Disney Plus Mandalorian series

#1

Post by JustSomeOldGuy » Tue Dec 24, 2019 10:18 pm

Wife is watching this, I'm mostly ignoring it like I have the whole Star Wars series after the first movie in +-1975. Anyway, I'm passing thru the living room where the wife is watching episode 6. There's a Jason Statham looking guy on the screen, and he is carrying in a double chest holster - a pair of Ruger Mk II's with modified bolt tabs (instead of the two serrated 'ears', theres a knob that looks like a hat worn by the 80's band Devo). I'm awarding the props guys a <double_facepalm>. They blacked out the Ruger logo in the middle of the grip, but the MK II grip frames look like nothing else I've encountered.

Mandalorian is the best thing on TV right now, but I’m a Starwars fan.

This is the way! I've very much enjoyed the series.

And the Star Wars franchise has always turned real firearms into blasters. Han Solo's blaster is a Mauser C96, the Stormtrooper blaster rifles are Sterlings, the Rebel blasters in Empire Strikes Back are StG 44s etc etc. I think it's fun playing identify the gun in the shows.

I have spoken.

....apparently for the last time....

I’m not a HUGE Star Wars fan, although I have seen most or all of the major release movies in the series. I have to say that I’m enjoying The Mandalorian much more than I did the movies. I’m not sure why, unless it’s Skywalker burnout. I think another reason might be that the serial nature of the shorter releases keeps it from getting boring. And come on......who doesn’t want a Baby Yoda? :lol:

Just in case people aren't aware of it there is the Internet Movie Firearm Database.

Specifically as relates to "The Mandalorian": http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Mandalorian,_ ... nn_1894.29. There’s some very interesting and obscure guns being used in this show.
