a great looking gun. only one issue is the mag looks open. if it is then why? magazines are closed for good reason,to keep dirt out of the system. and the bolt mechanism doesn't make sense the gun looks semi auto so why the bolt handle

Looks kind of like a benchrest type rifle to me.

benchrest?

Benchrest rifles are extremely fine tuned and accurate rifles that generally have stocks with flat bottoms all through or at the forearm and towards the toe of the butt to allow for it to "rest" on a "bench" to reduce wobble. This prevents the whole, balancing it in the cup of your shoulder deal. Pricey little things. The Anschutz I was shooting for a number of years had more than $10,000 put into it and that wasn't even counting the rest that was machined from a solid piece of aluminum. But man I could spot a fly on my target and hit it at more than 100 yards. Great sport. Have to watch the wind in the grass/trees or flags to know when to shoot in between breezes to control the bullet. Ok...I am done going down memory lane.

also for all we know in the future where this exists there could be homing ammo and all you'd have to do is mark a target

oh those goofy things that would never see any type of actual combat. yea absolute pinpoint accuracy is cool but i would rather keep that mobility

Aim small miss small, buddy. You don't have to be right on top of your enemy to get the job done. Check out Anschutz's website. But better yet, check out TrackingPoint's website. Ammo wont be homing, as you wont even need it to with something that is precision guided.

The magazine could merely be windowed to allow an easy look as to how many shots you have left, and the "bolt handle" seems more so to be a charging handle, as you're right, it does seem to be an automatic rifle.

well i said semi-auto. this would make for a very inefficient full auto rifle. and you know now that i look at it again i realize it was meant to be bolt action. though with that said the ejection port looks a little small for the casings

I meant automatic in that it's a self-loading rifle, not necessarily a fully automatic firearm.
