"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." - Han Solo
Han Solo's DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol
This reveal has been a long time coming but is finally here! Like last time, the assembly of the blaster was based upon the designs of Scottjua. In fact it is thanks to Scott that I got the parts I needed!
Denix base with real wooden grips
Dark Energy Creations aluminum/pewter cast blaster kit
Todd's steel flash hider
Plecter Labs Blaster Core v3
Superflux barrel LED
The ANH DL-44 definitely requires a lot more machining work than an ESB style but the end results are more than worth it! DEC did a fantastic job on their kit and it turns the Denix into something completely new. All bare metal parts were painted black with the exeption of the bull barrel and the knobs which were blued with Birchwood Casey aluminum black. I even took the time to drill through the barrel and add lights!
There is an indescribable joy to having this iconic Star Wars weapon, probably second only to the saber itself! Thanks for looking, all!

ARKM: Happy eclipsemageddon day! I live in Oregon within the path of totality. The sun should be fully eclipsed here at 10:19am PDT.

ARKM: If I don't get super powers from this, I'm going to be very disappointed. Crap! I'm going to be very disappointed.

ARKM: The eclipse was cool. It got really dark during totality. I don't think I got any super powers though... wait. I may have x-ray vision... I can see through my retina.
