Tested tells the story of Carson Case and Pat Matera's two-year journey to build the most accurate model of Han Solo's BlasTech DL-44 blaster from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The gun itself is steeped in lore — The Han Solo Adventures reveal that Solo illegally modified the blaster for a faster draw.
