Correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no dedicated GK thread like there is for the hero ANH DL44....maybe should be...

Anyhoooo....I've been trying to figure out what rings are on the GK screen-used version. I've heard "tip-off", "foot-ball", and a couple of others. They're all pretty different though and I'm feeling a bit lost. Any opinions on this style (I understand there's some debate about what height the rings are - medium or high, but what about the style?)







Cheers!

There are two different styles of scope ring associated with the "Greedo Killer" Blaster and the set you have looks like the ones you see on screen. The other "football" style you mention are seen only in publicity photos but are a popular option since they are very clearly identifiable.

The way the rings are arranged with the scope differs between sets as well.

I have a set of both styles for whenever I get around to finishing mine lol.

Cheers,

Thanks, guys. Yeah, dcarty, I knew there had been some 'special editioning' so to speak post filming and that the football rings were wrong for screen-used. The references to 'tip-off' style was baffling me as those don't look like either the SU or promo rings as far as I could tell.
AHA!! So that's what was bugging me about them - something about the chunk of metal under the ring was nagging me. It's skinnier than it should be! Thanks, LB!

wrong knob




correct knob




I hope that will help you. :)
