    Well not entirely correct. Take a look at this thread I started, see Heiland Type 2.
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=7725

    I found a Heiland that has the 7th oval as well as one that has 6 retangles and two holws in place of the 7th.

    Nothing is ever easy, they like to keeping you guessing.

    I guess I missunderstood. So that means that there is a forth version of the Heiland with six ovals, so it is simlar to the type 3 version in the other thread. Does it have the two small holes below the ovals on either side?

    Do you have any pictures that I could work from? I might as well try to come up with templates for all of them.

    Thanks.

    Here's what I just won on Ebay.... now please tell me this is useable for my ESB blaster. I know it's not a MPP, but the price seemed right

    I have a good idea that you can use to finish your blaster. Many people is looking for the flash barrel, and there is a better way to do it than using normal tubes or vacuum cleaner ones..

    If you look on ebay for fx lightsabers, they sell broken ones for a very ggod price. If you get the vader one (i think thats the one), you can take it apart, and get the metal tube. It has the holes, and as far as i know, it looks the same (if not let us now).


    Regards

    I have taken a Fx lightsaber (spare and broken one) and it works great. Same size.

    I Hope this will help you

    Does anyone know in which direction the Heiland tube is attached to the barrel ?

    The big hole on top ? Or at the bottom ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Despite the fact the prop used an MPP.
    One pic I saw shows the big hole on the left (looking down muzzle, hole at 3 0'clock).
