Recon Weapons by AlexJJessup Recon Weapons by AlexJJessup
Just making mostly aesthetic changes to the M82, and illustrating how TrackingPoint's scope would work with it. Also did an 9mm smg which started as a SCAR and was changed to look a bit like a mix of an MP5 and UMP.
The scope diagrams are rushed, I kitbashed a number of sketchup models I had saved to quickly get what you see. The point is more to illustrate some of the function as opposed to presenting a final design for a scope and its accessories.

The aiming system seems like it would go very well with 25mm air bursting ammunition, which would have the benefit of retaining some degree of lethality even without a direct hit. The Barrett XM109 (images) was designed to accept 25mm ammunition and there was apparently some talk of adapting it to use air bursting rounds, so the idea isn't entirely without precedent.

That's a cool idea! There's a lot of applications for it. We don't exactly have the technology for it yet, but we're close. I think one of the main uses would be for tracking with the intent of avoiding instead of shooting, but we can spot with drones easier than having to have direct line of sight.

looks like an M98B on the top and the bottom gun looks like a UMP and an MP5 had a baby together

bottom almost entirely from a SCAR, but pushed it towards a UMP with a HK fire selector. Rifle is mostly aesthetic / proportion changes.

Also you should look into doing other types of set ups, like infiltration gear, demolition/EOD and anything else you could think of. I REALLY like these designs so far!

I love both of your rifle designs; I love the SMG better. The only change I would make to the SMG is I would make it a .45; a 9mm is good, but it doesn't have the UMPH and stopping power of a .45. A .45 round will knock you down no matter where it hits you: arm, leg, chest,  even your pinky toe. Great job thought! Keep 'em coming.

It's funny how there are people who seriously believe those .45 ACP myths (probably due to Hollywood and various overrated FPS games).

It's not a bad cartridge, but it's no magic bullet either. There have been plenty of officer involved shootings where .45 duty ammo failed to take down suspects, while some even continued to fight with multiple hits to COM.

Terminal ballistics involves a good bit of voodoo magic to be honest.

Yepppp. Lotta people chime in about round sizes and whatnot. Frankly, most people stop what they're doing when they get shot lol. I mostly shoot 9mm, and prefer it.

Like your use of the stock photo (not being sarcastic). 
Something tells me that unless the trigger lock can be turned off (it's dumb, just like shooters that would actually NEED it), it's useless when a plan goes in the usual direction, (it doesn't survive contact), then it's useless.

I think I didn't quite explain it right. You can have it set to automatically fire (without having to pull the trigger) as soon as you aim at the indicated spot (ie, where the scope has calculated you will get a hit). Would be optional though. Could also just have a slightly inflated trigger pressure that decreases to a very light pull once aimed at correct spot.

Okay. It's just that controlling the shooter never works out.

This is just my opinion on the sniper system and not meant to detract from your designs, which look amazing as always. A .50 does not make the best anti personnel weapon, yes it is used as one but it primarily an anti material rifle designed to punch through hard targets.  .338 Lapua Magnum, to me, makes more sense in many ways. Can hit targets just as far if not farther than a .50 with similar kinetic impact, it currently holds the record as far as I know. Also with the smaller round it would save a lot of weight to be able to either carry more ammunition or other equipment.  Just my 2 cents, not taking anything away from your design, like I said they rock! :)

It is true that the .338 Lapua Magnum is lighter but the .50 also has the ability to punch through steel and concrete or any thing ells that gets in the way at a mile away.

^ All true. .338 Lapua is better against human targets as far as I know.

Not a problem at all. I'm highly impressed with the Barrett's semi-skeletalized frame. Very akin to that of Barrett's own M-240LW project. I have a feeling that the successor to the 107 Program will be equally, if not moreso, skeletal than this.

Here's some video of it being fired. That beautiful baby hit SHOT Show 2012 and toured for a bit the whole of the year. It started out as a prototype back in 2011, but I haven't heard much about it since November. They shaved 6-pounds off the B-variant of the system. The Firearm Blog has some coverage on it here. I'm thinking it was to be a contestant to the M-204L in the M240B Weight Reduction Program, however the L-variant came around as far back as '09-'10. I'm not exactly sure what they're up to with the LW though.

However, while this is in the 7.62x51mm GPMG category, I foresee a direct challenger coming soon in the LSAT program, if they focus on MG-type weapons. AAI Land just won a new contract from the DoD for their excelling LSAT LMG series of weapons. If they can make a 7.62mm version and keep it in the 10-pound range, that will be nearly 18-pounds lighter than the M-240B, 12-pounds lighter than the L-variant and between 8-10 pounds lighter than the Mk.48 GPMG.

And just for any future reference. There was a rumor, last year, that the U.S. Marine Corps was testing the AA-12 shotgun. Just in case you have any interest. *hinthint* Haha

Wow thanks for all the info man! Interesting reads. Really fascinated by the LSAT telescoped ammo, so much potential there. I love seeing developments like that where the developers are thinking outside the box. Feel free to pass on other articles as you see them! Chances are I'll incorporate a lot of it into my work. :)

The AA-12 is awesome, I love how it can blow the frame of a door with little danger to people around it. And also how simple and reliable it is.

Not a problem, at all, Alex. That's what I do. Study of military arms and history, as a Freelance Defense Analyst. Just holler at me with questions in a note and I'll happily find out the information for you, with photos and links, of course.

The AA-12 is a gorgeous weapon, but I just wish I could find something newer on the testing, something a little more concrete, y'know.
