About 15 years ago my grandfather gave me a blaster and told me it was from one of the movies. Im trying to get some info about it, like what movie its from and what kind of blaster it is. any info would be great thank you. :confused
It's not quite the DL-21. It's really close and it obviously based off it, but the details are different. The barrel shroud has been cut down, the barrel itself is wonky, and the grip looks different (and much nicer) than the DL-21's.
Honestly I like this version better.
I would love to have this blaster...it looks so natural and comfortable, it would be a great "gunslinging" type of weapon.
Regardless of it's 'accuracy', I don't doubt it's authenticity. Think about how many Rebel soldier extras there are in ROTJ, not to mention ESB. I would be willing to bet this gun was worn by one of them - or even if not, present on the set as a backup or something. Stranger things have happened.
I was home examining the BLASTER and this is what i found. The barrel is a thick metal like its from a real gun, there is even a place where the bolt went. the trigger. trigger guard and piece that connects to the barrel is made of a plastic or resin. The muzzle/ flash suppressant is made of metal.
Nooo. That's not a mauser. I've haven't seen one with the mag well stepped in the front like that and with the oval shapes in the side of the receiver. Plus, it has the same greeblie on the side and the big nozzle front. Although the one I posted above looks more like a water hose nozzle.
The guy above is holding a variation of one of these Hoth blasters which is a deactivated Charter Arms AR-7 Explorer .22LR semi-auto rifle:
Actually, the more I look at it, the more it looks like the OT's pistol has had the mortar fins cut off...
