This is our new V3 made to order Star Wars Custom DH-17 Medium-range prop with blaze orange barrel plug. This prop is assembled from a 3-D printed PLA plastic and is then weathered. Our new version includes a reinforced body, moving trigger and switch along with a ton of cosmetic updates to make it accurate. I take the time to add a high gloss metal effect through out the prop to make it look like the original prop. The unfinished kit option is for a printed set of parts which you can assemble and paint on your own.
THE "DIY KIT" OPTION IS FOR A PRINTED SET OF PARTS WHICH YOU CAN ASSEMBLE AND PAINT ON YOUR OWN.
We recommend sanding by hand with 220 grit sandpaper and working up to 400-600 grit for final smoothing.
********DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF ELECTRIC TOOLS I.E. PAD SANDERS TO SMOOTH THE PARTS AS IT WILL MELT AND DEFORM THE PRODUCT.********
Alot of love goes into this process and I believe it really comes out in the final product!
The results may vary slightly from item to item since this is a made to order product.
DH-17 V3 Medium-range Replica Prop
The DH-17 was commonly used by soldiers of the Rebel Alliance for conflicts aboard starships, and sometimes the officers of the Galactic Empire carried it instead of the standard E-11. The pistol was dependable on a semiautomatic setting, firing in short bursts. The pistol could also be fired fully automatic, but the power would be drained in 20 seconds. It's high rate of fire and reasonable accuracy made it ideal for medium-range combat.
