To begin, the quality of the model is fantastic. The attention to detail is excellent, and the camouflage looks great on this design.

From a design standpoint, I'm assuming this is a combination bullpup style rifle and shotgun forward attachment. I like the decision to use a short scope, though I'm sure the design would be equally effective if it were using a red-dot sight instead, allowing the weapon to more easily focus on closer ranges.

I'm noticing that the rear ejection port is rather short, which leads me to believe that either the weapon is very large, or that the weapon is using short rounds versus long rounds. I'm assuming this weapon is meant to fire rifle rounds (long) as compared to pistol rounds (short). I'm intrigued that the receiver was placed in the front, though I'm thinking it might be easier for the soldier to manage if it was placed in the rear instead (more on this further down).

My primary concern is with the shotgun part of the weapon. Assuming the shotgun portion is either semi or full auto, I'm concerned about the proximity to the other receiver. Unless you have small fingers and no gloves, priming the weapon would be cumbersome, as your hand would collide with the upper receiver while pulling back the lower one. They're also a tad too long, as they only need to be as long as the munition that they're priming. Having each receiver located at their respective ejection ports will likely add more space efficiency to the weapons, as side rails could then be added for mounting other accessories like flashlights, bayonets, or laser pointers.

While I was originally skeptical of only having one trigger, after rethinking I imagine it would be fairly straight forward and fast to alternate between the two weapon modes with a bit of practice. It appears that you have a small switch for controlling the safety mode of the weapon in addition to the toggle for the fire modes; I'm thinking it might be better to have the safety close to the trigger for ease of access. (Trigger finger controls safety, while thumb controls weapon mode toggle) A third toggle (probably for the thumb again) for controlling full versus semi automatic modes might also be helpful.

Ergonomically, the trigger and grip appear to be very comfortable. The forward grip I'm not so sure on, primarily because it appears to be positioned too far forward. Finally, while this problem won't occur if the soldier is wearing a full helmet, the lack of a rounded cheek-rest on the stock would make it uncomfortable for anyone not wearing a helmet to try to rest his/her head on the stock.

In conclusion, I think the weapon is an awesome concept, though I personally feel that the design could be tweaked to make the weapon more efficient and user-friendly. This entire critique is strictly my opinion, and my only hope is that it has been helpful in some way. Nicely done! :)

It reminds me of the Mock up MR-C built by Crye Precision for the US Army's Objective future soldier program yet features a number of changes and alterations making it perhaps even more realistic. The compact optical sight and afg the under barrel shot gun module and shape of the magazine show a realistic view of evolving technologies like the Cased telescoped ammunition. I could easily see this presented as a objective system want for some time in the 2020's.
The Camouflaged texture is also impressive. The Attention to detail in this work is above par and the shaping is realistic.Where most such arts toss practicality for artistic sake this is both artistic, realistic and practical. Well done.

I really like this lay out.
just to point this out you could scale it down to a more conventional M4 scale. say cut back the barrels shave a little off the shot gun and forward receiver stream line the shot gun mag and separate the shot gun into a attachment. thin the hand guard and trigger guard cut a straight box magazine into the rear portion.

What do they call it? The master key? Because it opens any door, i think...
Design is great, by the way, it slightly resembles the SCAR series though, at least in my opinion.
