    What about the mount between the grip and the stock? It is fairly thin. Does it have enough/any reinforcement or is it likely to need any?

    The problem has come from where the barrel meets the main body and grip area. But that porblem has been solved. In the stock bracket, there's some brass stock going straight through each one.

    I'll have some pics posted of what IrishFett got, complared to the new stuff that'll go out Saturday through Monday (the cuurent btach, plus two replacements).

    I've got one refitted, and it worked out great. The rest get refitted tonight. I'll also be casting more tonight! I'll even be dunking the ESB parts into silicone!
    In other words . . .busy night!

    Hey, you dont get much sleep do you?? I am excited to see those new pics along with the compared to the old ones, and with the repairs I see no problems ahead! Also I am honored I that I was able to help as much as I was able to. Take care and once one blaster starts to appear to be two...it might just be a good time to go get some sleep.

    Ok got mine in today. I am with Irishfett the painting is amazing. My scope seemed to be ok no droopage but could see wanting to put a stabilizer in it. My biggest problem is it is a little wobbly at the handle. Looks like you addressed that already. If I put my gun on my hip it sags to the right. I also agree the trigger guard is very flimsy. Overall its nice. It is very light. I would like to get the wobbly issued fixed though.

    Re: STUNT ROTJ Fett rifles, finally! Big pics.

    I visited Hotshop this weekend, and got a first hand look at the lengths hes going through to create these rifles. He is a very talented guy, and more importantly very friendly, honest and straightforward.

    He couldnt say enough good things about how appreciative he is when people give him good solid criticism of the product.

    Because this is a 'new' item for him, hes being very patient and careful. it would be very easy for him to for lack of a better term 'cave in' to the pressure of doing the same thing everyone else is doing, but he is really interested in a foam, unbreakable, but believable prop.

    I think if we all have patience, this will really pay out.

    Thanks for inviting me over brother.

    Re: STUNT ROTJ Fett rifles, finally! Big pics.

    Thanks for coming down! It's always great to get outside opinions and advice! I've really been happy with the amount of advice and new ideas I've been getting. Definatly the complete oppostie of what I've experienced on other forums . .Niiiiccccee!!! So, here's the updated comparisons, and how the new stuff looks. THe first, is the over dramatic bend the first six had. Not exactly something that would intimidate your bounty . . .

    Here's the new model with less bend, but enough for trooping mishaps, like smacks in to the wall, and giant con nerds who don't look where there going (saw that at Marcon!).




    The scope has had simple plastic stock added to it, to make it much more rigid, yet supple enough to take a hit. Note how a freshh cast one looks much straighter than an older one.




    Lastly, a small piece of plastic stock has been added to the trigger gaurd, also allowing bend, but not as blatantly flimsy as the old ones were.
    So there ya go! Got 8 going into paint, and am trying to cast up two more tonight!

    Any other ideas would be awesome!!
    Thanks!

    Re: STUNT ROTJ Fett rifles, finally! Big pics.

    Pm'd ya back.
    It looks like outof the first six, all aregoing to have to come back.
    Darth Schoeder, yours was returned to me, and it had the incorrect address on it, so your safe there.
    Wetokle, yours should be to you in a day or two, take a look at it, and if it's what you think you'll be getting from what we talked about, send 'er right back.

    Once they're here, the replacement will go out (unless we've spoken about another arrangement).

    I'm on track to get ten-thirteen updated blasters out the door on the Saturday-Monday dates I had mentioned. If I can get more out this week, I will do so (that is actually a small 'if', I should get up to 15 done).

    After those twenty are out, I'm taking a week of to prep some Ghostbuster props, and then we'll pick back up with the ESB, and if anyone still wants a ROTJ, those will be available anytime.

    Thanks! Any additional question/suggestions are welcome!!

    This has realy been awesome guys! It really speaks for the community!

    Although I did not purchase one of these blasters I have been following this thread with great interest. I would like to congratulate Hotshot on your commitment to providing a quality item and working with requests, suggestions, and changes in order to please your customers.

    This has been an example of great customer service and integrity to be willing to change a product to satisfy the buyers requests. Great job.

    I look forward to your progress on the ESB blaster.

    I'm with MandalorFett and tk9950 completely on this. I've been watching this really closely because I'm hoping to get one of your ESB blasters. And seeing how you handled all of this I'm completely sold on getting one of your ESB's.

    Hey, wanted to holler and say that I got up to 13 blasters cast . . . I had one bad pull, so I'm running low on supplies, wondering if I'll be able to get all the way to 15. We'll see . . .

    I'd realllllllyyyy like to get all 20 out in time for Clone Wars, in case any of you guys will be trooping, so keep your fingers crossed!!

    Ain't this a pretty picture??? 10 untrimmed waiting for finishing. 2 are on the table getting trimmed and basecoated in dark grey tonight. Another addition, instead of rod installs on the scope, I'll be 'glueing' them to the main body wth the nerf foam. It will bond to itself nicely. Thanks!
