Quicksilver Industries: 'Hyena' Carbine by Shockwave9001 Quicksilver Industries: 'Hyena' Carbine by Shockwave9001
Here at Quicksilver Industries we think the AK is a great weapon platform. We all love that clunky fire selector, large magazines and the mule kick. But there's always room for improvement, right? The original AK isn't all that ergonomic, is it? It isn't all that accurate, is it? It isn't that advanced, is it? The Hyena is.

The Hyena is advanced in every way possible. As usual, the weapon is completely ambidextrous. An integrated laser aiming module has become our standard nowadays. So what's mostly special, you ask? The package as a whole. The Hyena comes standard with QSI's latest design: a MetalStorm ARL®, All-Round Launcher. It's extremely easy to switch between anything you want to fire with it, ranging from shotgun shells to grenades to even stun rounds. Your choice.

The second thing that makes it special are the optics. The rear sight, when flipped down, feels really similar to your standard AK sight. (Except it's illuminated. Of course.) But when flipped up it's an extremely useful red dot sight. You'll love it.

Quicksilver Ind. produces top of the notch firearms made for easy and cheap mass production, while maintaining very high quality. Our firearms will always be fully ambidextrous, two toned, operator-friendly and accessory-friendly.

I love this one! That's some M-14 upper rail usage right there. :headbang:

Now I just wonder how to reload the underbarrel...

Thanks! The under barrel attachment is a metal storm based shotgun, so all you have to do to reload is replace the barrel.

And here I am with out a good "In Soviet Russia" joke.

Either way, this is a good update on a tried, and true weapon.

Actually, remove that underbarrel and it would look quite similar to an AK-series rifle.

It has a charging handle, ejection port and fire selector on both sides.

Avtomat Kalashnikova no need ergonomic, advance or accurate, comrade Shockwave. glorious bullets of motherland shall guide themselves to target.

just kidding, impressive work as always! i love how you gave the AK that tacticool look without making it look square-y like most tacticool AKs out there. really nice design!

Haha, no sweat :) Nah, don't worry about it, it's an obscure bit from an obscure sketch from ages ago. Besides, your implementation is superb, so the work is all yours.

Thanks for the compliment - I wish I had more time to draw these days. School keeps me busy.

Do you have more of those tasty sketches? And you should find some time to draw again, mate. Don't forget to ventilate your creativity every once in a while, it's bad for your health if you don't ;-)

what caliber is the launcher and how many shells?
Reply
:iconshockwave9001:
Shockwave9001 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The launcher accepts 25mm tubes, in which you can load anything up to 20mm.
So 20mm MetalStorm grenades would work, as well as 12ga MetalStorm shotgun shells.
You can make the tube as long as you want, but the model shown here can fit up to 4 rounds.
