DH-17 blaster rifles were a type of blaster rifle manufactured by BlasTech Industries and originally employed by the Rebel Alliance. Some of the surviving ground forces of the Resistance used refurbished DH-17 blaster rifles while fighting in the trenches against the First Order during the Battle of Crait. The refurbished rifles had hand-calibrated macroscopes and were black and silver in color.
