Where did you get the art work? 

They seem balanced and usable as low budget alternatives. Only if they represent older tech should they be easier to repaired ?

Stuff I had in my files from God knows where.  I have so many image files that I couldn't keep them straight if I tried.  If you know who did them I'd love to know so I can credit them.

As far as ease of repair, I liken the situation to that of cars.  Used to be anyone could work on their car, but not anymore because they've gotten too complex.  My idea is that this is an older, simpler tech, so it should be easier to repair.

My real cringe-issue is the cost.  They are only 50 cr cheaper than the regular versions.  I'd like to make that a bit more, but then I make them cheaper than some of the other weapons and that squeezes them out.

Did you check out the entry level weapons presented in SFman #1?

If I did I don't remember it.  I'll go take a look as soon as I wrap up the task I've got going.  Thanks for the tip.

*Edit to add* - I didn't see it in the first 5 issues.  I'll go ahead and do a generic credit for the moment and see if I can track it down futher tomorrow (later today, actually).

SFman #1 has 4 entry level starting weapons for beginning characters, semi auto pistol, a light stunner, a blast pistol and a cheap gyro jet weapon IIRC. 

I would like to see that your weapons are in balance with those and see the packaged for the zine. I write the Minzii Marketplace articles and I would not be offended if someone else wrote one for a new equipment submission. Anything that would not sell on the open market (like the archaic laser weapons) has a value and one must haggle for it. Though even set prices in the Minzii Market are open to negotiation.

Oh, I thought you were referring to the art.  My bad.  Yeah, I did see that article.

I figured it out, but Sings beat me to it and fixed the credits.  Thank you for the information though.  I'll know who to credit next time. :D
