It does pull back and dry fire. Unfortunately, this piece has been sold but I can make a weapon for you if you would like. Please email me at Redforkempire@gmail.com if you would like to commission me for a piece.
One could be acquired through petition to the Sanctus Phainein through this medium or one of the many through the EGO website. Although, once one has such a device in their possession your genetic code will be imprinted onto it should it be used against those of the Empire or it's allies. Furthermore, the residue essence from the device will slowly alter your mind. However this process is quite harmless. Please let us know if you would like one of these magnificent pieces of hardware for your personal arsenal. The Empire thanks you for your comment.
As the Red Fork was the result of the first spark that created the Multi-verse, the spark of the flint onto a classified substance activates the five reactors which then draw Essence from the copper tube. The antenna receives Essence and stores it into the copper filter. The Director of Imperial technology thanks you for your inquiry.
