Description[edit | edit source]

The KD-30 slugthrower pistol was a small model of highly specialized slugthrower pistol, which weighed 1.4 kilograms.[2] With a range of 100 meters,[1] it fired metal-coated slugs which were hollow and filled with borless acid. The contents of these projectiles would eat through any armor that it struck, as well as flesh and bone. Ten of these slugs could be fired before a KD-30 needed to be reloaded.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

Produced by Kelvarek Consolidated Arms, the KD-30 required a permit to use and sold for AurebeshSans-Serif credit.png350, with the ammunition costing AurebeshSans-Serif credit.png100 per ten slugs.[2] The weapons were available in the period following the year 1000 BBY,[3] during the reign of the Galactic Republic, and continued to be used into the reign of the Galactic Empire and later the New Republic.[2]
