Still looking, not seeing this in blue....

How do they have the Raven Hooker gun, and not this?

I'm willing to front the "Smurf Gun" (lol), pay the $30, and get a custom masterpiece. The smurf gun adds to Longballer's library of molds. Even if it's an oddball gun, if he has longevity, SOMEBODY down the road is gonna want the same thing, and then the profit factor kicks in.

I'm sure he's initially gonna take a beating, bartering his work for molds, but when he expands beyond the forum, he makes the money back bigtime, and has materials on site to turn a profit.
I don't mind paying the shipping either. I have seen his work, and I have seen the design we are working up for me, and I think it is an INSANELY good deal.

I just don't know how many airsoft models are out there for the guns people would actually carry in the real world. Might have to have a different deal for an airsoft type mold. Don't think I could do the same $30, but lets say ... $50. Makes up for the less expensive mold in case it needs replacing sooner rather than later.
I would be careful with airsoft guns. They are not always a perfect match to the real verions. They are usually really close though. I'm not sure how much play is acceptable for holster molds.

Maybe a Colt SAA would work. Couldn't find a blue gun, but I found this rubber replica.

There is a little allowance for variations in the mold as long as they are real close. If the length and width are right, the minor details can be a little off. The main shape is the key to getting the proper fit; snug enough for the upside down retention check, but still an easy draw. The fine holster details are then added by hand to add to the appearance and fit. Blue guns are just better up front and for the long run. They should last just about forever as a mold.

JD,

That sounds great! Not sure I could do $30 on a quick draw double rig, but I'll hook you up with a great deal regardless. I shouldn't even need a special mold for that one, as you want it less molded than other styles. As long as I know the exact length of the pistols, I should be able to work from there. If you want to order up another type of mold though, I'll do each side for $50.

1858 for both sides?
