So I've always wanted to do something like this... I absolutely loved AOTC and Jango Fett Bounty Hunter! The Jango backstory of that game to me has always been my favorite side story in Star Wars (legends I use that term loosely because the Bounty Hunter story of Jango Fett will always be canon to me But here she goes: What's a person gotta do to make a Zam/Jango sniper rifle? I did a bunch of research on the matter and found some very, good pics and folks who've really done their homework and decided it was time to give one a shot for myself! I'm about 70-75% finished there's a few more things that I need to do yet but couldn't wait! Had to show her off a bit. So what I got was a replica Revolutionary style flint lock Kentucky long rifle, and adapted a scope from a 3D printed version of the Zam carabine rifle. Took the time to "carefully" take apart my Kentucky long rifle found the right type of paint that looked the best and had some brass, steel, wood, and resin pieces to consider but also didn't want to spend a ton on paint and was able to narrow it down to two paints... got a sharp gloss black and a steel rim chrome paint for the brass parts the steel barrel and the wooden ramrod... the black was for the stock and butt stock. She'll be that way for a while (but when finished hopefully not too distant future) 1, aluminum ramrod 2, metal scope 3, 7/8" barrel 49" (probably aluminum) 4, cut the stock to be open in those two spots showing the ramrod 5, LIGHT AND SOUND BABY!!!

Got my 7/8" barrel replacement and picked up a 1/2" x 10" galvanized threaded nipple and 1"x1/2" bell reducer to make a nice scope... started the sanding process and decided that NO PAINT IN THE WORLD can match the beauty of a high shine polish

Check out the progress:

Gonna work on those bells after I get them CRANKED on to the threaded nipple with a good pipe wrench...

Also got some sweet screw spacers for the butt stock

Not quite ready to put her together... still need to cut the stock, get the brass end on the ramrod, "probably" gonna strip the paint off of some of those smaller parts and the anodizing and shine them up so they match the barrel, ramrod and scope also ordered some aluminum bendable strips lots of little things to do before electronics will be installed but definitely starting to look more like she should!

Finally was able to get around to cutting my stock cut and also found a satisfactory (to my liking) brass splice and head for my ramrod. Was able to track down some flat aluminum bendable banding strips to make some shiny couplers on the stock.

Gonna do a full repaint on butt plate and stock, gotta do some touch up on the scope and barrel as well but I think I'll get to that after I have some screw holes drilled into the barrel once everything is in the right place and spaced apart properly.

But here she goes! It's starting to look A LOT CLOSER
