HK G56 by AlexJJessup HK G56 by AlexJJessup
Description in the image! A lot of the design is based on existing guns/parts. I was trying to design more from the standpoint of "I work for HK and want to develop a rifle to replace the M4" as opposed to "I just want to draw cool guns."

One of my coworkers is building my G56 design and doing a video series on polycount, check it out!…

Well, To be constructive in my Critique There Are a few issues to be worked out. 

First is the Designation G56 Is a German Rifle designation G stands for gewehr Or Rifle in German M would be a American Designation.

 is operation, The "Super V" operating system would not Work in the method you want for the power of a Intermediate Rifle Cartridge as Described. the bolt would push past the floor plate of the rifle. Also you have borrowed the gas block of a piston operation looks like the XCR. So you would have some kind of Hybrid operation Which would be a totally new one on me. I am not sure it would or could even work.

second is the Accessory system and Accessories
The Rail system you have is borrowed form the XCR. But by 2023 The Army and Marines are probably going to push for Either KeyMod or a M-lok System On the forearm with the Exception of the 12 O'clock position.
Either Keymod or M-Lok reduces weight, removes the need for rail covers making it more user friendly and still allows adding of rails when wanted. Given the way they work I think M-lok would be the best option.

Then You have the Eo-tech sight Which as been pointed out would be a Antique by 2023.
In your other work You Have a Tracking point Sight a Shortened version of that should be mounted on this. Tracking point is already mounting there Wheres on AR rifles, and this has the room for the Controls.
the Final point is a Compliment Sir This is a neat looking concept and you were smart enough not to show it firing Brass and with a Unique magazine.

Thus point to the US Army is invested in the LSAT program which offers Cased Telescoped and Caseless Telescoped Ammo.   
That said I wish you had modeled a Polymer Magazine. 
In terms of Barrel length The Army has been pushing Shorter and 6.8 SPC2 is optimized for Shorter barrels 14.5 inches Standard, 11.5 inch for regular SF A 8.3 Inch PDW Which I feel would have been a better option to partner with the Barrett Sniper Rifle.

most likely for the operation would be super V. if the KRISS group was to make a rifle using the super v operation it would look almost like this

What is this fetish people have for sticking the Super V mechanism on ALL THE THINGS!!11!!one?

Kriss doesn't work that way, and even when it does work, it's an overly complex, overly heavy, overly finicky, overrated solution to a problem that doesn't exist. It's like an AN-94, or a Segway.

Sorry my work offended you lol

Hey, if you're just going to deflect criticism with hot air, feel free. It's really a shame that almost nobody in the concept design community is willing to accept any criticism whatsoever these days. That's how you get shit like last man standing.

Realistic features in a futuristic yet grounded design. Looks like a gun that would be effective, functional and something i would love to own.  I love deviantART!

Hope to see more of this and maybe a story behind the "weather-control" attacks mentioned in other drawings.

Keep up the great work :) (Smile)

Dig the rifle.  Prety sure it's an XCR upper on a Kriss Vector lower with an ACR buttstock.
