Standard DH-17. [1]


The BlasTech DH-17 is the standard issue military sidearm for personnel serving with the Imperial Navy and the New Republic. A sturdy and reliable design, the DH-17 has a chamber for blaster gas above the grip, sufficient for 500 shots. A 100 shot power pack is located ahead of this, above the trigger, and can be replaced in about five seconds, while drained packs can be recharged via a generator in fifteen minutes.[2]

Usually fired in semiautomatic mode, the DH-17 can be modified for fully automatic fire. However, this drains the power pack within twenty seconds, and can generate excess heat capable of melting internal components or causing an explosive overload.[2]
