Believe it or not, but this started out by modifying my very first QSI weapon, the Hellcat.
At the end of the progress, al that's left of it is the CASV-EL rail.

Yours truly,
~ Shockwave

Nice gun but...

...wouldn't you have to hold the revolving part of the shotgun? I mean, if ever it's double-action, the revolving part will rotate while you're still holding it; that sounds pretty dangerous when you're holding onto it.

I was thinking you turned the chamber manually. Kinda like a single-shot M1216.

In that case, more single action, than double-action.

Make a tiny handguard under the cylinder?

Actually, the shotgun can work with a revolving cylinder. Hell, it's quicker to load than a traditional shotgun. Just drop the empty cylinder with a press of the cylinder release and pop in a new one.

Seeing your work, I'm starting to wonder why either Infinity Ward, Treyarch or Sledgehammer Games hasn't hired you for weapons design in the next Call of Duty games.

Not only is it a short-barreled bullpup DMR, but one with a built-in SIX12. For a precision weapon that's aggressive as fuck.

Pretty good call actually. In tight spaces you may not have time to bring the rifle to your shoulder and peer down the scope to aim. Plus well it's a known fact that shooting from the hip is not only bad for your health but also incredibly inaccurate. However that underbarrel shotgun makes getting surprised in your sniping roost survivable.

Oh it's the SIX12. There are some similarities, but aside from it being a semi auto bullpup revolving shotgun, it doesn't really share that many details with it.

1st. Awesome design...
2nd. Why??? If this is used as an "breach" weapon there's is no need to have it at 7.62mm. 5.56 is absolutely a brilliant weapon for close quarter, at the same time it will take down taker out to 400 meters (If you are a good shooter 600 meters). 5.56 makes it light enough to to not loose to much accuracy by having a shotgun underneath. 
3rd. If it is a support weapon, why have both shotgun and 7.62mm? 
As a support weapon the 7.62 is an formidable size. but the shotgun underneath would make the weapons system unstable and therefore loose some accuracy. 

Just my thoughts...

I don't want to be rude, absolutely not. I really appreciate your feedback, but usually I honestly don't put that much thought on practicality.
For me PMG is 80% about aesthetics and cosmetics.
The idea was to have a marksman rifle with a backup CQC shotgun for when things get nasty.

I'm sorry if I disappoint you with this. Again, I really appreciate your comments and I'm always looking forward to them. Thanks, man.

Narh, don't sweat it :-) I didn't have anything to say about the design other than it perfect. Therefore I comment on the use. 

I look at a weapon for both the look and also from a use point of view, likely because of me past in the sand dunes hehe. 

I love your designs, whether they are 100% functional or not... So keep up the work, cause I'm loving it :-)

Absolutely brilliant, though how hard would it be to make the shotgun trigger closer to the main trigger group? It would be more complex but I think the payout would be worth it.

Thanks for your comment! :)
Since anything is possible in the magical world of fictional firearms, I could've made the primary trigger the shotgun trigger as well, maybe letting the user switch between firing mode with a button or something. You're right, I didn't think of that while building :( do you think it would've been much better?
Reply
:iconbuckyalt:
buckyalt Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2015
Well actually it's not as fictional as you think, it would be fairly easy from an engineering standpoint to have a 3rd point on the fire selector that would tie the main trigger to a triggerish thing under the barrel that would lock into whatever accessory you have under there (GL, SG, etc.). Hopefully that makes sense, I'm not quite sure how to put what is in my head to text form. It would be more complicated sure but entirely possible. Of course whether or not it would be worth the complication is up for debate. Personally I like it because then you can reshape the shotgun to better act as a grip without requiring the protruding trigger group.

You're absolutely right. And what you said made sense to me, don't worry about that ;-)

I do have one counter argument for that. As of now the shotgun is interchangeable for other modules, or maybe leave it off to make room for a rail attachable bipod.

:iconbuckyalt:
buckyalt Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2015
Yeah having it be interchangeable would make the janky trigger system a bit of a bother, unless . . . . you used an electronic trigger Unimpressed At that point you may as well leave it as is since electrical systems on firearms is mostly uncharted territory :-? (Confused) .

True. And while they *may* be the future... They don't like water, are easier to break I think.
Though while thinking about it I surely can come up with a lot of cool things electronic to implement into firearms mechanics.
