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!…

The DMR version is amazing. I want to build that.

I absolutely love this, it's an excitingly innovative yet down to earth and practical gun design.

It's always funny seeing the comments. Folks claiming certain EOtech/Aimpoint models will be obsolete by whenever this rifle enters use. There's really nothing magical about a red dot or holosight. All they do is offer faster (parallax-free) acquisition and improved field of view over iron sights. Any other bells and whistles added will push beyond their intended use.

The only major improvements in electronic reflex sights will be battery life, reticle visibility, reliability, and durability - the actual devices are not going to look fundamentally different decades from now, considering form follows function.

Don't listen to that dickhead ScrewFaceWhatever. Thanks to things like 'pimp my gun' everybody and their brother thinks they're a mechanical engineer. Far as your work goes, I like it. My only criticism would be that HK seems to have a phobia for soft shapes, and would probably cover it in menacing-looking angles. I like that you put effort into the inner workings, and as far as the Super V is concerned, I'd say it fits right in here; it's a future gun! It's supposed to be complex and over the top.

haha thanks man. I get a massive amount of criticism from 'experts' who don't get that it's a design for games/film. It's meant to be fictional; I'm not an engineer. 
That's good feedback, and if I were to redo it now I'd definitely go more that direction. Thanks! :)

haha I want one too. :P
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.
