As far as the pics go, those were the same ones that were on the other thread (referenced earlier on this one). I'm still stumped on those pics as far as the clamps go....anyone?

Just to note: the clamps I found did not open to the correct diamete - too large for the front and too small for the rear.

The band on them is 19.25mm wide and 1.3mm thick.

The tightest they'll close to is around 40mm or so in diameter.

bobasfett,I agree with your thinking a tall dovetail mount would be more accurate.I did numerous searches on Brownells,but came up with so many entries that I got tired of looking.Did,or do you have a specific part number for the tall mount?

Nope...none. I looked at a few of those pics again, and I'm not really sure about it being a tall mount or not....it looks like it may be an optical allusion, based on where the scope clamps to the rail. I'm still searching for it though.....of course I will post a link should I find it.

Okay guys....got the Norma clamps in and well, they are just too big for our project. I think if we could have found them with a thinner band and smaller bolt, it would have made a difference. Oh well....I'll try to post some pics by tomorrow. Onward with the clamp search!!!! :)

Those pics are very helpful. Thank you for posting them. What brand are the scope rings? Are they the original rings that came with the scope? If so what scope are you using.

Thanks for the help, your input is appreciated.

Duh!

These are an old pair of Studebaker clamps that I always thought looked decent. To bad they are to damn big... :(

Those are the kind I was hoping these Morma clamps would be. As promised, here are some pics painted up. They are a little wide I think and just too bulky. I pretty much get a band width of about 18mm when scaling and these are 20mm. Anyway, here they are.....

Around your scope are rings that attach to the scope mounts. Are those stock? Did they come with the scope or are the crafted? Thanks.

Duh!

Hey Duh...they are an older style scope ring that I guess was available on Crossman scopes among others. They are a little hard to come by, so keep your eyes open. Good luck!!

I’m working on my Fett ROTJ blaster and wondering what the scope mounting blocks look like. Anybody got a pic or a sketch so I can make myself a set? Or is it a found part that can be bought?

OK, lots of looks but no help, and here I thought you guys new all there was to know about the Fett man.

Anyhow, I was able to get some help on the local level with this and was told I could share this. So here is a quick print a friend of mine had on what the ROTJ scope blocks might look like or at least something that will work fine.




So can anyone else give any more details?

Thanks guys.

DCB, I have started making a few sets just off of this drawing and I will have a set with your name on them no problem. Oh and free of charge as well, just need your address again.


Been talking to Brak's and looking back at my Fett ref CD, lots of good info there to scale from as always. These sets want be dead on, but real world useable none the less.

Those look just like the dovetail scope rails I'm using, just twice the height.

Yup, it looks like my buddy just drew up a standard mount with a V groove in it, then scaled the overall sizes to the plain blocks that are on the ROTJ blaster.

After a closer look at the Fett CD pics, the original blocks look to just have flat sides with no grooves. So maybe jsut just a square block. But this will work even better so the scope dosent just work it self loose with out haveing a lip to hang onto.
