The following is to update everyone about Production for FX-SABERS graflex products going into 2016
Vintage Complete systems:
With the increasing prices and varied quality of vintage graflexs it is no longer feasible to buy enough
of them in good enough condition and be able spread the cost out amongst multiple saber systems
to keep a consistent price from one system to the next.
Therefore, for the few remaining Vintage Graflexs I have (as well as any more I may acquire)
I will be turning them into full saber systems and auctioning them here in the forum as they are
completed and will price them in accordance with the quality of the vintage hilt being used.
I only use Graflexs that are in good enough condition for conversion and are presentable
as a proper collectible prop replica, be it hero or weathered versions.
For those who sign up on my list I will send out notifications of auctions as they are listed.
I plan on putting up Graflex auctions approximately every 2 weeks for as long as my stock holds
out and will continue with any others I may acquire until new replicas are readily available.
I will also be auctioning completed systems using the few remaining Original Version 1 Parks
Graflex Replicas I have in stock.
I will still have an Active list for Vintage "Send In" orders where if you have a vintage and want it
converted to a full system I will of course be doing those and continue to offer the service.
If you are on the complete system list and acquire a vintage you want to send in simply let me know
and I'll move you over to the send in list accordingly.
For the time being I will leave the vintage lists as is and continue to add people knowing it will change next year.
Those on the vintage list will be automatically transferred to the replica list in order to keep your place
in line and can decide if they wish to continue with their order once the new replicas are available.FX-SABERS GRAFLEX Production info and ( SIGN -UP ) List 2014 - 2015
Replica Complete systems:
The New "complete systems list" will change form vintage to replica and will use the up and coming
Romans Empire Graflex Replica coming in early 2016, prices will be adjusted accordingly.
I also plan to offer the more Rare Stainless Steel Version ( depending on cost and availability )

Chassis Kits (for replicas and vintage):
I will be selling a few more of the DIY chassis kits between now and the end of the year and then I will be
making some changes to increase production to produce more chassis kits for 2016.
Once New chassis kits for 2016 are ready go into production, availability with be through the forum
as well as making them available through affiliated retailers/guild members.
Parks 2.0 Graflex Chassis Kit
I am in the final stages of my design and am preparing to produce the prototypes once
the parks 2.0 hilt is available.FX-SABERS Chassis Kits for 2.0 Korbanth/Parks hilt (what chassis fits)
I will still need to order material and get kits being produced along with making an assembly manual
for the chassis which will inevitably take a few weeks even after the hilt arrives.
Once prototypes are made/test fit and and anomalies worked out the parks 2.0 chassis kit will go
into production and availability with be through the forum as well as making them available
through affiliated retailers/guild members.
Parks 2.0 Chassis kit full system install.
My production of full system for the 2.0 is still to be decided but chassis will be made available
for completed systems to be built by guild and mining colony members.
Thank you all for your continued patience with production and please be assured that I am
working on doing what I can to continue to offer and expand the graflex products I create.
