ARS-556 Commander by GrimReaper64 ARS-556 Commander by GrimReaper64

A variant of the ARS (Assault Rifle Sidearm) platform, developed for GR's commanding officers.

I'll let the picture explain the rest.

Here's the gun only, if you want.…

Great detail and fantastic shape and design.I'm really digging this.I really like the thought put into the function although I think some things are a tad too complicated and or redundant.Case in point,a double action semi automatic hand gun is only double action on the first firing unless the hammer is pulled first.After the first shot the slide re-cocks the hammer and makes the weapon essentially single action for each consecutive shot.Persdonally I think the button should be a de-cocker only and the weapon should be striker fired ( single action ) or double action ( hammer fired ),not both.The ridges for the upper rail should be higher since it looks like they won't function as is,remember that a channel can be cut down the middle of any rail system so having them high enough won't block your sights.integrated guide lasers are awesome.The integrated forgrip is very well designed,it's out of the way and flush with the weapon.I would extend the grip and surface area above the trigger to allow you to add a slide release or some visual way to break down the weapon.I would also extend the rear of the magazines base plate to be flush with the back of the grip.I'm not trying to nit pick and say that your design is bad,I'm just talking one gun nut to another and be as specific as I can.And again fantastic work.

(continuing from last comment)

Besides, in the time it was manufactured, 2034, technology permits me to implement specific features to this gun.

(No offence intended, though.)

maybe a longer description with the year and why certain features exist like the hammer selector for the tranq darts you mentioned would help people better understand why it exists..I didn't mean to say that the sights wouldn't work like they are designed now on the weapon,what I meant was that the upper rail looks too shallow and maybe the notches on it could be a bit taller.While typing I had forgotten that the mag was extended in the image,sorry.

It's fine.

To answer your design standpoint issues...

1) There is a channel cut through on the rail systems. Otherwise, it would defeat the purpose of having iron sights.

2) The reason I implemented a DA/SA switcher is to accommodate the use of subsonic 5.56mm tranquilizer ammo made by GR. By switching it to single action, it will greatly reduce the noise generated when equipped with a suppressor. (Think of this SA mode as the Mk. 22 in MGS3.)

3) There are regular (22-round) and government-restriction (10-round) compliant magazines designed for this gun and its other models which fit very snuggly in the grip. (Like the FNH Five-seven.)

As for the other issues, I will keep that in mind for future models.

Forgot to mention that it is also ambidextrous.
