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... 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.
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.
Hahaha was... Here we have to do national service and spend 2 years in the Army. My bro and Bro in law were snipers. I was a military policeman until they changed my vocation to be a company medic! My cousin was in the British Army.
thats really cool. I did three years in the israeli army (now I live in canada). I was in infantry demolition. I was a also a sharp shooter for the first two years. I tried to get into the sniper school but I failed the math test... we had Ak47 bayonets but we used them for digging out mines and never put them on our guns. did you like the army?
I had my fun times with the lads. Miserable in the rain and jungle. But overall, nothing to complain. My Cuz graduated from Sandhurst. Some of the older dudes in Singapore were trained by the Isrealis, the rest of us by the locals who were trained by them, now most of them are too old to remain in the Army. They still do have exchanges... met a few of the Gurkhas, Thai COmmandoes. Nice chaps.
Why were you in the Isreali Army? National service? Or did you want to try something dangerous?
wow thats really cool. I know that israel does a lot of business with singapore because a bunch of my friends grew up there. I have heard many great things about singapore. Like how clean it is. I did not know that israelis went to train there thats pretty cool. im guessing a lot of our training was similar. i was drafted to the national service because my family moved to israel when i was young so when I was 18 I was drafted. I could have got out of it easy and they wanted me to be an artist for the army but I told them I want to be a combat soldier... I guess because I was a teenager and wanted to do something exiting.
even though israel is a desert and usually very hot my worst times in the army where also because of cold and rain...
I doubt that guns fit in with apples "user experience ecosystem".... but maybe they secretly own a shell corporation that controls the majority of shares in a military tech company. They lounder the revenues through fake itunes purchases of music and film which they produce through their fake production company.
it isnt apple per se. i just like to use real companies in my plots and scenarios sometimes. i envision an igizmo that is gets plugged into everything, that would probably mean rifles and pets and who knows. kinda dystopic
yeah i guess so. it seams that technology is going that way. in the army we spent a long time learning to navigate by stars and by memorizing maps even though we had gps. we did that because the army does not trust that the satellites will be reliable in wartime.
this is very impressive in the line of PDWs. you should try to actually market this design to companies willing to invest in this. the only flaw with the design is the handle grip. it bends back just a little too far. this may cause an uncomfortable hold for the operator. i may be wrong because i'm not holding one, but just think about doing "finger guns" with your hand, and notice the shape your hand makes. other than that, i love the bolt system in place and the built in silencer st the barrel itself rather than replacing a compensater or muzzle flash. sorry for all the words lol just want to see this actually become a fire arm one day
i doubt any company would want this but if so i would be very happy...about the handle you may be right. some one i knew had an AR with a folding handle www.google.ca/search?q=AR+with... like that...but i never used it....so i dont know if its any good....
oh sorry. I know you did not say that it would not work... the idea is that the bolt is on a hinge and that it rocks back and forth. which means that it has less distance to travel. also some of the blowback is directed downwords and can counter the upwards motion of the gun. I think this would have higher rate of fire and more accuracy.
