Description: The DLT-20A (also called a "longblaster" or "longbarrel") was a blaster rifle manufactured by BlasTech Industries sometime before the Galactic Civil War.

Description
The BlasTech DLT-20A blaster rifle was a long-barreled rifle (sometimes referred to as a "longblaster") with a top-mounted rangefinder and electronic sight. It had automatic and semiautomatic settings and a rate of fire very close to that of the DC-15A blaster rifle and other longblasters. This was one of the few blaster models produced with a magnatomic adhesion grip, keeping the weapon firmly in the wielder's grip and making him or her more difficult to disarm.[4] With additional collimating rings and longer conduits of galven circuitry, these rifles have improved consistency in their shots.[4]

The DLT-20A required a power pack, which could hold 30 shots. The weapon cost 1,300 credits to purchase, but its sale and use was restricted to legitimate military organizations and police forces.[1]

The DLT-20A was similar in design to the BlasTech A295 blaster rifle and the E-17d sniper rifle favored by the Rebel Alliance. From the design of the DLT-20A came the A280 blaster rifle.

History
The DLT-20A was primarily used by mounted troops, especially Republic recon patrols that used local planetary wildlife as their mounts.[1] They favored this rifle since the ability to hit a foe at a great distance was highly valued in their reconnaissance missions.[3]

This weapon was later commonly used by the stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire when other standard-issue blasters proved to lack long-range accuracy. The notorious droid bounty hunter IG-88 was also known to use this weapon. Because of its high precision, the DLT-20A was often a prized weapon on the black market.[4]
