This hold-out blaster pistol, sometimes known as a scout blaster but commonly referred to as a scout trooper blaster pistol, was a standard-issue weapon used by the scout troopers of the Galactic Empire. Clone scout troopers of the 41st Elite Corps and Clone shadow troopers were also known to carry these weapons during the latter stages of the Clone Wars.

This compact, one-handed blaster was fitted with a side-mounted targeting scope and phase amplifier, and featured a miniature gas cell on the rear. The weapon had a short-range barrel. Scout troopers commonly carried these weapons in a boot holster of their armor. Because scout troopers wore padded gloves, the pistol had a pressure-sensitive grip rather than a trigger. The trooper was able to hold the grip with two gloved fingers through the enlarged finger guard.

During the time of the Galactic Civil War, at least one trader was known to possess this weapon, calling it Trader's Friend.[1]
