What is giving it away as an M712? The hammer? It looks a little too square compared to what I'm used to seeing.

Damn, yes!

I missed the mag release in the shadow.

Very pleased that this version for TFA makes my build more accurate.

If we get an image of the other side we can see if the semi-auto dial is there

I was wanting to start a discussion of the various blasters of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now I know there are already some threads and builds going on such as the Stormtroopers' blaster rifle and sidearm.

I was hoping we could share and discuss details of other blaster as we start to acquire more info.

For starters I found this blaster interesting:

This is a blaster that comes with the Disney Store Elite die cast 6" Rey figure. Not sure if it is her personal blaster or just something she picks up for a short time and utilizes in the film. I thought it looked interesting and it appears to have some broom handle influences.
Got our first glimpse of the real blaster:

As to Hans blaster;
it definitely is NOT the same as the ANH HERO.... Very similar, yet has 'knobs' (some sort of thumb screw perhaps) to BOTH sides and no "mystery disc".. The scope seems to indeed be a Hensoldt (probably a dark energy)...
Once I'm near a computer, we'll see if I can't post a few of the screen grabs I took today
....OH!!! And, I believe it IS an M712 and not the C96 also-

I've also found a "mystery blaster" scene where the scope is on the wrong side-
When Han wrestles his blaster from the fallen trooper!!
Perhaps due to the negative getting flipped? Or a multitude of props....
EDIT: I've just re watched the scene and Han is shooting with his LEFT hand- leading me to believe they've definitely flipped the negative!
