Alpha Dawn PGC-1 Laser Pistol
The so-called "standard"
Laser Pistol is a light-based energy weapon widely popular in the Frontier. It accepts standard powerclips or can be attached to a power beltpack or power backpack.
Laser pistols have an adjustable power setting ranging from 1 to 10, consuming an equal number of
SEU per shot; lower settings are less damaging than higher settings, but all settings are technically "lethal", with no available "stun" setting.

markets the PGC-1 in various models, including one which is packed with
exploring the Frontier. The PGC-1 is highly ergonomic and easily usable by
hands, though a vrusk version is available which is more comfortable for their hand anatomy.
Besides the PGC-1, other laser pistol models are available, such as the
KE-1500, as well as lighter, more concealable versions like the KE-1000.
A wide range of accessories are available for Laser Pistols, including
Shoulder Stocks, Barrel Extensions and Optic Sights, which effectively convert the Pistol into a carbine.
