I just realized the odd part of this design. I love your designs as usual, but isn't it odd for a gun of this size to not have a pistol grip?
I also understand that revolvers have a more curved back handle, but I also know that they still have a downward angle. The reason a lot of guns have an angled grip like a rifle is thanks to the stock design from my observation. But also with my observation, it would be difficult to control the recoil with a grip like this considering how you would have to bend your wrist to get this to aim straight. I tried making the pose with my hand myself, and it takes my wrist out of a comfortable position.

This still looks immensely cool, but it doesn't look to be a very practical gun to use simply because of the grip. I have no experience with guns, this is just my knowledge.

i think you may be right about this. It was one of my first designs and i did not think about the ergonomics of it. I even came across a forum post (not on da) about this one that was so angry at me.... they really said some nasty stuff of the type you find only on the internet. Since then i learned my lesson and i always draw a hand holding the gun on layer above before i finalize the painting. I think that the angle of the grip would be less of a problem if the trigger and buttons would be placed accordingly. I have shot many types of guns but i never really had and trouble with recoil except for trying to keep on target. the only things i have shot that are over 5.56 cal where on a tripod so they had no recoil at all.

Yeah, but that's because you know how to hold the gun correctly. When guns are held incorrectly they can cause damage to the wielder. I know you already know this, just sayin'. ^^

yeah... i did get hit in the eye with my scope a few times...but thats only a minor injury. I know someone that had a barrel explode in his face.... he was fine after they took the shrapnel out. I know that gun designers are aware of this type of stuff because one of the improvements of the m4 was to make a part that deflects the shrapnel of an exploding barel away from the shooter.

Is it possible to have a design like this with a spring blade for close quarter combat when the rounds dry up? Or a flip blade?  Very Kool!

Kool.  Do you know that till today we are taught to load a bayonet for close-quater combat?  And charging in with bayonets?  Don't really know how far we can reach an enemy without being blown to bits! lol.
