Awesome.

Pimpmygun is just far too much fun.

It might just be me, but the magazines in the newer assault types 102,104 etc seem like they'd get in the way of the shooter with their curvyness.

I really think the images provided are really useful, but when I first saw the pdf, I kind of had a similar reaction. Also, the way the magazines curve near the handle on these weapons make me wonder if if might not lead to straps on the weapon or a character's backpack etc getting easily caught/tangled with the weapon.

Additionally, I guess one other thought is that the magazines on these weapons seem to be really far aft on the weapon, and it makes me wonder how the spent cartridges (if there are any) may be ejected and wether or not the eject may be too close to the firer's upper arm or face.

Anyway, just some thoughts.

Yep, that could be a problem. :) No gun is perfect. Those are large-capacity magazines. Or they should be. Oops and damn. Wrong magazine sizes. All of the Type 100 should be 65 round magazines.

All 2320AD firearms are caseless, binary, or gauss. The Manchurian guns are conventional caseless.

Also, check this out http://world.guns.ru/assault/as39-e.htm

Hi
 
Thanks for the link and the original pdf that you posted. One of the things that originally attracted me to 2300AD was how so much of the tech and equipment seemed so reasonable and realistic, and this new stuff that you have posted (along with the other 2320AD stuff that you have done) really helps continue that.

Regards

You used this site?

How epic...At least that saved us drawing more stuff.

Yep, and each picture accredited to the site. The site is a great deal of fun, one where I've been wasting far too much time lately.

Not trying to be a nitpicker or anything (because I'm loving what's coming out and want more of the same), but with caseless cartridges, you'd have no need for a curved magazine as the cartridges are rectangles, not cylinders with rimmed edges. The only benefit that I can see from the curved magazine is that is protrudes marginally less below the weapon.

The H&K G11 rifle doesn't even have an external magazine, yet it holds 50 rounds. The FN P90 shows yet another way of storing rounds without having an externally protruding magazine.

Anyway, jsut some thoughts, and I am happy to be "shot down".

Lastly there's the old school tubular magazine. No reason it couldn't be set up for quick changeover. Very high capacity potentially if you then put a rotating helical system inside it.

There's a russian SMG with that design. http://world.guns.ru/smg/smg08-e.htm
