Probe Droid's photos were very helpful in assuring that blaster had one of the custom lathed scope bells and not a real one like the other Han MGC
I don't want to de-rail - maybe this would be a good discussion in another thread, but:I don't think any of these are "owned" by anyone, and none of them are private images. Please correct me RPF if there is something I missed. I found these through pintrest, the RPF and google over the years, or screenshotted them from the movie myself. The PropBlog shot was color corrected by someone on here publicly
I’ll add a little clarification to that section. Thanks for the heads up.One thing to note, the ANH Hero was also in the Greedo portion of the Cantina scene. The closeups were the Alternate DL-44, but in all of the other shots, it was the Hero blaster in his holster and in his hand..when he 'actually' shot Greedo =b
Thanks,Transferring this discussion. Maybe it’s been forgotten, maybe it’s been discounted.
I believe there were 3 blasters (excluding resins) used in ESB.
1) MGC based Hoth
2) Full port Live Fire DL-44, often referred to as Han’s
3) Cut port Live Fire DL-44, often referred to as Luke’s.
I suspect also that in the scene where Han shoots, the blasters were only capable of firing one round. Having built a few real Mauser blasters now, the threaded studding messes up with the magazine, so it was probably not functional and could only hold one round. Hence the two pistols.
