JUST A NOTE, GUYS
I'm really thankful that all of you want to fave this, I'm really thankful for the support.
Just letting you know, there is actually a later version of this image, which includes the SR-3 DMR and the CS-3 Combat Shotgun mods, despite this being labelled 'final'. As such, it's been renamed to 'penultimate', and the 'extended' family (Featured Deviation on my page) is in fact the latest and final version, before a slightly modified version comes along at some point in the Mod 4 variant.
SA-AR-1 "Doberman" Mod 3 Battle rifle family. Consists of a 14.5" barrel carbine (Carbine SuperShort; top pair), 21" standard rifle (Battle Rifle; middle pair) and a 30" HBAR (Medium Automatic Rifle; bottom pair).
The rifle is chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO-standard battle rifle cartridge, and is based upon a series of rifles, including a whole raft of technical features from the FN FAL; plus aesthetic cues from the CR-21, the A-91, AK-12, the SA80 L86 LSW and my own SA-AR-3 rifle family.
The magazines come in two variants - 36 rounds and 72 rounds. The CSS and BR are shown with the 36 round magazine equipped, and the MAR with the 72 round variant. Both magazine types are of the Casket style, massively reducing their vertical height, and are aesthetically based upon the Magpul PMAG.
The system uses the long-stroke gas piston method of operation, and uses an FAL receiver and bolt modified to accept a long-stroke piston acting upon it.
The weapon body is made of a lightweight polymer, encasing the metal receiver. This makes the weapon much more comfortable to handle in the cold climes of the Samozniy nation.
The top two rifles (CSS, BR) feature the RIS handguard and the Magpul PDR based foregrip module; the MAR is depicted with a modified version of the 'standard' handguard, and the foregrip module, both with barrel supports for the HBAR integrated into the modules. All three kinds of handguard feature side rails for mounting torches, lasers and other equipment - the RIS features a lower surface for mounting equipment such as grenade launchers, or shotguns and also bipods on the BR/CSS variants. Foregrips can also be mounted, and the RIS handguard can be modified to accept the HBAR barrel support. The top rail along the sight line is capable of accepting almost any kind of electronic sight, scope or FCS module. The iron sights are typically set up for 300m, and are folding, intended only as backup sights for when an electronic sight has not been issued. The rear sight can be adjusted in 100m increments from 200 to 600m.
All four rail surfaces (when the RIS is equipped) are of the Mil-STD-1913 Picatinny standard.
The fire selector is based upon that of the AK-12, sited just above the pistol grip, and selects between one single shot, three round burst and fully-automatic fire modes. The safety is ahead of the fire selector, and is a push-button type. Pushing it in from the right will engage the safety, which acts upon the sear - pushing the button back through from the left of the rifle will disengage the safety.
The rifle is charged in the same manner as the Russian A-91
carbine, with a reciprocating jacket around the gas tube and ambidextrous charging handles on both sides.
I think this rifle has now finally been completed - I have no intentions of this time to colour it.
Edit: Updated the image to include the new sights family. The image is basically the "family w/ sights" image.
