Weapon:
Bossk Rifle (V3 ???)

Details:
This rifle's mold differs from the two shown already in the rifles section. You can spot some differences in the middle of this rifle easily when you compare it to the comparison shot of V1 and V2. When I got this rifle I asked on the german forum lichtgeschwindigkeit.de if it's legit and Wolff answered he knows this variant and that it is original. It is not yet included in The Imperial Gunnery so I thought it might be a good idea to add it.

I was going to post a similar topic, but I decided to let someone else bask in the fame.

I purchased a Bossk off ebay and noticed I had this rifle variation.

Rather than complain about REPRO and put a seller on the spot, I used some logic.

I compared the Variant 3--for lack of a better name--to two Bossk rifles (Variant 2) I had since 1980.

The Variant 3 floated, had the same colour and--using a 35-watt light bulb--was semi-translucent. (Darker purple speckles could be seen in a blue matrix.) Those characteristics sealed it for me.

I am posting two photos of the New/3 Varient below:










I hope that helps you all.

Apologies for long delay - Patrick, many thanks for highlighting this here. We've included this on the main site now and called it 'V3'.
Iceworm - thanks - we used the pics you posted.

Thanks to both of you guys + added Cool

Thanks Artoo_Detour.

The changes to Rifles Section look good.

We are getting the Boosk Rifle under control.

Hey Paul,

great to see the updates to the accessories guide.

Maybe there are some more additions to this guide out there!?

So have a look at your accessories!

Cheers, Patrick
