    Thank you ALLEY, I just ordered this beauty and can't wait to get my hands on it. How long did it take to get to you after you placed your order?

    Thanks!

    You have chosen wisely...

    I had it in my hands within 3-4 days of placing the order.

    Awesome! After converting my ANH black series and configuring my Graflex 2.0 into an ESB, I figured it was time to acquire the newest version. Thanks for this thread, guys.

    I received mine a few days ago and am delighted. Quality is top notch! The only change I made to it is that I purchased a pommel end-cap cover from SkyWampa on Etsy to cover the Graflex inscription. Fit like a charm.

    Thanks, Roman!

    What is the difference between a Maz saber and Rey's?

    I will modify one similar maz saber for a friend soon.
    I designed my clear board for her in the first time.
    I think the best here is to use the wannawanga clamp cover, kobold clip and cap cover, but not the grips.
    About grips, keep the romans but sanding them to remove the cast mold details.
    About rivets or bolts,modify the actual romans bold with a flat head instead of rounded one.
    About glass eye, the way it has been sanded down is wrong to me, too much sanding and with a too coarse grit, maybe just making a better finish on it would be ok, not sure.
    In all cases, it's a deal for 199$, just some mods and it looks very good.
    For myself I will try to get a real graflex but use graflex 2.0 grips, they look similar to romans ones, with fully rounded inside.

    Here is my modded maz saber, here are the changes:
    -modified apparent brass glass eye, I removed the grinded finish for a more realistic damaged look
    -replaced plastic bulb holder for aluminum blade holder (the customer wants it with a blade)
    -weathered the cotter pins
    -added wannawanga sleeve and cap
    -replaced kobold D ring
    -sanded the grips to remove cast finish, and painted them a bit.
    -shaved down the bolts for a accurate flat head look, but keeping them, because I think these are bolts on original maz saber
    -general soft weathering with scotch brite
    -replaced wrong sloth board for a vintage HP board for the picture, waiting for the clear boards from my run to be available.
