Introduction: Masterdude Top Loading Rifle

Picture of Masterdude Top Loading Rifle

Made this a while back, mainly as a sort of demontration project, to show that a toploading gun can be made based on my semi-auto mech. The mag is removable, it comes with the standard safety and has the under-barrel rails for my standard gear. I will not be posting an I'ble so if you want to make it you'll have to make do with these images.

No problem.

just an edit on my last comment-
it probably is more reliable with a top loading rifle, but would be more efficient with
size if the mag was underneath. if for a newer model you could have the mag sideways, on the stock, then that would be great :D

I don't know about more reliable but it is much less comfortable with no sights and the weight distribution is odd. I like bullpup and might make a couple new guns with bullpup. As for sideways mag I don't know how I would make something like that with a mech like this. One way or another it would be another proof of concept prototype with no real use.

i think that the looks and practicality are at fault on this one.
sorry, but it doesnt seem to look good at all.

Yeah, I don't like the looks or the bulk either which is why I didn't bother making proper instructions, nor do I plan on making any new toploading models.

Great photos. really clear identifying the pieces. Looking forward to seeing the full project where you show how these come together.

Thanks for the complements but I will not be doing a build I'ble for this gun, at least not with this model.
