I got mine the other day. It is very nice and heavy, feels real. Some differences I noticed with it that wasn't on another replica a friend has. He has a Larbel and a MR AOTC. The grooves in the black inner emitter are much deeper than the Larbel. The MR AOTC has shallow grooves too. The silver pommel parts are trapezoidal. Not * it, it is the cornerstone of my meager collection.
