Description: The Dressellian Projectile Rifle was a slugthrower rifle used by the Dressellians in their resistance against the Galactic Empire's occupation of their homeworld, Dressel. A crude weapon typically built with primitive tools, some of the slugthrowers were made by the Dressellians, while others were smuggled to Dressel by Bothans. In 4 ABY, several Dressellians fought for the Alliance to Restore the Republic at the Battle of Endor, and the Dressellian Projectile Rifle was among the weapons used by the species in the battle.

Manufactured by members of the Dressellian or Bothan species, the Dressellian Projectile Rifle was made of the planet Dressel's native woods, along with easily smelted metals. The slugthrower rifle was medium-sized, weighed 4 kilograms, and cost 300 credits. Capable of firing 20 meters, the rifle had a clip of 12 piercing shots, and had the multifire capability. For the rifle's shells, replacement 12-round clips cost 5 credits.

The rifle included a long barrel with a scope, a cartridge loader, trigger, large stock, and a carry strap. The weapon was colored brown, with a black scope, strap, cartridge loader, and trigger. The rifle also had a black ring above the strap, as well as between the barrel and scope. The rifle was a far more crude weapon which was normally hand-built with primitive tools. Typical of projectile weapons built by native species, the Dressellian Projectile Rifle was similar to the Tusken Raider species's Tusken Cycler rifles.

During the Dressellian resistance against the Galactic Empire, their projectile rifles were among the weapons used to drive off the Imperial presence on their homeworld. With some of the rifles made by Dressellians, others were smuggled to their world by the Bothan species. The Bothans were able to conceal their involvement, as their aid to the Dressellians was limited to delivering slugthrower rifles. Overall, the Dressellian Projectile Rifle was an excellent example of slugthrower rifles produced by low-technology societies.

By 4 ABY, several Dressellians joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and participated in the Battle of Endor. Orrimaarko, himself previously a Dressellian resistance fighter, was among the Dressellians at the Battle of Endor, using their species' Projectile Rifles around that time. The battle ended with an Alliance victory over the Empire.
