The L1, as its title suggests, is a pistol designed to fire .45 calibre railgun sabots. Although for obvious reasons it is not quite as powerful as the L42 and L78, it still possesses plenty of stopping power (particularly against lightly armoured and unarmoured targets) and continues the tradition of hard wearing, reliable Sirian weaponry.
The pistol can accept laser sights and tactical flashlights, as well as extended magazines, suppressors, and other typical accessories for sidearms. Like its bigger bretheren, it includes an anti-sabotage and anti-reverse engineering suite and IFF features. Due to its recoil reduction mechanisms, it has acquired a reputation as one of the most easily controllable firearms in service today, even when fired rapidly.
