Props Halo Sniper Rifle Scope

If I may interject something about your pricing:
1. Does the print actually use $30 of filament or is that just for one spool? You can estimate filament price by figuring out the cents per gram of your spool, then weighing your print.
2. On the other hand, considering the complexity of the build, I think you're selling yourself short for $25 profit.

That's just my opinion as someone trying to break into the professional prop making industry, but I'm all ears to hear other points.

It uses almost 75% of a spool of filament because of the shell thickness and its 100% infill to give it maximum strength. However for the price i don't want it to go over $320 since i feel that everyone should have a chance to buy this.

Being that as it may the price isn't fully calculated and may jump up by the time its fully assembled.

the scope progress is coming along well but on a side note there may be either a special variant of the scope or a pair of bifocals that a UNSC soldier/ODST trooper would use in the field made from a pair of 1-0.5 inch CRT units. However these will be in black and white since the only units that were made like this would be in old camera viewfinders.

Be that as it may the CRT units may provide a better picture since they were designed for IR cameras but this is just a possibility right now.
