Exactly what I'm saying. Only in this pic it looks to be the width of the tape on the ranch Saber but smooth just like the hero tape in ESB:Here is an extreme negative with upped contrast to hopefully show what I'm seeing better. the odd thing is that there appear to be two lines going around the clao from the lever, like a strip of tape ala ESB, however they appear to be higher up the clamp than the graflex logo, not down the center, which makes no sense.

Awesome job! I can't read it, but it's cool to see!I have finished translating this guide to Japanese!
Thanks Seth, I carefully read. It is wonderful. There were various things I did not know.
There are some questions.
1.Grip measurements for Maz Box graflex,
You say "... The grips start at the clamp, and stop 5mm short of the
base of the saber."
But in the blueprint by Roy Gisling, it have 3.5mm gap from clamp and 4.5mm short from the bottom.
It seems to my eyes that Roy's theory is closer in Maz box shot,
especially in terms of the gap between the clamp and the grip.
2.Although it's a small point, You wrote that the "Grenade" of Obi-wan ANH, No.3 Mk1 rifle grenade was started production in 1916,
But Martin Hales started production of it in 1915, and the production has ended due to some disadvantages within the year.
3.No.3 Mk1 is not RPG(Rocket-Propelled Grenade in english. Ruchnoy Protivotankobyy Granatomyot in russia, means portable type anti-tank grenade launcher).
That was antipersonnel weapon for trench warfare, launched simply by combustion pressure of blank cartridge.
I also agree that is a very crude weapon.
4.Is there any other obi-wan ANH image that can confirm the presence or absence of the armitage end cap except the photograph of tatooine?
I have only seen images from the side or from the emitter side, so I think that there's a possibility all obi-wan ANH hero have no end cap.
5."Shooting the ISYHCANL insert shot" in refference gallery, this saber has a duel blade.
Is this not ISYHCANL in itself? Just saying that this picture was taken when ISYHCANL was filmed?
4. I haven't seen one-- but people, like Sym-Cha, who are trustworthy and a proven source of solid info have seen such an image.
