BSA Spike LG98A2 by Pyrosity BSA Spike LG98A2 by Pyrosity
A follow up on the Spike from earlier: [link]

I still think it's a little too close to the original Bren, but at least it's more in the direction I wanted to take the design.

Couple of notes - the dark boxy area just in front of the trigger guard is a shell catch (to knock them away from the shooter), and the white box behind it is a spare magazine held by a clamp on the other side.

As good as the drawing is, I think the design is a bit unbalanced and somewhat clumsy.

Thanks, though I'm not sure what you mean by unbalanced; could you explain?

The grip seems located too far forward, and there doesn't seem to be enough weight in the back.

Having the grip more to the centre of gravity would help with balance, seeing as how that's where it's held. Sans scope, the rear might feel a little light, yes.

Well first you'll have to sign off on the X017-BR, and then there's the AB10-02, both in triplicate, and following that a trip to basic in Norfolk, assignment to an infantry squad as support gunner, and machinegunner training.

Or, in the case of Azer Biggs (one of the AFM relief force Lieutenants), slug your way to an officer's rank and file for the weapon of your choice, logistics allowing.

Heh. Decided to answer it as it would be answered in the context of Epiverse, just for fun. And to poke a little fun at all the administrative nonsense of filling out countless forms and the like.

I think gufu1992 means the carrying handle. When he says the second handle is too close to the first one.

Hmm... well that's pretty much where it is on the Bren, and I don't think it's even really used for much more than carrying the thing and moving the barrel.

The second handle is too close to the first one - unless you have VERY short arms, it will be impossible to use the scope. Why would you put a scope on a weapon with magazine on top - thats not really a lot of sense. The spare magazine idea isn't bad, but it doesn't really lets you get a firm grip on the trigger.

I'm not sure what you mean by the grips being too close together, couldn't you just bring the left arm back a little?

The sight is positioned in the same way the original Bren's iron sights are - offset to the side, so it doesn't just look into the back of the magazine.

The spare magazine isn't right next to the handle, it is spaced out a bit away from it, which isn't exactly easy to show in a side view.

1)The prolonged of the gun... will not be comfortable. Especially trying to aim it while moving, will completely throw off ones accurasy.
2)Ok, another side-view problem.
3)I see... that works - but shouldn't that will make problem with counterbalance?

Sure, balance could be a slight problem, but you wouldn't want to fire this at the shoulder much. It would usually be set up with a bipod.
I'm still not sure what you mean about aiming.

As much as it may provide covering fire... I think that it will be prone to overheating...

True, especially when using a large capacity drum magazine or belt. Though you can swap out the barrel to counter that effect to an extent.

That will be too dangerous, especially as it forces the shooter to... well, shoot less.

Other machineguns do that, I don't see why this one couldn't.
