I think GBH brings up a good point, we need a side-by-side pic comparison of Pub photos/screen shots, the Heiland, and the MPP....virtually the same angles in every comparsion..............any takers?
Trust me I want this settled too.

well from what i hear there are 2 or more versions of mpps with different shrouds. maybe its from one of those other variations
and i think thats what i started this thread for was to compare the flash's with the photos of whats on the gun
This thread is now reopened.
Please go back to and read this thread again.

I don't know if there's any sort of mark or bump inside the MPP tube because I'm not taking mine apart to find out.
The second hole with the red arrow is the top hole of the trigger/button assembly. It's for a slotted screw that holds the black bar onto the side of the MPP.
BTW - similar holes are on the Heiland and can be seen above in the rotated scans of the 2-cell.
PS - I should have been a little clearer about the 2-cell. The Heiland 2-cell is too short for a lightsaber and too short compared to a real MPP --- BUT, for a Fett rifle this doesn't matter because the tube goes into the barrel of the Webley (you just have a little less inside the flare gun). There is no cutting involved.

I had a 2 Cell Heiland with the same holes, there was a small black strip screwed on through those 2 holes, with some sort of dial/adjustment knob on it, not saying that is a 2 cell Heiland by the way, just chiming in, love to see this cleared up
So does anyone know the length of the tube sticking out? I saw that WOF has a template for the hole patterns of both types, and he also has the dimensions of the MPP, but its the dimensions of the tube, not how it fits in the gun. Here is the link:
I am very confident about this. I have taken screenshots of ESB, scaled the width of the tube, and measured the length of which it sticks out of the blaster.
That is the method that I had heard someone else do. They came up with 4.85 inches or something like that, (just under 5 inches). So I would agree that this is probably the correct length. I am actually kind of surprised that there isn't more info out there about this weapon?!? I should be receiving my sidewinder kit in the mail soon, and would like to build it as accurate as possible...short of buying a MPP if that is the correct tube.
Does the 5" include where the scope mount clamp sits on the flash? Is that still debated?
The 5" is where you see exposed flash tube.
Thanks for the info GCNgamer128. It still surprises me that more people dont have info on this. Maybe its because I love weapons, but the blaster and the sidearm are some of my favorite parts.
So do we all "agree" that the MPP is correct? ...and is that just everyone settling with MPP because we cant find any other info to say otherwise? Im not saying its not, but it seems like because of lack of more info, everyone now is certain the MPP is correct. Im just saying it is still not a 100% absolutely sure thing?
Just wondering, was there only one prop blaster or more than one? Could the pics be of different blasters? Art, Tyler D., RS, SS, Spidey?
Just one blaster.
It's absolutely 100% the MPP. No way it's a Heiland.
I've seen some photos that people leave some of the guts inside. Is that correct? The photo directly above looks liek it's been gutted? I kind of like the "look" of the inside. Is there a "correct" inside?
looks like its 100% gutted.
that's what I thought. Thanks for the confirmation BFS_1
In a famous picture it looks like there is a white dot/greeblie in the center of the barrel:
And MandalorFett has very nicely interpreted that in his rifle:
But there is nothing there. It's the round hole on the backside of the barrel:
Yea, I saw MandalorFett's. I really like the look of the tip. It clearly looks like there is something inside that ESB shot too... I don't know.. perhaps it's artistic expression at this point.
My Heiland (I know... perhaps not exactly accurate, but it's all I've got) has a cool looking "gut" to it, but the center is a spring. I could add a rod to it, but I don't know...
yea, that's what mine looks like too. So you have a spring as well? I thought about trying to take the "guts" apart and replace the spring with a metal rod (like MandalorFett's).
looks to me to just be the larger hole playing tricks with the eyes
Here are some blueprints I drafted up awhile back based on the MR MPP. Each face is based on a clockwise rotation. T=Top and B=Bottom to give a orientation location.
