|Usage and history|
The rifle had a long barrel, was issued with a sling, and could hold five rounds. It was widely considered to be a rather crude and primitive weapon when compared to modern technology, but despite this, was more than capable of piercing Stormtrooper armor.
The rifle was created by the Dressellians before the beginning of the of the Galactic Civil War for the use of the Dressellians as well as the Bothans of the nearby planet of Bothawui. Although the Dressellians used older technology, they were able to drive the Galactic Empire from their home planet, Dressel during the Dressellians' rebellion. This type of rifle was produced by both the Dressellians and the Bothans, who aided them during their rebellion.
Dressellian commandos, such as Orrimaarko, also carried this projectile rifle in his later service with the Rebel Alliance. Later on, the Rebel Alliance decided to adopt the weapon to the Alliance Army's arsenal. It then became a specialized firearm type sniper rifle fitted with a scope.
