    Merged: Pre-pro sling gun kits

    A while back some one was selling Pre-pro sling gun kits. Who is this person and does he have anymore? If not does anyone else have one that they would be willing to part with?

    I was wondering if anyone has ever drawn up plans for the sling-gun? I have the photos in the Star Wars Chronicles, is there any other good source of reference for this weapon. Thanks.

    I believe GA offers kits of this gun. Someone here may be able to help you out, I know one was up for sale not long ago...

    Yes I had posted not too long ago about it. There is someone on here who makes them. Wait long enough and he will contact you.

    I got mine on the mail today. He said it was going to take like 14 days it took like 5. I am really pleased with it. Yes it needed some work, edges trimmed up a little bit, but I knew that going into it so everything was cool. Now what I want to see is how some of you who have this have painted it.

    Is this the pistol you're talking about?



    It's actually mine. GA did have it at one point, but I've been asked about it enough recently that I went ahead and made a nice set of molds so I can offer it myself. I used the CHRONICLES book and a great photo from a Calender (of all things) for reference.

    The above picture is one of the castings that's been primed. I personally like it better than the one used in EMPIRE, I think it just looks a little cooler.

    I'm doing a ROTJ suit, but already have a sling gun that I want to carry along with my EE-3 just cause the gun is so cool. What's the best way to carry this bad boy? Holster like some of the action figures? Slung over the sholder on a strap?

    Over the shoulder with a strap on the stock just like the PrePro suit it came from.

    I might be intrested but I think the little trigger button should be on the front of the gun not on the back.

    Merged: Re: Pre-Pro Sling Based on Action Figure

    The trigger position is odd, I agree. It is based on the action figure and pre-pro photos. A thumb trigger. Weird, like on a joystick. The other sling being offered on TDH is very nice, awesome actually...it is like the difference between Maroon and Cabernet used on ROTJ gauntlets...hmmmm. Very similar, but different.

    I'm looking for a pre-pro blaster, anyone with some info please contact me.

    Re: Official Pre-Pro "Sling Gun" Thread

    Looky at mine. It is like the one the White Fett has. UZI-based...

    Here is my Blaster...



    Another shot...



    I based it on an UZI, which was the weapon he was holding in the white fett pic. I beefed up the barrel a bit and got rid of the silly metal stick and circuit board. Let me know what you think.
