Material: Durasteel frame
The X-17 was modeled after the Verpine Shatter sniper rifles. Using a set of coils around the barrel and with electromagnetism, sending a bullet at very high speeds and made almost no sounds. Made for simple Recruits to train on sniping, it is very easy to use. It also makes it very hard for a force user to block with a saber, or powers as it will make no sound, and is exponentially faster than other slugthrowers. Because of this it can pierce through light armors, and some medium armors.
However, to load a shell into the chamber, the bolt has to be pulled back, and released to push a new round into the chamber. Taking time out of making multiple shots in a set time. To reload the rifle the bolt has to be back for the mag to be released. Also taking more time. It also trains the snipers to have perfect shots and to never miss so they don’t have to waste time racking the bolt, or reloading.
