DESCRIPTION
Originally designed based off of the equally outdated K-10 Bryar Rifle, a popular self-defense weapon within farming colonies, the pistol is designed as though sliced from the center of the rifle itself. Unlike most blaster pistols, but alike to the rifle variant, If one pulls and holds down the trigger, the pistol will charge itself to deliver a devastating energy blast that will drain at least one fourth of the remaining battery pack.

Though the pistol can be hard to control in its charged state, prolonged semi-automatic fire does not cause rapid overheating - a design shared with it’s long-arm brethren. The design of the grip and weapon itself is angled as to allow quick access, maneuverability, and comfort of use. All excess energy is vented through the barrel’s side exhausts, preventing thermal warping from fervent overuse.

LEGALITY
Legal. This specific model is of an older make, distinctive in design, and no longer in production. A collector or artificer would notice the weapon, though they were mass-produced to be common enough that few would bother stealing or bidding on them.

INTENT
One of the many canon alternatives to the DL-44, DT-29, Westar-55, or any other hand blaster.

This one in particular is iconic as the sidearm of Kyle Katarn, protagonist of the Dark Forces series and it’s sequels. It was also featured in Battlefront 2015, as DLC.

Unique in it’s handheld ability to discharge massive amounts of energy from a single pulled trigger; a capable, stylish and adaptable pistol. Since it is canon, it has been adapted to conform to Site standards.

Why is Jedi Order listed under affiliation? The Jedi are very against violence, and would most definitely not want a blaster to be associated with them. Individual Jedi might use blasters, and even this one, but I don't think Jedi Order should be listed under affiliation.

Also, this doesn't match the weapons template. You're missing the restrictions section.

To be fair, the restriction section can be omitted if there are actually no restrictions, as the template says. (Although if there will be restrictions requested/needed for this, that is another story.)

But for Jedi Order affiliation I agree, blasters are "uncivilized" weapons after all. Seems out of place

@Wit Only reason I affiliated the sidearm with the Jedi Order was the former abundance of its utilization in Legends. If, however, that doesn’t hold up to site canon (which I assume it does not) I have edited it out.

As for restrictions, I am yet unaware of any this Pistol would need. As @Faster Than Light said, if I need to add the section I will, otherwise it takes space in the formatting pointlessly.
