    Merged: Rifle Scope???

    Okay.. I'm trying to decide what I should do.. either make a close to the real thing (close is the key word) of the scope that is used on the MOM rifle.. or go out and by the real thing... well close to it. So if anyone of you have bought a scope... and lets say you got it at Walmart.. what type or name.. or model should I be looking for.. or be asking for??? Any pictures and or sites that might sell something close that you have used for your own rifle would be cool to see. Thanks

    Tasco scopes have been a suggested standby by quite a number of propmakers for the rifle kits out there. Hope this helps!

    Yea, go with a Tasco 4X15. It is around $10 after tax at Wally World and works great. Good Luck

    Some Wal-Marts still have the $6.99 version but most of the Wal-Marts around here don't stock them any longer. Sports Authority had the Tasco on display but when I asked for a couple they handed me Bushnell's. I also ordered a couple of Tascos off an internet site and they sent me Bushnell's instead as well. Don't know whats up with that but the one Wal-Mart that used to stock them here quit stocking them about 3 weeks ago. They said they were not able to get them any more. The Bushnell's are exactly the same though so no worries.

    Priced the scoop here in Canada... at Walmart.. and its $35.00.... ouch... well ouch since I think I can make mine out of wood and stuff.. to look pretty close to the real thing. Anyway... wish me luck...lol.. and I cannot remember who said it.. but they said the best part of a Fett suit is making it yourself.. and I guess that is a way to look at it and appreciate it more... rather then thinking on all the money spent on it.... I guess... lol

    This is the scope that Lordsandy on the RPF found...




    It is an ASI 4x20. If you find a source, please share. Because this scope has been ellusive to say the least.

    That sure looks like its a match. Does ASI stand for anything? I can't find that scope mfg on the internet. Would be worth spending some time looking for.

    Merged: ASI Fett Scope

    Well, I have been told for a LONG time that the Fett blaster is an ASI 4X20 scope. Well, I finally managed to snag one and hope to settle this theory once and for all.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...EBWA%3AIT&rd=1

    As soon as I get the scope in (gonna be several weeks) I will post full comparisons. I hope my search for a good Fett scope is finally over, but we will see...

    Yeah,I've been holding off getting a scope for fear that it will be difinitively ID'd soon.I've always heard the ASI thing too Braks so it'll be nice to find out once and for all......and if so a $16 grab is a bargain

    Not to be a doubting Thomas, but what about this one that DCB won? Not only does it look like the same one, but it is a Webley scope, you know, like Webley and Scott, or is this an ASI scope?

    One of mine had that also, ita a snap to remove and add the correct rings.

    Plus as a bonus I think it is the correct mount for the Nostromo Alien pistol!

    As promised here are the compares. Just want to point out, as far as I know this is LORDSANDY's discovery. I don't want anyone to think I made this discovery. All credit goes to him.

    As you may notice the little angled plate at the bottom of the scope ring, that grips the scope mount is a bit short on mine. Fortunately this is a removeable part and I can easily have some machined to the right dimensions. Also, I apologize that some of the scaling and angles are a bit off.

    I'd say we have a winner.
