    Working on an ESB blaster build. Can any on tell me how long the barrel of the Webley. Is 7.5 correct?

    And the flash tube is 4.75 inches?

    Thanks

    Check out my Webley Drawings, the grid is 1".

    Also attached is a pic with those dims.

    Hopefully this will help.

    Alan, I don't agree. I looked at this in some detail a while back as part of the barrel mount found part discussion and I made it that the MPP tube should extend about 120 mm from the end of the Webley barrel (which is about 4 3/4"). That 120 mm includes the section which is hidden (or obscured) by the front barrel mount. Unfortunately I'm not capable of your standard of excellent drawing but I did have access to the gallery and my own real found parts (Webley/MPP etc) to come to this conclusion.

    When I saw this thread I thought of something I'd seen before. Low and behold:

    Awesome!

    Well, there has been some disagreement on this issue in the past, but I can only go on what I have learned from the reference pics.

    Attached is a comparison shot I did of my drawing and this classic picture. So I feel pretty good about these dimensions, but I am always looking for new info and fresh ideas.

    The dimension you referenced is what I believe was used for the original Hyperfrim ESB Webley build.

    Back in 2006 I was still deep in research mode on the Webley and it wasn't until I received Sidewinder's first Webley kit was I able to lock down the details for the Webley drawings.

    Always looking for feedback to keep me honest.

    Using 3 images from the ESB stills I got a pretty good comparison between different takes, and it seems that all the major parts are/were in the same place, more exactly there were no major changes in position or order:

    I agree with intwenothor that the MPP tube has 120mm sticking out from the Webleys' barrel.

    That is FANTASTIC work thank you! Your photo shopping skills are nothing but amazing.

    Now I have to wonder what was going on with the pic I used. The parallax distortion must be incredible or it was a preproduction shot and they changed it later.

    Looks like I have some work to do.

    Keep up the great work.

    Thanks, Alan! I would love to have your technical drawing skills, because your drawings looks always amazing!

    Whenever is possible, I try to use lots of images to confront my templates/stencils to achieve the best results. But sometimes, in lack of good reference material, you have to rely on your intuition... and hope to get it right.
