Excellent idea Nathaniel! I built a DL-44 replica for a buddy out of an MGC replica Mauser C96, genuine vintage Hensoldt Wetzlar Ziel Dialyt 3x scope, genuine Tomtit greeblies, and fabricated metal parts and wooden grips from various makers. I have a build thread on RPF here https://www.therpf.com/forums/threads/just-another-anh-hero-dl-44-build.290816/#post-4466851
This would have been a great thing to do.... except for the fact that the forums are terrible and spam filled... but the spam seems to be cleared out for a moment...
Here is a present I made for my Mum and Sister in law for Christmas.
