Now THIS is a good blaster to have at your side!  Perfect for display, conventions, collecting, or just because it's cool!

Our long awaited Han Solo DL-44 Blaster is the result of a year and a half's worth of fanatical research. We've procured all of the original elements that are currently available including Veron model kit cylinders and pushrods, Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, and MG-81 flash suppressor and adapter. We've spec'd them all in minute detail. We've searched out the best manufacturers for each of the parts required to duplicate this prop, down to the screws. What we're offering here is incredibly close to the real prop.

How fanatical?  Well, we've reproduced every detail that COULD be reproduced, even those details you will never see. Such as the threaded bull barrel (the original custom Mauser was made for a Frank Sinatra spy movie and included a threaded rifle barrel that could be screwed on.)  Such as the internal scope parts with painted surfaces and bare surfaces exactly as the original scopes. Such as using 3 Veron cylinders to construct the "grille" instead of making an easier, simpler (and cheaper) one piece grille. Yep, now THAT is fanatical!

We offer 2 finishes. "Factory New" (pictured on WHITE background) is as the DL-44 would have appeared in the laser gun store display case. "Battle Worn" (pictured on BLACK background) is as close as we can come to the finish as used on screen.

For the "battle worn" finish we do our best to duplicate every scratch and chip that is visible in the available reference photos.  The entire model gun is disassembled, and buffed by hand to simulate years of handling. The bolt, hammer, and thumbscrew are given a dull finish with a fiber wheel.  The scope and scope bracket are tumbled in a container of abrasives to simulate the dings, dents, and scratches seen on the original. Then we hand-chip the paint on the ends of the scope, the scope mounting bar, and thumb nuts using original photos as reference. We add the distinctive scratches to the sides of the scope, and burnish the flash hider to a grey finish. Then we use a variety of sandpapers to highlight certain hi-wear edges and corners. It's a crazy amount of work.

Features include:

Custom made Hensoldt-Wetzlar scope made of all original materials, and real optical lenses! More than 27 individual parts!

Grille made of 3 Veron model kit cylinders

Denix C-96 Mauser replica customized especially for this prop

Steel bull barrel complete with threads for the rifle barrel extension (as seen when the original gun appeared in "Naked Runner")

Custom made steel MG81 flash hider and mounting collar

Steel scope mounting bracket and hardware

Barrel greeblies made of PVC and ABS plastic

Functioning hammer, trigger and bolt!

Grab one of these beautiful props while we can still make them available!

We now have these in stock for immediate delivery!

Disclaimer: Despite copying the lenses from real original Hensoldt-Wetzlar scopes, they unfortunately do not focus for distance.

    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!

    Great Blaster, great service

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Dec 2018

    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!

    Makes me want to shoot first

    Posted by Owen Truesdell on 12th Dec 2018

    Everything I hoped that it would be! Great detailing and the weight makes it feel incredibly realistic and not like a prop or toy. Would highly recommend the battle finish for the extra realism! 12/10 would recommend.

    The best Solo Blaster

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Dec 2018

    This is by far the best Hans Solo DL44 Blaster !
    All metal and perfect Battle Worn condition.
    Was looking at the Master Replicas Blaster but asking prices were over 2 thousand dollars.
    Get this over the MR as it is so much better.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Nothing like a good blaster at your side!

    Posted by james jones on 30th Nov 2018

    I was completely blown away by this blaster. I went with the battle worn version and wish I had money for the clean one as well. Todd’s Costumes make the absolute best DL44 you can get. Everyone I show this to is amazed at how nice it is. Truly amazing. Thank you to the artists at TC for their amazing attention to detail. Shipped super fast as well.

    Stunning detail, authentic "feel": You won't find better unless you work for BlasTech

    Posted by Dave C on 6th Oct 2018

    The pictures on the site are great... and they don't even begin to highlight the authentic look and feel of this piece. Meticulously assembled and absolutely rock solid, it has the mass and density of a an actual firearm. The grip feels natural in large hands, and the hammer/trigger mechanism are smooth with appropriate weight in their movement. The scope, though not optically useful, is beautifully assembled and mounted. You can display this... but holding it is irresistible. Get the "worn" model. Trust me.

    Bottom line: this is an investment-grade piece of memorabilia, and I rarely say this, but this piece is easily worthy of the steep price. I challenge anyone short of Mr. Ford himself (or an actual Corellian smuggler) to find a more authentic looking and feeling reproduction anywhere, at any price. Great job, Todd's Costumes, on being faithful to the original in every reasonable way.

    Absolutely incredible

    Posted by Curtis on 21st Sep 2018

    There’s no doubt about it - this piece is an investmen, but for die hard Solo fans who want the real deal, you simply can’t go wrong with Todd’s. It is worth every single penny. As soon as I took it out of the box and felt the actual weight, the quality of the weathering, I felt like I was holding Han Solo’s actual blaster! Will definitely cherish this thing for years to come.
