    Hey gang. I said a few weeks back that I would have a new replica soon that would be the most accurate and highest in quality ever made and I have it finally. I am really excited about it. I think it came out just like I wanted it to. It really completes my Indy Outfit. Just thought I would share in case anyone here is also into that type of thing.

    Very nice. I think I read somewhere on COW that this was on the horizon...

    Please tell us more.

    Beautiful looking piece, really nice. Having had several guns your blueing came out great.

    Thanks guys. It is just made of good ole safe solid resin with metal particles in it and nicely painted and aged on top of that. Good to throw in your trusty Indy holster and be ready for looking the part down to the smallest details.

    That is absolutely the most realistic weathered gun finish I've ever seen on a resin prop. :thumbsup

    Any chance of a how-to? :D

    Yes a how-to would be awesome. I couldn't buy one even if they were available cause replicas are prohibited in Canada.

    Accurate replicas of a current model firearm that do not shoot projectiles at a rate of 400FPS or higher are concidered replicas and are prohibited. That's the simplified version too...it's pretty wonky when you get into the details.

    Well isn't it technically the "importation". I don't remember seeing posession....

    Possession is ok if you owned it prior to Dec 1998. Importing is a no-no, as is buying, selling, or giving them to someone else.

    Don't even get me started on why a real deactivated gun is ok but a replica isn't...

    Believe it or not the how to is really simple. Just do a ton of the same thing and you get really good at it. In many ways I like the replica better than the real gun. Thanks guys. I appreciate the comments and support.

    Thank you. It is amazing. I have gotten to where I can do them very quickly and it is better ever time but it hs taken years to achieve the ability to do it right and do it fast.

    So there would be no problem getting this kind of replica shipped to the UK before the law changes??? Just wondered as Ive got a few replicas I want from the US so think Id better hurry up.
