Hi guys, firstly a happy new year to you all.
I thought i would finally get round to telling you a story i heard in the summer. I had to collect a bag of Sterlings from a gun shop a couple of hours drive away. The shop was filled with de-act guns as well as a few live ones. I got talking to the owner, a very nice bloke, and found out that he was one of the first dealers to specialize in deactivated weapons in the late 70's. The talk finally got round to the Sterlings and the Star Wars connection, and then he amazed me with this story. The story go's he was called up by the studio to see if he wanted to buy some guns they no longer needed. when he got there he was shown a crate of Sterlings used in Star Wars, but on inspection he found they were made with alloy cast parts and so refused to buy them these blasters must have been from ROTJ. He also told me his friend picked one up and still has it in a cupboard. Maybe i'll try and ask to get some pics of it.
Out of interest how much dos a screen used ROTJ blaster go for?
