Looks great. I'm looking forward. Thank you very much :D :fettesb
Can't wait for mine!!! Ahhh :)
Here it is.
Finally finished my new ESB barrel mounts:
Made from the incorrect Maclow clips spliced together and a modified metal aircraft clamp and are double sided (unlike my old ones). Top 'U's are scratch built.
They're made using a bit of guestimation in some areas, but I'm pleased with how they turned out and think they look quite close given the ref I have (SCaps).
I've left off the mystery detail on the front one that goes around the threads as there is no firm evidence either way (plate/wire/washers/nothing).
They turned out niiiiiice.
... I'll say they are! Picked up a set of these from Simon and they are superb!! A much sturdier mount for the scope. Overall , more interesting detail to look at. Not sure if I'll add washers to the front bracket. By the way , Simon got these to me in under 24 hrs!!

For a Euro Fett, the first with the new barrel mounts.
Did you use a 50mm Maclow clip for the large clamp?
Strictly speaking no, the rear was a 'swimming pool pipe clip' that came in white plastic instead of the grey plastic of the Maclows.
It does have 1 1/2" / 50mm written on it.
Another EE3 with new mounts rolls out to the US, good news (i hope) for the recipient and also for all those waiting as your one step closer to yours.
Just received my ESB EE3, thanks SAS, awesome work...
Partial build with EFX.
Fully finished for a US Fett.
Work work work!
Was there ever a decision made on the origin of the barrel mounts? I know you were discussing that in regards to the current ones you're using.
The thread discussing it ground to a halt due to lack of new findings I think, so until someone finds the exact item(s) - either pics of or the items themselves - it'll remain another Fett mystery.
I'm happy enough that my current ones are about as good as can be, given what we currently know & can see in the caps.
I'm still looking but as sidewinder says things kind of stalled. When I make mine I will use the Maclow and swimming pool clip found in the discussion thread as I believe that they represent the best presently available albeit with a lot of modifications to be done. If I find the exact parts I'll scream it from the rooftops!
Looks great dude. Can't wait to get it in the mail.
Another for Bobamaker.
