    Seems to be the case. Glocks in what looks like mildly modified carbine conversion kits, with a good old Han Solo DL-44 blaster muzzle.

    Glock fans rejoice!

    So tac rails are canon now? I guess that's one less thing to have to mod on Nerfs to customize them into Star Wars-y blasters...

    Yup, glocks for sure!

    New rebel blaster is G36 based, Poe's blaster is Sig 226 based!

    I'm glad they're using real firearms as bases, its very true to the OT.

    World War 2 weapon bases for the OT era and modern weapon bases for the ST era - the timeline works perfectly lol.

    I haven't seen Poe's blaster. Do you happen to have a photo? Are all the pilots carrying the same blasters?

    If the blaster Finn has been seen with is the G36 based, it just seems to be the grip frame. It's a big boxy beats of a blaster. :)

    I don't really have a problem with using modern guns as the base weapons if they do something interesting with them. The Glock thing isn't particularly creative. I doubt it's going to feature in the film much anyway.

    Glock is crazy about replicas and their copyright. But I bet they had no problem being used in SW.

    I'm going to wait to see the actual prop first, but that's kind of what I'm thinking too. I still don't like the white on the Stormtrooper guns though. It's like they hired a fashion designer to match everything up...

    Also changed the flash hider and trimmed the trigger.

    Both upper and lower frame of the G36 was used for the rebel blaster.

    The only shot I have of Poe's blaster is from the lager scale Hasbro toy:

    Yeah that's a sig! I like it.

    Great job on that nerf conversion.

    I'm expecting to see a lot of TFA nerf blasters at conventions. ;)

    Small, but not too bad looking.

    Sundowner got it I think. Pretty sure that's a FAB defense KPOS carbine conversion for a Glock 19.

    SW_glock_mako.jpg

    Or more likely airsoft knock offs.

    Also, I could be very wrong about it not featuring. IT's being used in promos!

    the 501st CRL states:

    "Based on a replica Glock 19 repeating pistol, scratch built, or a modified commercial stormtrooper toy."

    The airsoft replica of this particular carbine kit are out of production, so more likely a real FAB Defense kit. Which is annoying, price-wise.

    Or at least, 30% of one, since you can really only see the handle, trigger guard, and a small portion of the slide. The rest is all carbine kit :p

    I was thinking the same thing. Time will tell. Once the film hits we'll have a lot more to look at.

    I'm kind of interested to see if they used any live fire blanked guns in the film.

    I'm not expecting that they did.

    Definitely appears to be a Gen 1 KPOS from FAB Defense. However, I do not believe it to be a G36 for two reasons.

    1. The grip is more styled after the G19, the G36 would be a bit shorter and thicker.

    2. The KPOS has never been made for a G36, but has been for the 21 and 30 (thicker slides on these two 45 variants). I believe the G1 KPOS was only made for Glock 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 34.

    I was referring to the rebel blaster (Finn blaster rifle) - an HK G36 was used.

    The stormtrooper blaster pistol is a either a Glock 19 or 17.

    I just hope they're portrayed as being as competent as Clone Troopers. (I know an argument can be made that the ones on the Death Star were ordered to let them escape, but that doesn't explain losing to teddy bears.)

    Teddy bears that are clearly at the top of the food chain, and don't mind eating other sentient technologically advanced creatures :). Deep down lets face it, those vicious little suckers are cannibals and will eat anything. I bet they had a really good feed after the battle of endor :eek:

    I don't know if regular humans could perform as well as genetically engineered super soldiers, but I hope they are shown as competent soldiers.

    EXACTLY Sluis :) No way you can be that small and clumsy AND still be at the top (or near the top) of the food chain without a vicious streak. I wonder what they normally use those catapults on?

    Are we sure on the exact model/gen? These pics look too blurry to rule out a 19 or a 17 Gen 4 (to my eyes).

    Once we get some better photos I think it will be easier to figure out what mods need to be done (especially the sight and white plates over the grip).

    If looking for an alternative, Umarex makes a version of the FAB Stock setup as an airpistol called the XBG. Comes with a detachable pistol and a side folding shoulder stock. I bought one a couple of years back at Walmart for $60 bucks for use as a bounty hunter blaster. Looks like I can still use it after some mods.
    I'll try to post pics when I can.

    Part of the sight is a M16 A2 Front Sight Block.

    I've been after it too. I ordered it from one site and they promised to deliver, but after 6 weeks said it would not be restocked. I have seen the real deal for sale in the $600 range.

    Same deal. I ordered from the ONLY place on the web that had it in stock and got an email saying it's no longer in production. If I could snag a used one for under 3 bills I would * it up. I'm afraid 3D printing (including design) would cost an arm and a leg.

    The official name of this is the Sonn-Blas SE-44C blaster pistol (the caption with this name was for the white one, but the black variant is not specified differently)

    Pics posted elsewhere, but adding them here for direct reference:

    Now that we have some better pictures surfacing of the blaster I am convinced the chassis is custom built. The two closest in design are the FAB Defense (AABB KOO in airsoft) and Umarex (airsoft) carbine kits. After comparing them closely I really feel this is a custom build.

    The bottom of the sight looks to be part of an AR rear sight. The photos of the props have a cast of a Glock 17 with a different trigger added in place of a Glock trigger which may explain why, to me at least, why the Glock cast looks somewhat rough in the photos. As there is a part covering the back of the grip, right where a grip safety would be, it is difficult to tell whether the original pistol used for the cast was a Gen3 or Gen4. I suspect the former is likely to have been available to prop makers when they started work.
    Oh, a bit of trivia, NASA security folks do use Glocks.

    The scale of the sight needs to be reevaluated. It definitely has elements from a M16 A2 front sight block and the rear portion does look similar to that of the rear sight adjustment. It also looks like there may be part of a charging handle there.

    Scale wise though the real parts are way too big. Here is a real FSB next to the Glock 17.[​IMG]

    Could it possibly be from a mini airsoft M16?
