Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

A lightsaber pistol was a type of lightsaber hilt designed by Force-sensitives seeking to conceal their Jedi hertiage during the Galactic Civil War.

DescriptionEdit

While the Jedi Order generally had no use for blasters, Force-users during the reign of the Galactic Empire had need to conceal their relationship with the Force and could not rely on using their lightsabers openly. Through customization, a second emitter could be added to the hilt of the that would release the weapon's energy as a projectile similar to a blaster bolt. Because the energy released was not encased within the focusing field that shaped the blade of a lightsaber, the bolts fired from the pistol hilt weakened rapidly as its coherence declined. These short-range stun bolts still caused some shock, but were not as effective as a blaster or lightsaber blade.[1]
