MR-240 Maverick Final


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.

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.

Reminds me of the revolver from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Man was that gun badass after you got the explosive rounds -- essentially made it a mini-grenade launcher.

... I am in love with this revolver. I love any revolvers, but break action models are always awesome looking, because they're unexpected. The fact that it also has a heat sink, the concept gives me thought after thought for story ideas. Now, where's the... Ah yes, here it is. Fave button.

The 7.66x33mm is fictitious. The Bottom cylinder is often known as the "6 o-clock" position, and firing from it doesn't reduce recoil: it reduces "muzzle flip", and "felt recoil". Reducing recoil is impossible, but that's all semantics so I can forgive. S&W makes revolvers of all sizes, but S&W revolvers of this size would be able to fit 8 rounds of a .35 in diameter cartridge, so this one with only 6 of a .30 in diameter shell seems a bit over engineered. This gun doesn't look like it has moving parts beyond the cylinder, hammer, trigger, and hinge; so how is it semi-auto? Unless it has a power supply to index the cylinder and cock the hammer it can't be semi-auto. This automatic heat sink you speak of also sounds like it would need a power supply if its going to purge some fantastic heat build up instantaneously (which realistically would not be a problem for a revolver). Perhaps your artistic endeavors would benefit from some first-hand firearms familiarization.

Yes, the round is fictitious, so is the gun, the technology it uses and the world it exists in. In the picture it may not be exactly 7.66x33m, that's just a ballpark. Figured it's a concept, so it's open to change later. Couldn't be asked to accurately measure.

And yes. Semantics.

The rounds themselves, instead of using gunpowder or similar solid propellents, uses a special mixture of gas that exists in this fictitious world. When the trigger is pulled, the firing pin hits the primer and causes a spark, this ignites the gas inside and causes it to expand as well as electrify the barrel. The current travels down the barrel along with the bullet, speeding it up along the way. This combined with the pressure from the gas causes the round to leave the barrel at around 4,200 feet per second using a low mixture gas and up to 6,000 feet per second using a high mixture. The average round for this gun goes at about 4,600 FPS.

The part about it being semi-automatic was back when the design had a similar firing mechanism to modern day revolvers. Had an exposed hammer as well as other features. Changed the design midway through and forgot to change the description.

The heat sink is charged and powered on from a round being fired. When a round is fired and the barrel is electrified, it powers the heat sink long enough for it to catch and vent any heat build-up with the gun. The main reason for this sink however is due to certain types of rounds in the universe this gun exists in.

I really should put info like this up. Always forget to properly explain things.

Pretty cool. I like the hinged design as opposed to the swing-open action of most real-world revolvers--arguably a less durable decision, but it's a fictional weapon, so I can easily cut it some slack as it looks cool (and has real-world precedence), and decent engineering can make the design viable anyways. The cartridge caliber as described (7.66mm ~ .30 caliber) seems a bit small by combat-worthy pistol round standards--especially considering the visual representation is pretty much in-line with real-world high-powered revolver cartridges like .38 Special or .357 Magnum as opposed to, say, a 7.65mm rifle cartridge...but again, it's a fictional weapon, so firing customized ammo is perfectly reasonable. ;)

Anyway, that's my $0.02 worth. Overall, I like it!

Revolvers don't really need heat sinks. Being air cooled is enough.

There's no considerable overheat with a 6-shot semi-auto revolver.
Uhm, sorry to nitpick, but a revolver-sized sidearm that fires rifleshells and has yet only 6 shots, has no rail capability and no exchangeable drum?
*LOL*

You know that there exist swingout and swingdown revolvers already that can have the whole drum exchanged?

Have you even ever operated a real revolver or do you know firearms only from videogames?

I DOUBT THAT.

Read THIS so you'll understand that your "design" gets so many thing about firearms and firearm design WRONG:

I am looking for criticism, yes. But even more so I'm looking for something constructive. Pointing out flaws that I may have missed I appreciate, but next to that I want to hear ways on how I can improve.

For the heat sink, the weapon's barrel design, firing mechanism and some types of ammunition used generate more heat than your standard modern day revolver and therefore the sink was added. I suppose I'm at fault for that for not stating so above and for not putting more detail into describing how the weapon exactly works. I'll be sure to fix that.

The lack of rails...Well I just hate rails on a good revolver. Makes it look ugly as hell.

As for the cylinder, yes I'm aware that some have exchangeable cylinders, but since when does the cylinder HAVE to be exchangeable? Call me old fashioned.

"Have you even ever operated a real revolver or do you know firearms only from videogames? I DOUBT THAT." This right here is the main reason I'm telling you to grow up. So yea. Grow up.

And please, by all means, clarify what exactly I did "wrong" with my design.

Interesting design, especially when it comes to the barrel, although I can understand why people interested in attaching things to it would be annoyed. Still, it's a breath of fresh air among all the rail-adorned guns. Also, I like the soft texture on the grip. Looks comfortable.

I really like it and the sleek design of it. It looks more futuristic that anything I kind of imagine it shooting bullets kind of like in the blade movies that have different element abilities.

Wait...7.66, or 7.62? Because I just looked up .30 Carbine, and the metric designation is 7.62x33mm.

7.66 for the round the gun would fire. As pointed out below, it may not be an accurate size in the picture due to it being a concept.

Oh, alright then. In that case, that's quite a coincidence. With you the metric designation of the .30 Carbine being 7.62x33mm, I guessed really close to it, huh? XD
