CA-87 blasters were shock blasters created by Jawas and retrofitted to create a short-ranged weapon, and were mainly used to disable droids. After they were modified to shoot blaster cartridges, however, these blasters, despite their inaccuracy at range, could be deadly in close quarter combat. A single shot could easily slice through most body armor. The weapons were in use during the Galactic Civil War on both sides.
The CA-87 shock blaster first appears in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, but also appears in the 2015 canon video game Star Wars: Battlefront.
The CA-87 Shock Blaster is a Lee-Enfield No.1 MkIII with its stock and barrel sawed off, and a rifle grenade launcher cup attached to the shortened barrel. The bolt-action mechanism is still present (even in-game). The weapon was used in the trenches of the first world war.
The CA-87 Shock Blaster was never used by the Rebels or the Imperials in the original trilogy, only the Jawas used the gun it was modified from. In the original trilogy, the Shock Blaster (known then as as an Ion blaster) was non-lethal and was used by the Jawas to disable droids (much like an EMP gun, in a sense).

This is so heartbreaking
Darth Vader: It was foretold that you would be here. I our long awaited meeting has come at last.
Ashoka Tano: I'm glad I gave you something to look forward to.
Darth Vader: We need not be adversaries. The Emperor will show you mercy, if you tell me where the remaining Jedi can be found.
Ashoka Tano: There are no more Jedi. You and your Inquisitors have seen to that.
Darth Vader: Perhaps this child will divulge what you will not.
Ashoka Tano: I thought I know who you were under that mask. But it's impossible. My master could never be so vile.
Darth Vader: Anakin Skywalker was weak. I destroyed him.
Ashoka Tano: Then I will avenge his death.
Darth Vader: Revenge is not the Jedi way.
Ashoka Tano: I am no Jedi.
Darth Vader: Ahsoka.
Darth Vader: aniken.
Ahsoka Tano: i wont leave you, not this time
Darth Vader: then you will die
Ezra Bridger: AHSOKA NO!
