It's been a while since I've contributed so I created another of my sci-fi weapons. Feedback and opinions welcome!

Whilst most pirate and slaver bands are small time and simply gain what weapons and ammunition they can from corrupt governments, raids on military outposts, black market dealers and general scavenging; some groups have grown powerful and rich enough to field considerable fleets, and the arms manufacturing resources that accompany the needs of supplying the large number of troops and mercenaries they command. One creation from these groups is the Oraka assault rifle. Designed to be a contender against the gear supplied by navies patrolling the vast number of star systems these pirate bands operate in, the Oraka is hardly the most technologically advanced firearm in the galactic market, however that by no means makes it inferior. The weapon is dirt cheap to produce due to the lack of government oversight and regulations involved in the manufacturing processes (namely slave labor and appalling working conditions) yet is sturdy and reliable in combat, capable of taking obscene amounts of punishment and able to punch a hole clean through standard issue body armor with little trouble. The weapon's popularity exploded among black market dealers and criminal factions galaxy wide, with record billions sold in a matter of years, helping to field one of the largest and most well equipped slaver bands that now terrorizes human and alien colonies alike on the frontier.
