3. A wide barrel that enables multible shots to be fired like a shotgun.

    It doesn't look very pratical nor does look like it was made to actually be good at shooting things but it's an interesting concept as the mech is a bit of a prototype (there hasn't actually been a good lever action rifle made) but after a lot of tweaking it could be good...

    Well...Kind of. Lever actions actually take part in loading the round from a tube mag and that one is just tied to a ram gun. So it's kind of meh.

    The part of this gun that needed to be the most sturdy is really weak. I would make the stock A LOT more sturdy, then put the lever on top of the gun instead,

    I am not liking the position of the lever in this gun; nor exactly the looks of the gun either. Good try though.
