    Well, I just got back from a visit to Rich's home to pick up the latest and final version of the Blade Runer Blaster based off the Wondercon discovered (Thanks Karl Tate!) actual filming prop. Rich had done a few runs of these over the past few years, tweaking it when new discoveries have come to light. This latest version included the new removable ammo clip feature which he is certain was present on the filming prop but never seen on screen. This prop is a true masterpiece and it is HEAVY. Rich also posted a video showing the new features:

    So without further ado, here are the pics!

    OMG, I am so in love with this gun. Have over the years drooled over it...and now that it's as close as you can get to the Hero version...I'm def. gonna start saving me some pennies. I've always heard ONE time in ONE viewing of this film..back in the day, they actual showed a delted scene where Deckard actaully reloads it..not sure if ANY of that film scene exists today, I have never seen any grainy screen grabs of that, so I'm guessing it may be lost forever, much like the scene in Highlander where Connor shows BRenda his sword in bed..(wow, that sounded wrong..lol) Also I knowthat the green leds were on the Hero prop, but are there good screen grabs showing both ends lite up. Need to go back and watch again. Great looking gun, and thanks Richard for making this possible, you'll be hearing from me before the year is out....:cool

    Yeah, Rich has a few working guns in progress in his shop. In regards to footage of the ammo clip being removed, Rich can share what he learned but I know he wasn't able to track down a onscreen reference.

    I have hear of that reloading scene, but so far no one has show it.

    But based on the fact that there were two ammo housings and clips with the oringinal gun and that a couple were sold at auction that makes some four being known, seems very good evendence they were made to shoot such a scene, and I would think they did at some time film Deckard reloading.

    At lease two were rigged that because they left the upper housing intact and not cut down to fit the gun, could only be used outside the gun and a switch pulled when they wanted it slipped fulling into the housing.

    The things they do in Hollywood on a film...

    Thanks for sharing those wonderful photos, Bryancd. I think they capture the colour and details of the newest C,S&T blaster beautifully.

    Out of curiosity, is the finish on the upper receiver "as first issued" (i.e. like new) or did you ask Rich for something else? I ask because I recently placed an order for this model, with an "as first issued" look, and I would love it if this were the finish I'd be getting. However, in the other photos I've seen to date, the receiver looks brighter than what I'm seeing in your photos.

    The problem I have run into is that real stainless steel barrels are also brighter than the photos we have of the 30 year old prop, so that the barrels will not pop out too much I have taken to lighting the blacking finish of the whole gun to closer match these barrels.

    IF anyone knows of a simple way to darker these barrels...I might be interested...but bluing is too many steps...

    A one step darking system is what I would like...

    Dark spray paint into a cloth and rub and buff that barrel. Done.

    Thanks for the info Rich. A slightly darker barrel might be a bit more authentic-looking, but honestly, at this point, that would just be the icing on the cake... your blaster already looks pretty amazing. But I agree--if it were possible to darken easily it would be worth looking into. I read up on bluing, but as you said it seemed like a bit of work. I've read a few times of people using black shoe polish, but I'm not sure how good or permanent the results are. I'd be interested in seeing the results of the spray paint method PoopaPapaPalps suggested.

    On a separate note, I was wondering: have you recently changed or repositioned the front trigger? In some older photos (such as here: Richard A Coyle 2011 Blade Runner Blaster | Flickr - Photo Sharing!) it looks like it was a tad farther forward and dipped lower. It seems to look perfect in Bryancd's photos now though.

    Well, those small changes and improvements don't go unnoticed. Thanks for all the attention to detail you continue to put into your blasters. It's definitely appreciated.

    If it works to your liking, be sure to send me a kit of the blaster for me to inspect. ;)
