Working on an ESB blaster build. Can any on tell me how long the barrel of the Webley. Is 7.5 correct?

And the flash tube is 4.75 inches?

Thanks

Alan, I don't agree. I looked at this in some detail a while back as part of the barrel mount found part discussion and I made it that the MPP tube should extend about 120 mm from the end of the Webley barrel (which is about 4 3/4"). That 120 mm includes the section which is hidden (or obscured) by the front barrel mount. Unfortunately I'm not capable of your standard of excellent drawing but I did have access to the gallery and my own real found parts (Webley/MPP etc) to come to this conclusion.

When I saw this thread I thought of something I'd seen before. Low and behold:

Well, there has been some disagreement on this issue in the past, but I can only go on what I have learned from the reference pics.

Attached is a comparison shot I did of my drawing and this classic picture. So I feel pretty good about these dimensions, but I am always looking for new info and fresh ideas.

The dimension you referenced is what I believe was used for the original Hyperfrim ESB Webley build.

Back in 2006 I was still deep in research mode on the Webley and it wasn't until I received Sidewinder's first Webley kit was I able to lock down the details for the Webley drawings.

Always looking for feedback to keep me honest.

Using 3 images from the ESB stills I got a pretty good comparison between different takes, and it seems that all the major parts are/were in the same place, more exactly there were no major changes in position or order:

And here is a quick comparison of Alan's drawing with one of the images:

I agree with intwenothor that the MPP tube has 120mm sticking out from the Webleys' barrel.

That is FANTASTIC work thank you! Your photo shopping skills are nothing but amazing.

Now I have to wonder what was going on with the pic I used. The parallax distortion must be incredible or it was a preproduction shot and they changed it later.

Looks like I have some work to do.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks, Alan! I would love to have your technical drawing skills, because your drawings looks always amazing!

Whenever is possible, I try to use lots of images to confront my templates/stencils to achieve the best results. But sometimes, in lack of good reference material, you have to rely on your intuition... and hope to get it right.
