The Merr-Sonn Munitions, Inc Destructive Electromagnetic Pulse ion pistol or DEMP gun as it was called, was designed as a infantry support weapon for the Imperial Army. It is the predecessor to the more known DEMP 2 which built on the same principles.

The DEMP gun had three different power settings: The first setting only jolted a droid for a short time. The second could put a droid out of commission for a while with almost the same effect as a stun bolt would have to a Human. The third setting was designed to stop heavily armored droids and would completely short not just the power cell, but fry the motivator and memory if used on a droid without heavy armor or insulation.

A larger version was also available in carbine form.
