*Vintage Graflex Flashes vary in their dimensions from part to part, and our replica will also vary from part to part. The Graflex Shop is committed to building our replica within reasonable tolerances of an original. Exceptions include the default product not including the internal electrical assembly, replacing rivets with screws, a redesign of the slide switch and operation, and also other remaining items that may no longer be possible to manufacture. Small imperfections may be present.
Our TGS Graflex Replica includes purposeful tells to distinguish it from a true vintage:
- There are no internals included with the default replica product (vintage includes an internal electrical assembly, pilot bulb and battery spring)
- Top half has one of the 'bunny ear' tabs threaded (vintage is not threaded, vintage 'bunny ears' are riveted to the top half)
- Top half has the 'beer tab' hole threaded (vintage is not threaded, vintage 'beer tab' is riveted)
- Slide switch design and assembly is unique to our replica using a pin and e-clip (vintage is riveted)
- Red Button and Glass Eye arrive with a shiny chrome finish (vintage has a slightly dull finish)
- Brass pins arrive in raw form (vintages today contain oxidized brass pins with patina)
- Clamp does not have GRAFLEX letters filled in with black paint (some vintages still have this feature)
Product may slightly differ to the pictures as we continue to improve and push our replica more accurate every day!
