Bio:

This has come to mean a generic term for a Lever-Action Rifle with a shortened barrel and stock. It can be traced back to old Earth, a period known as the “Dead or Alive” era. Some manufacturers make an official model that is sold as a pistol, but functionally the same. This allows for some leeway regarding Law Levels. In most cases, due to the size, even the cut-down rifle model is often treated as a pistol in regards to Law Level.

It has become quite popular on the less ‘civilized’ planets, those more frontier-like. It is also used by bounty hunters and smugglers because it can be strapped to the hip and drawn like a pistol.
