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!
