The DH17 is the trusty weapon of choice of the Rebel Fleet trooper however it is also recognised by the 501st as an optional rifle for many of their officers, pilots and Navy Troopers

I noticed this week that the Hasbro DH17 Nerf style rifle is currently on sale for approx $20 here in Adelaide. Although in its raw form it looks like a toy there are many of us who have purchased these rifles and modified them following the simple pictorial posted by TK560 below.
http://www.tk560.com/DH17mod/DH17mod.html

Here is a photo of my own attempt



This has been modifed but can still shoot the Nerf Elite darts and the laser site still operates. It is also light wieght and does not pull down on my belt when holsteed.

Cheers

the DH 17 is one of Hasbro's most accurate blasters. It's only a little shorter in the barrel that is the main difference. The rest is pretty accurate actually.
