This, most mandalorian NPC`s have rifles, there is also a mandalorian npc on Taris that is shooting a dummy (near Commander Fett`s tent) god am i jealous
I mean seriously now all they have to do is give the BH(PT) rifles with the animations of the troopers version of unload and rapid shots..THAT S IT! nothing more because everything else the Suit does its job unlike the Trooper where there guns do all their tricks so only 2 animation changes

It`s your money-but if I have spent as much time killing Jedi instead of your own kind...you might be winning this war

Same. PT's should get to use Rifles.
Look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.

I agree, blaster rifle would be a good alternative to dual blaster pistols.

This.

And if you look at Mandalorian NPCs on Dromund Kaas, the Mandalorian raiders flashpoint and the Esseles, you can see BH skills (Flamethrowers, rockets, etc) on nearly all of them, even those who wield blaster cannons. And nobody would look at the armour and skills and mistake them for a trooper in warzones. The animations are there and the weapons are there. It's not like it would require completely new animations or a total rework of the class mechanics.

I think this would be a good idea however i think a pistol makes alot of sense because your siting at a table and someone walks up to you a sticks a gun in your face (greedo vs han in a new hope) well it would be hard to bring a rifle to your shoulder with out geting shot first so like han we have a pistol and shoot the thug first but hell i still think a rifle/carbine is a good idea or just up-grade a blaster like some one said above and put a stock on it and a longer barrel there are some nice blasters at the pvp fleet vender that would look good as rifle/carbine (they look like a small G3) and after all bobafett used all kinds of weapons including a lightsaber and jango had a sniper rifle
