BlasTech P-11 Blaster Rifle

The BlasTech P-11 Blaster Rifle is a true sharpshooter's weapon. It is based off of the E-11 rifle, but this only goes as far as the rough appearance and general maintenance procedures. Being 1.35 meters in length, it is nearly 50% longer than the E-11/M and much more accurate (+2 to hit on all attacks). It is fitted with a heavy, fixed stock that can be adjusted for a perfect fit to the shooter. Similar adjustability exists in the redesigned pistol grip in that it has a significant swell at the base of it to lessen hand fatigue during long periods of use. A gap of three millimeters exists between the barrel and the forearm so that the barrel's harmonics are not disrupted. In fact, there is only one place that the barrel is touched by anything, and that is where it fits into the receiver. The entire trigger group and interior workings have been precision fitted to each other, with tolerances of 0.0001 millimeters being the norm in some locations.

The P-11 primarily uses specially made "match" power packs manufactured by BlasTech (80 credits each) that not only grant enough energy for 100 shots, they give the weapon a range 33% greater than the E-11 without losing on-target energy or capacity. The P-11 is also capable of using standard power packs in emergencies, but they are not as efficient (only 50 shots each) or as powerful as the match-grades. Another interesting note regarding the match power packs is that they do not increase performance in any other weapon than the P-11.

The rifle is fitted with the same scope as the Sharpshooter V and may be used with a heavy tripod (available from BlasTech for 100 credits) that supports the full weight of the weapon.

The P-11 is in special issue with elite units of the Empire, the Sector Rangers and some local police agencies, such as CorSec. The weapon's accuracy has made it one of the choice weapons for dealing with hostage takers and other criminals behind barricades. Too delicate for standard field use, it comes with a heavy durasteel case (Hardness: 15, Wound Points: 24, Weight Filled: 25 kg) for transportation. This holds the P-11, the tripod and 6 match-grade power packs. It is heavily padded, with the entire package having a 90% survivability rating if dropped from an altitude of 100 meters onto bedrock on a standard gravity world.
