    Repro weapons

    So I've been looking for a Zartan pistol to complete my figure. I went on eBay and saw this: got me thinking ... is there really a way to tell repro weapons from originals? I mean, they're so tiny to begin with. Kinda makes me worried about some of my other "complete" figures if their weapons are repros or not. Any input would be appreciated!

    As someone who did most of my collecting before the big repro boom, I have yet to see a repro that wasnít pretty obvious (in person) due to either color or plastic quality. I can pretty easily distinguish between original accessories and anything produced later.

    That being said, it is very difficult to tell from auction pictures. Also, I have been out of the game for a while now so my anecdotal experience may differ from others more current in buying and selling.

    For me, I donít really care. I donít think toys will be a good investment, so if I can get enjoyment out of it I donít really care if it is a repro, but I certainly donít want to pay diamond prices for cubic zirconium.

    I saw these available as well, I wonder who is producing them?

    ohio- right next to the air force museum- which totally rules.
    like a lot of people that seller has bought from me in the past, he seems genuine and his molds look pretty good. i don't want to critique anyone though. but no that's not me, i'm retired from that. there is at least one ebay seller though who has made molds from parts i sold him in the past and he sells those and overall they look like crap. bluesnagman (the seller in the above auction) is not that guy.
