How did it work?
How was it supposed to work?
Magic. Turns out it wasn't real though.
Germans are much like the Orcs in 40k except limited to just one field, if their technological autism believes it hard enough it bends the laws of reality in their favor.
Kraut space magic.
Forgotten Weapons did a show on it. It's pretty cool akshuallly.
Nobody knows. The technology used to make them has been lost to the ages.
Like clockwork. Literally and without any positive connotations. Pic related.
It still is less convoluted than the AN-94 Abakan.
How many videogames did the G11 appear in?
I can only think of one good one.
Yeah, fallout 2
Jagged Alliance 2 retard
Wargame Red Dragon. I will concede Fallout 2 counts though.
Yeah, girls frontline :^)
yeah, cruelty squad
Indeed, syphon filter 2
X Com Files? But they had alien material science to make it work.
Why did X-Com Files get bloated with so much retarded shit?
Ah, a Chaser connoisseur.
Jagged Alliance 2 was such a good game, yeah.
At least 5
Dunno but it was my main in Cruelty Squad
Black Ops 1
So well that it's banned by name in Canada even though it was never produced.
With the power of friendship and the magic of the druids
Some guy on reddit has been working on one for some time now, he made a 9mm version some time ago. I'll see if I can dig up some images. https://www.reddit.com/r/GunnitRust/comments/ydlr26/hk_g11_clamping_plate_and_disconnector_complete/
Sometimes I wish I had autism too
The "clockwork" chamber rotates to accept the cartridge vertically and moves it to horizontal position before firing. The entire action also moves backwards for the recoilless hyperburst. That's basically it.
IMO the biggest problem with it that it went all in on the hyperburst mode, which is apparently not all that useful. It complicates everything and increases felt recoil because the entire action rocks forth and back even during normal fire. If you kept the caseless ammo and the clockwork mechanism, but got rid of the recoiling action and the hyperburst, it might be a very interesting rifle.

This reminds me of Metal Storm, another weapon where they concentrated on the wrong feature.
The Metal Storm concept would have worked best either as derringer type self defense weapon or as some form of disposable burst mortar (for smoke/incendiary rounds maybe?). Nothing where serious accuracy or range is called for.
Yeah, much of the complexity comes from the hyperburst. For a truly next-gen weapon, electrical primers (as some autocannons have used for ages) would do away with any of the mechanical nonsense that comes with burst fire since you could just make what would mechanically be a runaway ultra high fire rate MG. And then control, throttle and program it electronically. Could have a fire selector dial with any number of options, like a burst, a leisurely Vickers type full auto, and MG-42-mode.
I have this handy PrepHolelassic explaining the internal mechanism.
