Was planning on building this for a while. While I like how the result looked, I realized the feasibility of such a weapon in real life was next to nil. What was I thinking having a cornershot weapon with a bullpup mechanism?

I actually really enjoy how this came out. The iron sights are magnificent, and the feature seems to work wonderfully. Only thing I would think to improve upon would be the somewhat gap in between the iron sights. Looks a tad weird to me, I suppose.

 

Also, something like this does exist in real life. Israeli, I do believe.

 

Hope to see more!

Well, I had never seen a technique/bionicle based gun made before, but it is still very cool.  I especialy liked the fact that it fits perfectly with your custom made bionicle.

I like the gun overall, but it had a flaw that didn't make it a gun. When you did the left to right pose shot, the barrel moved with the left hand. So that kinda made it seem like it was an unreal gun. Though I do wish to see more guns.

Um, I'm not sure if I understand you, can you clarify?

The gun barrel portion swivels. But the gun overall looks great.

Um, that's the point, since it's a cornershot gun.

[color=#808080;][font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"]It's supposed to swivel. It's a gun for shooting around corners. :lol:[/color][/font]

Ooh.....I've never heard of that gun until now. It makes perfect sense to me.

Yes they exist, but the problem is that it conflicts with the bullpup mechanism, since conventional cornershot has the ammunition loaded in the front, while the mechanism loads from the back. At best, swiveling would cause the bullets to fragment into pellets, much like the Krummlauf.
