Gavil Model 3861N Shettier by VulnePro Gavil Model 3861N Shettier by VulnePro
This eve we have another TKP weapon, this time a lever action carbine.

The Gavil Model 3861N: 3861 being the year and N designating the Nasik calender because there are several in use in SOL with the Nasik calender being one of the most popular (the true date is unknown).

The 3861N is a close quarters combat lever action carbine. The weapon still retains reasonable accuracy due to the use of HVS (High Velocity Shetts) ammo, which are like a SABOT style round. The cylinder below the barrel is a high output lighter (anti-sendai electro arc) adding further close quarters capability. It's a rather popular weapon with C.T.E.O.s and I.P.I.O. bounty hunters and detectives due to it's compact nature and ease of carry. The weapon packs a punch in close quarters so it's also popular with sendai gangs.

The weapon featured here has a blue finish with several color case hardened fittings (the parts that look similar to brass. They aren't, but rather, the color case hardening process which creates a rainbow to marbling effect). The stock (which was actually a cool collab contribution by :icongenocidalpenguin: he doodled a variation of the original blunderbuss-ish stock and foregrip I did and I liked it far more so it went in) is a simulated Catalin once again. The top rail can be for mounting scopes or sendai optic interface devices (sendai line of sight optic eye) The weapon has a small capacity 8 round clip but higher capacity clips can be obtained of course. The clips come with a capacity counter so ammo count can always be checked.

This one was fun to do as it clearly has a very "space cowboy" vibe and just badass bounty hunter heater going on. Naturally it was inspired by old 1800s lever action repeaters and just ended up very TKP once I did my thing. There's more stuff to come.

Stay tuned...

Digitaly inked pencils with colors in Photoshop CS3 Catalin and Cold Case hardening textures were hand painted by me.

Dude, I have not seen anyone properly do a sci-fi version of the old lever action rifle, TILL NOW. You made into Several of my favorites folders, I am in love. You win a watch from me specifically from this, and I may try to build a prop of this in the future for a film of mine.

Thank you for the kind words man, I appreciate it.

We're always honored when people make fan arts, 3D models, or fan kit bash builds of our works but using this in a film as a prop we'd prefer not to see. The weapon was designed for the Theos KE Polemos project and that is what it was intended for. It is our copyrighted design and part of is NOT free for use in other creative or commercial ventures. Brand confusion, even with short films or fan films is not something you want to see happening with your I.P., so no it may not be used as a prop in any film or project other than Theos KE Polemos.

Apologies if this comes off harsh but I hope you can understand. Thanks!

Big thanks Kai, cool you're diggin' on it's retro fancy pants action badassery... or something. I really got a kick outta working on this one but had the idea for lever action shettiers for some time. I just finally got round to doing one up and couldn't be happier with the vibe it evolved into. There will likely be more :)

Thanks for dropping by man, all that stuff you posted for the Planetside game, was badass as well (love that ergo-slab tacti-cool SMG, ace)!

Cheers!

Haha! Yeah.. what is a shettier btw? Google does not come up with anything. You mean like a shotgun?

Thanks re: Planetside :) That was one helluva ride I can tell you. Ergo-slab tacticool, haha, thanks :) That was the intent, a gun that would remind you of your mothers arms as you blew the enemy apart.

Shettiers are pretty much a Theos specific concoction. They are flechette based weaponry and in the setting the entomology of shettier is derived from flechette. So this weapon isn't really a shotgun it fires H.V.S. (high velocity shetts) that are typically SABOT in nature. Being one of the most dangerous potential criminal elements are sendai,with many being armored, something like an anti-tank SABOT style round grew more common to penetrate the armor rather than what we typically use with slugs now. Shotgun style rounds can be used though with various types of pellets or darts (SABOT shotgun rounds exist now actually). Most shett rounds are either a shell with an ignition gel encasing the SABOT or a hardened polymer gel for the shall itself. The weapons use a form of puncture needle (the firing pin) that sends an electric current into the gel to ignite it. A bit of fantastic but it seems conceivable enough for something this crazy far in the future. There's also a lot of mysterious tech lurking in TKP too but won't get into that now ;)

Welcome on the Planetside works! Ergoslab of awesome indeed XD Yeah coming up with this crazy shit can be a blast :) I have more shooty stuff and, well stuff pending post. Should be pretty active into the fall :) Keep rockin' the awesome Kai, always a pleasure seeing your works man.

Best!

sweet! I loved shotguns ever since I played Doom as a kid. Of the pump action variety, especially. Then I saw Terminator 2. And I fell in love with lever-actions... :| Years later as my interest in firearms grew I was taken by the power of the full auto... but eventually came back to shotguns and fell in love with their relative simplicity, elegance and caliber all over again. The versatility they provided, in that they could pack such a wide variety of creative/scalable munitions due to bore size was really something intriguing indeed.

Like you, I like mixing up the fantastic with the 'conceivable enough'. Haha :p One tiny nitpick if I may, though! "-Most shett rounds are either a shell with an ignition gel encasing the SABOT or a hardened polymer gel for the shall itself..."


I feel that the "ignition gel encasing the bullet" type would be another type of munition - Caseless, which is technically not a sabot. (But which i find damn cool nontheless).

