I like this weapon, although I'd believe a more rounded magazine would be more mobile than a straight one.
Btw, any chance on designing a handheld Railgun?
Would a handheld linear motor precision autocannon be okay?
Sorry, I meant more maneuverable and/or compact. A straight magazine that long would get in the way if the shooter were to go prone, a rounded one might be more flexible in that situation though. Either that or reduce the length of the magazine...
I guess that works.
Meh, yes, the concept is ridiculous. :/
I will start modeling if I am inspired!
I may help out with the inspiring!
Think of a weapon with a rifle-like design, outfitted with electro-magnetic coils powerful enough to propel a small, solid projectile at extremely high speeds, strong enough to pierce a thin steel plate, have little to no recoil upon firing and can charge up relatively quickly (about three to five seconds). Ammo count in a single magazine wouldn't be very high, so it could be more suited for sniper missions.
And, I love the weapon!
Hättest du (ich darf doch du sagen, oder?) was dagegen, wenn ich was ähnliches wie deine Waffe in PMG baue? PMG ist die Applikation mit der ich meine Waffen bastel. Würde dir natürlich Credit für dein Design geben und zu diesem Bild verlinken!
without a problem have 50-60 rounds. That would be more futuristic. But still, a very cool design. You have great potential.
I thought about it as well, but I wanted a design which makes use of loads of ammunition leftovers from a war long, long ago. Maybe it would be comparable to a modern SMG using WW1 ammo because there are still thousands of magazines laying around in forests and ruins, which would have a rather low-tech look then.
