More common in remote fringe regions than in the progressive core, the unique properties of the 6-2Aug2 Hunting Rifle make it a timeless weapon. Once a product of the Czerka Arms corporation, the rifle's unusual length lends it a reliable degree of accuracy which has made it the training rifle of choice for gunners trying to develop their slugthrower skills. The simplicity of the rifle's design and the ruggedness of its construction have long been praised by those seeking dependable armament with minimal maintenance.
Chemical-propelled ammunition seems to be the rifle's only major drawback, being less common than refined tibanna, and easily countered by plate armour. But in the most isolated regions of the galaxy where blaster gas is unavailable or restricted, the 6-2Aug2 is among the most prized of weapons. Professional hitmen have even been known to load hollow slugs filled with poison and fire them from rifles that have been modified with sound suppressors. Not as sophisticated and delicate as a modern energy rifle, it is likely to remain in circulation for centuries.
