed to find this thread. They are superb Gav. Think the delays are a small problem. People seem to be generally happy with these. Keep up the good work!!
I can't seem to find anywhere that list who you shipped these through Gav...which company can we plug those tracking numbers into to follow these babies around the world?
I checked on USPS and it looks like it is coming registered mail. Not much info though, but it looks like that is how it is coming.
Just recieved mine today!!! amazing work guys! I love it!
It's here!! Looks great!
Thanks Mojo and Volkerc for this.
A couple of questions.
1. Are the resin inserts on the barrel already glued in? They are tight and I don't want to pry on them, or have them fall out.
2. Suggestions to mount the trigger? Should I cut some type of pin for it or did I miss something in the box?
Again, thanks a bunch. Jason
GOT MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOOOOOO
Thank you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have never seen more than 1 face, and the Spartan face.. it's new for me
Painting will commence this Saturday.
Holy cow! I'm out of it a little while and this thing explodes! Can't wait to get mine. They look brilliant! PM sent! Thanks, Gav!
got mine today! beautiful work, brother! thanks so much! now to just sit back and watch Seeker paint his up so i have a clue at what to do...
Just got mine in. The machining is excellent! Did just a bit of cleanup and threw on a quick coat of paint to see how it looks... and it is VERY nice!!!
I don't have my lighting setup here so I can't really get a decent pic, but here is a quick shot with the rushed paint.

Finally, got a better pic.
So, Ah, Errr, yes very nice gentlemen! Is there any ETA on shipping for the rest of the side arms further up the list?
anyone got any insight to where to get a pin for the trigger? is that going to be something as easy as going to Lowe's to find? thanks!
I think the answer is a roll pin from Home Depot or Lowes. For the pics, I just stuck a clipped nail in the hole as a temp.
