    Looking for scope help

    Hey all!

    Does anyone have a clearer, high resolution version of this shot, specifically the boxed red area. (In case anyone can't post a complete image, which is understandable)

    Re: Looking for scope help

    Yes! That's exactically what I meant! Art, I've said it before, I'll say it again. you ROCK!

    Again, this opens up more questions... :O What are the Knob looking things on the bottom of the scope mounts?!?! They look like black knobs, with a silvery base.

    Also, what is the right shape of the piece that the molex plugs and the scope are mounted to? Did anyone ever determine what this could have been made from? Christian's (MoW) rifle has some detail on the JB rifle that I've never seen before. Is this interpretation or is there some indication of this.

    The two pieces you are seeing at the bottom are the two halves of the clamp that goes around the barrel. As far as the block betwene the barrel and the scope, this is the best photo I can find at the moment.

    Don't use the hyper-firm blaster for ref.... it's an awsome blaster, but the details are all off when it comes to the scope mount. Stick with the production and screen used pics.

    i do believe the real deal for the scope mounts have been found. I dont personaly know what they are and the identity hasn't been publicly released yet. also for the sake of the guy who has them cant say his name
    they do look to be all one peice and look to be an expanding ring
    so the mystery will hopefuly soon be revealed

    Re: Looking for scope help







    First these are just my opinion, I am in no way an expert at much of anything let alone Boba. This is roughly how I think the mount went together. Chances are it’s much different from this and out side of the Molex connectors, I have no clue what the parts were made from. Also the upper 2 vertical pieces would be the base of the actual ASI scope ring. I’m just posting these up for conversation purposes only. These 3D images were created very quickly from my memory and I didn’t have any reference in front of me at the time, so I apologize if some of the details or proportions are off.

    Re: Looking for scope help

    Nah, but I have a "Frankenstein" scope assembled from some other scopes, with a little bit of modification. The Look of the elements are good, so I'm happy with it. I could buy a resin cast of an A.S.I, but I'd rather a real scope. It lends to the "real weapon" feel of it. The mount itself I'll have to build though, that's what I'm trying to do now.

    Re: Looking for scope help

    I'm searching high and low, with very little result. A few remotely similar things here and there but no cigar. Sheesh I'm gonna shoot myself trying to figure this out!

    BUMP! So far, nothing solid... I'm Trying to figure this one out, and not having a lot of success. Anybody else got any leads?

    Edit: Here's my illustration from the all existing reference I have. Maybe this might help anyone else to ID it.

    Re: Looking for scope help

    That is looking pretty good. I have been studing this part for some time know and you have captured what I have seen based on the exisiting reference material.
