M41 Pulse Rifle by omegafactor90 M41 Pulse Rifle by omegafactor90
The famed M41 pulse Rifle as seen in the movie Aliens. The web site [link] had several variations other than the M41A1 seen in the movie, so I made those too.

On the viral marketing site for Weyland Yutani prior to the release of Prometheus, they had this pic hidden away which is now on the AVP wikia:

Did you know the M41 was made from the shell of a Thompson submachine

Surprised the hell out of me when I found out; I always thought it was based off of the H&K G12.

I see a light machine gun, a carbine, a designated marksman rifle, and the base line rifle wgrenade attachment. Very unique ideas, i'll admit, but most likely not practical.

Ahahahaha! The best one is the "Typewriter" Variant. What makes this so cool is that the prop M41 was built from the receiver and grip of the real Thompson SMG, and the grenade/shotgun was a SPAS.

With a 95-round magazine capacity of 10x24mm cartridges, you know it's a movie prop.:nod::XD:

The M41 is my favorite prop gun; the Auto 9 Custom from Robocop comes as a close second.;)

The Auto 9 Custom = awesomeness! Customized Beretta 93R with a large compensator and all sorts of decked-out custom parts, definitely!:nod:

You do that!:w00t:

This very good, I can't wait to use that weapon in Aliens Colonial Marines like it was used in AVP 1 and 2. Great job

One more thing the regular M41 Pulse Rifle from Aliens and Alien versus Predator has a maximum ammo capacity of 99 rounds.You still did a good job though.

Ahh... The Aliens was one of the first scifi films to use futuristic projectile weapons instead of "rayguns" depicted in previous scifi films. Those pulse rifles are actually some of the coolest scifi-weapons ever.

I'd like to make a suggestion for the "Chicago typewriter" variant. The Tommy Gun had both a drum and clip capability. Since you've got the clip, let's see the drum attached. The Sniper rifle looks like it would beat the Morita variant in the "other" bug hunt movie! The MG looks like a SAW compared to the M56. There's nothing wrong with the original classics, tho!
Nice Artwork, all in all!

Thanks. The movie prop was actually started from a tommy gun design, so that's where the likeness comes from. But honestly, from a non isometric perspective, a drum wouldn't look much different than the clip.

I was going to comment on that, nicely done - as the original prop was a combo Thompson and I think a SPAS-12 or another shotgun (or mix of 2?) it was very fitting and clever to go the Thomson style foregrip!

In my opinion, the Thompson-style foregrip and lack of an under-barrel grenade launcher make it look too much like a Thompson; it seems to lack the originality that made the movie prop so amazing.

true, but nothing wrong with a nod to the source.
Check out the United States Colonial Marines Technical Manual, came out in the 90s.
Awesome book from the creators. they don't mention as many mods for the M41 as all that, kind of pointless going that crazy as they have a proper sniper rifle, a squad assault weapon in the smart gun etc.

maybe you could put the drum from the SAW underneath the SMG?

Interesting idea. I was also thinking of taking the forward handgrip from the sniper rifle and puting it on the carbine/ SMG, to make it look LESS like a tommy gun.

How about putting the drum on the original and adding the scope? Maybe add an integral bipod to it, and BAM! One Man Arsenal!
