I just want to give you guys an update on the parts. I placed the order for all the stainless steel spheres to produce 25 Bowcasters for this run. Even that I haven't received all the deposits and that there is only 12 people signed already I had to order these since these spheres are made overseas and takes 6 weeks to get here. I did the same for The Force Awakens Bowcaster run. My local sheet metal shop will start producing the aluminum insert that goes in the frame where the side plates are attached and the side plates. The spincast molds for the camera knobs, discs and dials will be done in the next couple of weeks and I will post pictures of those. The material aluminum blocks for the frames arrived to the orther machine shop this past Friday and the in the next couple of weeks I will have the first bowcaster frame. I already have Jawajawa827 parts and I will assemble the bowcaster with all the parts. I know some of you don't have the scopes. Field Marshal offers the Single Point scopes, I will see if I can have the Model 7 scopes made of aluminum too, I will need a list of people who doesn't have the scopes yet who want to be in that list. A few prods/bows will be made to take pictures with the frames. Once the stainless steel spheres arrive all the prods/bows will be finished. Triggers will and rear clips will be machined too at the same time.

Is possible to get just the balls? I already have an original Horton Magnum with an intact prod, but I would like some stainless steels balls as they would be more durable than the rubber ones.

Sure, as soon I receive the stainless steel spheres I will let you know. My local machine shop will do the openings for each sphere. There is a half aluminum circle with a step for each sphere which allows a better fit to the prod.

Depending upon the price I'd be interested in these as well.

Happy Sunday. Thank you for your words and prayers. Today is been three weeks since my wife was transferred to the ICU and ten days since she was connected to a ventilator. She is fighting for her life and in God's hands. We have faith she will recover, I believe in miracles and there are so many people praying for her now.

Here are some pictures of the spincast pewter discs, knobs, dials, I used the very same original camera parts, knobs etc to be able to create true replicas. The side plates will be made of steel, this is because I am going to use strong earth magnets to attach the plates to the Bowcaster frame to the aluminum block that will be inserted in the frame. I am also including pictures of an aluminum Single Poing scope replica I purchased from Blaster Factory so you guys can see how the finished scope assembly looks. I CERAKOTE the single point scope and I used (2) NIKKO scopes. I will be offering these spincast pewter knobs and discs, dials separately. I am still impressed to see all the details on these parts, specially the Russian camera knob/dial. I will assemble a set of side plates with all the knobs/dics/dials and have them CERAKOTE them and I will take pictures. I will also post pictures of the frames and prods with the spheres soon.

My most deepest, most heart felt sympathy, goes out to Manny & his daughter for the loss of his wife to COVID-19. Please keep him & his family in your prayers during this most difficult time. &, if you’re able, please check out the most recent video from Collection Wars, on YouTube, in regards to the GoFundMe account that’s been set up in his name.
