Wow, that is too cool. It just SCREAMS Star Wars, but is unique at the same time! Nicely done!
Works like this deserve a return to page 1 :-DWow, surprised to see this bounced back to page 1. LOL
SamC, I did some web searching shortly after I completed the blaster, but could
never find anything like the receiver from the Browning. Haven't looked for a long time though.
Here you go...
This is funny, we're researching a custom build and not an actual film prop. :lol
I love it, though, you really made a cool design, man.
There's a few compensator bodies up for $45 each, but then the adapters seem to go for about $30, plus the chokes are $10 to $15 (if one wants a taper at the front, which I think I do.) Add shipping and it still comes to about $100 total.That's not to say you couldn't find one for $45 or something.
I'm showing my firearm ignorance here but what gauge would you say the compensator is? I'm guessing 16 based on eBay pics, but it's really hard to tell without anything in the photos for scale.Shoot, sorry. Colt R75.
Anyway, here's that dude's site I was talking about.
He's got parts, not sure if he has the exact trigger group, but he did at one time.
Trigger Group & Parts
He does have a full Monitor parts kit for a cool $12,5.

You may wanna periodically check gunbroker for stuff, I've seen parts there, and I think that's where I found mine all that time ago.
Yeah, sorry, I meant on the blaster.Haha, I've watched SO MANY if that dude's videos!! Even that one! He's kinda strange, but the stuff is totally fascinating.
Which compensator are you taking about? The one on the monitor? Or the blaster?
I'm pretty sure it's larger than one for a 16ga shotgun. But not positive. Mine is definitely for a 12.
