. . . It's also clear that the phaser rifle design was distinctly separate from the other props that all had some design commonality (black body material with silver metal trim).
Obviously, in-universe, the phaser rifle was made by a different weapons manufacturer -- probably the same one that supplied Starfleet with the old-style hand lasers.

One problem I always had with that "Where No Man" rifle was it looks like it's from a 1950's pulp magazine cover, exactly what Roddenberry was trying to avoid.
The laser gun from Fantastic Voyage looks even pulpier.
