• How the Mauser C96 inspired the 'Star Wars' DL-44 Blastech Blaster pistol

      Guns.com has a very interesting article on how the Mauser C96 inspired the Star Wars DL-44 Blaster pistol.



      I happen to be an accidental authority on Star Wars. I teach a college research writing class based on the Star Wars extended universe. So every spring, when the class is offered, I'm inundated in essays about all things Star Wars.

      I'm old enough to have seen A New Hope in the theater (and all of the rest, too). I loved the movies as a kid. I played with there action figures. I was always Luke Skywalker. I wanted to be Han Solo.

      I still want to be Han Solo. Whenever I see a Mauser C96, I get a little wistful. But not for the old broom handle artifact. I want a DL-44 Blastech Blaster Pistol. And I want to be cool.

      We're movin' on up: cheapest here is now $2.54, but most are just under $3. And Pittsburgh is 5-5 in its last ten games; much better than losing 13

      Agreed Though I'm going to sell my ESB ATA and the ANH TE2. I would keep them too since they are great, but simply don't have enough space alas.

      The League Season VII, decent but it ran out of steam a few years earlier imho.
