|Physical and technical specifications|
|Usage and history|
The Mandalorian Ripper was an energy-propelled slugthrower pistol that was produced in great numbers during the Great Sith War. It was a common sidearm for Mandalorian officers during the Mandalorian Wars.
The Ripper was highly versatile and upgradeable. When properly modified and in the hands of a capable marksman, they proved devastating to opponents. They also ignored personal shielding, giving the wielder an advantage in ranged combat if both combatants were shielded.
Despite being a slugthrower, it was legally classified as a disruptor weapon, and thus banned for civilian use on most Republic worlds.
A heavier rifle verison existed during the Great War.
