    Nice collections of deadly parts...but did you get permission from asXas for the blue tape(tm)?

      I love everything about this except the blue tape. I'm about tired of seeing ridiculous blue tape all over the place, with the worst being wrapped around suppressors--that tape would be a melted, gooey mess after the first mag dump. For the love of Pete (Hines maybe?!), please skip the blue tape, or maybe give us a no-tape option.

      Also, that green wrap and string you have around the flash hider would likewise be melted or on fire after just a few rounds (unless that's actually a tiny suppressor, but it looks like slots under the wrap from what I can tell). Really great design otherwise, and I'm digging (pun alert) the quality welds which highlight a very solid original weapon lurking under the Raider "modifications". An HK53K is nearly this small and is chambered in 5.56, so you're on the right track if you want a short barreled rifle option. Maybe have a unique version that exists somewhere in the world that hasn't been molested by Raiders yet; a factory original appearing gun would be pretty sweet too! Looking forward to getting this in game. And please don't forget a suppressor option if that is indeed a flash hider! Oh, finally, the barrel should be threaded at the muzzle so the brakes, comps, and flash hiders can all attach....

      Thanks for criticism :)
      That thing with a wrap is a makeshift suppressor, made from different scrap pieces. Can't remember what exactly I took as a reference for the cylindrical part, but the notches on it are there for more or less visual purposes, because I figured that it looked a bit bland if it's just a plain cylinder, plus that way it gives more of a makeshift feeling. They definitely don't come all the way through the cylinder, I can promise you that.
      As for the threaded muzzle - there is already an option for that: the barrel tip that is fitted into receiver in the images  is supposed to be a stub option, while the bottom muzzle is a "standart" variant with threads, and thus when you apply any other muzzle attachment, the base of this thing stays visible. :)

    Looks more like a short barrel rifle considering the magazine size like the psychical size and dimeson not capacity but other than that its great and i cant wait to try it out.

      The idea behind that was to make it use much more powerful rounds than it's real-life counterpart, with standart caliber most likely being .44 or .50. I also wanted to keep the possibility of it being converted to some mid-tier rifle rounds like 5.56, which may be not the smartest/safest/easiest thing to do in real life, but it's something that is possible to do for some guns in FO4 already, and as for the safety side - my thought process was "raiders wouldn't care about safety, they only care how well it can kill stuff"
      So yeah, in terms of mag dimensions it's more on a bigger size because the gun is supposed to be a bit of everything. After all, I can picture how someone could jury-rig the mag to fit smaller ammo, but have a really hard time picturing the opposite situation where you would need to cram the ammo into a distinctively smaller mag.
      Hope that answers your comment :)

      Thankfully it's based on the MP5, and thus the G3 which has ALOT of variants around on the market. Including a few MP5 length rifles in 7.62

    This looks absolutely incredible, this needs to be the de-facto weapon or raiders

    I absolutely adore any original weapon design that looks lore friendly for the Fallout universe! Kinda tired of all these modern military guns with EOD Tech sights and ACOGs ... completely breaks immersion. Heading to Pateron!

      That's exactly what I am trying to achieve with those rusty and makeshift looks - make it fit well into the Fallout world. So yeah, thanks and see you on Patreon :)
