This is pretty neat (source):

Looks like the scope is extended at the front and there's something covering the mystery disk. Obviously, the design is based on the Mauser C96 carbine (source):

I wonder if it'll be modified and become Han's DL-44, although that would be a bit weird since DL-44s have always looked like Han's, so maybe it'll just be a variant (like the E-11D).

Edit: this also explains why the scope is on the right side of the blaster: Woody Harrelson is left-handed.

I think it's more a nod to the multipart sniper rifle from The Naked Runner and The Sweeney. Both supplied by Bapty, who used the same bases for the ANH Mauser-based blasters.

Sinatra's in The Naked Runner had the scope mount on the left side:

This was likely the receiver used for the Imperial blasters, as the resin blanks used as holster stuffers had sawn-off posts on the left side in those positions. I really am not sure how the scope changed sides. What I mean is they could have just drilled holes on the right side, but the mystery disc is the only indication of anything on the left side -- there's no matching feature toward the rear of the receiver.

My vote is for a blaster more resembling this, though, than the C96 carbine. The carbine had a fixed barrel, rather than this one's threaded/removable one. Plus the bull barrel to attach it was an aftermarket addition Bapty made, and isn't on any commercially-made C96.

Sorry for the poor photo, but this image appears in the Art of Solo book. Nothing obvious in the DK Guide. The Art book has a lot of images of Beckett's pistols, inc how they open for ammo, but no idea how much of this, if any, made the final prop. 20180528_101003.jpg 20180528_101003.jpg

I'm unable to find that scene - I remember it seeming like the flash hider had a magnet in it that got it to snap into place

Here's a higher-res image of the Nerf Beckett blaster. It's got a great side-on profile of the carbine, but the sling mount is covering the greeblies requested.

I actually picked up one of these Nerf blasters a couple days ago for $12 at Ross! My kids won’t let me have it back.

There’s a pic on the back that shows the full barrel, here’s a quick snap.

If anyone is interested I can post the side view diagram from the instructions. It’s out of whack and not accurate of course...
