Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

I would like to bring this up again.
Ed, you know why. ajb007/wink

Have you casted the AR7 receiver yet? I would be happy to get my hands on a resin version of the receiver, as I lack Christofs amazing skills to make the receiver from scratch.

Christof,
That is AB-SO-LUTLY AMAZING!!!!
I understand that real components were used but to fabricate the receiver yourself is amazing tribute to your modeling skills!!!

I was in the process of casting an AR-7 receiver in solid resin to then offer it to the Bond fans who cannot legally own this rifle. My plan was similar to yours in that the barrel, stock and magazine would be real items that would attach to the resin receiver.

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

I've resurrected this old thread regarding the Armalite gun and scope from FRWL because I have some interesting news to tell you regarding the scope used on the original gun. I own the actual scope in question. Here are a couple of photos of it on my gun. I searched for years and finally found it in the U.K. (I am in the U.S.).

I am now interested in building or buying a fake suppressor for my gun. I know some members here have done a great deal of research into recreating a similar suppressor and I might be interested in buying one from someone here if they would consider putting one together for me. No threads as the original was just shoved into the end of the barrel.

I seem to remember information from decades ago that the original was merely fashioned from wood in the prop department, but don't quote me on that as no longer have the source where I learned this. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Welcome back to AJB007 Bogy and congratulations on your unique find  ajb007/martini

For clarification, is your scope the actual filming prop or the exact model originally utilised and would you be prepared to let us know the manufacturer and model number if known?

Incidentally the original silencer was fitted with a squib therefore it was most definitely not composed of wood.

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Didn't really notice this until perhaps a year or so ago but has anyone else picked-up that "Tilly" then uses the same AR-7 in GF?

With the sight on backwards if I remember correctly  ajb007/crap

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Yes...the scope was on backwards. No wonder she misses her shot on the mountainside. Goldfinger would have appeared to be miles away.

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Funny as well that the photo of bond, behind the rock aiming at the Spectre helicopter, shows the magazine inserted backwards.

Wow, that's a sweet piece too!  Although I like some of the clothing items that Bond wears, it seems like this section of AJB has devolved into a mostly clothing section.  Love to see items like these!  Keep it coming!!  Rebreathers, guns and knives, oh my!!!

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Bogy,

What is the brand and model of the scope on the AR-7?

191

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Bogy,
It would certainly be great for all of us AR-7 owners to attempt to obtain the scope for ours as well. I can fully understand if you choose not to give out the information but would appreciate you considering to do so.  --Ed

Re: AR7 Explorer rifle

Please be patient as I am tying to contact the person that can tell us all more about this particular scope. He is in the UK, I'm in the US and hopefully I can get this done by e-mails, it may take a while so just hold onto your pants. ajb007/biggrin  In the meanwhile I'm still looking to get a fake suppressor for the AR 7. I guess I can try making one myself, on the other hand if someone like Klenen who has already made one would be willing to make another, I would certainly pay them a reasonable fee to make me one. E-mail me if you are interested in the project.  Bogy
