What you are looking at right now is the very first weapon of Quicksilver Industries first branch, simply called "Space". It doesn't have to do with space itself, but all weapons that are in any way advanced, futuristic, space-y and overall very clean looking fall under this catagory. I hope you're as excited as I am, because this branch gives me room for a lot of creativity, freedom of design and out-of-the-box thinking. I have a strong feeling this won't be the last weapon you'll see in the "Space" branch of QSI.

The Polecat Advanced Assault Rifle fires SABOT rounds, specially designed to punch through ballistic vests, (light) armor, protective suits and (light) cover. Even though the weapon is three round burst only, the mighty 1000 rounds per minute make up for that. The operator will only feel the recoil once every burst because of the extremely high rate of fire per burst.

Entirely new is the muzzle device. It's both a suppressor and flash hider, combined into one device. Slide the cover forward and the expansion chambers will be sealed, thus dampening the sound of the fired rounds. In the rear mode, the expension chambers will be open and hot gasses can easily escape. This means you can switch between a suppressor and a flash hider on the fly. Think twice before touching the device after sustained fire.

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.

A suppressor AND a flash hider? Badass marks right there...

Yes, but the gas block can be changed to sub.

I do think it's one of my least favourite creations though.

Oh? Then what do you think is the best designed weapon you made?

Greyhound, Sidewinder and Suricate I'd say.

I hate to cuss next to such a beautiful weapon but this is fucking gorgeous. You've outdone yourself with the idea of a space class of weapons.

Thanks a lot, my friend! My next space weapon is on its way, but due to high pressure at work it's taking way more time than usual.

Glad you like it, mate. Do you have any suggestions for the name?

Well the first time I saw this gun it reminded me of a shark because of the gray and white, the lines on the suppressor looking like gills, and just the whole outline of the gun somewhat resembles a shark to me. So maybe Mako AAR, since they are the fastest shark, which expresses the mighty fire rate of the gun. This is completely my opinion, this is your design and your right to name it whatever you want. And I will respect that. (:

I must admit it, that was probably a better name for it. I don't feel like I should change it anymore, but that would've been a lot better. If you're always this good with names, you should add me on Facebook, perhaps you could help me out with names more often :)

Thanks, but sorry I don't use facebook. Your naming for the guns are fine. I like how you name them after animals. Next time just think of the gun's characteristics and what animal is similar to it. Can't wait for the next gun! (:
