    Hi Everyone,

    This is my first post here, and I apologize if this isn't put in the right subforum.

    This is not a WTB thread, per se, which is why I didn't post it in the New Member WTB thread. I'm looking for established trustworthy stores where I can buy one of these. Roddenberry.com seems to be chronically out of stock on them, and everywhere else echoes that sentiment.

    I have been looking for a while, and it seems as if I chronically miss my opportunity to buy a hollow cast of the First Contact style Type III Phaser Rifle. I want to do hollow obviously because I would like to do a full electronics install, and probably, ultimately even the full scope kit.

    I'm willing to buy from users here if they have a good rep, too, of course. I just don't know who's producing right now, and I won't be set to buy one for a couple weeks as yet.

    Your patience with this n00bette are appreciated. I'm happy to be here, you seem like an amazing community, and I look to contribute my own stuff eventually as well. My future plans include a VOY style tricorder, medical or science I'm not sure, a VOY style hand phaser, and of course, the rifle. I may even do a "compression rifle" if I can find a mold of that, too. I've also got my hands on a Monogram Voyager model which I am planning to build, lit, of course.

    Don´t know anyone with a hollow cast. But with an normal cast I could say you someone.
    My old mk IIIb was a complete hollow kit. Like this Starfleet Materiel Supply Command: Phasergewehre
    I have a similar mk 3b rifle kit.

    The compression Rifle i have too. And this was also not hollow.

    Hey, thanks. I contacted LeMarchand, and he's since replied, so I'm waiting now for his kits to be completed, I suppose. Thank you!

    If you know where I can get other kits though, I'd like to know, since Roddenberry has so few.

    For understanding LeMarchand has hollow kits of it?

    That is great. I know he have the cortical stimulator (and i love this one). I have to ask him too :)

    I know Home but I don´t know how accurate this is, and I don´t know who know all this one.
    I do not have experience with him. I only have his catalog. And I know he don´t offer the EVA Rifle. And I am looking for this rifle :)

    No, he doesn't have hollow kits, unfortunately, but he has the solid cast units, which will at least be a start for me. His kits can take electronics, so that will also help.

    Thanks for the information! Good to hear before something terrible will happen!

    I will ask LeMarchand for a kit too :)
    Thanks

    I actually guessed that just by the way they phrased their site. Yeah, I'll avoid them to be sure! Thanks for the heads up though!
