This is my first SC3.0 saber that I received. It is a Reliant built from Adaptive Saber Parts. Dig it!

Here is the unboxing video,

Hilt review

You will notice the ASP pommel is in fact the Juggernaut's which looks close to the non-ASP Reliant. I do already have the non-ASP Reliant. But I wanted the ASP version because you can readily have the black anodized emitter and switch section accent parts (without going through SF Custom Services). As it stands the ASP Reliant looks very nice. It's also my first saber with Bronze Stingray wrap. Dig it.

Does anyone know where I might find some greeblies screws that I can glue onto the pommel? Not important but if it's something readily available somewhere, please let me know.

Fantastic! I have loved every iteration of the Reliant I have seen, and this one is no exception!

As for the greeblies, I asked Shameem recently where he gets his, and he said he goes to Ace Hardware in his neighborhood. Other than that Sloth Furnace, Solo's Hold, Wana Wanga, or TCSS perhaps?
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Love the Reliant, especially with a Bronze Stingray Wrap (I'm thinking myself I'll do a grey weathering alongside it once I get around to buying one).

Thanks, the Reliant is one of those that never seem to go wrong in any iteration!

I shall have to dig around to find some screws / greeblies. I searched those you suggested, none of them sell greeblies like that. A hardware store is probably the best bet. Though I don't have the machinery to cut up screw stems to keep just the head part as the greeblie. :lol:

Yeah the Bronze Stingray turned out very well. It's my first wrap using it. It almost has a golden-bronze reflection/effect depending on the light.

I was going to say just browse your local hardware store, not like a home depot but a real hardware store. My local Ace has isles of screws, nuts and bolts in little bins.

I'd be worried about a glued part popping off without something to anchor it. I haven't checked the measurements, but some #10 washers and 10-32 button head screws would probably do the job, if you're willing to drill and tap the pommel.

I second Squidious. I've picked up lots of lamp parts in 8-32 to replace plain button head screws on a couple of ASP sabers. ACE even has the 2-56 hex head cup screws that are found on the Vengeance T-bars should you lose one.
I ordered an all black Reliant with brown leather wrap, deep red LED, and 3x Dark Side fonts during the last sale. Waiting on it's arrival. I ordered it with the control box removed, but to be included with the shipment. I will replace whatever screws they fill the hole with with brass lamp screws to go along with the brass covertech I ordered it with. Black, brown, and brass. Should look good. I'll get a matching Heretic to go with it at some point.
Good luck with your mods.

ETA - You don't need machinery to shorten screws. Just pick up a standard wire cutter/crimping tool from your hardware store. They cut and strip multiple gauges of wires and have screw cutters built in.

Thanks, I might look around for those button head cap screws. Nothing urgent, I might leave it as it is, it looks fine. I haven't gone shopping for those screws before, so let's see how it goes. :ohmy:

Great videos as usual, man. That's a real beauty of a saber. It's also nice to see a demo of the SC 3.0 and hear all of the gray fonts. :)

I really like the black accents. That was a good call, getting the ASP version for those. :)
