Ooooh i'll take a grip! ...and a stock bracket. I can wait till they are both ready though.
No rush buddy!
That looks awesome!
Realy realy nice!!! Cant wait to get it in hands. Great work HS!!!
recieved word that some guns are officially in metal.
Man oh Man...
Hey man, not gonna need that bracket and grip anymore. Found a set on E-bay. Thought it was authentic genuine, but it may be a replica...either way though, i got a set and wont need these. Just wanted to let you know!
How much would the d bracket and grip be worth!
Progress as of 11/7/2012
So progress is slow on these and I appologize but in the end I think we will all have a very high quality product. I have two cleaned up guns in my shop ready to be fitted with hardware while 4 are still at the foundry needing welding and initial clean up. Several stragler guns are still in wax.
In order to move the project along I will be going to the foundry on my day off to 'gate' the wax guns. With that being said, if anybody wants to jump on board and have thier waxes in process - NOW would be a great time!!!!
This will get them in progress. As of now I will do my best to get at least the first four out before Christmas. The rest will follow soon after.
*** If anybody truely need thier gun before Christmas then please PM me! I will move it along faster and get it through the process*****
ok... the pictures!
that sounds good cause i have to hand some bunda over to mojo for some ali ears for my gmh, and will give me some time to get the sorted as I want to replace the grip and bracket on my esb blaster, just dont like the resin, even though i am doing rotj, cheers
Hi all. I'm Hand-Schaub's woodworker on this project. I'm making the Webley replica gun stocks. So here's an update. Yesterday I got a beautiful piece of 2" walnut from my hardwood dealer.
And then I spent some time laying out the stocks and rough cutting the shapes on the band saw. The walnut is hard and dense, so that bandsaw blade is pretty cashed in.
Next I'll rough cut the shape some more, then onto shaping, cutting the slot for the gun handle, and finish sanding. More soon.
Awesome! I can supply you with a bracket so the fit is right.
Met with Canned Ham today. Great talking about Fett and props! The stocks will be AWESOME. I gave him the bracket to fit the stocks perfectly. One step closer!
Hey bud...i may still be interested in the grip. shoot over a PM with a price..thanks bud!
A few progress shots to show the gateing process. Lots of work, time and effort goes into these!
Hi all. I'm making the stocks on this project for Hand-Schaub. When I'm done with the ones for his castings, I'll have a few extra for sale. These will be solid, high grade walnut, based on a real Webley and Wizard of Light's plans. The recess in the side will be shaped and finished to fit the Webley handle. I'll finish them with an authentic dark walnut stain, but I'll leave the specific weathering to you. These stocks really make the gun. I even put one on my kid's Hasbro blaster, painted the plastic gun dark pewter, and weathered it and the results were great. There are a few pictures earlier in this thread of the stock.
$75 plus $15 shipping (in the lower 48). You can PayPal it to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll open my own thread for this shortly.

I ordered the M20 patina today and metal wax. This will be a differnet color treatment than before. The black will be richer and should hold up better. I am also looking at sealing the guns beyond the metal wax.
I should be picking up some finished guns this week which means some final products are in the near future!
