The BlasTech DL-18 blaster pistol was an inexpensive blaster commonly used during the time of the Galactic Civil War.

HistoryEdit

Luke-DL18
Luke Skywalker aims a DL-18 at Jabba the Hutt.

As a result of the inexpensive price, members of the Rebel Alliance often carried DL-18s and Sith Shadows favored them when carrying out raids as it was essentially a disposable weapon. The pistol generated only average power, and had some difficulty penetrating stormtrooper armor. It was manufactured in the same series as the more powerful DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. A very basic design which thrived throughout the galaxy for decades, the DL-18 balanced multiple virtues and could be easily customized to the wielder's preferences. Its chief competitors were Merr-Sonn's Model 44 and DD6.

A DL-18 measured about 1 kg in weight.

Weapons of this make were common on Tatooine (several of Jabba the Hutt's skiff guards used DL-18 pistols), especially in the infamously violent city of Mos Eisley; hence, the model was sometimes nicknamed the "Mos Eisley Special".

Behind the scenesEdit

The Rebel Alliance Sourcebook and Arms & Equipment Guide both feature incorrect images of the DL-18. The correct, canonical image is sometimes referred to informally as a "Skiff guard pistol" and can be seen clearly in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
