Is it Black - What do you think?

Everything crossed, please tell me it is indeed a black-black 1-c imperial blaster. I don't think I can handle another disappointment.

I know it can be hard to tell but looking for some reassurance.

The colour I think looks alright, but to be honest you really do need clear and more detailed pictures.

Is there a kind of 'W' shape on the side of the magazine clip?, kind of like a moulding line but very faint?, like this..

I don't think it has the "W"... and I'm now concerned it may have a dent and therefore be a 1-b version :(

Don’t think it’s the 1b. Its fat, not thin, and has a slightly more angled clip than the 1b, but I’m not convinced it’s the 1c either. If I had to put money on it I’d say it looks like the v1a dark grey / black variant which is what the solid black is closest to and most easily confused with. I would pm aussiejames for confirmation but try getting slightly better pics.
