    She bought me a real Webley Mark 1 Flare gun for me to convert to a Boba Fett ESB EE3 !!! She graciously let me have it in advance so I could get to work. This one is a chrome Federal Labs Version but will convert nicely. I dropped it off at a local shop to have the chrome removed. I will post pics as this baby takes shape.

    So freaking excited!!

    She just read that and is laughing her ass off. Fair warning if she marries you I still get the Webley.

    Just got the de chromed parts back from the shop. They did a great job. Hit them with a quick wet sand to get any remaining gunk off. Bluing kit should be here in a few days.

    It's a song. Beyonce says "put a ring on it", it being her finger.

    It's beautiful, and coming along nicely. Please take more pics if you could. Maybe a different background .... and a few more angles. Diffuse the lighting maybe. See what I did?
    I'm living vicariously through you now. I told my wife that she was only your girlfriend and look what she gifted you. I beseechingly told her I was a committed man thus deserved more. She told me to go find a girlfriend then...and laughed in my face.
