    Recent build for repeat customer, Jasper Tibbets......this is a United Composites CX76 Viper with a Tombstone theme. Focused on the Val Kilmer version of Doc Holliday with a few SDPW images. 100% Alps components from Batson Enterprises.

    Jim..... I noticed that you used 23mm reel seats on several of your recent Viper builds instead of the 24 used by factory. Just wondering what your logic is here If you wouldn’t mind sharing.

    My logic? Why use a size larger when the 23mm fits just fine? If anything, I'd question the logic of using a 24.....

    Thanks for the response. I put a 23mm on a Centaur I’m currently building for myself because it was a nice fit. I also don’t understand why factory chooses to use the larger size.

    I always knew this version of Tombstone was really popular, but I had no idea how much before posting pics of this build. I need to go back and watch it again now......been awhile. :)
