The Evolution Props scope isn't too shabby. I have one on my Denix based DL-44 and I'm happy with it.
I even bought their M38 replica. Again not too shabby. I planned to use this on my E-11 until I scored a vintage scope. Feet are inaccurate but dimensions ARE the same as a vintage piece, so you could swap one out for the other.
All in all not a bad route to take if you don't want resin but don't want to break the bank on a vintage. I will say this. If you order, buy from eBay. I ordered the m19 from eBay and got it in a week. I ordered the m38 directly from their store and got it in a month. I'm sure selling through eBay requires more attention to shipping time. However they only sell certain items through eBay, hence why I bought the 38 from their store. Just FYI folks!!

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
