Revised the design a bit, plus some tech specs and a bit o' prose.

I can totally see those in Fallout, not in the wastes, but in a Pre-War scenario, like the Anchorage Battle

the straight, thick, mag gives it a very rugged, badass look, kinda old-timey too specially with wooden handguard.
Effing love it!

Reminiscent of the Stoner 63 Nice.

A little strange that a blowback operated rifle would have a gas tube above the barrel.

Thanks :)

The rifle operates on a system very similarly to the one used in the Heckler and Koch G3.

Um... in the G3, the tube above the barrel only contains an extension of the bolt carrier in which the cocking lever assembly is housed. Seeing that your cocking lever is situated above the upper receiver and the tube above your barrel is not in-line... ^^;

I never got why people love the breifcase handle on rifles.

Its about practicability, I guess, since it's a Carrying handle that doubles as Ironsight/Rear Sights

Like the one here, and on the AR-15 and FAMAS? It has a certain aesthetic appeal to it, I think. I pay close attention to silhouettes and shapes, and it adds a very distinct look to a rifle's design and character.

Does have a good mix of the M16 and FAL in there. But with the shortened barrel it does reduce its effective range.

Probably would be a bit lower than 450m yeah, should have double checked that more thoroughly.

Well..it's acceptable, I mean, look at SAWs like the Minimi

No worried though. All in all it looks like quite an impressive array of rifles.

Will there be more different weapons to show in the future?

Certainly; I'm always working on revamping old designs and creating new ones.

What weapons do you usually draw? I'm a bit of a weapon nut myself so I'm always fascinated with the stats and design of firearms :P

A majority are rifles, but I do some other types as well. A long while back I used to file them under this gallery but I kept running into frustrations trying to keep everything organized on DA so I don't any longer.

I like the cocking handle placement under the handgrip sight of this M16/FNFAL look like child.

It's meant to mimic the AR-15 in many ways, but it's a different design.