Yeah lever action and shotguns can yield some pretty trippy fictional weapons when you're starting there as a basis. I so totally understand how you would find that a great inspiration for design. My interest in doing some lever actions comes from my love of the Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns. The man with no name, ultimate western badass (though Charles Bronson and baddie Henry Fonda in 'Once Upon a Time in the West' were utter badasses too). There's just something classic about the lone gunslinger with a lever action, very iconic.

I didn't explain it so well in my reply but you're right on the observations, that's what I had in mind, the hardened gel case rounds are caseless as the propellant gel case just burns away once fired so, yup caseless TKP weapons do exist and the hardened polymer gel would be it. The rounds that are using non gel casings (brass or composite materials) use another form of this gel as the ignition propellant as the same electric ignition process tends to be most common.

That said you could still have this type of caseless gel round (because the hardened gel case is still technically a case before firing) as a SABOT because a sabot is simply a sleeve-like device to allow a smaller bore projectile to navigate a larger smooth bore barrel (usually smooth bore such as the M1 Abrams tank though it can be used in rifled weapons as well). It's commonly the familiar flechette dart anti tank round that the term sabot is associated with even though that's not actually what a sabot is, the sabot is only the sleeve. There are actually loads of common firearm sabot "reloader" rounds to allow you to shoot smaller bore ammo in a larger bore weapon.

[link]

There were even wooden sabot collared musket rounds in the 1800s and this is where the concept originated and the term sabot (French) actually derived from the wooden clogs (shoes) worn in Europe. The common anti-sendai, and larger anti-FOIL, HVS rounds are, indeed, similar to Armour-piercing discarding sabot so they do use a form of casing to hold the sabot sleeve and round before firing.

[link]

There are totally variations and specialized rounds and even very much non shett type rounds as well (specialized shotgun type pellets of various types for example). Makes sense there would be a variety of types of munitions but shetts would be the most common due to sendai being a dangerous reality in this setting. TKP is pretty far in the future with some weird tech lurking in the shadows so I try to have fun with it. Indeed I'm totally fine with playing a dash of loose fantastic here but this stuff is too interesting not to try to make it somewhat believable as well.

I have a feeling you already know most of this info but, if not, there you go :) Pretty interesting stuff when you really dig into it and you always end up finding more as you dig. Great stuff, always fun to discuss and it tends to fire the imagination and inspiration in doing so :D Great hearing your inspirations there too on the shotguns and lever actions.

Best!

YES! To all of the above :) I have a personal favourite style though, which is frangible or expansive Hydro Shok style. Basically minimal collateral/ maximum target energy transfer. When I first learned of them it was one of those creatively curious moments, "omg, why didn't they explore that earlier with hollow points?" Perhaps they did to ineffective results back then, but they certainly mastered the physics now... :D

I am both sad and glad I live in a nation that makes firearm possession illegal. :iconlegato895: was just showing off his Keltec KSG to me the other day.. he married a lady whose dad owns a firing range or something in Canada...

Yeah, those Hydro Shok rounds are kinda nasty too and you're right, mull enough on this stuff and all kinds of ideas can crop up. I hear you on gun legality, it's a double edged sword. Clearly I live in a nation where there's waaay too many guns but, honestly, making them illegal at this point wouldn't fix things, you'd have to warp every gun off the plaent. Criminals don't care about laws unfortunately and they get them anyway. On the other hand if they were banned crime of passion situations might indeed drop dramatically as average citizens wouldn't go out of their way (black market) to shoot someone on impulse. In a perfect world we wouldn't need the damn things but humanity, being what it is, is stuck with them for now.

I have a healthy respect for firearms and have fired them but they are what they are. Damn fun to draw them though, just posted a new one tonight :) Though I had already put a watch on :iconlegato895: (did now) he has some cool stuff in his gallery.

Cheers!

I wouldn't recommend you do that either, think of it more like a sawed off shotgun you'd shoot from the hip or hold it up to your line of sight but never put to your shoulder. You'd often see them shooting lever action rifles from the hip in the classic westerns anyway, it's kinda an iconic imagery. The stock was inspired by a mix of old blunderbuss pistols and compact sawed off shotguns.

Thanks!

The lever action of this makes it feel very wild-west, also the fact that it is favored by "lone operative" type 'law enforcement', and gangs adds to this feel. The rail on the top gives it also a very modern small-arms feel, which further lends to the "lone gunman" feel. I could very much see these being used side-by-side with some of your other retro-style firearms, perhaps with various weapons being favored in certain environments/provinces, where terrain and city structure favor perhaps a more mid-range approach to offense/defense, versus inner city type places where long range is more/less out of the question, and where it might be best to keep your weapon concealed.
This very much feels like the sort of gun you'd carry if you wanted people around you to know that you are packing heat, and mean to use it. (hence, i suppose, it being favored by gangs and bounty-hunters)

haha all of this was written before I read the last few lines of text.... so, in short, 'what you said'...

your understanding of weapon structure is very great, and (as i have said before) the lines speak to inspiration, without being directly taken from any specific firearm. Very nice work!

still, great work as always!
