Luke Skywalker's DL-44 Blaster from ''The Empire Strikes Back''. This iconic hero gun is the same model used by Han Solo, a design based on the German issue Mauser C96 pistol and custom made by casting the original prop used in the first ''Star Wars''. Gun retains its original flash suppressor and scope, though it does not (and never did) fire, making it the lighter model used in the movie for non-firing scenes. Made of gray, silver and brown colored fiberglass. Blaster was gifted to original owner by Hamill during an episode of ''Jim'll Fix It'', a children's show on BBC Television. Measures 12''. Gun is in original 1980 filming condition and has some wear, including one glued section. Overall very good condition. With provenance from Sotheby's 18 March 1998 sale, as lot 48. A very rare and desirable piece of ''Star Wars'' history.
