Vera; Showtime Gun

Postby namebrand » Wed Nov 25, 2009 6:22 pm

Well, we all know Vera was originally the gun used in Showtime, so PLEASE someone tell me it was one of us that won this auction!

I had no idea about it till my friend sent me this link. I would have paid $500 for that no problem! If someone here won it, please tell me you plan to cast it?!? ;)

Great suffering zot!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

That price is almost as good as FREE (in the grand scheme of things). Talk about being around when lightning strikes...

You guys need to watch them Gorram auctions a little closer, the odd shiny piece sometimes comes up!

Seriously, there was a lot of luck involved in my aquisition of this piece. Only one other bidder being the first (and a graceful loser - you the man Noeland!). Secondly a seller who was prepared to ship to the UK, and thirdly, customs who didn't give it a second look!

Those of you following the RPF thread will know that I was highly unimpressed with Rob's contribution to that thread which I regard as very mean spirited (he was practically willing this to get confiscated) and sow seeds of doubt as to it's provenance.

I don't want to get ivolved in any of that here, I just want to build a cool replica of Vera :)

I guess you guys can see the pics over at the RPF, but here they are anyway. As resident expert, maybe Badger can throw some light on that weird greeblie attached to the stock?
