STAR WARS: Solo's Original Blaster Sets World Record at Auction

It's official. Guinness World Records has confirmed that Han Solo's BlasTech DL-44 Heavy Blaster from the original Star Wars trilogy is the most expensive prop gun to be sold at auction.

Illinois-based Rock Island Auctions fetched a price of $1,057,500 for the blaster, one of three (and the only one left) wielded by actor Harrison Ford during the filming of 1977's Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

The famed blaster had been modeled after a German-made Mauser C96 and utilized parts from a World War II-era MG81 machine gun and an early 20th-century Hensoldt-Wetzlar rifle scope.

Guinness World Records confirmed the price earned the blaster the title of the most expensive prop gun sold at auction.
