Daemon Slayer by tbolt Daemon Slayer by tbolt
I was originally going to make this a scrap, but it came out halfway decent, so here it is...

Story:

Some ideas just fade into history, some to be forgotten, and some to be reborn in unusual circumstance.

When Roth was thrust into the war against the cultists, his initial action was not as a soldier for the Coalition, but as a private citizen. He saved the life of a prominent Salamander weaponsmaster. Out of gratitude, the Salamander offered to create Roth his own personal sidearm. This is the result of that venture.

A .50 caliber (12.7mm) revolver based on an ancient design from Earth called the Schofield. It is unique in that the front half of the firearm tips down to eject all spent shells simultaneously, as well as permitting immediate loading of the cylinder.

The heavy caliber is capable of firing depleted uranium saboted rounds to incredible speed, capable of penetrating lightly armored targets.

In addition, special cartridges may be used to take down Lesser Daemons. Hence the name of the gun. However, these rounds are exetemely difficult to make, and very expensive to come by.

Hehe, my technical knowledge of guns is not very good compared to most....I tend to just grab every gun I see and blow stuff up. ^^;;

But I must say, it's a pretty gun, and nicely drawn. looks comfortable to hold.

Thank you very much! =^^=

I took the aesthetics from some of my favirite firearms and combined them into this:

The muzzle brake of the S&W 500 magnum

The color and beefiness of the Ruger Super Redhawk in hunter grey.

The grip style of a Taurus Raging Bull

and the Top break action of the Schofield revolver =^^=

I love top-break revolvers, they are quite rare, even the modern-made ones (And those are horrifically expensive!) [link]

Thanks for the fav! =^^=

Neat work on this.
Though do wonder if once you open the gun to reload, do the shells come out from the front of the gun or do you have to tilt the gun back to remove the empty shells and reload like any other revolver?

I based the gun off the old Smith&Wesson Schofield revolver here: [link] (This is the Beretta modern reproduction of the gun)

The gun was designed to be used by troops mounted on horses, where single-handed operation was greatly appreciated.

Breaking open the gun causes a star shaped extractor in the middle of the cylinder to push out all of the cartridges at the same time. In my picture, see the little "T" protruding from the back of the cylinder? That ejects all the empties. Once the front half of the gun goes full forward, that "T" snaps back into the cylinder so fresh cartridges may be easily inserted.

With a little practice, a calvaryman could eject his empties, load the pistol and snap it to the ready within seconds, all while holding the reins of his horse! It is a really cool gun! =^^=

Ah nice, so you still do have to tilt the barrel back to make the casings fall out.

Well, once the ejector extends past the length of the casing, they just fall away (which is right at the point that it is designed to snap back in place =^^= ) The ejector is star shaped, so it only grabs hold of about 1/3rd of the rim of the casing.
