Lightsaber Identification Help?

Postby androjonny » Wed Aug 21, 2019 10:04 am

Hi all, looking for some much needed help in identifying these as originals, or repros?

They all past the float test and all rise back to surface when submerged. The red sabers (which are very bright in the first place) show up bright under UV, whereas the yellow one doesn't. After checking the Gunnery website I'm inclining that these are v5, v6 repros....

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks Jon

You will probably need better photos to get a definitive answer, they are a bit grainy/blurry

Minefield sabers. Even with great pics I find it hard to identify. Better to have in hand and TBH they need to go under the microscope to identify 100%.

Thanks for looking guys. I went through all the weapons and accessories in my collection and have made a record of what versions they all are which was a tall task to start with, but these sabers are definitely a challenge.....I have another red one, missing the tip, that shares the same properties as these 3, but has a tiny letter Y on the hilt, so I'm sure that is fine. Anyway I'll leave this post up for now and maybe try and add a few better pics, camera is a bit naff.
