Wampa busting: Hi-Point Carbine becomes Hoth Bowcaster (VIDEO)

Wampa busting: Hi-Point Carbine becomes Hoth Bowcaster (VIDEO)


Paul Markel with Student of the Gun recently launched The Hoth Report where he highlights a gently-modded Hi-Point 1095 to the joy of Wookies with a life debt everywhere.

The 10mm pistol caliber carbine is of course based on the mythical bowcaster from the Star Wars franchise, a weapon so powerful that only 7-foot tall fur-covered bipeds from the planet Kashyyyk can handle them.

Although this is subject to debate in later films:

Markel said the gun has “advanced stabilizing limbs” while special features include an “enhanced carbonite finish.”

If you dig the Bowcaster, check out other recent Star Wars fanboy entries to include Greedo’s DT12 blaster (a Ruger Mk I), Han’s BlasTech DL-44 (Mauser Broomhandle) and Chris Costa’s own R2D2-inspired double-stack 1911, which have all popped up on the radar lately.
