BlasTech ES-23 "ESPO Riot Gun"

The BlasTech ES-23 "ESPO Riot Gun" is one of the standard issue weapons of the Corporate Sector Authority's vaunted ESPO forces and one of the most common and popular automatic rifles in action today.

Despite its popular nickname, it is not a true riot gun. The ES-23 shares the durability and reliability of the rest of the BlasTech line, and its control layout and maintenance drill are learned quickly by anyone that has mastered the E-11 rifle and/or the E-14 carbine. The biggest difference lies in placement of the special, oversized power pack mounted on the underside of the rifle that provides the weapon with enough energy for 300 shots. The ES-23 is fitted with a vertical foregrip to compensate for the fact that most shots are not made with the shoulder stock. This means that it can provide an incredible amount of fire in a relatively small package. Contrary to most descriptions, it is actually no more accurate than an E-11, despite the fact that it can fire in singlefire, multifire and autofire modes.
