    Oct 9, 2007, 4:33 PM - My Han Solo Blaster... #1

    Hi everyone!

    So...I've been working on this for a few weeks now and today I finally finished it. I tried to do Solo's ESB blaster as accurate as possible without getting into trouble doing it in work. Overall I think it turned out pretty cool...What do you guys/gals think?

    Thank you!

    The gun itself is from Amazon and is a replica (non-firing) Mauser, it's like a soft metal....The scope is resin...The piston replica & scope bracket are aluminum as well as the flash hider. Thanks again

    Thanks!

    It took about 3 weeks off & on...I was a little bitter machining the flash hider...the knurling tool broke while using it-_-

    Looks nice! That's a "Denix" Mauser replica. It's what a lot of people use to build up DL-44s.
    I'd grab some pliers and remove that lanyard ring at the bottom of the grips. None of the Mauser-based SW blasters had that ring attached.

    Very cool! The machined aluminum flash hider makes the whole piece look very realistic.

    Thank you!

    It's definitely the most important piece...I misted it just a little with a flat black primer

    That looks really good!

    I started building one a while back with an airsoft, so I could actually shoot things lol. I ended up not going all the way with making it Han's and just left it as a generic DL-44. I didn't really want the scope and I haven't got any weathering on it.

    Cool stuff!

    LOL I've noticed on this and the X-Wing pilot blaster, the scope on the pistol is on the right hand side of the gun. Unless the person is left handed, this would make the scope useless unless you're firing it gangster sideways style, any clue why it's like that?
