    mid last year "steveday" and a bunch of us poured over pics and he had some photo enhancing/helping software that really gave alot more to the pics.Alas it's been at least six month's and I've been so far out of the loop,I couldn't remember what the consensus was if my life depended on it.I might have saved the pics.I'll look and see what I can see.

    I have some sample clamps ordered from Norma. They should be here in a few days....I'll keep everyone posted on them when I get them assembled and detailed.

    Also, lets keep the discussion open concerning the clamps even having a bolt at all. I think this is definately worth talking about, especially if we can get those new pics....

    Thanks

    I just found this thread - it's been such a long time since I found a good one to contribute in.

    Last year I found a pair of stainless steel clamps that were apparently from a Cessna aircraft, but after contacting an enthusiasts group, they could not verify the source.

    Anyway, the clamps (pictured below), are the type I believe were used on the front of the barrel and possibly on the rear as well - though the rear clamp also looks like a "crimp type" clamp, which has been crimped with pliers rather than the special tool.



    At some time I'm going to run the new images through some Photoshop filters and see if I can get any clearer information from them - at the moment I'm building a nice solid workbench to make props on

    Great!!! What is the width of your clamps?? I've been doing some rough scaling and it appears the Fett clamps are around 18mm....

    Thanks

    Steve,
    I found some of the "old" pics that were filtered in our old thread last year.I usually save everything that is good for building reference.If you'd like I can email 'em to you to make some comparisons.

    Sure, I'd love to see some extra pics. Anything to try to get this as accurate as possible.

    Thanks

    kick ass job on the ESB blaster. Lokks great, I'm doing something similiar, I don't have the cash right now for a nice and neat kit like everyone else. What I'm working on is more of a custome EE-3 modeled after the ESB rifle, keep up the great work, I'm impressed!

    Still have not gotten my clamps from Norma yet, but I have been getting questions on the scope rail I used as well as the clamp covers.

    I got my clamp covers from Home Depot, but I cannot find them on their online catalog. So I am including a website of a manufacturer that has them. I believe they were either 3/8 or 1/2" diameter, so pic both up since they are cheap. Again, I didn't use any heat on these!!

    The scope rail I used was the flat dovetail stock, part number 080-032-120. Good luck!!

    As far as the pics go, those were the same ones that were on the other thread (referenced earlier on this one). I'm still stumped on those pics as far as the clamps go....anyone?

    Just to note: the clamps I found did not open to the correct diamete - too large for the front and too small for the rear.

    The band on them is 19.25mm wide and 1.3mm thick.

    The tightest they'll close to is around 40mm or so in diameter.

    bobasfett,I agree with your thinking a tall dovetail mount would be more accurate.I did numerous searches on Brownells,but came up with so many entries that I got tired of looking.Did,or do you have a specific part number for the tall mount?

    Nope...none. I looked at a few of those pics again, and I'm not really sure about it being a tall mount or not....it looks like it may be an optical allusion, based on where the scope clamps to the rail. I'm still searching for it though.....of course I will post a link should I find it.

    Okay guys....got the Norma clamps in and well, they are just too big for our project. I think if we could have found them with a thinner band and smaller bolt, it would have made a difference. Oh well....I'll try to post some pics by tomorrow. Onward with the clamp search!!!!

    Those pics are very helpful. Thank you for posting them. What brand are the scope rings? Are they the original rings that came with the scope? If so what scope are you using.

    Thanks for the help, your input is appreciated.

    Duh!

    These are an old pair of Studebaker clamps that I always thought looked decent. To bad they are to damn big...

    Those are the kind I was hoping these Morma clamps would be. As promised, here are some pics painted up. They are a little wide I think and just too bulky. I pretty much get a band width of about 18mm when scaling and these are 20mm. Anyway, here they are.....
