New Blasters in Star Wars Force Awakens

If you haven’t seen the new Star Wars trailer, it is worth a look. I’m a bit of a Star Wars geek. I even taught a Star Wars class to college freshman back when I was all professorial. The Force Awakens….

The important thing is this: 1:13. There are new helmets for the storm troopers, and new guns, too. They look like AR pistols. One thing you should note is that there are no Sig Braces on the back.

This isn’t the video! If you want to see the trailer, click below. This is about as good a shot as you get of the new blasters, though.

This is the best shot from the trailer, which is embedded below. I kind of think the new guns resemble the new POF pistols.

The old E-11 Blaster was built on a Sterling machine gun. The folks over at The Firearms Blog are geeking out, too, and they think they’ve found one with a stock, and the stock may be a modified ATI–which would be a huge boon to the parts maker.

    No wonder they can never seem to hit anything.
    Apparently the Imperial bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Energy weapons has yet to approve the SB15 for use even for the military.
