    Recently I purchased a resin Boba Fett blaster on ebay (for a great price.) It is missing the scope that is on top. While I am not a strict person for it to be a screen perfect replica, I would like to replace that missing scope. If anyone has any suggestions for a place that I could start hunting for a resin scope for my blaster please let me know. I am not posting in the Junkyard (because I can't yet - not enough posts in the last year) I didn't want to list this as a "want to buy" item in the wrong forum. So I am trying to make this a general question about where I should look for a scope.
    Thanks for the help,
    Scott

    There are resin scopes on Ebay too.
    See "asi fett scope" although I believe they are recasts of our own BraksBuddy's.

    Thanks. I will keep an eye open. There is currently only one on ebay, it doesn't appear to be a recast, which is nice, but it is 6 times more expensive then the actual rifle. Not that it is a bad price, I guess just one of the downsides to getting a good deal on the original blaster it is that now I am trying to keep it all cheap.

    It is a recast and it's only $30.
    You got the rifle for $5?

    Of course you could go with a close real scope. 4x20 scopes go for about $10 at sporting goods stores.

    Try this:

    4x20 scope

    or search at ebay for "4x20 scope", they´re around $ 5 - 10

    Don't buy from VCStudios on Ebay as he is a recaster, his Webley kit is a recast of my kit.
    PM sent on scope.

    Yup.... It is sad in this hobby that you have to be very very careful who you sell to. At least they haven't gotten ahold of my snooper scope... yet.... :(

    If you're not after 100% screen accurate, just go to a gunsmith and see if he has any broken, old or damaged ones.
    He'll probably just give you one.

    That's what I did.

    Thanks for the replies, and the warning about VCstudios.

    And yes I did win the rifle for just $5.00 .
    It was listed in the wrong catagory ( or at least not the best one) and had a title I believe didn't help (no offense to the seller). Between those 2 things I was the only bidder so I got it for the opening bid.
