Thanks, Eswube! Merci, Cplnew!
I found the picture of a belgian FN49 with a "as new" condition, and its heavily paved appeareance was very appealing… that was the reason of the rather dark color ;). But in the argentinian model, the paved is faded, and the color is lighter:

Cheers, and once again, thanks for the feedback!

Good evening.
A tiny handgun, chambered for the also tiny .25 ACP cartridge: the German Lignose Einhand.
[ img ]
The gun was intended as a vest or pocket gun for the civilian market. Built in Germany by Lignose it was designed by Witold Chylewski, and it was a simple blowback operated pistol. The name (Einhand or "one-hand") is because it was feasible to cock the pistol pulling the tigger-guard with the finger . Cheers.

Heya Guys!

First of all, very great job reytuerto! Keep it up!

I have drawn an AK-12, the successor to the AK-74M for the Russian Army. Pretty much a Kalashnikov-pattern assault rifle with some modernisation, namely the telescoping stock and the railing systems. This particular drawing is based on the excellent AK-74M drawn by Alex and Caddaric79. If there is anything wrong, please do correct me!

Thank you!

Good evening, gentlemen!
A spanish pistol of WWI era: Gabilondo and Urresti Ruby.
[ img ]
Based in a previous spanish design Esperanza y Unceta Victory, which was itself a version of the Browning Model 1903. It was a rather compact (17 cms long, or slightly less; but some were a little longer: the length varies from 16.5 to 18 cms) blowback pistol chambered for the 7,65x17 (.32 ACP) cartridge, with a 9 round magazine.

In 1915, Gabilondo presented the pistol to the french military, and it was accepted for service as Pistolet Automatique de 7.65 mm genre "Ruby". The pistol made by Gabilondo y Urresti (later LLama) was well made, and well finished, but this basque factory was very little (less than 10 employees), so the french contract of 10,000 pistols per month (later 30,000 and even 50,000 handguns monthly!!!) quickly overhelmed the production line, and they were forced to sub-contract 4 basque factories. Later in the war, the french goverment contract directly with other spanish gun-makers, and the quality dropped subsequently. In conclusion, more than 40 gun-makers (mainly in the Basque Country) made the astonishing amount of more than a million pistols! But many of them were so different that were inable to share magazines! In french service it was used by machine-gun gunners, drivers and second line troops, but was also privately bought by line infantrymen as last resource weapon in trench warfare. Here are shown only 3 different versions of the Ruby pistol, but the variations in dimensions, finish, grips, cocking grooves, triggers, etc are countless.

After the war, Gabilondo perfected the gun (even some were made as full automatic weapons), and a pistol with a 22 round magazine was commerced as the Ruby Plus Ultra, and was well sold in China and Japan (I think that the pistol in the well known photograph of a kamikaze pilot tying an hachimaki to his head, is a Plus Ultra). Cheers.

Thanks, B! Your comments are a very important feedback!
The next entry is the first autoloading pistol adopted by a major power: the austro-hungarian Roth-Styer M1907.
[ img ]
It was a sturdy handgun with a complex locked breech, and a heavy trigger pull as safe mechanism for mounted troops (as heavy as a DA only revolver) . It was chambered for the 8 mm Roth-Styer cartridge. The pistol was fed by a top loaded 10 round clip. It was used in WWI by the KuK cavalry, and after the war by Hungary, Poland, Yugoslavia and Italy. Cheers.

Hello!

Very great job Reytuerto! Keep it up!

This entry would be focused on battle rifles, specifically the M14E2 and the AR-10.

[ img ]

The M14E2 was to the M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle of the M14, i.e: a viable light machine gun from a battle rifle. It can be distinguish for its stock, pistol grip and a rather strange flip-down forward grip. This particular drawing lacks the M2 Bipod.

[ img ]

The AR-10 is battle rifle designed by Armalite and would be in turn be the basis for the much more famous AR-15. This particular drawing is an early model, with a charging handle looking like a trigger in the middle of the carry handle.

If there is any errors, then please do tell me! Especially in regard with the AR-10 as it is a very early drawing of mine.

Thank You!
