    Rubies Blaster Mod

    Hey Guys,
    It's been quite a while since I posted anything. I am still s-l-o-w-l-y progressing towards Jango. With my Asok helmet out of the way, I decided to work on a blaster. Since I can't find any MRs, and I am not a machinist, I figured I would try to mod a Rubies and see how it turned out. here are a couple pics. Basically I replaced the barrel with a piece of PVC and added the brass rod and some weights in the handle to balance it out. I still need to weather it. Not sure I like the color of the grips either. Might redo them. Any feedback is appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Thanks guys. I would love to find a chrome paint that really looks chrome. For that matter, I really wish I had access to a metal shop where I could machine it out of aluminum, but you do what you can.

    That is a nice mod. I have seen some nice rubies repaints but the barrel change takes it up a notch.

    Those Westar's look great. Makes me wanna think about getting a pair for my Kal Skirata costume. They only cose like $10 each on amazon so they're cheap in case they break.
