I got both of my original Droid callers from them till I upgraded... they are not a bad deal at all. You might need to do a bit of cleaning on the castings, but its not much. The one advice I have to those who have metal clips holding these droid callers is to use allot of no gloss clear coat on the finnished resin callers. You do not want to dig into the paint or ruin your hard work. A few layers of clear coat should help there.... helps add a realism to them as wewll when your done with painting them.

I've lined the inside of the C-clamp with self adhesive velcro tape (fuzzy-side ONLY).

--> the only part of the clamp which touches the droid caller now, is the fuzzy lining on the inside of the C-clamp. Cool (no scratches).

it can't be seen, when the droid caller is in the clamp.

it acts as a buffer, between the clamp and the droid caller, to prevent metal-on-metal contact.

(AND it keeps the droid caller snugly in place, so it doesn't spin/flop around in the clamp).

Evolution's droid caller is ok, bit the paint comes off with the slightest chratch. Will have to repaint mine very soon. Also it does not sit well on the belt.

helps it sit snugly ; prevents scratches. Wink done and done.

I actually did the Velcro as well on mine as well and it really works. I do not know which belt you have that would allow it to spin, but the clamp that holds the droid caller can always be redone. Cut out the rivets and make a new one.

This is I did mine to prevent it from spinning. 2 separate pieces of metal riveted together, and trapping the clamp ... preventing it from spinning.

You can just see the white Velcro on the inside of the far part of my clamp.

I put my velcro on the Caller (Hook side) and on the clamp (Loop side aka fuzzy side). The thing doesent move or scratch!!! A little Velcro goes a long way!
