    This is a guess:

    Deadly Weapon (1989)

    starring Rodney Eastman, Susan Blu, Gary Frank, G. Adam Gifford (aka Adam G.), Michael Horse, Sasha Jenson, Walter Koenig, Gary Kroeger, Barney Martin, Sam Melville

    IMDb synopsis:

    An experimental gun powered by an atomic reactor is misplaced when the transport carrying it crashes into a river. The weapon soon falls into the hands of a bullied teen named Zeke, who uses it to get even with his persecutors. An Army team led by the overzealous Lt. Dalton is sent to recover the weapon before its unstable reactor overloads and causes a meltdown.

    Here are clips from the movie but none showing the weapon unfortunately:

    My only other guess is this:

    Laserblast (1978)

    starring Kim Milford, Cheryl (Rainbeaux) Smith, Ron Masak, Dennis Burkley, Eddie Deezen, Keenan Wynn, Roddy McDowall

    IMDb synopsis:

    Alien creatures kill a mutated alien creature in the California desert. Its remains, and the high-tech laser gun and power source accidentally left behind, are found by an ostracized teenager. However, the power source causes the teenager to mutate too, and he goes on a murderous rampage.

    Here are the movie trailer and Part 1 on YouTube:

    • I was looking for Deadly Weapon, too. I saw it in the early 90s on TV, but I could not recall the title either. Many thanks.
