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!

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.

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.

Holy cow! Why haven't they used that Recoil reduction system in other weapon platforms yet? I like these designs a lot!

First, I'd like to complement the high quality of this design, because its awesome.
And the reason it isn't used, I believe, is, because (although I'm not expert so correct me if I'm wrong), the majority of the recoil is caused by the force of the bullet being fired - all reaction must have an equal and opposite reaction - meaning that the same amount of force put into the launching of the round must be forced back onto you, causing recoil. Now, the reason that this force doesn't appear to be the same as the bullet is simply the dispersion of this force i.e. the force is caught throughout your shoulder and body, rather then the small point of the bullet. This means that the recoil dampener that is shown wouldn't be all that effective (as it is reducing the force from the ejection of the cartridge, not the force of the bullet) - (although it is an admittedly cool idea), the effort and cost (as well as the extra weight/size), wouldn't be much more effective then simply using recoil dampeners in the stock, and heavier weight at the end of the barrel (often through suppressors) to reduce kick. Therefore why, in a very long winded way, I don't think the design has been used much yet.
Hopefully all that made sense, I think that's all right. :)

Seem's to me, the mechanism doesn't negate the shoulder recoil, so much as it just pulls the gun down in the moment after the bullet's fired, keeping the barrel more or less in the same place for a more accurate followup shot. Even if it only performs slightly better than the conventional way of negating recoil, I would see no reason not to tinker with it in hopes of making it work better! That's what people do best, is it not...?

It is! I suppose slightly better is a leap in the right direction. Any progress can become good progress, so who knows, maybe in a few years time it will become a regular mechanism and here is where we saw it first.

I think its an awesome idea, using the KRISS recoil design for a rifle, we can start using more powerful rounds again with less recoil and more accuracy

This is excellent. I really like how you've designed a realistic, plausible rifle instead of making something that's cool but nonsense like so many other gun designs are. Well done good sir! Clap 

Now make a light machine gun variant. EVIL Laughter!

I absolutely love the design for so many different reasons, first and foremost, they look amazing, and beyond plausible, secondly, I really wish people would "design" or at least illustrate "futuristic" weaponry with the Kriss Vector recoil reduction type design. Honestly amazing.
