    Very nice shoot Inigo. It helps a lot to identify the slight details that defere.

    I have the feeling that the complete grenade section, from the windvane to the last ring/gorge before the clamp section has this slightly bronze color on top of the black

    Anyone have a shot of the knurling on the mystery chunk?

    I think that's just dust and dirt buildup. Could be from the sandstorm scene.

    Huh. I don't see any knurling, but it's not the best photo.

    I've seen something there from when the photo was posted... I didn't think it was knurling.

    Either way the search still continues! Lol

    If I do the next run, I don't know if I can even PART with my v2 from round 2...

    I may just need a version for at work... I've grown attached to it and I'm not even done yet...

    I imagine when I'm done I'll never let it go.

    Same, I've put so much work and experimentation into it, I dont think any reasonable dollar amount would feel worth what I put into it, and the fact that it is my first V2.

    Side note, anyone know if there are more V2 clamp levers coming? It's the only thing still missing from mine. I didn't nab one from wannawanga when I had the chance.

    Been kicking this idea for a while and been looking at some pics as to what the "mystery chunk" could be given that it's knurled. It's not entirely square, it looks tapered (and possibly slanted), and it has knurling. Now I put it out there for scrutiny, and get any info from anyone whom might be more familiar with it; is our chunk a leathercraft stamp?








    The stamp:

    It's a good instinct PoopaPapaPalps. I can see it, broken tool, "let's toss this on there".

    My thinking was along similar lines. There's a great hole on this prop, that needs to be on set at last minute, what's readily available in-house of similar size and of little consequence to sacrifice on the band saw?

    I keep going back to some type of antique, square head, lag bolt.

    This, to me, is getting closer to what I see in the pics, (minus the pronounced lip under the square head):







    I'm having a very hard time seeing the knurling on the chunk that is being described. I see what are possibly manufacturer's markings that are common on the head of some screws.

    Maybe the "knurling" is tool marks from forcing a threaded bolt into a non-threaded hole?

    Where did the knurling observation come from? That pic of Mark holding it, or a first hand description? The pic alone isn't definitive enough IMO, it could just be corrosion or something. Because knurling has been suggested, I can see it - it might just be the power of suggestion though.

    It's been confirmed from someone who's held it in their own hands. Lucky lucky!!
