LR21 Lee Rifle by Pyrosity LR21 Lee Rifle by Pyrosity
Rework of the Lee to fit the new Spike, as both share some of the same parts (mostly the frame/stock, sights, and receiver cover). Yes, I'm aware this partially obsoletes the latest Spike design as the magazines are so obviously holding rounds of the same length. I'll get around to fixing that.

The LR-21 Lee rifle was introduced by the BSA as a modern battle rifle, and as a standardization effort coinciding with the new Spike LMG, which shares its frame and calibre. It is chambered for 8x61mm, a derivative of the 8mm Mauser round with a longer casing.

The Lee served mostly as a battle rifle in the British Army, but was later adopted by the Coalition as a Designated Marksman Rifle. Later variations replaced the rear sight with a RIS system for mounting optics.

Top-feed for rounds? Is that slightly off-set to one side so it doesn't obstruct the railing system(s)?

It is set up just like the old Bren gun; sights are offset to the side, with the magazine still in line vertically with the receiver.

Interesting. I don't know enough about weaponry, because I've never seen a feed like that before

That thing's sexy. I love how bulky it is in back, and slender it is in front. Good weight distribution. Mmmm.

Yes. Honestly, out of every weapon I designed, this one is my favorite now that I've refined it properly. The profile alone I've always enjoyed for how it incorporates some classic features such as the gas feedback tube, etc other practical and familiar things, but manages to do so while creating a very unique, recognizable shape.

That, and the foregrip alone is worth putting the magazine up there. I love the foregrip for this thing. The position, the shape, and though it's hard to show, you can see in the Dragoon drawing the 3d shape - It's more or less shaped like a boat; thinner at the ends and bulging out near the rear 1/3rd.

It'd be my first choice to see produced in any other medium (3d model for example).
