The Wookiee pistol, also known as the Kashyyyk Pistol, was a blaster pistol manufactured and used by the Wookiees of Kashyyyk. It had a lot of design similarities with the Wookiee projectile rifle, including its bronzium frame. It was characterized by its short range.
In 19 BBY, towards the end of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Wookiee pistol was used by the Wookiee Army's Wookiee warriors during the battle on their homeworld.
