    Mar 2, 2005, 10:19 AM - Gauntlet Details #1

    Greetings again everyone, I have yet another armor question for all the super Fetts out there. I just received the pivotal piece for my Mandalorian armor to begin so I need some specs from you all if I could. I need to know the following in no particular order

    How long is the left gauntlet?
    How much does the add-ons (laser, and other assorted pieces) weight
    How well do those wonderful things stay in place?

    I am currently modifying a marker to mount in a gauntlet (replacing the resin laser) and I need to know how much weight I need to cut off to keep it from being too top heavy. I also need to know where to buy some sturdy/well made gauntlets so if you point me in the right direction I would, of course, be most greatful

    I couldn't tell you any dimensions or weights at the moment but I will tell you that I've attached foam inside the tops of the guantlets to keep them tight on my wrists and they usually stay just fine.

    Do yourself a favor & get a set from Chuck (ruffkintoy)

    His are sweet.
    (this is where I usually post pics of mine/chucks. But I figure we are all sick of seeing them)

    Mike,
    If you sell yours, drop me a line. I may be interested in them, for my first set.
