    I dont know exactly where this would fit in but i suppose it would fit mostly in here.

    I have a new design i mentioned before in another thread and i think i finished designing it in AutoCAD. I want to see what people think of it. I will post the pictures and explain in a different post if anybody asks for the details.

    I want open the spectrum here. ANYONE who has an idea and/or design for a NEW GUN, or part/accessory for a gun (not new gun as in take a M4 and put a different hand guard and stock on it, or take a scope and slice it in half and call it "new") can post here. But it must be a completely new design that has not been done before. If you designed and built it and theres only one or two like it that YOU have designed and built, you can post it here.

    Everything under here i did before the two above.

    The sights are based off the M16 family.

    Well.. for airsoft... 6mm... But if i were to advertise it to real firearms manufacturer.. (i think thats how you spell it). id have it .223 (5.56).

    I also thought about making CQB, and sniper versions.

    And it's ok If your not a senior member. What I meant by that is I'd like their professional opinion on the design. What they think of it, what I could improve, what I could take out, etc. but i accept anybody's opinion. Any opinion is a good opinion.

    I like it.... Its alot like an XM8.. What if you brought out the bottom of the hand guard and added a built in flip out fore grip. Ris on top and on sides maybe? It is what I would do But I like it :) YOU MADE ME THINK thats a new one lol

    Lol. I combined an XM8, a g36, a M16/M4 and some other gun and made this. And there are RIS on the sides and top. Those are the black bars going across the gun in the first 2 pictures

    I aimed having the barrel free float. But i realized later on that I can't do that with the open space between the carry handle looking part and the barrel and rest of the gun. So what I am going to do tomorrow is make a piece that just holds the barrel and attaches to the sides of the gun.

    I find it to be too blocky right now... What gearbox type are you putting in it?

    What would be realy cool is a button on the side with a spring loaded fore grip built in and when you press the butt pop.

    I plan on having a version 2.. Or whatever type that fits in the m16/m4. And about the blockyness- I can't really do much about it right now. I can only go to the extents that AutoCAD Inventor lets me.

    So like a hidden foregrip? So when you push a button, the foregrip comes out?

    I think the main issue I see is that the sight area is gigantic (the whole carry handle), which isn't all that practical. Also, individually and overall the carry handle and complete gun are very tall.

    I plan on having the whole gun from buttstock to tip of muzzle being only as tall as a fully extended m4 with a 6point retractable stock.

    What these guys said. I'm not a fan of the built-in carrying handles on rifles as well, as it removes some of the modularity from the gun and makes it much more high-profile.

    Ok. Thanks. Oh. Do you know anyone who could build the body of the gun for me? Or should I send the design to a manufacturer instead? And yes. If I do, before I do, I'll make some changes from the input. But things I can't change like the carry handle, would have to stay.


    Sorry oscar. I didn't get you said. Where would the charging Handle be like in the g36?
