plays Jaws theme
hoo boy, here we go. I’m going try to be as constructive as possible, but I don’t have a lot of practice.
To start with, the PX assault rifle:
First off it looks cool, which is a big thing for a game. Reminds me of the gun from Alien. And it looks futuristic without being a giant box which is even better.
Based on other concept art I’m guessing that the two circles on the front are attachment points for accessories. Looks heavy for its purpose but okay.
The handgrip looks uncomfortable to hold to be honest, and the buttstock looks to be pretty short and low.
A design question I have is why the chamber starts so far forward in front of the magazine. If you started the chamber right at the front of the magazine you’d get that more barrel length in for the same weapon length which be a more accurate gun.
The big problems are the magazine, the ejection port, the safety and the charging handle.
The safety: where is it?
The charging handle: ditto.
The magazine is a simple fix: just some clear plastic over the hole. Dirt getting into the mechanism is a bad thing after all.
The ejection port is, to be blunt, fatal to the design. That bar has got to go. It is blocking the casing from ejecting. Neither hole is big enough for an empty casing to get through, let alone a dud round that’d need to be cleared.
Onto the sniper rifle:
basic design looks good so far.
But where are the the safety and the charging handle?
Also the lack of a bottom on the finger guard is a safety issue. something could easily snag in there and pull the trigger accidentally. Buttstock looks short again.
:edit: also where is the ejection port?
Yay boomstick. Hey I can see the safety.
Wondering why there is the circle accessory attachment in the middle of the gun.
The buttstock is short and low. this is a very big deal on a shotgun as they kick very hard.
The ejection port is a big problem. It is too small both in height and length to eject a spent shell. When fired shotgun shells get half an inch to an inch longer as the crimped plastic at the front unfolds. The port is also misaligned high with regards to the barrel.
If you still want those vertical shells on the model, moving them onto the buttstock would be the way to go.
:edit: oh yeah the pump action. That white metal band at the back of the action would prevent the action from cycling fully
I think that is enough for now.
