|The BlasTech DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol puts the power of a blaster rifle into a weapon not more than the size of a standard pistol. Preferred by smugglers and other people of similar persuasion, it causes even the bravest of people to seek cover from its fury.
The DL-44 is designed for close-quarter combat, sacrificing range for power. Although it has a maximum range of 50 meters, the pistol is known to penetrate stormtrooper armor with ease. The increase in power causes the power pack to drain 4 times faster than that of a normal blaster, allowing only 25 shots to be fired per power pack. Due to this other constraint, the DL-44's handgrip has a vibrating "cautionary pulser" installed that informs the user when the power pack has 5 shots or less remaining. A quick release lever, along with the convenient location of the power pack immediately in front of the trigger, permits rapid power pack replacement.
In addition to BlasTech's model, Merr-Sonn has produced two popular clones of the DL-44 in the form of the "Flash" 4 (a ripoff of BlasTech's design) and the smaller "Power" 5.
This weapon, along with many other heavy blaster pistols, are illegal or heavily restricted in many systems across the galaxy.
