Designed exclusively for nonlethal crowd control, stun-pistols only fired stun bolts, and emitted a glowing blue arc that could immobilize an organic target, but caused no damage to inanimate objects.
Since they were designed for stunning only, they had a longer range than most blaster's stun settings, with a typical stun pistol getting fifty shots out of a single power pack. Additionally, the bolts were heavy enough that they could pierce medium armors like stormtrooper armor.
