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