I was just skimming over the codex and noticed that with sergeants they are equipped with laspistols as default. However, what I didnt realise is that there is no option to exchange for a lasgun?
So can you equip your sergeant with a lasgun if you wanted to? Or is it better to have him with the laspistol anyways?
Nope, can't equip him with a lasgun at all. I'd prefer to have the option, but it is kind of funny being able to say, "why yes, my sergeant does get three attacks!" after being charged.
I find it a bit ridiculous that you cant swap the laspistol for a lasgun. Surely a sergeant is capable of operating a lasgun!
And in what real world army would a sergeant only be equipped with a pistol?
Yeah now that he's a sergeant he's too important to actually do anything. Not that he'd do much with a lasgun...

from a functional standpoint, not giving the sargeant the option of a lasgun means he will always look significantly different from a normal tooper so there is no confusion as to whether there is a sgt around for CC or Ld.
This is somewhat akin to the Shas'vre in the Tau only getting boosts to their WS and I. They clearly missed a memo about their role in the army.

I honestly don't mind it that much, lasguns are probably the better option in general but I've had sergeants stick around for lucky kills on elite assault units before. Plus I prefer the look of the pistol/sword for the models themselves. Oh well, our codex is good enough I don't think I'll gripe about the downgrade of one lasgun in my units.
