Due to its enlarged size and box emitter in "Once Upon a Time", it is very probable that the Phaser bore has an enhanced power pack and easier to aim than a phaser pistol. Hypothetically, this could be used as a support weapon, very similar in role to a machine gun.

Much the same can be said about a pneumatic nail gun, so I'm not really sure I see a need for such militaristic speculation for something that was, on two occasions, given the role of a tool. --Alan del Beccio 01:35, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
