The SFOR Republic carbine was used by the Galactic Republic in the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War. It was a destructive carbine firing a rippling shockwave capable of tearing matter apart. During the Galactic Civil War, a number of these destructive, and by then outlawed carbines found their way into the hands of several spacers, treasure hunters and explorers on Mustafar. A group of pirates, settled on Mustafar, who called themselves the Coynite, modified a large number of SFOR Republic carbines, to cause an extreme temperature drop on the spot it hit, freezing the target. It was rumored that the Coynite got the SFOR Republic carbines from a crashed Old Republic cruiser that had just emerged from underground.
