"The micro-grenade launcher is a devastating weapon, but make sure that you replace the magnetic rings that propel the explosive. During a firefight on Maro Della, the rings—which had degraded after repeated use—failed and jammed a grenade in the barrel. I only had a couple of seconds to toss the gun before the grenade detonated."
―Hyannis, Gundark's Gear Datalog[src]

The Model MGL-1 was a type of micro-grenade launcher designed by Locris Syndicates. It was designed to fire Micro-grenades quickly and with minimal training for the user. It could be mounted on another rifle and be used as a separate weapon.

The MGL-1 acted as a sort of gauss gun, using magnetic rings to propel each grenade at high velocity with minimal scattering. A computerized firing system allowed for increase accuracy thanks to its target recognition system, which combined with its low recoil and soundless operation made it a favorite of bounty hunters. However the magnetic rings would eventually require replacement, otherwise causing the launcher to jam and leaving an armed grenade stuck in the barrel.[3]
