The SiZi M38 SDR is a heavy plasma revolver produced by Sitanin Zbrojovka Unlimited starting in YE 38. It is intended to provide its user with powerful anti-power armor firepower, and, in some configurations, can only be used while wearing power armor.
The revolver is available to all civilian markets serviced by SiZi and is sold on license in Yamatai as the “Special Duty Revolver, Type 38.” It is available for limited use to members of the Star Army of Yamatai and Yamatai National Police.
Designed by famed gunsmith Fiolina Jilad, the SiZi Model 38 Special Duty Revolver is the spiritual successor to her M30 Condensed Plasma Revolver. The older gun was oddly received and misunderstood, but was sorely missed by its specialist users throughout the galaxy. So, after years in the drafting room, Jilad emerged with the M38 SDR.
A truly modern take on SiZi's old cartridge based plasma encasement system, the M38 improves upon its predecessor in a few significant ways. Most obviously, the weapon's aesthetics have been updated and its build utilizes easy-to-manufacture components. It is both larger and lighter than the Model 30, making it more wieldy during unarmored use while giving the weapon a better balance in the hand. Its cool gunmetal blue lines and transparent synth-amber grip provide comfort and ergonomics impressive for a weapon of its size.
Backed by a full range of new condensed plasma ammunition cartridges, the M38 boasts a flexible mission profile, but is designed primarily to provide lone actors with enough firepower to damage light power armor and military vehicles. Further, the M38 was designed with feedback from longtime M30 users and makes a good field operative or power armor officer's sidearm.
The new “light” plasma cartridge allows the shooter to tame their M38 in situations that do not call for anti-armor firepower. An additional new “Special Purpose Ammunition” gives front line specialists a fully customizable delivery package that can be used to place listening equipment, deploy aerosol or incendiary agents, stun an enemy, or in conjunction with any number of miniaturized devices. Both new cartridges substantially alleviate the M38's hard recoil.
Every new M38 comes with an extra cylinder, a cleaning kit, a set of twelve micro weights, and an optional high visibility night sight. The micro weights fit into four fitted compartments and allow the user to personalize the gun's weight and balance profile from the standard 2 pounds through 4.5 pounds. In addition to the standard transparent amber, the pistol grip is also available in transparent Hinomaru red, transparent Nataria green, transparent blue, matte black, polished Tami Burlwood, ice white, transparent smoke, transparent neon green, pink or blue, and RIKUPAT.
