MR-240 Maverick by The-Xie MR-240 Maverick by The-Xie
The Rells MR-240 Maverick, more lovingly known as "Mister Mav."

The Maverick is an unusual piece. Designed by Ivan Rells, the man responsible for designing most of the ships used in the Vredden Navy, the Maverick is a six round, semi-automatic, break action revolver that fires a 7.66x33mm. The reason for it being so unusual is that it was designed to be a military firearm, even though nearly all weaponry in the Vredden military is required to be magazine fed. It's workings are all internal and are sealed except for the exposed parts of the cylinder, thus keeping the gun cleaner for longer periods of time. The gun fires from the bottom cylinder, decreasing recoil to an extent by pushing into the user's hands, rather that over them.

Another strange addition is the ejector switch. When the switch is pushed down, the front of the gun swings down to a 45 degree angle using a spring loaded mechanism. It then proceeds to automatically eject the empty shells from the gun, allowing users a faster reload time.

The gun also features a built in heat sink. This sink captures most of the heat created from a round firing and disperses it at a steady rate out of the sides of the gun. If six rounds are fired in rapid succession, the heat sink will purge all of the excess heat and be perfectly cool again by time the user reloads and aims for another shot.

The Maverick's unusual design also prevents it from equipping attachments. According to Ivan, this was also intentional. When asked in an interview by a fan why the gun lacks attachment potential, Ivan responded with his now infamous line, "Deal with it."

8 hours of work. 27 hours of procrastination.

Criticism and comments requested and appreciated.

Reminds me of the Settler Pistol from RAGE. Does it come with the binocular? Also, I apologize for the bad joke.

I usually don't like hammerless revolvers. This is an exception.

Slightly different firing mechanism that is also all internal.

As soon as I saw this, I was thinking of the Jakobs revolvers in Borderlands. Very modern revolvers, rooted in the old western style. A spring loader though would've made them much better weapons.

The design looks nice, and the grip ergonomic. I wouldn't mind having one of these guns.
