M12A1 Infantry Combat Rifle (Old, Gen-3) by SomeNavySEALs M12A1 Infantry Combat Rifle (Old, Gen-3) by SomeNavySEALs
Stop faving this old shit If you like the ICR, go here fave and comment.

:iconcommentplz:I'd say "thanks for the faves" if they didn't piss me off, but alas I hate getting a pile of faves and no comments. FAVES DO NOT HELP.

Just note with a detailed description, sketch, or link to a weapon that needs shoopin'.

"Shock troop, devil dog, blood sucking war machine."

Developed by Greyson Arms to fill a standing requirement by the United States Marines Joint Munitions and Lethality Contracting Center for a high accuracy, low recoil battle rifle. For years the Marine Corps had been experimenting with a vast number of assault rifles and battle rifles, leading to a logistical nightmare with a massive range of weapons and cartridges being used throughout the Corps. The M12 ICR filled the need for a powerful, well rounded interim weapon and was adopted the first fiscal quarter 500. In 523 the -A1 series fixed several minor design flaws, improved ergonomics, slightly reduced production costs, added chrome to several components in the mechanism, and a stellite coating to the barrel. No requirements have been posted for replacement as of the last fiscal quarter 559. The manufacturer states the weapon is designed to be comfortable for both human and nakanii shooters, however this claim is disputed by both.

The ICR ushered in a revival of old-school weapon design, featuring all manual workings, RIS systems, and no electronic components, IFF, user recognition, or inhibitors. The rugged utilitarian design, high accuracy, and stopping power has made it a favorite with Marines as a standard issue weapon and with every other branch and several police agencies as a marksman rifle. It's unique firing system has also been used as the base for several other weapons and has proven difficult for other companies to reproduce without directly copying it.

The 7.5x50-US HV (or +P+ overpressure) is an advanced derivative of the 7.62 NATO utilizing a high pressure gas propellant generating much higher expansion pressure. Standard weapons designed to fire the 7.5mm/.306 WAC can be damaged or destroyed by the extreme pressure generated by mil-spec 7.5USHV.

Quad rail standard RIS.
Collapsing bolt firing system.
Sturdy alloy and composite construction.
Rubberized grips.
Chrome lined chamber and stellite lined 23inch tight-spin barrel.
Thick carbon rubber butt pad with honeycomb cavities.

The rail mounts accept all standard RIS attachments.
AHOG Advanced Holographic Optical Gunsight
A variable zoom holographic sight able to to change magnification levels in combat without having to be re-zeroed.
ATAM Advanced Target Acquisition Module
A battle net linked stabilized gun camera with visible(RBG), IR, and UV spectrum lasers(adjustable beam) for aiming, target marking, range finding, and "dazzling".

Cartridge: 7.5x50 US +P+

That looks battle worn and tested. Like something that's seen hell and back. Great weapon.

:iconfacehoofplz: It's also two years old and in my junk pile for being an old, lazy PMG weapon from before I knew what I was doing :/

Yeah I just came across it randomly browsing. Didn't see the junk thing till after. But hey considering my art skills involve two anorexic stick figures. It's far better than anything I could make.

Beautifully done. Good work. This deserves my favorite.

Er... Please don't.
This is nearly two years old and this design has been updated significantly since then.
The new M12-A1 can be found here and two other versions can be found here .

This particular image is in my "Old crap" folder with the message "Seriously, don't fave this old crap." and the description says not to fave it and provides a link to the new version...
