My Han Solo DL-44 Blaster is the result of years of fanatical research. I've procured all of the original elements possible including Veron model kit cylinders and pushrods, Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, and MG-81 flash suppressor and adapter. I've spec'd them all in minute detail. I've personally examined the re-assembled original blaster (sold at auction the summer of 2022 for $1,200,000) and measured it every conceivable way including weight. I've searched out the best manufacturers for each of the parts required to duplicate this prop, down to the screws. What I'm offering here is incredibly close to the real prop.
How fanatical? Well, I've reproduced every detail that can be reproduced, even details you will never see. Such as the barrel that was constructed with a heavy steel barrel cover, threaded to accept a rifle barrel for a Frank Sinatra spy movie. Such as a COMPLETE Hensold-Wetzlar scope with ALL INTERNAL PARTS, identical to the original scopes. Such as using 3 Veron model engine cylinders to construct the "grille". The scope mounting nuts have straight knurls. The scope tubes are real steel, not cheaper aluminum.
Grab one of these beautiful props while I can still make them! (I'm not getting any younger!)
Please note: This prop is currently being updated with exciting new features and far more accurate details. The photos shown here are of the current model, which will be updated as soon as the new, improved parts are ready.
Please note that this replica does not hold or fire real ammunition.
Disclaimer: Despite copying the lenses from real original Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, they unfortunately do not focus for distance.
QUESTIONS ABOUT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we do. But we do not know if these are legal in your country. That is for you to find out.
What about customs?
Paying the import duty your government imposes is your responsibility. Import duty is determined by your government after the shipment arrives in your country. We have no idea what your government will charge you to import anything we sell. We will not refund you the shipping charges if the parcel is returned because you refuse to pay import duty.
How much is shipping to the UK? Finland? Botswana?
Add the item to your shopping cart, go to your cart, then enter your shipping address. You will see real time quotes from USPS and UPS with the available service options and prices. These are the ACTUAL charges with nothing added. We make no money on shipping.
Do you ever have trouble shipping these to another country?
Occasionally, yes. We do sometimes experience delays with blasters going through customs, since they are difficult to classify. It is not unusual to experience delays up to two months in customs. USPS shipments are delayed more often than UPS shipments. About 80% of our shipments get through as expected.
Do you offer tracking?
Yes, both USPS and UPS offer tracking. USPS tracking is quite limited. After the parcel arrives at your country, your government's customs department takes possession of it. USPS can't track it beyond this point. After customs has inspected, classified, and taxed it, it is handed over to a local delivery service. This agency will collect the import duty and arrange delivery. You may be required to pick it up. UPS offers better tracking because they handle the package from door to door, including collecting the import duty.

This is even more amazing than I anticipated. It's beautiful, looks good in the hand and instantly transports you to your favorite scene. Love this.
I was extremely impressed by the quality and craftsmanship. I originally ordered the worn look and changed it to the new finish. I placed the order just before the pandemic and Todd keep my informed about any delays that may have occurred. A great experience
I am over the moon. This is a beautiful reproduction. I love the weight and feel of it. I look forward to putting it in to the holster I got for you a few yers ago. Thank you so very much. You have made me very happy!!!!
I couldn’t be more pleased with this piece. A perfect screen-accurate replica. I could be happier with the build and level of detail.
Very well put together. Solid construction with a nice weight. Todd was very responsive with questions and shipped it quick. Hoping to add on a holster soon.
I really love this blaster. The detail on in is stunning, the weight is great as well. I don’t have any complaints. I will say, I would have paid more for actual wood broom handle grips and a stand/ some sort of display. Besides that ship time was good, packaging was good. I’ll be putting it up on the shelf next to my blade runner blaster!
Best replica I know. Respect for the detailed work! Had only a few problems with the German customs. Had to explain who Han Solo is!
The original blaster unfortunately arrived with the sight broken off. Todd's service could not have been better. Sent it back, and had a quick repair and turn around. Great looking blaster and outstanding service. Cannot recommend more! Beautiful and accurate blaster!
You can't beat the heft and authentic look of this battle-worn blaster. Keep up the great work with your offerings, Todd! Thank you for a great product!
