Curious looking Blade Runner Blaster

I'm sure some of you saw this. It's ended now, so I really would like to discuss this with the boards. It strikes me as an odd looking blaster, not just for the fact that it only has one trigger, but the shape of the trigger, and the contour above, both look very wrogn to me. The placement of the sight rod is off, and the grip looks way too thin.

Does anyone know where this gun may have come from it is not authentic? Or if it is, was there a blaster on set with this kind of toy gun looking trigger? With a light that came on over the BARREL??

Here is someof the verbage from the auction.

On Apr-05-06 at 09:04:31 PDT, seller added the following information:

As seen in the picture of the point of the gun facing you, when you pull the trigger a red light comes on from the top part of the barrel. The prop gun is heavy but doesn't not appear to be primarily made out of metal rather a very heavy plastic

Due to the request of some potential bidders the following is the wording on the Guarantee of Authenticity in the pictures above:

This is to certify that the items(s) described above has been examined, and it is the opinion of WALT DISNEY ATTRACTIONS, INC. that this item is authentic.

if, at any time, this item is proven to be other than as represented, WALT DISNE ATTRACTIONS, INC. will offer an immediate refund of the purchase price, which shall be purchaser's sole remedy of claim.

I'm not sure what the whole "As seen in the picture of the point of the gun facing you, when you pull the trigger a red light comes on from the top part of the barrel." is all about, never saw this in any of the pics. Which are below.

Dam I hope he would pull it, I told him it was one of my first models and that it WAS NOT OFF the set.

Bugger.

I was pretty sure it was yours, almost Pm'd you.

That is why I really hate when this seller puts stuff up for auction. There is no way that came out of a Disney prop archive. Where does this guy get his stuff?

I hope so it was not that great a model, it did once have two triggers, the rear was power on adn the front fired the gun, in early versions only a light in the barrel is a slightly later one sound and light.

If he needs info feel free to send him to me at racprops@cox.net

Damn, I was afraid of that. I even surfed over to Adam Savage's website to compare and noticed it was not the same. I emailed the seller as well. So this guy is a crook then? Man, I hate to see this. So the refund offer is probably BS.
