Description: The J-19 bo-rifle was a black, more recent and less artfully designed model of bo-rifle manufactured by the Lasan-Malamut Firearms Corporation. A bayonet sat along the top edge and a folding stock was situated along the back. In accordance with the Boosahn Keeraw, the Lasat warrior way, Agent Kallus of the Imperial Security Bureau was given a J-19 by a Lasan High Honor Guard he defeated during the Siege of Lasan, which he modified for close quarters fighting.
The bo-rifle was a type of weapon used exclusively by the Honor Guard of Lasan; it was considered a great insult if it was used by anyone else. It was a unique combination of the functions of an electrostaff and a blaster rifle. It consists of a staff that could be collapsed to a length roughly equivalent to a standard blaster rifle. When extended, the weapon's tips are electrified up to 11,000 volts and tended to be either purple or yellow in color and are the primary contact points of the weapon during combat. The weapon is then used in melee combat as a quarterstaff. When retracted, the weapon's blaster function is used and functions as a blaster rifle.
Following the devastation of Lasan, bo-rifles were rarely seen in the galaxy, although some would later fall into the hands of both the Alliance to Restore the Republic as well as the Galactic Empire.
