Next, take a standard rifle
Then, cut off the scope
After that, cut off the stock
Now you have a nice smuggler blaster!
Cut off the barrel, and you have some DC-17 pistols! (Keep the barrels for the next one!)
I guess this isn't a blaster, but it is cool. Use the barrel of the rifle to connect two lightsabers. Sand the end down if you have to.
Now you have a cool double-ended lightsaber!
