Hey everyone, I have been doing as much searching as I could, and I would like to know if anyone else has purchased this hilt, and if so your opinion/review

https://thesaberarmory.com/product/kr-x-barriss-ofee-diy-empty-hilt-prequel-saber/

Eventually I plan to submit my application to the Legion, once I have everything ready.. And I noticed that in the guildlines for the costume, other than a metal hilt, it did not specify character accurate hilt. other than blade color. Though options out there for this characters hilt is quite scarce, and not usually discussed from what I could find. So I woild like to open some dialogue on this. As to what is acceptable, and what others have done.
Thanks Smile

That saber is a top quality piece. They currently make the only regularly available version of this hilt and I have personally worked on a number of sabers from the manufacturer. They are very well machined and put together. Definitely worth the price.

The seller is also a prompt shipper and solid with customer service.

In part, because of the rarity of a good match available, there isn't specificity in the standard. When my wife (LadyB) made Barriss her father and I custom made one.

It looks like a solid replica.

Thanks for the replies. I ordered one up. This will be my first lightsaber, so it will take some work to build. A bit of a learning curve.

If you ever need any help, feel free to drop me a line. Sabers are kind of what I do, so I'd be happy to assist.

Well today I completed the wiring of my first saber and powered it up Cool
Still dealing with a few fitment issues with the hilt led bezels. But so very close to completion. Smile rather exciting. Already I am thinking of what I want to do for a second saber. Razz
