I came across this forum kind of by accident, which is often the way I find the more interesting corners of the interweb. I inherited this Webley No. 1 Mark "I" flare gun from my uncle some time back, and I am just now researching what I have. I was quite surprised to find that this WWI antique has a modern (even futuristic) place in history as the inspiration/starting point for Boba Fett's blaster!
I am wondering if the good folks on this forum can tell me if this is a desirable version of the flare gun for creating an authentic blaster. My knowledge of Boba Fett costume authenticity is negligible, and my knowledge of WWI weaponry is only marginally better. At the moment, I am just trying to determine what I have. Eventually I would like to find a good home for this beautiful hand-cannon. It is a very solid piece of metalwork, and seems to be in fully functional condition:
Thanks much for any light you can shed,
