Recommended Posts

The ANH E-11 blaster prop was built from a British-made Sterling L2A3 sub-machine gun. in this advanced weaponry section i will provide references and blueprints on the original props base and components

the main features the separate the ANH E-11 from props seen in the other films is the Hengstler box and cylinders and wires on the magazine housing..

 

first i will provide references and data for a original sterling L2A3 machine gun

 

the current base CRL states "BlasTech E-11 Blaster: Based on a real or replica Sterling sub-machine gun" for centerion requirements all major external details should be present as on a sterling or sterling replica (the parts do not need to function)

the scope

 

There different tank style scopes used in the OT. The numbers only indicate the scope style used, since there is no definite way to read the model numbers

the cylinders and wires are also unique to ANH blasters (also note the wooden block in the magazine)
