Scott Juarez over at the RPF did amazing work putting this all together for me. I don’t have the tools or the skills to do this justice, so I relied on Scott to do all the final assembly and modification. I was basically a supplier and glorified creative director.

When I sent my 2049 Tomen off to Scott I already had a Don Parker steel cylinder, and I'd sourced a vintage weaver knob and binding post and a steel barrel. I also bought a genuine magwell directly from Steyr in Alabama. The current model is not as glossy as the real prop or the Tomen reproduction, but it polished up nicely and I think it'll look better and better over time.

My request to Scott was simple: let's make a World Con blaster, but without the 20 years of neglect that occurred "out of universe" following production. I think Scott did a perfect job with this. It's exactly what I imagined.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy, and I'd be happy to answer any questions. It feels great to complete a project many months in the making, and it wouldn't have been possible without 1) Scott, and 2) the amazing community both here and the RPF. To those who helped me out privately, you know who you are – many thanks!

He did a very good job!

Can I ask how much you paid for the Magwell? Do they have a site where you can buy them?

It was about $60 USD if memory serves. I just called Steyr Arms directly in Alabama, and they were happy to help. They get a kick out of us Blade Runner folks.
