Default How would you stat a ray gun?

Let's say the players came across an artifact or two. One of those artifacts just happens to be a ray gun. Would you stat it out like a Star Wars blaster or more like a Men In Black alien pistol? In addition to burn/energy damage, it either has a "knock back"/inertial force effect or a "burn through" effect - just leaving a hole in the target. If it has the "burn through" effect, can it also cause damage to anything behind the target?

I'm thinking, basically, a low-energy PGMP in pistol form that doesn't cause a bad time for the shooter. Or maybe a handheld pulse laser.

What do you think?
I like my Traveller like the women I unfortunately usually date: Cold, Harsh, and Full of Drama.
