"Oh! Mandalorian! I can get a lot for this on the black market."
―Hondo Ohnaka, on one of Sabine Wren's WESTAR-35 pistols[src]

The WESTAR-35 blaster pistol, also known as the MandalTech Jai'galaar model blaster, was a blaster pistol model manufactured by Concordian Crescent Technologies. They were commonly used by the Mandalorians of Death Watch during the Clone Wars and continued to see use by Mandalorians into the Imperial Era and beyond.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The WESTAR-35 was widely favored by humans of Mandalorian heritage, who would very often dual-wield them in combat. Besides its official designation, it was also referred to as a "MandalTech Jai'galaar model." The pistol featured a stun setting and sealed low-maintenance construction.[11] The angular design of the weapon was consistent with typical Mandalorian artistic style.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

During the Clone Wars, Death Watch used the blasters often, as well as GALAAR-15 blaster carbines. Their leader Pre Vizsla owned at least two of these pistols, and used them in his final duel against the renegade Sith Lord Maul, who had challenged him for leadership of the group.[7]

In the Age of the Empire, the Mandalorian and rebel Sabine Wren also owned a pair of WESTAR-35s that she stylized with different colors. On one occasion, the Weequay pirate captain Hondo Ohnaka remarked that such weapons were valuable to black market traders.[12] This particular pair was able to function underwater.[13]

During the New Republic Era members of the Tribe, an organization consisting of Mandalorian survivors of the Great Purge, made use of WESTAR-35 blaster pistols.[4] In 9 ABY,[14] several members of the Tribe used the blaster pistols when combatting members of the Bounty Hunters' Guild during the rescue of a child.[4]
