Chambered in the famous .408 Cheyenne Tactical, this hard-hitting bullpup sniper rifle will pack quite the punch. The version shown has an 18" urban combat barrel attached. The bolt handle has been placed forward on the rifle because of ergonomic reasons. Left side receiver conversions are available, as well as railed handguards.

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.

Credit for the muzzle brake goes to Kormet.
I'd also like to thank you for being a huge inspiration for me, buddy. The back came out wonderfully, thanks to you.

I'd like to dedicate this weapon to my lovely fiancé. The main two reasons for that are the following. I'm very proud of her because of the way she's been dealing with how things are in real life, with me being away most of the time because of the Air Force. And second, despite of her boyfriend having quite a weird hobby, she's always interested in it and willing to look at my work, point things out, ask questions about my designs, and even give suggestions. So babe, this one is for you. I hope you like it :)

Yours truly,
~ Shockwave

I hope it doesn’t look too much like it tho. I did take inspiration from it, but more so on the pistol grip / handguard area of it.

Hey Shockwave! Great work as always. Have to ask though, what would the recoil on this thing be? I don't pretend to be a firearms expert by any means but it seems this rifle fires some pretty heavy ordinance for its compactness.

Thanks! It has the same recoil as a semi automatic one, but more felt recoil because of the lack of a spring.
The recoil would be rather fierce because of the larger round, but that would be no different from other rifles in this caliber.

Is it just me or does this gun remind me if the Lynx sniper rifle?

It was partially inspired by that, so it isn't wrong of you to think so :)

do you recommend anything underbarrel? such as a GL or a SG?
also, how do the optics work?

I don't know how you do it, but you get the job done time after time. I have an of topic question for you -- I've been having trouble downloading my creations from PMG lately. Any advice?

I don't know how I do it either, haha! Critisising your own work like it's someone else's in combination with being perfectionistic I guess.
To answer your question: nobody can save jpg anymore because of a flash update on all browsers. What I do is make the weapon incredibly large and screencap in multiple parts, stitching them together in Paint.NET or Photoshop right after.

Thanks,

I thought it was my computer (or the nut behind the keyboard!),as I'm using an older system w/Windows XP. I know I should have suspected something when my work computer (a Windows 7 machine) also wouldn't save the things either. Unfortunately, I don't currently have photoshop and can't seem to get used to Paint.net. Guess my days of gun pimping are over, for now at least.

One other question, if you know the answer: are Skipper and Dr.Noob still working on PMG -- in terms of updates? Or is the program caput (going the way that Pimp My Airsoft went).

Anyway, thanks again -- I'm sure I be favoriting more of yours!

I like to think of Paint.NET as a simplified version of Photoshop. I mean, sure, it'll take time to get used to, but so does photoshop. I bet photoshop even requires a lot more time to get used to.

For all we know, Dr.Noob is busy with university. We haven't heard from him in about 2 years or so. Skipper still draws guns, but without Dr. Noob giving them color and shading and implementing them into PMG, there isn't going to be any changes.

Your guns are always so professional looking, .408 round in a GM6/MICOR .50 style gun is also pretty genius.

A bullpup Sniper Rifle is I have always thought is a great idea.it's compact and still accurate.

Oh god, Bullpups. <3

Even though it's not suited, this would be one disaster of a close quarters weapon. (In a great way.) If you don't miss only one round would do horrid damage to the target.
