    Confirmed that real parts do not fit on Russ parts, but do on Roman, meaning the crystal chamber will not screw onto a Russ grenade.

    Now back on topic, the finishing of this hilt is exceptional.

    A question for the experts out there and hopefully not off topic. I bought my russrep parts a few years back and I has been under plastic for years held together by friction. What is the best way to connect all the parts? Threadlock? Superglue?

    Also, what is the correct placement for the cone in the balance pipe? I had to file the cone to get it to fit, but now it's a little loose. I haven't looked at the parts for a while, but i don't think there's a set screw to lock it in position. Looks like some type of glue is best to keep it in place.

    Also armed with steel blue and aluminium blue solutions after working on a TFA DL-44 so i can finally give this some attention.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hah, search was my friend as usual. Apologies.

    However, what is the overall length of the sabre? That way I will have some idea about parts spacing.

    Minor update: (I can't stop working on that thing) I upgraded the cone adapter with one of Roman's (that looks about a thousand times better) switched out the D-ring for one of Roy's, and removed the square washer under the Graflex clamp lever. I know it still doesn't hold a candle to all those Obi ANH out there assembled from the genuine vintage parts, but I still like it a lot.
