M-290 Rhino 50 cal. Rifle -Prize Gun 3- by dronner66 M-290 Rhino 50 cal. Rifle -Prize Gun 3- by dronner66
I really need to go faster with these things...
After a long wait I give you the M-290 Rhino Rifle, my 3rd prize gun. This one's for Epicsunrise [link] . He wanted a rifle that fired 50. caliber Beowulf rounds. Here it is!!!!

Now, let me give you the details on this beast. The M-290 was designed around the Beowulf round. It's Receiver uses a bullpup rotation system similar to the P-90 but is vertical and relies on electronics instead of gravity to feed rounds. The main reason for using this system is to fit more rounds. the M-290's mag can fit twice as many rounds as a standard mag. Because of its larger round count the M-290 is able to fire in full-auto and semi-auto modes effectively. Other features include an electronic firing system, recoil dampeners for the bolt, and a recoil Stock.

 Very good looking, but small defects in design, or description?
The gas vents in the muzzle break would throw dirt and debris in the shooters face when prone. All cuts should face up, not down.
Secondly, this thing would absolutely useless in full auto because of uncontrollable recoil and cheek weld pounding.
Do not get me wrong, it is great art work, want a paid gig?

Thanks for the feed back, this gun was a quick thing I build for a friend so not a lot of thought went into it. What are we talking about when you say "paid gig"?

Clip has become acceptable for magazine, people need to get over it.

Not for me, I can't really get over it, sorry.
It's just a pet-peeve of mine, apparently.
