"Take over. We've got a bad transmitter. I'll see what I can do"
The famous last words of the Death Star Gantry officer before being laid out on the floor by a blow from Chewbacca. Holstered at his side was this blaster prop.
This prop was made from a resin copy of a German broomhandle Mauser pistol.

A coiled antique camera flash cord with plug was placed on the top. The exact model cord is not yet known.
This blaster is almost an exact duplicate of the Merr-Sonn "Power" 5, except this prop lacks the flash suppressor and a few other detail parts.
