    The slowest Pulse Rifle WIP ever! (pic heavy)

    Alright, I got some parts out of storage: The stock is a very tight fit over the upper receiver. I‘ll need to bend the sides outward a little bit, but haven‘t had any luck (I tried hammering a wooden wedge between the sides and left it in there a few days, but I think the wood was too soft)...

    The slowest Pulse Rifle WIP ever! (pic heavy)

    Well, it took quite a while to source all the parts (most importantly the SPAS parts), and then I was constantöy swapping parts and improving it. But yes, no alternative to make a moving bolt caused me to shelf this for quite a while. Bit now it‘s back on! :cool: Staying with the all-steel...

    The slowest Pulse Rifle WIP ever! (pic heavy)

    Hi there! I thought I‘d post this here too. So about 15 years ago, I decided I wanted to build a Pulse Rifle. After much research, I knew I wanted a full metal replica as close to a real steel as possible (but without the hassle of real steel). So airsoft it was. Took me a few years to source...

    Limited Run M41-A Aliens (1986) PULSE RIFLE Poster

    These need to go, I‘m moving soon. :) The current price is the lowest it‘s ever been (almost half of the original price), and with shipping and paypal fees, it‘s almost down to the printing costs. So get them while I still have some left.

    Sterling SMG Restoration

    I've heard this before. But where does that information come from? Also, does that mean that they painted over the wrinkle finish with flat black (meaning it's still "wrinkled") or did they strip the finish and paint them black with a smooth finish? Also, still others claim that all Sterlings...

    Sterling SMG Restoration

    Sorry for reviving this thread, but I didn‘t want to create a new one for the same question. Sooo... is there any consensus about whether the ANH Sterlings were smooth or wrinkled? That thread on whitearmot.net that Sith Lord mentioned has some interesting views (I couldn‘t find another thread...

    Help me finish my Han Solo ANH Hero blaster! - Hensoldt claws are off!

    Hm, that's the Birchwood one, right? I can't seem to get that anywhere around here. Will have to inform myself why that is, there might be shipping restrictions... BTW, look what I found on my doorstep today! The Field Marshall scope mount and bull barrel! It's beautiful! It does have some...

    Help me finish my Han Solo ANH Hero blaster! - Hensoldt claws are off!

    Well, it helped some... But it seems I'll have to sand the rest off. :cry Does that mean I'll have to get all the bluing off? Or can I just blue the sanded areas? I'm guessing the bluing won't match that way, right? Cheers! Roman

    I'll see what the results are with the solder wick, otherwise I'll try this. Alright, I just ordered a bunch of parts. A Field Marshall ANH scope mount as well one of his bull barrels he had lying around. I'm also waiting to hear back from Todd's costumes regarding greeblies, and I also asked...

    Help me finish my Han Solo ANH Hero blaster! - Hensoldt claws are off!

    As far as I know, this is the only way. I used a small gas torch, the ones used for cooking (mmmh, crème brûlée. :D ). I didn't have to knock the claws off with a hammer, I used oven mitts and pulled them right off the scope, although I had to use quite a bit of force. Not sure if you could...

    Hm, I never knew such a thing existed. Underneath the solder, it almost looks like the bluing is intact... Welp, I just ordered some solder wick, it should arrive on Thursday. I‘ll post my results as soon as I try it. Cheers! Roman
