Oh, how I love replica Star Wars props. For years, this was my holy grail. I finally cobbled one together a few years ago.
While this blaster isn’t 100% accurate, it’s good enough for me. It’s constructed from a resin-cast of a Mauser broomhandle pistol (the same pistol as the base of the real prop), with a resin copy of a screen accurate scope and cooling fins. The scope rings are real (picked up from a local sporting goods/gun shop), and I scratch-built the scope mount. The flash-supressor is a resin copy of the flash supressor from the Rubies toy blaster, which is surprisingly accurate in scale for a $12.00 toy.
One of these days, I’ll have to get a holster rig for this thing…

You’ll have to take a look at my holster once it’s done, which should be sometime in the next week to 9 days.
I’m excited to see your holster rig, Rob! It’s cool you’ll have it in time for “SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY”
