MBR-13 Revamp, Mod. 5 PDW by ScrewfaceRomeo MBR-13 Revamp, Mod. 5 PDW by ScrewfaceRomeo
PDW MBR-13, shorter than an MP5, with a longer barrel than an M4A1 - god I love bullpups... Chambered in delicious 7mm optimum rounds, as per usual

nice design!
it would be nice if you convert it to 6x30mm Valkyrie and market it as an PDW, to military and Law Enforcement Forces (it would be akin to the "Peacemaker" of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2)

Is that a CoD caliber? Because I stopped playing CoD after the "AK-74U" tragedy.

Any paticular reason for the 7mm?

I'm glad you asked. You see, 7mm is the optimum diameter for rifle cartridges. 7mm rounds give a 20% advantage in ballistic performance for any given level of recoil over 7.62mm rounds, because they have a far superior ballistic coefficient. And they can retain their energy at much longer ranges than 6.5 or 5.something rounds, while also delivering more kinetic energy to the target at any range. For example, the 7x43mm .280 British retained more energy and penetrating ability at range than 7.62x51mm NATO, and was also more accurate and had a flatter trajectory.

So bottom line, 7 mil beats out 7.62, 5.56, and other more exotic ammo because it can retain its energy in flight while loosing it when it hits the target? Does this carry over to different ammo types within the 7mm family(hollow point, jacketed, etc.)? Also, what is the source of this information, if you don't mind me asking?

Thank you so much for your prompt response. I greatly appreciate your input and explanation.

Basically, yes. What it boils down to is that 7mm diameters will bring one closer to a Sears-Haak body than 7.62 or above, while retaining more energy than smaller rounds. Yes. It's a function of the dimensions of the bullet, not the composition thereof. Sources are varied, but here's a few; [link], [link] (data on the .280 British) and the Wiki page for .280 British will offer some interesting info as well. A lot of it is actually just math done with ballistics calculators though.

This is the Russian opposite. Korobov TKB-022 assault rifle. except in a larger caliber, of coarse.

It was a design with the same design goals, and for all we know, the TKB-022 experimental assault rifle worked well. Just thought you might find the weapon interesting, that's all.

And that's a lot of Magpul stuff. Seems like a good thing.

Can't top Magpul for AR-15 gear, IMO, and the MBR platform is designed to mimic AR-15 ergonomics as close as possible.

Now I'm sure you're headed to the right direction.


One question: is that rail in the back placed for monopods and such?

ARs have the best handling of any rifle I've ever used. But I don't like direct impingement, and I do like bullpups. So I made a variable caliber, variable gas system bullpup with the same controls, mounting gear, barrel placement and stock length as an M16A4 that accepts most aftermarket AR accessories. You can even mount the Magpul MilSpec. buttpads on it.

If you'll kindly direct your eyes here: [link] I belive you will find that the answer is yes

looks very cool, I like the magazine and overall layout, though the ejection port shield is not my thing but thats a matter of opinion. Have you tried the gradient tool yet or are you finding your current method of shading/lighting to be more preferrable. It definately has a stylized look to it, so dont take it as me knocking it down.

I use the shield because ambidextrious. As for gradients, I've never been able to figure out how to make that damn tool work the way I want it to.

MP5 with a fixed stock, or with the stock extended, is about 5 inches longer.
