hey all, im new to the prop world outside of lightsabers (i've done a few of those) and want to start off with a DL-44. so im seeking some advice from those of you who have been there done that with this prop. first question is, what to use as a base? i know that the most widely used base is a denix replica. i would probly get one from blast tech if i went that route, but i've also found these HFC Mauser C-96 C96 Metal Gas Airsoft - C96 Mauser Gas Airsoft - AirSplat.com - AirSoft Gun Warehouse i feel like since they were made for use they would be a bit more heavy duty. the only thing i don't exactly like is the extended mag on it, but it'll be getting the whole deal with lights and sound (probly not by me) so it'd end up being covered with a speaker grill probly. i also found this Amazon.com: German Mauser C96 Display Pistol: Everything Else ideally i would want to make it off a real c96 but thats a bit out of my price range ATM. maybe one day though. i want whatever i use as the base as close to the original c96 in detail and construction. what would you guys recommend? Im also torn between the ANH style and the ESB style. i'm leaning towards ANH though.
