Summary:Star Wars has cool guns. Whether it's the BlasTech DL-44 heavy blaster that Han Solo favors or the classic Stormtrooper sidearm, the Imperial E-11, almost every fan has their favorite. Of course, Star Wars had other cool weapons, too: everybody, at one time or another, has pretended to wave a lightsaber around while making Dopplered "WA-ow" noises. But in the movies, you don't always get a close look at what everybody's packing. That's where Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology comes in.
From Leia's wimpy "sporting" blaster to the Death Star-mounted super-laser, the Essential Guide covers it all, with meticulously labeled schematics and detail-packed descriptions. (Don't be surprised if you find yourself at Radio Shack later, looking for a "crystal lens assembly" or a "high energy flux aperture" to finish building your lightsaber.) And the book doesn't cover just weapons: when you've had enough of thermal detonators and gaffi sticks, you can check out Boba Fett's jet pack or a Marksman-H combat remote, just like the one Luke used to practice with his lightsaber on the Millenium Falcon. With weapons and technology from all the movies and many of the Star Wars novels and comics, this guide is sure to have a few of your favorites--maybe you'll even find a new one.

Good book in dealing with the SW hardware, and I can't wait for the new version.
I used this with working on th db but it lacked a great deal I had to go with books for more references. They should update the book now.
