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!

Eh, Kriss mechanism is creating a problem in order to solve it, outside of their videos of someone limpwristing a UMP nobody has that many problems handling .45 ACP subguns. Solution to accurate auto fire is bursts, not an overcomplicated swingy thingy that'd let you run though all your ammo faster. I also can't see firing a compromise semi-rifle round as fast as an MG42 working out that well for the swingy thingy. D:

Its really really beautiful, respect for that and also for all the other concepts. I really like them :)

Question is, would modeling them be allowed for games like ArmA 3? Or are there maybe already finished models? :o

Brilliant work.

Just one thing,,,
why is the bipod attached to the barrel, rather than the rail underneath.

some weapons function better with the bi-pod attached to the barrel, probably more structurally sound to its body as well. even providing more room for attachments on the under-rail

I mean no offense, I've been focused on assault rifles especially ar15 builds so I can accept that other weapon machenics won't behave in the same way, from my experience I can tell (at least for AR15), free float barrel performs better and up to 80% of the rail on an AR is being wasted.

I know many LMGs with their bipod attached to the barrel but......

So, to the people asking about the rounds, and why use a 6.8 mil rather than a 5.56 or a 7.62, it's a matter of being the best combination of the two. The 5.56 has easily controlled recoil, meaning that follow up shots, especially at range, are easier. However, it doesn't have enough powder to fire out at the ranges that the 7.62 has. While the 7.62 has range on it side, the recoil can be unmanageable, especially trying to put a burst on target at greater ranges. The 7.62 does have the ability to punch through certain types of body armor due to it's larger powder charge, but causes very little damage to the human body because it's moving so fast. The 5.56 doesn't have the same power as the 7.62 in terms of armor penetration, but it does cause more damage to the human body because it moves slower.
Now, the 6.8 combines the two rounds. The recoil is as manageable as the 5.56 for follow up shots at range, while having the greater range of the 7.62. The round can punch through certain types of body armor like the 7.62, while maintaining the damage of the 5.56.
The down side to the round is that it's an intermediate round. It wont go to the same range as the 7.62, nor have the same armor piercing ability, and it wont have the same manageability that the 5.56 does, and it wont cause the same damage to the human body. In terms of modern engagements, which are typically at closer ranges, this round would excel, but i would try to upgrade the marksman variant's round size to give it some range.
In terms of recoil, the kriss extraction system was a fantastic idea for minimizing the recoil. Please keep it up AlexJJessup. big fan of your work!

Wouldn't it better to use the 6.5 x 39 mm Grendel? That round is even better than the 5.56 x 45 mm, 6.8 x 43 mm and 7.62 x 51 mm with the advantages of all three rounds and minimal disadvantage of all three rounds.

the 6.8 spec was made to replace the 556 for punching power and a BC even thou the brass casing is 43MM instead 45mm but it is bigger in the casing's inter and outer diameter allowing a larger volume for gun powder; which is also why a stander 30 round 556 mag only holds 25 rounds of 6.8 spec. All going with what you said.

I'd suggest bumping up to a slightly larger round for the sniper variant to squeeze out a bit more range, but that's just my opinion.
And is that foregrip removable?

Cool design, but I disagree with the recoil focus.

The reason all the recoil is focused into the shoulder is because it's a lot of mass there and can absorb the force much easier, but with something big as a rifle, SMG and Sniper, the force being in the handle can result in damaging the wrist more.

The fact that the Kriss is controllable in fully automatic firing .45ACP shows the system works. The fact that you can do it one handed, shows that the system works well.

The force is in front of the hand, and a lot of the force would still transfer back through the mass of the gun, just like on the Kriss. I'm not sure how it could damage the wrist. In either case, I do entertainment design, not engineering.

I know a little bit about guns, but I'm no gun nut. So I have a question. Any reason not to use pullbup? From my point of view it's overall simply just better. Serious answers please, I'm interested in why.
Maybe the vector is better in regards to the recoil, but still. I mean with the obvious advantage of a smaller gun in general.

While bull-pups are a decent gun, reloading behind the trigger hand is harder than it looks, and doing it quickly while stressed out is darn near impossible, especially since the breach isn't in your sight line normally. Most bull-pup weapons are more prone to jamming, and the amount of strain being put on the mechanics is greater than the strain on weapons where the action is in front of the trigger. Overall, i'd personally sacrifice a shorter silhouette for less jamming and longevity. The L85 assault rifle, while it looks like it'd be great, is so problematic. The firing pin is prone to breaking due to the strain, it jams too often, and the magazine catch breaks. Soldiers have been known to fix bayonets and charge enemies 200 yards away rather than set up and shoot it out. The P90 has to be properly maintained, or it'll jam every magazine. And in an extended firefight, normal guns heat up to red-hot and send a round out of the side of the barrel. The only problem then is that the gun has to be thrown away. With a bull-pup, where the round exits the barrel is usually somewhere around where your off hand is placed. I'd go with a weapon with the action in front of my hand every time, until they can fix those problems.

I shot both and the only reason the vector didn't really have a kick was because it was shooting .45 ACP. The bullpup has the same amount of kick as a ar. The only reason I can see for using the vector over the bullpup is because they prefer the vector style over the bullpup.

Bullpups have a lot of design issues, and the ONLY thing they offer is an overall shorter length, by maybe 7 inches or so. They're mechanically more complex, triggers are always clunkier and less responsive feeling due to the longer trigger linkage, they're harder to use prone because of the positioning of the magazine, slower to reload since our brains are very accustomed to bringing hands together even in the dark, gasses from the firing are right under your cheek/face, balance is unnatural because humans are used to balancing weight between the hands, not between the shoulder and hand, etc.

TLDR; Bullpups are shorter, but that comes at the cost of a whole host of other issues. And a shorter gun is really only needed when indoors or when getting into and out of vehicles, so it's not worth the trade off most of the time.
