You'll be waiting a while... LOL
My wife officially approved the Bob build this week. So I am at VERY early stages of research and ordering. Sooooo much to look at...

Nice Job on your build. I will send you some photos of mine as it comes together. I used a roman props mpp which but yours turned out really nice once you chromed it. Thanks for your help in selling my the rear greeblies.

just received my MPP from roman also. Can i ask, did you manage to fit the tube, inside the aluminium EE3?, if so how would you go about doing so.

I'm actually running into the same issue.

I'm going to try sanding down the inside of the barrel to allow the MPP to slide in easier.
Yes I did message Christopher aka fieldmarshal, he said it should fit, as he owns a Roman MPP also, but my guess is Roman’s first batch were a little oversized.

Here is my MPP from Roman. It’s a beautiful piece and I’m thrilled. As far as my EE-3 goes I noticed that the tube fits in the back of the barrel much better than the front. When I looked in the barrel I saw a small lip where the barrel tapers. It’s a super small lip but my plan is to bore out the front until it gets past the lip. Then I’m hoping the MPP tube will slide in with ease. I’ll keep you guys posted as my bit should be in today to make that happen.

On mine, I noticed the same thing. I first tried to dab a little wd40 inside the barrel but noticed that there was too much friction as I attempted to insert the to the correct depth so I ended up cutting the MPP back about 1 1/2 “ filed and sanded the edge and repeated the process.
Here are some photos of my ESB and ROTJ FM kits which I have almost completed. Just need the rear stock greeblies and sling rings.

I’m gonna have to try that out, thanks for the notice. Awesome weathering on those EE-3s, especially the mk1. Could I just add that your scope on the ESB EE-3, should be back to front. Aside from that, you’ve done a fantastic job.

So I got it to work. I ordered a 1.5” drill bit from Lowe’s and was able to bore out the barrel. Once that was done I used a Dremel bit to fine tune the barrel until the MPP tube could slide in but still with a snug fit. I then went back to the drill bit to smooth out any rough spots I may have made inside the barre. The MPP fits nicely and looks amazing. Overall time was maybe 2 hrs taking my time to file things back. I’m super happy overall.

Thanks for the reminder about the scope on the esb.

Managed to get the Roman MPP to fit the barrel, after hrs of sanding. Now it’s fits like a glove, to extra space for it to move :).
