PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the quality-lacking photos. I was in a hurry. I'll shoot some new photos tomorrow. 

A few bits about this new set of molds and castings. Obviously, we are using the same rubber as we have for years. The muzzle cone is molded separately to provide a deeper, more realistic look. The bipod is molded separately, The receiver cover has been molded separately and the charging handle is molded separately. The charging handle is cast with a metal threaded insert. The gun is molded with a threaded post (10-32). This may be reversed in the future but I have to see if this will work or not. 

Normally, these will be painted black but this particular blaster has been painted a gun metal grey metallic to show better in photos.

Ok. So i've done some time and materials estimating and here's what I've come up with. 

 

DOMESTIC:

Firm Rubber DLT-19 (black): $485 shipped in the continental US

    Charging handle will be shipped inside of the box but not assembled on the blaster

Firm Rubber DLT-19 (weathered): $510 shipped in the continental US

    Charging handle will be shipped inside of the box but not assembled on the blaster

 

INTERNATIONAL:

As usual, I'm leery of shipping out of the continental US. I have done it on the E-11s but it's always sketchy. IF you are dead set on getting one of these blasters, I will ship to a US address and from there they can ship to you but I'm going to try NOT to ship outside of the continental US. The reason is that IF this gets stopped by customs it's just too expensive of an item to lose as well as replace / refund for the loss.

 

We have had customers purchase and have them shipped to a friend / fellow 501st member and have them forwarded to them from there. That has worked well but please be advised, you will do this at your own risk. If a "loss" happens as a result, I will do my best to discount a replacement for you but no guarantees.

These will take 1 week to turn around and ship. I will be shipping on Saturdays so please allow me enough time to get your order built and shipped if you have an upcoming event. These are a lot more work than the old version I used to make back in the day. 

I'm probably going to throw in the "weathering" for free for the first 5 blasters.

Since you mentioned weathering...  

can I paint “rubber blasters” with every kind of paint or do you recommend anything special? I’m thinking of basic paint like black, silver/metal and brass especially but feel free to spread your knowledge exhaustively...      :popcorn:

 

It would be amazing if you could maybe open a special thread regarding everything “rubber blasters”.

How to paint, repair.... what kind of glue and such...

You can use pretty much anything on these as far as paint goes. Krylon paints will work fine as well as Testers model paints. We generally use flexible bumper coaters but it's not necessary for detail work.

Try reaching them on their Facebook page. I just noticed they posted about T-21s they might start making.

yes I did Facebook message them----and I did receive a "bulk response". they claimed "everything is finally shipping"---the t-21's was news to me.---Frankly I would prefer the t-21 over the DLT19.  anyway --been awaiting a tracking # ......for a few days now....

Just a head’s up so that nobody brings their pitchforks my way...
I’ve been out of PB for about a year (take a look at my most recent updates prior to this and you’ll have a rough date)
John made The “Official” announcement on Facebook a couple weeks back

Well I received my DLT-19 yesterday and am content with the quality of the piece.

I don't like to spread negative comments but I felt I had to since the item wasn't cheap & didn't get feedback to my inquiries.
