The DL-21 was a blaster pistol produced by BlasTech Industries at some point prior to the Battle of Hoth.

DescriptionEdit

Blaster pistol btm

A modified DL-21 owned by Ponda Baba

The DL-21 was similar in appearance to other BlasTech pistols, such as the DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. However, this version featured a flared muzzle, which produced scattered energy charges. It also featured a top-mounted targeting scope, and a safety lever inside the trigger guard.

HistoryEdit

Since BlasTech refused to enter into an exclusive agreement with the Galactic Empire, many of its weapons fell into the hands of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. A number of DL-21 pistols were used by Rebel forces during the invasion of Hoth in 3 ABY, and at the Battle of Endor a year later in the hands of Lieutenant Renz. Dengar is seen with a holstered DL-21 on the Executor. Ponda Baba also carried a modified DL-21 during his partnership with Cornelius Evazan. This particular blaster lacked a safety mechanism, and included cooling vents on the flared muzzle, and a comfortable hand grip suitable for Aqualish hands.

Behind the scenesEdit

The DL-21 prop is a combination of the body of an AR-7 Explorer made by Charter Arms and a Sterling L2A3 submachine gun grip. The flared muzzle is the fin assembly from a WWII British 2" Mortar shell.
