    Has anyone found a good source for the type of sling swivels used on the EE-3? I can only seem to find the modern oval style instead of the round swivels. Thanks.

    I just bought the oval kind "Uncle mikes" at GI Joes. No, they aren't quite screen accurate, but they look good to me. I think I have read on here somewhere that Sidewinder might have the right ones.

    Don't you mean "Micheal's of Oregon" and Joes Sports and Outdoors? Just kidding I hate both of their name changes. I saw saw Sidewinder had some nice ones, I guess I can bug him if no ones else gives me the answer.

    I know the ones that you are talking about, they are the only ones anyone seems to carry. I'll save that for last case scenario, my Fett is still a long way off. I just wanted to get the blaster checked off that loooonnnnggg list.

    I don't care much for the name changes either. Never mess with what works! I know what you mean by the looong list. I am 13 months into my Fett project and am about ready to suit up for the 1st time. I am just waiting on my gloves to arrive and I'll be Fett! Good luck with your swivel search. Jason

    I too bought my set from Sidewinder!!

    In a pinch you could always buy a set of hex bolts and drill a few holes then add hoops
