Red Cross Dual Special by MeckanicalMind Red Cross Dual Special by MeckanicalMind
Bare with the zany mechanics here...

UPDATE: Due to popular criticism, I'm going to go ahead and say, despite what the gun says on its shell, it is a prototype that uses .223, and is the base prototype that could you can exchange the barrel/firing mechanisms be able to switch the type of ammo. Any further question of the Sci Fi /cool design excuse can be referred to Judge Dredd's weapon. It has all kinds of ammo types. I should really just rename the gun "the Controversy". I really do appreciate all the feedback though! Thanks!

Dual functioning long and short ammo weapon. Designed for one weapon to carry both ammo types for long and short range combat. Also using only 1 barrel they can both feed into. Using a magical mechanism for the forward rounds that seals the barrel up when not in use. It's sci fi, deal with it.

Based on a 3D rough you can find on my blog :[link]

All you'd have to do to make this legit is "duplex" it and give it two barrels.
blackjacktarr Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2018
Looks like a Fabrique National de Belgie P90 (as seen on Stargate SG-1) but with a standard mag replacing the bullpup one.
DianHerd Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2017
A bull pup pulse rifle makes more sense since the marines fight in close quarters.

Very nice job :)
MaruKan Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2017
I would remove the fore-grip attachment. It's useless due to how the mag-well seems to be designed.
Heart-und-Seoul Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Does the performance boost from short-range ammo over long-range in close-quarters outweigh the extra complexity?

Either way, it looks pretty...kinda 'worldly and dusty'.

this gun is just sexy.

Wow, I found a person who came out with the similar idea as I did, you gotta take a look at this:…
There are some differences, but overall concept and the bull-pup is the same. At least I did expect that there has to be other people who have similar idea(s), no offense though(As some people hate hearing that their creation is similar to another`s).

Cool stuff! :D
I`m curious about how the chamber(s) work in this firearm, it has two ejection ports but with one muzzle, are there two barrels inside so that they can switch position depending on the selection?

   I see real potential for this.  Who knows maybe someone in the weapon industry will use this design for real.  I just hope when this happens, you get the royalties!!!
Darkchop Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2015
I tend to think that combination weapons are an answer to a question that no one has really asked.  That said, something like this might be better in a caliber combination of integrally suppressed 300 Blackout on top, and something like the Bofors 6.5x25 CBJ on the bottom.

From a purely aesthetic perspective, I am still drooling on myself (mentally).  This is excellent work.  Well done!
Reborn-Taltos Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2015
This gun would be awesome in fps games!

Very cool concept design, love the detail!

So that's where the 9/11 relief fund went.

Reminds me of the KRISS Vector
Wolfsalvo Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013

It's not sci-fi; if you can figure out the proper mechanisms and have an internal computer or higher functions, you can have the gun shoot as fast as a P90, while using both clips. Yet the faster the gun fires, the more the accuracy decreases as the recoil throws off the persons aim. its basic logic, but guns aren't made like this because of the fact that it wouldn't be ideal to be in combat and need to change one or 2 different magazines of different caliber/ magazine sizes.


Either way, this is looking really nice!

GUZMAN-TANCO Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2013
great general, I also try with a pair of silencers because I see a good place ahead
someone1fy Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013
So how many rounds in those two of magazines and which kind of bullet that gun used?
Ge-nre Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013  Professional Filmographer
its like MP7A2. freaking awesome
GraphicArtMarketUSA Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Professional Artist
Can i make a working version in real life with your permission
Streaked-Silver Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
How? the bolt in the "short" round would get in the way of the "Long" round. You DO ...know it wouldn't work right? ..after 3 years?
Streaked-Silver Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
so ... the long round passes through the .. bolt and chamber of the short round? ..what? it LOOKs sound.. till you add the second mag in there and try and pass it on the same barrel
TheAsterite Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013
No, no, no, no! The short round passes through the long round's barrel, just like how 7.62 rifles can fire 5.56 rifle rounds, albeit inaccurately.
Streaked-Silver Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
but you need a bolt group and extractor AND chamber space in that area of the rifle, Like i said, it looks sound till you add in the second source, It would not work..
BETA368 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
This would actually be nice RL concept for home defense, albeit without the alternate ammo, and maybe a ton of conversions, for just about any common cartridge. A nice economic gun, with a nice economic look.
mrabudi Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
really cool gun and idea!
beefers Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I like the concept and the design regardless of whether the physics are correct or not :D
tomsymonds Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Professional Artist
I would like 2 of these! great work.
Baremoon39 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
i like it , cool looking
deRoos100 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Just say that the forward chamber uses a falling block action and the whole gun uses caseless ammunition :)
bramindrawan Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
nice work.

do you receive purchase from Indonesia?
I want make order for ten...
cityofthesouth Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
very cool
s620ex1 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
Haters gonna hate.

That's a fuckin cool design!
TerraxLorche Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
Who says it has to be a mechanical trigger? Electro-thermal induction rim-fired ammo would be acceptable in a sci-fi based weapon. Minor drawback however the weapon would need a power pack... which could be housed in the Magazine btw...
BeadedGreenLizard Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
even if its chambered in 22l/22s i'd still buy it!

I've been with the Red Cross for a while, but I've never been issued one of these lol
Anyways, great work! I really like the lighting/shading!

well done bud well done
UltimaWeapon13 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, the thought just crossed my mind:

This gun could be used in Post-apocalypse by the Red Cross, who act as Battle Medics. Hehe.
UltimaWeapon13 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sweet Maker this is amazing.
Shockwave9001 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What a GREAT design! Love the dual rounds and the very simple holographic sight!
Oh, and the red lines up front <3
NikitaTarsov Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Looks great.
And btw i donīt think that there is much magic needet to make such a idea runnig.
I really like the "click-to-decompose" detail:)

3 words and 3 words only: Like a boss! :D
CzechBiohazard Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really like the concept. Your render of the firearm is amazing. :3
EdXCal Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
There was a weapon attachment for the old M1903 that allowed it to use 9mm pistol ammo in semi auto, you removed the bolt and added this device. Maybe you could try something like that? Otherwise I like the look and idea of the weapon.
