I don't see why it can't be a gadget. It fits much better than a striker since you have to "wield" it with a hand. I'm not quite sure which enhancements you would need to pay extra for "ST-Based" but most do not.

As far as I know, yes. AD is the only one I would question, and I saw it posted elsewhere here that it's allowed on Natural Weapons.
