Hmm odd, on my server i bought from market for 4k credits lower level orange techblade
Not sure where it came, but i was quite happy as it was cheap.
Doubtful, as orange indicates that you can remove all pieces. Given that no +AIM hilts exist in the game, there's no way you could remove the hilt from such a weapon, meaning that it couldn't be orange.
You're either confusing it with a vibrosword or electrostaff, or it wasn't moddable at all.
