|Wielded by the well-known Hero of Yavin, Han Solo, this particular BlasTech DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol has undergone many modifications and upgrades to create this unique weapon. Many of the parts were obtained through Solo's affiliation with the Rebel Alliance/New Republic. The galven circuitry has been modified extensively to increase the amount of damage the bolt can administer without draining additional power. The collimator barrel/emitter nozzle unit was replaced with a unit obtained while staying at Echo Base on Hoth that helps focus the blaster bolt more to give the pistol an extended range. In addition, Solo added a scope that boasts a motion sensor and computer-enhanced low-light sighting.
Solo keeps his DL-44 holstered in a quick-draw holster that gives him an extra edge in combat, which has helped him in defeating some of the more ruthless individuals of the galaxy like the bounty hunter Greedo and the Tiss'shar assassin Uul-Rha-Shan.
Although he has long since retired from being a smuggler, he insists on keeping his DL-44 close by. This was a wise decision, as the blaster has greatly aided him in defending the New Republic's Chief of State, who happens to be his wife, Leia Organa Solo.
