One of the few non-energy weapons commercially available in large quantities all over the galaxy, the Adjudicator was popular with civilians and militaries alike. Known for its heavy punch in a small package (surpassing that of the SH-9 slugthrower pistol and Field Sports Air pistol), it made up for its small ammunition capacity (only four slugs) with stopping power; combined with its ease of concealment, this made the weapon a popular sleeve gun. Capitalizing on this, the weapon was sold with an optional wrist-mounted clamp-holster spring rig; when triggered, the spring-activated rig would thrust the weapon into the user's hands, allowing for a quick and nasty surprise.
A tech-modified version of the Adjudicator was used by the Alliance Special Forces. Completely silenced and suitable for stealth missions, this variant of the stock Adjudicator was widely used by Alliance Infiltrators, and was kept on a belt, wrist, or ankle holster - sans spring rig.
