A Bajoran phaser

Day pulls his phaser from its holster

The Bajoran phaser was the Bajoran Militia's standard issue phaser sidearm. In the mirror universe it was called a disruptor pistol. The Bajorans produced three types of these weapons, two pistol types, and one rifle. (DS9: "Resurrection", "Who Mourns for Morn?")

In 2369 Major Kira Nerys and two Bajoran security officers were armed with Bajoran phasers when they returned to the moon Jerrado and remove Mullibok, Baltrim, and Keena by force. Mullibok asked Kira if she planned to use this weapon and Kira answered "Protocol". (DS9: "Progress")

The same year Major Kira and two Bajoran officers used Bajoran phasers to take control over ops while all participants were affected by the Saltah'na energy spheres. (DS9: "Dramatis Personae")

These weapons made a distinct sound when used – pinned down in the cargo bay by Jem'Hadar fire while fighting their way toward DS9's main computer, Rom recognized some of the shots they heard as coming from Bajoran phasers, which left Kira mystified. Just as she wondered aloud why Dominion soldiers would use Bajoran phasers, the shooting stopped, and they saw that, with one exception, their users were indeed Bajoran – as the Jem'Hadar had focused on the escaped prisoners, Odo and his security forces had snuck up from behind and picked them off one by one. (DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")

Background information

Rick Sternbach contributed to the design of the Bajoran phaser, with some concept art for its components dated 8 October 1992 being auctioned off in 2021. [1]

Playmates Toys released a toy of the Bajoran phaser in 1996. The "standard" Bajoran phaser pistol appeared in numerous episodes of DS9, as did the rifle. The second, smaller type, sometimes referred to as the "Bajoran derringer" only appeared in "Who Mourns for Morn". It is recognizable as Bajoran by its design and coloration.
