It may seem odd, and even dangerous, that suneaters would manufacture firearms with diglass barrels—and it is. But this is by design.

Suneaters are driven to excellence in all skills and technologies they pursue, and if there is one vocation through which they like to display that excellence more than their mastery of combustion, it is their mastery of glasswork. Suneaters pride themselves as Erj’s best glassworkers, a title earned as much through their development of complex arrays of mirror and lens to harness and redirect light as their incredible ornamental and sculptural work. So confident are the best suneater glaziers in the precision of their craft, they’ll even outfit their guns with glass barrels.

Just because they can.
