"Jinkins, if you hit another nerve ending, I'm gonna take that fusion cutter to your skull!"
- ―The sounds made by the hand cannon's construction, and Nym's frustration with Jinkins' craftsmanship
In 24 BBY, Bith engineer Jinkins cobbled together a personal and powerful, albeit short lived, hand cannon for his captain, Nym, who chose a hand cannon over a giant hook being affixed to his arm. Jinkins then installed in place of Nym's destroyed prosthetic arm, which had been eaten by a relix, so that Nym could fire the weapon at will. Made from an assortment spare parts and weapons found on the Sunrunner, it fired bursts of a explosive ammunition. Kole, Nym's first mate, referred to it as Nym and Jinkin's "science project." The weapon proved effective against Sol Sixxa's Mere pirates, until Sixxa severed it with his sword, causing Nym much physical pain. It was later replaced by a more conventional metal hand.
