A Killdeer in brass would be something else. Even in one in aluminum would be nice. As dead-set as I am against buying slingshots I would maybe have to break down for one of those.

Are you going to do something, so the repo can be easily told from the original for collector's sake? I am thinking about resales on Ebay or in shops. -- Tex

Hi TEX
YES we intend to powder coat the aluminium ones in metallic black.Last thing we want is for some one to try and pass off as an original, noing how much the pattern cost us we think it is only fare we do something slitley diffrent with our repose.

Hi also just had pointed out to me that the original KILLDEER was cast in a low grade zinc alloy and ours will be cast in BS1490 ALUMINIUM GRADE LM 25M this will stop the bandits trying to rip people off.

Yeah forgot about that, but lets face it most people (on ebay) wouldn't know zinc from aluminum if it bit them.
Hopefully that will never be a issue.
