The Jawas of Tatooine are scrap collectors, combing the deserts of their planet for droids and spare parts. Typical of these nomads, their blasters are built from a mixture of mismatched components found on their voyages. These parts are haphazardly wired together in ways that defy the manufacturer's specifications. In their dank workshops, Jawa mechanics strip a blaster rifle of all of it's internal parts except for it's power pack. Laser components are replaced with a droid-restraining bolt and an accu-accelerator, the latter of which is taken from a capital ship's ion drive.
