Bloodsportstudios RECASTING my Webley on Ebay

Hi all,

Just a warning that this ebay member has recast my Webley kit and is selling them on Ebay - see item #6041340169. I got some close up pics sent to a buddy with an ebay account and you can see the unique marks etc. that are on my original Webley. They bought one of my kits using ebay ID josiepitbull which I now believe is a sockpuppet account. for this John/Glen Gillenwater or whatever they call themselves now.

My ebay ID is sidewinder-forge.

That sucks :angry

But I really love this line from the auction This rifle comes Already assembled using epoxy and metal pins so it cannot be disassembled by recasters with out being severly broken.. How about that, a recaster afraid of recasters.This world never ceases to amaze me.

Here's some provenance pics:

Closer pic of his auction piece:
[attachmentid=7023]

My original webley:
Breech area:
[attachmentid=7024]

Grip plate:
[attachmentid=7025]

His stock plate greeblies pic from #6036664248 (maybe copied from someone else):
[attachmentid=7026]
Hard to see the indents on such a small pic but if you blow it up, even with pixelation you can see em.

My original stock:
[attachmentid=7027]

He has even set the auction so that if you do a search using .co.uk the webley doesn't appear.

Bloodsportstudios was banned from TDH on 11-29-05 for having a sock puppet account.

Shortly after, he tried re-registering with the following user names: bobaanddarth and bobafettgirl.

He recently tried to register using a proxy under the name "vadersgiftedboy."

Just an FYI.

I've dealt with him before. He lied to me about some items I was interested in thinking I was just some dumb SW fan with little knowledge who would buy based on his word.

Unfortunatelly for us, RPF recasting rules don't apply to ebay. In their eyes you don't hold any rights over the Webley. To them, he's just ripping off something that you ripped off.

It would probably take a complaint from the Webley copyright/patent holder before they did anything about it.

As usual, that eBay reply means that as long as the scum make eBay money, they don't really care unless it it illegal (and could get eBay in trouble). :angry
