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.

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).
