These caseless handguns have no external moving parts, with all action being internal. In case of a misfire, or to remove a chambered round, the top slide can be pulled back and the round ejected. The eternal top slide only moves when manually feeding or ejecting a round.
The AP5 is a light automatic pistol adopted by LS Security forces. The AP5 is popular for it's light weight (2.8 lbs), high ammunition capacity and minor recoil.
The AP6 is based on the AP5 and was designed to provide greater stopping power. It has generally been supplanted by the AP7.
6mmLS munitions are available in three types; FMJ, JHP & AP. Treat all rounds as eing identical to similar 9mm Caseless rounds (2D6+1 damage) except in price (twice the price). They use a smaller bullet than the 9mm, but with almost the same amount of powder backing it.
7mmLS munitions are also available in FMJ, JHP and AP variants, and are treated for all game terms as 11mm rounds (3D6 damage) except in price (twice the price).

The AP7 is a long barreled version of the AP6 and was the standard sidearm of LS Military units and heavy security until being recently replaced in active service. It fires the same 7mmLS munitions as the AP6 above. It is also used by professional forces and is respected for its accuracy and hitting power.

PST/SMG +0 J P 1.5mm 60 2/3/24 ST 20m 1,100eb

Flechette guns fire small metal darts enclosed in a sabot that protects the dart during firing. The darts are unstabilized and count on their aerodynamic form for stabilization in an atmosphere. The round suffers from an inherent range limitation because of sabot ejection tipoff.
The FMP6 is a compact machine pistol designed for clandestine operations. Its small size (10 inches long), light weight (2.8 lbs) and firepower make it a popular undercover weapon. It's short effective range limits its use as a military weapon, but its excellent short range characteristics make it popular. The FMP8 is a product improved version of the FMP6, with lighter materials and an improved chambering system (VR reliability, 1,300eb).
1.5mm Darts are available in three varieties:
Standard Dart (SD), dealing D10+2 damage at 1/2 SP (100 eb / 60 rounds)
Soft Steel Dart (SSD), dealing 2D10 damage at 2/3 SP (120 eb / 60 rounds)
Armour Piercing (AP), dealing D10+2 damage at 1/5 SP (300 eb / 60 rounds)

The FMPX7 is another compact machine pistol, and was designed specifically to defeat power armour at close range. The FMPX7 turned out to be rather heavy, had a limited effective range, and was not as effective against ACPA as intended, but it did offer a great deal of firepower in a small package. This capability made it popular with infiltration and security teams.
2.8mm Darts are available in the same configurations as 1.5mm, but are sold in magazines of 48 instead of 60, cost twice as much and deal an additional D10 damage beyond the 1.5mm dart.

The SMG6 was designed for light military and security action against "soft targets" (human targets without heavy body armour, generally against civilians and rear-echelon personel). It is a conventional 7mmLS caseless SMG in almost all respects. The carrying handle contains the iron sights for the gun, although optical sights can be mounted on the carrying handle in addition (and never are normally).
The 7mmLS ammunition fired by the SMG6 is identical to that fired by the AP6 and AP7 automatics above, and is effectively treated as 11mm Caseless munitions at twice the price.

SMG +1 L P 1.7mm 52 2/3/20 ST 120m 800eb

The SMP7 is built on the same chassis as the SMG6, with the same ammo feed system, firing mechanism and so forth, but is actually a radical departure from standard Sub-Machinegun technology. The SMP7 fires 1.7mm Fin-Stabilized darts. The fin stabilization gives the dart a truer flight and longer effective range than flechette darts, making the weapon ideal for military and law enforcement activities. The sabot fired from a slivergun is much larger than those used in flechette guns, and is dangerous to unarmored targets within 20 feet and 60o of the weapon's line of fire. Within this area, the sabot deals D6 damage with a base hit chance of 1% per round fired that combat round.
1.7mm Slivergun Darts are available in three formats:
Standard Dart (SD) deals D10+1 damage at 1/3 SP (150eb / 52 rounds)
Soft Steel Dart (SSD) deals 2D10 damage at 1/2 SP (200eb / 52 rounds)
Armour Piercing (AP) deals D10+1 damage at 1/6 SP (450eb / 52 rounds)

The SMPGL7 combines a 1.7mm SliverGun and a 30mm Grenade Launcher. The five-round semi-automatic Grenade Launcher is the primary system, with the slivergun serving as a backup weapon. the slivergun uses standard SMP7 magazines. The grenade launcher is mounted above the slivergun and is fed from a magazine wich slined into the back of the weapon. The five grenades are help end-to-end in the magazine.
The SMPGL7 was not produced in large numbers as explosive weapons are generally unused in corporate warfare because of collateral damage to expensive facilities. The 30mm Grenades are treated as typical 40mm grenades in all respects except size (30mm) and cost (1.5 times price).
