new T-21 blaster template

Recommended Posts

Here's a new template I created for the T-21 blaster. I created it by gathering multiple pictures and diagrams of Lewis guns and overlaying them in Photoshop to create a template. It's not uber accurate by any means, but it should be helpful in creating a "trooping" version of a T-21. I'd love to own a Sci-Fire / Hyperfirm, but they don't ship to Canada and it would be dicey to import one due to customs regulations. But nothing says you can't make a PVC / wood replica for trooping!

 

I've sourced most of the parts (still need a few more) for the build and I'll be creating a tutorial in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! If you're antsy, here's a preliminary parts / supplies list:

 

- 3/4" thick wood for main body

- 1/2" thick wood / MDF for stock & receiver details

- 1/4" thick wood / MDF for grips

- 3" black ABS pipe (it's larger than 3") or 3.5" white PVC for main shroud

- 2.5" PVC for the barrel

- Large diameter to small diameter reducer, or a long tapered funnel

- 2" PVC for the receiver

- 4" drain piping or half round adhesive foam

- more details to come!

 

 

Here's a preview size

Here's the full size version (if you can print this large like Kinkos or something, print it at 72 DPI full size). Or you can crop and print just the sections you need (eg: the stock, receiver, feed cover, etc..)

Don't know what I am doing, but I can't print the darn template, it simply resizes to A4 all the time.....fabulous work on your project, si inspired to start my own as soon as I can figure out the template printing issue...

It's a 10 year old thread so I'm not surprised.

 

I used the following image, I placed in publisher and made the page size 50 1/4" to match the size of the blaster then when printing it overlaps on standard pages, tape together then cut out. Here is a link to my thread: https://www.whitearmor.net/forum/topic/21392-t-21-build-im-bored/#comments4415140666_89d369a79c_o2.jpg
