    EDIT: Scroll Down for Pics of blaster....


    I was at a rummage sale today and spotted this Daisy BB pistol laying on a table. I managed to pick it up for .99 cents.

    Now I know it's not the correct model for the Jabba's Palace blaster (I've been researching it lately because I've been on a blaster kick) but I think with a little work I could use it as a base to make a sweet palace blaster. It won't be perfectly accurate but I think I can make it close enough that people will recognize it as such. I'm always in search of a bargain.. I'll probably post pics of the next couple weeks as I work on it.

    Hah, for .99cents I don't think it matters if it's the right model. Great find.

    Wow. Blast from the past. I had that model BB gun when I was kid. Good memories...

    That should make a fine blaster. As others have stated, there are a LOT of guns in the Star Wars universe. So what is it isn't 100% screen accurate.

    Made by the company 'Daisy', it fires BB's (or Bee-Bee's)

    I have that exact same gun, got it for free from a friend in about 1999.

    Thanks for the input guys. Yeah, I'm actually modding it make it look more like a panther, and then I'm going to convert it. Pics coming later.

    Cheers.

    Finished up a custom blaster with it today. Wasn't happy with it as a base for the Palace Blaster, so I just hacked it up, and used the guts to make a new barrel for it, and greeblied the hell out of it. The scope is a hardware one.

    That was used as a laser pistol in the 80's 3-d movie "Parasite", which had a young Demi Moore in it. It was dressed up with some plastic rods and got smashed early in the movie. The reason I remember it is because my brother had that same model at the time.
