lol thats awesome. i didnt know that prop was made from a real gun either, i just thought they through something together.
This article talks about it:
How the Mauser C96 inspired the 'Star Wars' DL-44 Blastech Blaster pistol - Guns.com
There were many made, but the ones used in the close ups were real. Also, there is a 2nd hand market for the actual frames by fans who recreate the prop.
thats really cool. i wonder if the prop was functional, likely very loud with that bull horn on the muzzle though.
I will send droids to Salem to turn lawmakers into Banta fodder.

Nope, and in The Empire Strikes Back when they are having the shootout on Bespin, you can see empty shells from the blanks ejecting. At least, those are the details I recall.
Those pesky directors not wanting actors to fire live rounds at other actors!
The bull horn on the muzzle was actually a cut down fire extinguisher nozzle they added to that Mauser. (Sad I cant replace that information in my brain with something more important.) Oh and the stormtrooper blaster was a British Sterling MK4......thats all I have
The Stormtrooper long gun was a German MG 34

Sorry. Neither the DL-44 nor the Broomhandle Mauser has a detachable magazine. Therefore, neither of them would be classified as an assault weapon.
HB3200 states: "'Detachable magazine' means an ammunition feeding device that can be loaded or unloaded while detached from a firearm and readily inserted into a firearm."
So the stripper clip in this case meets the definition of "detachable magazine" and therefore the ban applies. This also applies to M1 Garand en bloc clips and other similar devices that are not actually boxed magazines.
these are not the assault weapons you are looking for.
