Han Solo's ESB Hoth DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol

Han Solo's ESB Hoth DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol

JediCharles
This is Han Solo's blaster from The Empire Strikes Back, Hoth version. It is based on a German Mauser C96 "Broom Handle" automatic pistol with the addition of "greeblies" which are added to give the prop its iconic look. It is decorated with parts from the Revell Visible V8 plastic model, a M19 Telescope for a Sherman tank manufactured by Minneapolis Honeywell Regulator Company, and a custom milled muzzle meant to resemble the flash hider used on the A New Hope version of the prop. This Hoth version varies only slightly from the Bespin version in the flash hider and the way the scope mounts to the body of the pistol: there are just two knurled stripes on the flash hider and a beveled transition to the flared portion, and instead of the knurled knob on the mount, there is a round disc with three machine screws. #Blaster #Broom_Handle #C96 #DL44 #ESB #Han_Solo #Hoth #Mauser #Star_Wars #The_Empire_Strikes_Back
