Anyone have a good run of metal conversion parts still? I have an MGC P08 I'd like to convert ;)
Fieldmarshall still has conversion parts but they are designed for the WE 6” airsoft that was used in the movie. Maybe they’d still work on an MGC (but isn’t the MGC itself kind of valuable compared against a ~$100 airsoft? And does it have the correct sight at the back?).

Conversion kit:

Yeah unfortunately the rear sight is incorrect however I don't believe the MGC P08 is especially valuable outside of the A180 is it?

For some reason I thought it was, but I was probably confusing it with the way MGC mausers are so valuable. Glancing at eBay it looks like the 4" MGC P08 hovers around the same price as an airsoft WE P08. Also, apparently MGC *did* make a P08 Navy, and that one does seem to be more rare, going for about twice as much.

Have you tried Field Marshal: A180 JYN ERSO BLASTER KIT - War Machine Paintball

I did not do a kit build, I bought a finished piece but he does great pieces. Take a look.
I'm looking at that now... I'm between the Field Marshal and the cheap kit from Evike because I really like the look of the one Garrett Smith just sold here Star Wars - A180 JYN ERSO BLASTER WITH A VINTAGE MGC P08 LUGER

Also just to verify, Mar Machine Paintball and vmusicstore on ebay are all Field Marshal correct? It's a little confusing lol

Yeah the Mausers are crazy now haha I think I might just convert this MGC then sell it and pick up an airsoft and Field Marshal's kit for my personal one :)

The all metal MGC/RMI P-08 is the rare one, I bought mine back in the 1970's and paid $26 for it from RMI in Virginia. The plastic cap fire ones are the plentiful ones. I always cringe when I see MGC replicas turned into Star Wars blasters because for the most part they are worth more money in their original state.

Got my War Machine A180 in yesterday! This thing is fantastically accurate! For any of you that have this one, did yours come with screws for the barrel tip and band? Mine aren’t screwed into anything and I want to secure them before I start weathering it...

There should be a TINY grub screw for the barrel tip. Maybe it fell out?

I re-tapped mine for M3 and made a custom slotted grub screw for mine.

Just use a little dot of glue on the barrel band. You never know when or if you want to take it back off. The dovetail should fit relatively tight.

Here's mine! Dann's Blaster Projects - E-11 Stormtrooper Blaster!!
Yeah didn’t come with a screw for the tip. I just ordered a tap set and i’m gonna do an M2 or M3 screw in it. I ended up using some two part epoxy on the band! :)
