I'm gonna have to start by telling you I know nothing about weapons compared to you guys, and I've never fired one (and probably never will knowing I live in The Netherlands). I am very much interested in how they work though, and I've been working on designing a non-existant assault rifle for a while now. Early concepts were merely mixtures from existing guns like this one:
(Yeah, I know the thing appears to have two magazines, but this was just a concept.)
Essentially, I'd like to incorporate two systems into the gun: a bullpup gas-operated configuration and an anti-recoil system comparable to the Kriss Super V, which would be shifted towards the front of the gun, preventing any muzzle climb. I want to make it the best possible rifle, which means the gun needs to be as accurate as possible, even when firing 7.62 NATO rounds on full auto.
I love how the SCAR, G36, P90 and TAR-21 look so there will be a lot of resemblance to those visually.
I'll come up with basic schematics of the internals as soon as possible and I'd like to know if I got all the parts correctly, if the gun could work theoretically.
Do you think a bullpup 7.62mm assault rifle with a Super V system could work? Beware the system preventing barrel elevation will be positioned in front of the trigger, requiring some complicated internals because the receiver is behind the trigger.
Thanks for any reply!
