EPISODE VI: RETURN OF THE JEDI
Used by: General Lando Calrissian
As the lights dimmed and the Alliance leaders spoke, General Lando Calrissian stood silently observing as the attack plan he would soon lead against the second Death Star was revealed. During this briefing before the Battle of Endor, Lando wore his full General uniform and this blaster pistol holstered at his side.
The prop is a modified Heckler and Koch P9S. This 9mm double-action pistol began production in 1970. In the early eighties the P9S was adopted by the US Navy SEALs as it's new standard suppressed pistol. Used throughout the 1980's and into the mid 90's, the SEAL version had a new flash suppressor and an adjustable sight like the P9 sport model. Since the prop has a standard fixed sight, Lando's blaster must have been built from the standard model not the SEAL or sport version.

A flash hider was added to the barrel of the gun. The exact brand and model are unknown.
Just in front of the trigger guard is another unidentified piece. Above the trigger guard, a ridged detail piece was used to hide the manufacturers marks on the side.
It appears a longer magazine was used and is protruding from the the gun's handle.
The parts used to make the blaster's scope are also unidentified.
