M40 PDW by SomeNavySEALs M40 PDW by SomeNavySEALs
3,000 pageviews X_^ it's not a lot, I know, but it's way more than I ever expected.

I know it's been a long ass time since I've uploaded anything but I've had some stuff and things going on.

Just note with a detailed description, sketch, or a link to a weapon that needs shoopin'.
No preset/existing weapons.

The M40 is an intermediate weapon between a “PDW” and submachine gun. Designed for vehicle crews, special forces, snipers, and security personnel it supplements the M5 carbine and is preferred by those who want something less conspicuous than a full size rifle. It is chambered in the 10.3x30 Auto Magnum/.40/30, a variation of the 10.3x40 carbine magnum designed to fit in a grip mag. The intergraded muzzle break prevents it from accepting a sound suppressor, but it does make the heavy cartridge controllable in automatic fire. The stock is spring loaded and the sling mounting point allows the weapon to be folded while on the sling and unfolded by pushing the weapon away from the user or pressing the release. The low profile iron sights use tritium-fiber optic glow rods and can be easily used in low light conditions.

Slowly gettin' there, I just had the new lens put in a few days ago and I'm starting to see better but it's gonna be wonky for about the next month 'til it finishes healing and stabilizes. So however it works out I'll either get stuck with birth control glasses in the Corps or I'll have to look for something else to do, might even get to interview with some ex-CIA guys to see if there's a place for me there.

And I'm sorry I never replied to your earlier post, things kinda came up.

Hey, it could be worse -- though I can't exactly think how just this moment!

Its alright about the previous reply -- you had a lot of stuff happening. It called life.

Take care!

I am loving this design.I like the thought put into the description and the weapon as well.I don't think any pistol caliber can supplement a rifle or carbine short of the 5.7 FN but in CQC and light gear situations this would be perfect.I think the sights are a bit too low but for aesthetic reasons I can see why you did it and it dose look very good.The two tone and that lower are my favorite part.I love a good PDW and this definitely delivers.

I really appreciate well thought out comments like this X_^

I'd have to agree on the rounds, and originally a wanted to do a .40 cal by 40mm overpreassure carbine cartridge but then it wouldn't fit in the handle, though it still has a case longer than the .44 magnum. As for the sights, I just couldn;t get rail mounted irons to fit the rest of the gun :/

I know what you mean about the sights,I've done a few weapons where I had to settle on some and any other ones on your weapon would just throw off the whole look.
