Quicksilver Industries: 'Sandcat' Assault Rifle by Shockwave9001 Quicksilver Industries: 'Sandcat' Assault Rifle by Shockwave9001
The Sandcat assault rifle is Quicksilver Industries' latest addition to the market. Firing the widely-used 5.45x39mm from a platform similar to the AK series, this baby will feel very familiar, but will outperform any modern AK.

Quicksilver Ind. produces top of the notch firearms made for easy and cheap mass production, while maintaining very high quality. Our firearms will always be fully ambidextrous, two toned, operator-friendly and accessory-friendly.

Credit to Deadly for the base of the rifle. Thanks man!
Credit to Lucky Striker for the barrel setup and flash hider.


Yours truly,
~ Shockwave

Very clean design. One point of constructive criticism though: The hand stop on the bottom rail is meant to do exactly what the name implies, and is typically mounted behind where the hand is going to be positioned. The rail guard and hand stop should be reversed.

Some people wouldn't agree on that. Some people like it so it stops the hand up front. Besides, it's an AK-like gun, most people would hold this at the magazine anyways.

In this case, I placed it there for the reason stated above, but also so you can place the bottom of the handguard (in front of the handstop) on an object (the inside of a window, or a wall in example) and then press the handstop against said object for stability. I believe Noveske's KX9 was designed for the same thing actually.

Fair enough, I stand corrected. Having fired an AK, it's just hard for me to imagine not having it the other way around to fight the violent recoil, but I've never used a hand stop on a rifle before. :P

Is that a balanced recoil system?

Thanks man, I wish they were too.
Most of the time I don't come up with an idea and work that out, but instead I play around with some preset parts and work from there if I like it.
It can take up from a day to a few months actually.
