IWS System by cityofthesouth IWS System by cityofthesouth
So the purpose of this is to illustrate the 90% solution. It requires an intermediate cartridge like the 5.56 or 6.8SPC firstly (a cartridge designed for 16-20 inch barrels), and it's pictured with a standard AR magazine, two components our current military could continue using more effectively from a bullpup design like this.
-Secondly, the fuzzy shadow in the background is of a collapsed stock M4 Carbine as close to correct size as I could manage, showing that even with the 20inch barrel or the suppressed 16 inch (top image), this design is still as compact as the M4.
-Third, I changed it to incorporate user configurable rails on 3, 6 and 9:00 positions.
-The bottom image is of my Designated Marksmen Rifle (DMR) version. Rather than lego systems or common receiver systems, this requires only a barrel and optic change, both of which can be done in seconds by the user. Rails could be bolted to the bottom and a bipod could be stuck on too to round out the role.

I used photographic elements in this and that scope is like 4 grand which is nothing more than overpriced tacticool BS (though the ACOG is plenty pricey). But, a scope that offers something like 1 or 2 to 8 power magnification really does sound ideal for the DMR. That said, a good ole fashion scope and offset irons or dot sight would work just as well.

And the Inspiration must go to the Steyr AUG. =P

No it was not inspired by the AUG. It is an AUG with improvements. This was fully outlined in the other images of this project.

AUG with ACR? Thats what it looks like =P
Either way it looks fantastic. You've put it together very very well.

yeah in a way. It's really just all AUG with improvements. I posted a couple other drawings featuring this gun that really go into detail about what it is and how it works.

Tsar Bomba thermonuclear weapon. There, I said mine's bigger, can we go home now?

Thanks! I'm ok with the Grendel but I think the 6.8 offers more for this Infantry Weapon System role and is currently better developed. The odd case dimensions of the Grendel also offer challenges with belt feeding and things of that nature. There are a couple other submissions of this gun in my gallery that detail the role and concept if you're interested. You may have already seen them, but the top image is of the 16inch barrel version which would be standard issue. Even with a long suppressor it's roughly the size of the M4 and without it, much more compact.

I'll check it out. I'm aware of the Grendel's odd shape and lower power, but it's shorter then the SPC and quieter, hence perfect for a compact SOPMOD Carbine.

If someone was like, yeah we want to make your gun but in 6.5 Grendel, I'd be down for that.
