The jealousy is strong in this one. Seriously, just one of those would make my collection, and you have TWO. Gage says, "No fair. No fair."

The 47A was retooled from scratch from new original masters, made from new 3D models.
Technically he doesn't have two, he has one of each.

I'm actually reading my dad's copy of the book at the moment. He said when he was reading it many moon's ago, he came to a stop and looked down from his rocking chair to find me, as a Gage-aged infant, sitting on the floor between his feet, silently staring up at him. Needless to say, he was done reading for the night.

The 'sematary' spelling I was exposed to as a child solely from the movie has forever skewed how I instinctively want to spell it.

Either way...I don't.

Underneath the barrel there are 2 small cylindrical objects that appear to be screws that can be finger tightened.

Can anyone be kind enough to identify what these could be as a greeble please?

I have a resin replica of the 47A and these are missing.

Cheers

Sounds like you are talking about the thumbscrews.

I posted an alternative here if you are interested:

viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1617

Can be made in plastic or metal.

Before you order, if you could measure the inner diameter of the hole I can verify if the piece will fit.

Otherwise I hope someone can give you info on the actual pieces.

I had the thumbscrews machined for both the Model 47 and 47A, so they are not a found item.
The 47 were brass, the 47A were blackened steel.

Cheers Badger!

I 'll need to sort an account out and measure the diameter. Unfortunately despite the resin mould being reasonably OK. the section where the thumb screw locate are....shall we say in the words of Niska......Not so good.....one is OK, the other was damaged by an air bubble.

From memory, I would suspect the location hole is roughly 1mm diameter. I can always fill and then use a pin drill to bore out a locating point, then epoxy resin it in place.

Some info from my Sidkit builds, but I used the Badger thumbscrews on mine:

Drilled and tapped the shrouds for the set screws to hold the thumbscrews.
I hand drilled the knurled knobs and the frame mounting dimples for a 4-40 X 1/2"L set screws on the first Mal pistol.
Even the QMx knurled knobs are glued on.
Mine came with one detached; I glued it back on.
This lousy picture got worse when it converted to a JPEG
I have the tap size listed as either 3mm (Badger thumbscrews) or 4-40
which is what I drilled the Sidkit thumbscrews.

The top pistol in the pic below has the Sidkit thumbscrews,
the lower example has the nickel-plated-brass thumbscrews.

Maybe that helps,
Mike
