In 2374, most of Entharan arms dealer Kovin's hand-held disruptors were thoron-based. According to Seven of Nine, thoron-based weapons could be unstable. Kovin however claimed he had been able to compensate for any instability by polarizing the emitter matrix. Tom Paris test fired a terawatt powered thoron particle beam disruptor rifle. It had a four micro second recharge cycle and a range of ten kilometers. Seven analyzed its discharge of 72% fragmentation and 28% vaporization to be crude, but efficient. Paris felt it was not as accurate as Starfleet-issue compression rifles, but a lot easier to handle. According to Seven, a thermal guidance sensor added to the targeting mechanism would improve the accuracy of the weapon by 24%. (VOY: "Retrospect")
