    Now that I have the corrrect thread (sorry about the redundent post) I'm currently getting ready to mill a Zam scope but want to get it as accurate as possible. A friend of mine e-mailed me these dementions for the scope. Do they seem correct? Should I make it a solid piece? If so the mounting brackets would give me trouble.



    Any Ideas? I'm not a Zam Costume person, but really like the weapons she uses.

    I would make it so one of the two ends can be threaded on and off. Also the 12" length is pretty close to what is needed to fit right to most rifles that will be made on black powder rifle stocks.

    Thanks.. I could make it out of a solid piece of pipe stock, but making the ends and threading them would be better and less time consuming.

    That's my scope,and I don't remeber making that measured pic- but that doesn't mean I didn't The measurements seem about right though.

    Anyway, if you want the best way to get the measurements, I would suggest scaling a photo of the real prop up to the same size as the denix rifle. That is what I did.

    I also threaded the end pieces onto a ready made tube stock. I remember that it was smaller than 5/8 so 1/2" sounds about right. I had a real hard time getting them to screw onto the tube absolutely straight, but once the gun was all put together, it was hard to tell.

    Hey Cris,

    Yep that's you're scope! Around last November I had been talking to you as I was making a rifle for HothGirl and you passed along that pic with the measurements...I picked up some scope mounts from you too. Pretty much all that is left to finish for HothGirl's Zam Rifle are the scopes. Hope you don't mind I forwarded it to Tambo to have machined.
