Since I’m not a Star Wars nerd I thought this was going to be boring, but it’s actually quite interesting:
Incredible attention to detail. As they mention in the video, there is a whole thread on a fan forum called Replica Prop Forum (RPF) which is dedicated to researching the detail of the Han Solo blaster and sourcing all the components.
There is a huge article over at Tested detailing the story of how fans recreated the original blaster down to the last detail.
I would have preferred them to build this on a real Mauser C96, but this is still quite cool. Quite the workshop they have there! MYTH: BUSTED! uh wait.. there wasn’t a myth.
