Durasteel and duraplastWEAPON TYPE
Medium - Stun
The BM-548 is a standardized mass-production model designed for the every day soldier, mercenary, or armed security. It features a mounted carrying handle, side-loading power pack, and top and bottom attachment rails for excellent customizability. The solid stock, sturdy design, and long barrel provide stability when firing while the foiled barrel for heat dispersal allow for continuous trigger pulls. Blackwell Munitions recommends a grip attachment sold separately if intending to use it in this way.
The frame was build with mixed use in mind, sturdy enough to be used as a club or with a mounted bayonet and continuing to fire. The rails accept any attachment that will fit in place, from scopes and sights to underbarrel grenade launchers and grappling hooks. Disassembly for cleaning or modification is easy, though Blackwell Munitions would like to remind prospective purchasers that such modification voids the manufacturer's warranty.
Though it is slightly heavier and longer than some competitors, it also features a longer range, accuracy, and reliability over more common rifles such as the E-11 while remaining cheaper than premium rifles such as the E-11D. Both the safety and bolt settings are situated in the form of ambidextrous switch controls above the grip, easily reached by the wielder's thumb. The firing action is smooth and balanced, the barrel configuration resulting in a distinctive thum-pew sound.
These blaster rifles are a relatively common sight amongst planetary militias and private buyers who can afford modern, professional grade equipment.
Legal. Ownership of blaster rifles is not restricted in most of the Galaxy, however openly carrying such a weapon in public might be on more "civilized" worlds. On less civilized worlds, it still might draw unwanted scrutiny.
