Can anyone tell me if this is a legit Jawa Blaster? It passed the float and sound test, and it doesn't have any injection molding in the front. It is not translucent and a matte black finish. Looks a lot like a Glasslite to me, but a little too perfect. Thoughts?

Unless there's something very weird going on with the lighting, you appear to be showing 2 different Jawa blasters, one dark blue / black, and one light grey / possibly silver. Neither photo is sharp / clear, which makes it very difficult for any Jawa blaster experts out there to help you. If you are able to provide large, clear / sharp images of the blaster(s) you want help with, hopefully somebody may be able to.

Thanks Jeremy - it is just the lighting. I tried getting one really bright picture to see if that would help with the identification. There is no gate scar like the Unitoy M1, it doesn't have the - by the bump like a Kader M2, and the M3 doesn't have a bump like this one. It's matte black like an authentic one but not translucent. And it floats. Here are more pictures with different lighting. In the picture with 3 blasters I have an authentic on top, this in the middle, and a repro on the bottom. In the last picture you can see that it isn't at all translucent like it's friend. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm quite prepared to be corrected by someone more expert than me (@TheJabbaWookie ?), however without the gate scar and not being semi-translucent, it doesn't seem to be a Unitoy M1. Since it's missing the minus (-) scar next to the bump (which even the Glasslite black version seems to have) it doesn't look like it's a Kader M2 either. And of course since it has a bump, it's not a Kader M3. I hate to say it therefore, but I think it's probably a fake / repro, albeit a good quality one.
