Cool!

"(Warner Bros. Pictures, 1982) This special one-of-a-kind solid brass blaster was created by the prop department for use by "Safariland" in manufacturing of the leather police gun holsters used by Harrison Ford as "Rick Deckard" and other actors during filming. This unique 9 pound 6.2 ounce solid brass gun was made from the original mold of the hero blaster and features various details including the serial number on the barrel. The heavy solid brass was required to form the leather for a perfect fit for the filming blasters in the holsters. A letter from the film's assistant propmaster accompanies this incredible artifact from the legendary film."

It certainly has the air of a piece of sculptural art rather than prop now. I think Art sold it to screenused, that is why the new higher price. Still wonder why he is so shy to put his name on it, since he is the provenance for it?
