Hyperfirm E-11 Blaster Replica

I mentioned it in another post, but here are some pictures of the Hyperfirm E-11 Rubber Blaster I purchased back in 2005.  This was one of my first major prop purchases, and it was great to start off on the right foot.  I purchased the replica directly from the person who makes them through ebay, and the transaction was great.  The gun itself has held up incredibly well over the past three years.  

The blaster itself is, like the name implies, firm.  Only the
 thinnest sections of the casting bend or give.  The rest of the gun 
feels firm and rigid.  For costuming, the hyperfirm replicas can't be beat:  they are lightweight, wont ding up your armor, and are durable.  None of these characteristics are found in resin replicas.
I can't say enough good things about any of my hyperfirm guns, and the only downside is price.  They can be a bit expensive, but are well worth it in the long run.  I've never heard of anyone being disappointed in their replica.
