Did anyone figure out what was on the left side of the blaster or is this still a mystery?

I think it's possible that something was glued onto the left side and it simply fell off at some point:

The ejector port on a Ruger is on the right, correct? I remember the greeblie set that covers that.

Mine is blank on that left side, I think because we just never found out. the Gray color definitely looks like bare resin (resin cast gun, greeblies all painted black anyway). I'd have to agree something fell off

It's still a total mystery, unfortunately. It's some sort of rectangular block shaped piece with smaller arm like things protruding from both sides.

There's also some shallow, tiny circular things behind that as well, towards the rear end of the upper closer to the bolt, but those could also be due to something in the molding process. Sadly we can't see that side nearly well enough to tell what's really going on there..

I wanted to see if I could spark the conversation for the greebles on the other side. I know some people have gone with the pontoon tomtit piece to match the other side but i do not buy that.

The piece(s) appears to be longer and has something flat on the outside.

OdiWan72 , look like any sort of Michelle Turntable part?

Could this be one of the large resistors from an E11 or the mouse droid?

Just to add on to my past comment. There could be another pontoon piece on that side but if there is, then I think there is some other part stacked on top of it. Something longer than the double coaxial connectors on the other side.

Can someone please share the provenance of the prop shown on the first page of this thread? Is it known that this Ruger becomes the Greedo blaster?

I'm trying to determine the grip frame variation of the base gun.

I think it was from the same gun rental company, this ruger has a shorter first shoulder than normal, it was machined down somehow. That's a good indicator to follow the gun

Thanks for info, and that would make sense. Regarding the barreled upper, that Ruger actually has a longer first step than a standard model, which would lead me to believe that they turned down a bull barrel version...

(Both models shown above have A-54 grip frames, btw, and the one from the gun rental company is an A-100.)

I'm sorry, the shoulder closest to the receiver not the barrel. It's turned down, making the first step longer

Correct. That is the gun that Bapty used.
The base of the barrel is threaded to accept some sort of attachment/sleeve. It appears to be just a custom Mark I they had lying around.

The cone inside the barrel is not the same as the AT-AT driver tusks.
It's from the earlier sweep arm. The same model was used as R5-D4's antenna.
The later sweep arm wasn't used until ESB (AT-AT driver, Boba Fett, and a million other things).

Pretty sure it was a standard Mk1 at some point, not the bull barrel.
The barrel is completely 'new'. The front of the frame is cut down and the barrel is apparently threaded in.
The new barrel has a bunch of stamped markings down the side. I'm not sure what they mean.
