Star Wars A New Hope Stormtrooper DLT-19 Blaster Rifle

SCREEN-USED HERO FIRING STORMTROOPER DLT-19 HEAVY BLASTER RIFLE FROM STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE. – (TCF, 1977) In the first groundbreaking Star Wars film the Imperial Stormtroopers (as well as the Sandtroopers on Tatooine) can be seen armed with large DLT-19 heavy blasters which have superior range over the smaller blasters used by the majority of the Imperial forces. This spectacular weapon is based on a World War II-era German MG 34 machine gun (now deactivated) crafted of heavy steel, measuring approx. 48 in. in length., and features a fold-down, footed stand and wooden stock. At the time of filming, Bapty & Co., the legendary British movie weapon makers/suppliers for over 90 years, supplied the weapons for Star Wars and only had four live firing MG 34’s, all of which can be seen on a gun rack in the communications room on the Death Star. This is one of two weapons possessing a Bakelite stock unique to the DLT-19 that Chewbacca fires in the detention block, giving this weapon a 50% chance of being used by Chewbacca in the famous jail break scene during Princess Leia’s bold rescue! Following the weapon’s use in Star Wars, Bapty removed the studio dress t-shaped polymer “vent fins” that span the length of the barrel. Still bearing the marks from where the original dressing resided, expertly replicated strips were crafted and installed returning this weapon to its screen appearance. This represents the only Star Wars DLT-19 heavy blaster ever offered at public auction and it is accompanied with a custom made stand metal stand for display. Comes with the original deactivation certificate issued when the weapon was rendered non-firing. An incredibly impressive and rare piece from the beloved Star Wars franchise. Special shipping arrangements will apply. Estimate $30,000 – $50,000 Starting Bid $30,000
