Black Palace Blaster Repro ?

Postby Stubbs » Tue Jul 03, 2018 12:46 pm

Hi Guy's

I have recently acquired a black palace blaster that i need some advice one. The seller had a lot of reproductions and did not know legit weapons from fakes due to his quantity and lack of knowledge. He was honest enough to say he wasn't sure so offered a reasonable price for his blasters i had a look through and thats when i found the palace blaster. There where other genuine weapons i picked up also.

This blaster floats and has the circle on the pistol grip along with the lumps either side at the front end no excess flashing like the one on TIG.

Your thought's thanks

I’m not aware of any Repro with Circle on handle and raised dot on barrel, apart from v3 Repro on TIG, but that normally has excess flashing and a lack of detailing on the gun above the trigger. IMO it looks good.

It does look OK, look closely at the seam line all the way around. Quick 'crayon test' just in case it's an original spray painted.

Good call James. Never even thought of that, but they do it with the SA80 YPS rifles :evil:
