    0%. I guess it does give a slightly longer barrel relative to OAL, but in exchange for significantly more complexity and a mag of maybe 4 rounds if its a double stack, you would just use a revolver.

      It doesn't even have a longer barrel. A handgun design that isn't grip fed is absolutely moronic. Such a system in a grip fed pistol might actually deliver a longer barrel, like the bond arms "bullpup 9".

        You can't gripfeed this because the rounds are too large.
        In the lore (ttrpg rulebook) it's using 6 shots of some kind of 14mm.

    less practical than if it actually chambered a cartridge

      it looks like the rounds are pushed backwards into a cylinder. it's a recoil operated, magazine fed recolver. basically the worst handgun you could make.

    The slide pulling that far back is really stupid and borderline dangerous

      Yeah, it reminds me of the old Gabbett-Fairfax Mars pistol. It was an early automatic, fired extremely powerful cartridges, and had a similar system where it pulled the cartridges backward out the magazine before loading. They did work, but people who tested them in trials found the mechanism to be scarily dangerous.

      The stupid thing is why incorporate the revolving part of the mechanism at all? That's just unnecessary complexity on top of an already complex system. Just have it be a straight rear-fed system like the Mars or the Boberg/Bond Arms. The low mag capacity is strange too. It's already a big clunky gun, why not have it hold a few more rounds? With a capacity of only a handful of rounds a revolver becomes more appealing design.

    Moving the round rearwards from the magazine in order to have a longer barrel with a given magazine position is not very practical, but it's decently plausible, the boberg pistol does that.
    The main absurdity with this design is the chamber, or lack thereof. The cartridge in this animation only pokes the bullet into the barrel, not the casing, so supporting the massive pressure inside the casing is being done by only the casing and the moving parts that got the round there. Not a good design for safety or power. Whatever level of sci fi materials necessary to make it work would be better used in many other ways.

      Its a revolver with two chambers. You can see it spinning ingame. The case is seemingly ejected by pushing it out the front of the chamber.

    the point of that gun is to have a long recoil action in a handgun.

    nothing has been long recoil since ww1 because it's completely unnecessary for anything less than 50 bmg. despite that, it looks very similar to the boberg bullpup action. but the boberg action is short recoil, like a regular fricking gun, and the whole point of it was to make it as small and short as possible, not as long as possible

      >and the whole point of it was to make it as small and short as possible
      That explains the bullpup feeding, but it doesn't explain why the revolver is there at all.

      It's only advantage would be if the round is too long to fit in a grip, but then why have such a small mag.

      But it's not long recoil. It's short recoil. The barrel stops moving rearward and the chambers continue moving to complete the cycle.

    the more impressive thing is that mag can somehow hold 10 rounds of what I can only assume to be .50cal rounds

    It's not practical. Canonically the gun was a one of a kind custom piece made for Johnny Silverhand, so I don't think the goal was necessarily practicality, he just wanted something unique and flashy because he was a rockerboy and that's what rockerboys do.

    Hitler was a rockerboy as well which is why you saw all sorts of impractical German vehicles during the war.

    Nothing wrong with it really. I'm guessing those are CT cases so the moving chamber is necessary. Now as for the revolving setup that's not really necessary, a single chamber setup would have been simpler and lighter weight.
