Gene Roddenberry didn't like the Phaser Rifle, which is why it never appeared again.

Bjo Trimble said, "The gun was just a little too lethal-looking for Gene's taste and he just didn't like it."
I thought it looked 'Campy', like something you'd see in those '50 Sci-Fi Movies., it just didn't look right, nor did the big one in The Cage/ "The Menagerie, it just looked wrong. (but mt 2 don't matter)
