DESCRIPTION
The ELG-8C blaster pistol is technically considered a hold-out blaster and an improvement on the ELG-3A blaster pistol. This sleek weapon looks identical to its forebrears and bears some resemblance to the Q2 blaster pistol which MerrSonn Munitions also had a hand in designing. The weapon essentially appears the same accept for being 6 inches longer. The effective range of the ELG-8A is the same as the Q2 however users report that the ELG-8C is easier to control and more accurate. Regardless, the recoil is similar to that of most other heavy blasters.

The ELG-3C features a more forgiving construction and ammunition capacity than the Q2 at the cost of stopping power. Furthermore, the sleek design prevents the integration of most attachments or modifications. However the saving grace and perhaps most appreciated feature is SoroSuub's design of the hold-out blaster allows it to be fired rapidly and accurately while have the same speed and velocity of blasters with magnetic accelerators. This has made the ELG-8C more preferable to some than top of the line heavy blasters.

The shot capacity of this blaster pistol is still fairly limited, making it used mostly by body guards, guns for hire, and collectors. It is on the pricier side of personal defense blasters so they are used by civilians. However the licensing required to use the weapon keeps them in the hands of mostly stationary defense forces associated with government. A startling percent have been reported as moved on the black markets but SoroSuub and MereSonn have a history of not commenting on these reports aside from playing the victim. Numerous other blasters on the market as of late have made the production of the ELG-3A all but halted.

LEGALITY
Legal. Ownership of blaster pistols is not restricted in most of the Galaxy, however openly carrying such a weapon in public might draw some scrutiny. The more lawful worlds require licensing for both the open carrying and especially the concealed use of the ELG-8C.

INTENT
To create something from canon that is also a high quality but concealable blaster pistol that has some legal debate behind. This blaster is a medium damage blaster that can essentially still fire as quickly as a normal blaster but have the added affect of the bolts 'flying faster' and 'hitting harder' without actually increasing the damage. Maybe this will also provide a niche place for some gunslingers or even social characters.

RESTRICTIONS
Due to the nature of the weapon's design, the ELG-8C cannot be be modified in anyway.

I dunno lol I just remember when Bex wrote it up and it was approved so I thought I’d let you know. I would imagine it could though, considering the droids in question were B1s and they weren’t exactly hulked out with armor plating

No worries. I appreciate it. Just going to do what's called a pro-gamer move here and make an edit.
