Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Scum and Villainy
Upgrade Type: Weapon Upgrade
Upgrade Point Cost: 0 or 1 (See below)
Any Rifle or Pistol (As well as Rifle- or Pistol-like Exotic Weapons (Ranged)) can have a Retractable Stock added. This Upgrade requires 1 Upgrade Slot for a Pistol, but 0 Upgrade Slots for a Rifle. (A Rifle already has a stock, which can be replaced with the Retractable Stock.) Extending or folding a Retractable Stock is a Move Action.
When the Retractable Stock is folded, the following rules apply:
- Treat the Weapon as a Pistol for purposes of proficiency and Range.
- You cannot Brace the Weapon while using it in Autofire mode, even if it is an Autofire-only Weapon.
When the Retractable Stock is extended, the following rules apply:
- Treat the Weapon as a Rifle for purposes of proficiency and Range.
- You take a -5 penalty on attack rolls with the Weapon if you use it in one hand (Regardless of its size relative to you).
Certain Weapons come with a Retractable Stock as a standard feature, as detailed in their descriptions. No Upgrade Slots are spent in this case.
