My E-11 Parts

Apart from the Droid Caller, I also received some of the parts for making an E-11 Stormtrooper Blaster.

(From left to right: Vintage M19 Tank Scope; Vintage Eagle Hengster Counter; Replica Scope Rail; Vintage Folding Stock)

The M19 Tank scope is in amazingly good condition, considering its age, with only minor wear marks in some places. It comes complete with the original mounting plate, which is rare nowadays.

The Eagle Hengstler Counter is also in very good cosmetic condition, with expected oxidization on the metal sleeve plus some discolouration on the plastic cover and clear lens, and some scratches here and there.

The scope rail is made by a friend of mine on the RPF, and is one of the better ones I've seen out there. A curve has been incorporated on one end to conform perfectly to the barrel of the blaster.

And the scope rail fits the M19 scope perfectly.

The item that really blew me away is the vintage folding stock. Having played with blasters with fan made stock on them (some static, some foldable), this real, vintage folding stock just feel so much more real and natural. It also has quite a bit of heft to it.
