Adapted Rifle Variants by Shimmering-Sword Adapted Rifle Variants by Shimmering-Sword
Had these first 4 variants sitting around all week, but I got hit by strep throat before I could post em or do any more.

Battle Rifle - The most used setup, though many operators will make alterations to this base. Accurate and heavy hitting.

Integrated Sniper - This rifles scope employs many imaging modes to aid the shooter, providing an always able platform to land rounds on target.

Special Operations - A smaller, more silenceable round is often used. The enclosed carrier assembly can be baffled to further reduce noise. Additional equipment is attached as needed.

Sidearm - A very specific use weapon. This cut down variant is used by anti-armor snipers looking for a backup weapon that can still bring the hurt to infantry threats.

I have to say, this might be one of the better guns I've seen being made just by hand and without using any real gun parts. This could be a rather functional and ergonomic gun, I'd buy if it ever came to reality. =P

I've never been a fan of photo bashing or using stuff like PMG.

PMG is alright. You CAN do a lot of cool stuff with Pimp My Gun, but mostly the ones who do use are just terrible drafts and concepts that would never work. Benjoo is one of the few good artists who can do it really well. Photo bashing is stupid. People who can't make art do that.
Anyway, this Rifle is superb. It's definitely unique on many levels in my eyes.

Well, properly done photobashing is a professional industry technique, I just don't use textures heavily in my work. PMG is almost exclusively used by amateurs though, and doesn't help you learn to draw/paint things yourself, in that way I find it bad because it cripples you as an artist.

Well, if you ever do go to PMG on flickr, search for Benjoo, Mr. Texas Tactical, & Woitek. They are really good. 
But you are completely right. Most of the PMG pictures are full of crap.

Hmm... I've been watching you for years and always found this to be possibly my most favorite gun design and now as of Shot Show, there's actually a multi-caliber forward ejecting bullpup rifle being made by a company called Desert Tech, called the MDR cdn.net.outdoorhub.com/wp-cont… looks quite similar I think.

Today's cartridge if these weapons were made today:
Battle rifle: 7.62X.51mm/ .308 Winchester
ISS: .50 BMG
Carbine: 5.56X.45mm/ .223 Remington
PDW: 5.56x.45mm/ 9mm/ .45 ACP

Today's cartridge if these were made in the future:
PLASMA!!!!

In response, I'd like to make some kind adjustments...

Squad DMR: 7.62x54r or .308
Sniper System: .338 Lapua
PDW: .45 ACP

Plasma isn't a viable "cartridge" seeing how if it were to implemented, you'd have to find ways to solve the slow velocity at which it would be fired at, as well as ensuring that it didn't cool as soon as it left the barrel. In addition, Plasma wouldn't be life threatening, only burning through the top layer of armor or such, just as lasers would. Today's projectiles are still in use because they kill the things that they penetrate, rather than give them minor burns or not even that.

You know, I just noticed this but the Spec Ops Carbine and the PDW variants seem to have a different magazine than the Battle Rifle and Sniper Rifle variants. Does this mean they use a different sized round as well?

:iconinfinityknifehands13:
True...though I figure that since these weapons are used in a futuristic world that improvements to technology such as powered armor, recoil reducing components, and the like would make the recoil from a 7.62x51 NATO firing weapon far more managable than it would be today. But you're right, in a modern setting a PDW firing the 7.62 NATO would have some pretty bad recoil.

Yep, the full size caliber is very large, so the smaller ones would be coming down a bit but still up there by todays standards.

Ah. So while the full sized rifles use .338 magnum rounds(I remember that you mentioned this in the comments), the smaller carbine and PDWs might use something like 7.62 NATO or the like. Good stuff.

:iconbbtomahawk12:
bbtomahawk12 Featured By Owner May 20, 2013
the smaller carbines and the PDW's will be overpowered and difficult to handle if they use that. The 7.62x51 NATO is a powerful round.

That depends on the recoil system and gas system used on them though. You can't just point out that a .308 kicks like a mule without knowing the pattern of the weapon's recoil management design.

The "idea" you could use, but the art and design itself is something I'm keeping for my own projects. Multipurpose weapons are even common today, like the AR and kalashnikov.

Fantastic overall design, and I can already see this being used, as many forces would want a very flexible type of system that could do basically anything.

Love the concept, especially the carbine, as I'm a fan of stealth ops!

It needs some more work to improve the parts commonality and parts breakdown. In general it's just a multipurpose configurable rifle like any modern example (like the SCAR or many sniper systems).
