the most accurate flash-hider next to a real MG81 one, metal grill, ....

Some of you may remember my "how to"-buildup with a Denix: http://www.therpf.com/f9/han-solo-esb-anh-all-metal-blasters-step-step-92790/

But 2 weeks ago i bought a MGC-Mauser in a nice condition, and that forced me to a decision what to do with it. I could have build a GK or a ROTJ from it - but as the ANH-Hero is my most prefered Solo-blaster, and as i will probably never get a deactivated real Mauser, so i decided to use it for a ANH-Hero.

This is the bought MGC:






At some points the MGC is much more detailed than the Denix.

The topside of the bolt is not only flat:




When the bolt is pulled back there is the feed mechanism, not only a deep hole:




The magazine bottom is detailed and can be opened:




It has the same safe mechanism and can be field stripped as a real one:






The grips (plastic as the Denix) and especially their bolts are more accurate as the Denix, but mine had very sharp edges - i had to sand them down for a comfortable feel. And their plastic looks even more plastic than the Denix ones, without any weathering.

Re: ANH-Hero Buildup - from a MGC, with real Hensoldt and

The buildup itself is very easy, as i already had the needed parts,

I scrapped the already build Denix-ANH-Hero, and put the parts on the MGC:




The main difference in the way of the buildup is that i painted the bullbarrel/flash-hider adapter instead of blacken it with Birchwood Alu-black. This meets the MGC color better, but still isn´t perfect:




This is how it looks at the moment:






The remaining Denix will be transformed, and used for the buildup of a ANH-Greedo Killer.

Thanks, Markus. :)


I´m not sure if the difference in the overall appearance between the MGC and the Denix is really noticeable on my pics, but in real there is a difference. But, off course, there is also a difference in the requested prices - the Denix is still a sweet piece for a low price.

And here is the promised thread with the reused Denix, for my Greedo Killer:

Thanks. :)

As it was the second time, it was a easy job. I just wish the MGC-Mauser would be more easily accessible. ;) I could use 1-3 more.

Got to say that looks really cool. Was that an E-11 build I could see in the pictures too?

Between 250£ and 375£ :thumbsup
You meant "$", not "£", right? :confused I´m sometimes a little bit confused with the jumping prices, my rule of the thump is between 200-300€. Sometimes less, sometimes more, depending on the condition of the gun.

Ouch. :confused

I´ve seen them went so far, twice - but in both cases the description was a little bit "confusing". Additional not the best pics, so if you don´t know your gun, you could have thinking your bidding on real deacs.

Some pics i forgot to show here:

The bullbarrel got it´s typical chamfered end:


That´s the way it looked:


And the grill got some additional machining for better details:


The bullbarrel is atm on its way to his new owner in CA, i will rework this gun in a not to far future. :love
