    That's what I use since none of us actually have the right sidearm.

    Wow that is real looking!! Manufacturers could never get away with making a light gun that accurate nowadays. Don't you think our society has become so over protective these days?? personally, I think it started with importance of wearing a bicycle helmet and removable toy rockets... its called natural selection. I think we are doing to much to make everything so safe that we are upsetting the balance. I dont know... call me jaded.. anyhoo....GREAT FIND!!!

    I think he knows that. Like MandalorFett said, thats what some people use since basically noone has the real speargun.

    I think we "know" it's a speargun, but on what make and model it is, it's all up in the air. I remember Gonzo posted a scan of a speargun catalog from the 60's or so, and none really matched up.

    it's not up in the air.
    i just looked up the topic were "another member" came through and posted his findings. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=25607

    but for whatever reason his responses can no longer be found in the topic. must have been deleted. there is still another website showing the correct speargun. i'm not gonna say more. other than the real piece was identified.

    that's true nobody else reported finding another one yet...

    it's not close to my heart. but i wonder why you keep saying it's up in the air, when the piece has been identified!?

    on 5/17/08 after pics of the identified piece had been shown you had this to say:"Thanks for sharing the pics. That's a great piece of the Fett arsenal."

    so i guess you can see why your new statements have me wondering. anybody can use what they want for their sidearm and be happy with it. i posted an incorrect theory and was delighted to find out that i was incorrect and can now search for the correct piece though. cause as far as i'm concerned, i'm after accuracy.

    Its still alittle up in the air. the only thing we know so far, thanks to SS's research, is that the correct sidearm is a pneumatic speargun that was produced by Technisub. we dont know the correct name for the model, or the year it was produced. and acording to SS's research it seams that there were more than just one model that used parts of the speargun. he said hes only ever seen one that was 100% correct and the other versions had the wrong barrel parts

    yup he said that. i'm reading the statement in a way, that he owns the correct piece and has shown pics thereof, the rest i understand more like a "warning" not to "accidentally" purchase one that doesn't match in some areas. i could be wrong with my interpretation of his statemet. but that's what i'm reading.

    ok so i do not think anyone would be interested, and btw thank you for the info and other thread Volkrec, and what was the ESB speargun used? After reading everything on the other, I noticed that pictures were beng sent privately, so I did not catch the speargun used.
    I do not want to open another can of worms but I agreed with you 100% about the info being shared in a public forum, I mean why be here?

    pictures had actually been posted. but what happened, i don't know, and i don't want to get into it. i'm not into politics. only trying to build an accurate costume therefore gathering all info i can find for my project. some people have their reasoning for postuing something or not. i have said it before, if i have info that aids others in building a better costume, i share.

    the way i see it, if you find something that works, go with it....if you find the ACTUAL item used, koodos for you...we are here to support one another, help those in need, give each other ideas on saving money, ya know...who cares if you have the actual item used on the movie...are YOU going to be in the movie...probably not...so if you like something for your costume, then that is the accurate version if you ask me...

    i don't think anybody ever mentioned wanting to be in the movie. why is everybody striving to get a fett that looks like the one in the movies then if we are supposed to just use anything? as i have mentioned above, be happy if you think your costume works for you. but if you're looking for accuracy, some stuff does not work. nobody i think will ever own the screen used movie props, so we have to live with copies and we can look for actual pieces used to make those props in the days. and i prefer to use the same stuff that the prop builders bought and modified to use in the movies. and to those that just want get a "certain look" without using screen accurate stuff. good luck. be happy. everybody is entitled to their own opinion.

    excellent, volk, well said...that is all i am saying...this thread just began to feel like a bickering station, and that is not what i was intending when i was creating it...i was just proud of myself for finding one of these game systems that had a pistol that some have used here for their sidearm...

    Yes, a very similar piece to the original has been identified, although we don't have definitive pics of the original to compare with. At this time the posted Technisub is about the closest yet.

    I only found out this new info 2 weeks ago, and my previous statement you posted above was on 5/17/08. At that time, I thought it was "the one."

    volkerc, I admire your tenacity in finding the most accurate pieces. I'm sure you'll continue to add to the discovery and discussion of new found parts.

    FettDad, sorry if I was a part of derailing the thread. As we discussed, I like this Monteverdi sidearm and have one too. I'll be using it for my Llats Ward suit.
