The only really weird thing is the cylinder. It looks like you took the cylinder from a Navy model black powered revolver and matted over it with a cut down cylinder from a Single Action Army? In most other respects, it's a pretty good technical design. But, especially if you're going with a cartage revolver, the cylinder doesn't seem to do anything other than leave the back open to fire a jet of hot gas at the wielder. If you replaced the cylinder you have now with a full sized one from, say, the Single Action Army I mentioned earlier you'd have something that would actually be pretty much technically correct.
I realize that it's not intended to be an entirely accurate weapon. But for a video game use, it could be a small change that'd be very useful for that extra little bit of veritas.
Otherwise, this is a very interesting design. It obviously draws inspiration from existing revolvers of the period, but it doesn't fall over that line into being just a Navy model with some parts glued on. You've got a good design that just has one part that's rather jarring to look at. If you fix that, you should have an awesome piece (aha).
I agree with what Savayan said,perhaps extending the cylinder so that it reaches the hammer and could maybe accept a larger caliber. How is the break operated,there doesn't seems to be a lever of release for the barrel and cylinder. Maybe adding a little lever just under the hinge to release it,or even that flashy grip could extend to the hinge and be pulled down to release it. Also i'm wondering what the ram rod is functional as.I know that when cartridges were introduced many black powder revolvers were converted but the ram rod was removed and replaced with a shell ejector. But over all i love the design of this revolver,it seems very post apocalyptic western (flashy and gritty.)
I like this a lot, studied it a bit. The detail is astonishing... I saw what was being talked about with the hammer and stuff. That's all well and fine and I actually didn't notice it. The only thing that stood out to me personally as odd, though, was the lip that folds back over the grip... Underneath and to the left (relative to the pic) of the hammer... Seems like that would limit the shooters movement of the gun, and probably be very uncomfortable xD
fun fact: they made cartridge conversions of older cap-and-ball revolvers shortly after self-contained cartridge became really popular.
just putting this out there take it or don't; but you could totally just redesign the hammer and lengthen the cylinder and it would not only fit the theme you seem to be going for, but also be easier to render and not look quite as incomprehensible to viewers.
another bit of advice: if you want to see lots of period weapons parts and such DixieGunworks.com has alot of pictures of the kits they sell.
Très beau design, le rendu est magnifique !! Seul bémol de mon point de vue est le baril qui me parait légèrement petit vis à vis de l'arme en elle même et des munitions mais ça reste une critique purement mécanique (déformation professionnel )
I really like it. Totally cool. I would think twice about the knuckle guard if you are thinking about this as a quick draw gun. Getting your fingers in there in a split second could potentially cause more issues then, say, getting shot in your pinky Totally cool though man. Love it!
Looks pretty cool. It convincing enough. I like the variety of shapes. The gold lining really pops it out. Though I do find the shell shaped hammer out of place. That part feels very organic and reminds me of sea-life and takes away some toughness about it. Other than that, it's pretty slick. Nice!
Actually as far as realism goes you aren't that far off. Normally you don't see finger guards on any handgun because they slow your draw. Cylinder isn't correct for a center fire (cartridge) gun. Basically all you need to do is make the front bit you have there extend all the way back to the hammer and make that pointy bit stuck to the hammer hit the center of a shell put in that cylinder and you're golden.
Welcome to the club of game designers that make far cooler revolvers than the real companies. I'd love to buy something that looked like this (minus the finger guard. Trigger guard stays, finger guard not a fan of).
