The Guns of Araea: Model 30 by Kazanlak10 The Guns of Araea: Model 30 by Kazanlak10
The Kirscher Model 30 is a heavy large frame top break revolver chambered for the powerful .452 High Impulse round. It is marketed as a sidearm for hunters, ranchers, and other individuals who might require a handy means of defense against dinosaurian threats. Though not generally used for protection against human criminals or bandits (due to the fact that a smaller, easier to control handgun is adequate for that role) , the .452 HI round is certainly more then capable of performing in this function as well. The terminal ballistics of the round against a human torso are "extensive" to say the least.
A certain Port Tarpan crime boss is known to carry an ornately engraved heavyweight model, and the big revolvers are also sometimes seen in use with Wuestenpolizei officers and the occasional maverick New Hope detective as well.
The carbine version, the M30/C, is a popular hunting weapon for medium sized game. Having a longer, compensated barrel, and being more controllable overall then the handgun, the carbine model is actually a somewhat commonly used home defense weapon by Araean citizens, especially in those urban areas where automatic rifles are illegal for civilian ownership.

---------------------------------------
This is a do-over of a revolver I drew last year, along with some other sidearm designs. [link]

What can I say? Big revolvers are neat. Top break revolvers actually aren't very suited for powerful calibers because they are structurally weaker then the swing-out cylinder type revolver. However the "top-break" action was part of my design concept for this thing from the get go. So..let's just say that Araean weapons makers somehow figured out a solution to this problem...
"High Impulse" or HI rounds are Araea's Magnum analogue btw.

You can use a big revolver based on it as long as you credit me somewhere but I'd prefer you not copy it exactly and not use the same name just because the gun ties in with an ongoing project I am working on.

No I just meant I don't mind if you utilize a similar weapon and *base* it off of any of these.  I'd just prefer they not be exact copies.

Well I certainly don't claim to have invented the concept of a revolver-carbine. Suggesting that I took the idea directly from "Call of Duty: Ghosts" is quite a stretch though, seeing as how the upload date on this drawing precedes the release of "Ghosts" by like two years...

It's like he said, the idea and even general design is not new. Isn't the Ghosts version a shotgun? I do admit to a similarity, but it ain't the same gun. To Kazanlac, wondrous job on these by the way. I love the way these look.

Excellent designs, especially the Carbine (getting a S&W 500 vibe with the compensator). Such a shame most people will just compare the carbine version to the one from Metro 2033. It's some kind of law.

However, that may be because there aren't that many revolver rifles around. The only ones I can think of are the the MTs-255 and the Colt Model 1855 (Which was as dangerous to the user as to the enemy, if I recall).

Sorry, I think I may have asked this same question on another one of your pictures, but what program are you making these in?

MS Paint for Windows XP, with some tweaking in Gimp.

What's Gimp, that's not a program I've heard of. Is it available on MAC?
Reply
:iconkazanlak10:
Kazanlak10 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013
Thanks. Gimp is a program available online for free download. I'm not sure if they have a MAC version or not but it wouldn't surprise me. It's fairly similar to Paint but with more features. It has better image editing tools on it so I use it to tweak my drawings after finishing them though i do the bulk of the actual drawing with Paint as I'm quite used to it by this point.

Another suggestion could be a lever-action rifle chambered in the 452 high impulse round. There are lever-action rifles out there that are chambered for rounds like .357 magnum, .44 magnum and .454 Casull.

Cool, revolver carbines, I don't see those often enough.

And let's be honest, the top break revolver design just looks cooler. :B
Reply
:iconkazanlak10:
Kazanlak10 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012
Thanks! Yeah, despite the shortcomings of the top-break system, without it this gun would lack the sort of neat retro-ish quality I had in mind for it. So in this case I'm making a slight sidestep around the plausibility issues of this design.

HaroldPotter Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Well, the strongest is the gate-loading style, with its solid nigh-immovable frame, so it can handle truly massive rounds. Of course, the problem with that style is the abysmally slow reloading speed, which is why the top break and side cylinder mechanisms were invented

And I've think I've even seen giant robots that wield appropriately-sized top-break revolvers, so the rule of cool definitely applies.

The loading speed is why some actually just pulled a pin out and replaced the cylinder- the "American" models from H&R for instance. They actually made a holder for extra chargers- but oddly, you couldn't buy extras... stupid marketing!

Only could go together one way, so no. But the guns themselves left a bit to be desired with fit and finish. They were, however cheap and reliable- and the first double-action revolver marketed in the U.S. It would actually be more correct to say that they, rather than Colt won the west, really. But Colts are still sexier...

Thanks. Webley revolvers were actually my real-world reference but my design embellishments do seem to have inadvertently resulted in a somewhat Schofield-esque look as well.

I think it's mostly the pivot and cylinder that make the schofield pop up. also posssibly it's due to my recent obsession with it. By the way, what program do you use?

I use MS Paint for Windows XP with a mouse to do the drawing/coloring and after finishing them I use a Gimp filter tool to refine the appearance of the drawings.

Top breaks interest me but to be honest they aren't a class of firearm I know a lot about. Webley revolvers were the primary real-world reference for my drawing though.

Smith & Wesson introduced top-break revolvers in the 1870s and made them until the mid-20th century. Their locking system wasn't as robust as Webley's and loosened up with use.
