Currently I am working on a price quote from Dark Energy Creations aka. dmachinist on the RPF to make a run of high quality full metal Westar-34's using WOF blueprints and the detailed pictures that are on RebelScum.com. But I need to get enough people on board before I can make this happen. Right now I'm Just gauging interest to see if it's doable. In order to make the price reasonable (below $650 per set) I need to get at least 25 sets made. The more that I have made the cheaper the price per set will be. So please just post a reply if your interested. They are currently finishing up a run of DL-44's so it will probably be another week or two before I get the final price quotes. I will keep updating this post as I get more information and price quotes.
In an attempt to keep the price down they will come in a kit form they will be very well machined aluminum, however to get that chrome look that the MR's have they will require some fine sanding and polishing. Which I can do for you if so desired but it will cost a little bit more. I'll have to see how much work it will be to finish them before I can quote my price for the finishing work.
I just received the price quote $600 for a pair $350 if you just want one. but for this price I / we will need to get 50 pairs manufactured.
All parts would be individually machined, parts will be made from top quality solid billet aluminum, with a raw machined finish, fitting/finishing/assembly required.
The down side is that he can't do them until he upgrades some of his machinery (mostly just for doing the handle and counterbalance). which means production wouldn't start till Fall.
The other possible killer would be licensing issues which he is checking on to see if there is a way around them. (he has to protect his business).
Well it looks like this is progressing forwards. He is going to make a sample set of parts some time within the next couple of months so that he / we have pictures to post that will show the kit and hopefully how it will all fit together. I will post pics as soon as he sends them to me. Thanks for everybody's interest so far.
Update: The parts making process has started it should be another month or two before they are done he is going to send me pics as he completes the parts.
Update: the production has started here is a pic of some of the unfinished parts they still need to cut the grooves in the power knob and power regulator.
Update: I am expecting more pics in January, and expecting kits to be ready some time in February.
