Revolver de exportacao .458 SOCOM by caiobrazil Revolver de exportacao .458 SOCOM by caiobrazil
IMPORTANT: click image twice to visualize fully.

so, this started when i was showing my pistol-in-a-case ( fav.me/d6mcfib ) at the MMW thread in Nationstates, and ~DerVulf :icondervulf: (AKA Ulfr, AKA Kohrnatenreich, AKA whatever other Alt he has) challenged me ( forum.nationstates.net/viewtop… ) to make a Nagant-derived revolver chambered for .458 SOCOM, with a spire tip instead of a round bullet. well, i accepted the challenge, though a bit late, and i decided to do this.

at first, i thought chambering a round for .458 SOCOM would be impossible as it is an unrimmed cartridge. however, i noticed later the "neck" of the case provided headspacing. nevertheless, i still made my own round, basically a rimmed .458 SOCOM, named .458 USBN Rimmed. please note everything was done by eye, so there may be some fails in the dimensions. of course, the revolver can still fire your average .458 SOCOM rounds.

yeah, i know, it would have some helluva recoil. but it is no surprise given the idea came from Ulfr. (AKA DerVulf, AKA Kohrnatenreich, AKA whatever other Alt he has)

........................................................................................................

in 2010, USBN Defense Systems was looking for new civilian markets. some market somewhat unexplored by other weapon manufacturing corporations. being completely state-owned, USBN defense systems couldn't sell weapons to countries with a bad relationship with the USBN. the sales department were racking their brains trying to think of a new market.
that's when they noticed a remote area, whose countries were somewhat isolated from the world, could be a good market. USBN Defense Systems settled their eyes on Ulfheim, a somewhat isolated region, but with lots of military power. this was a golden chance for USBN DS; not only could they manufacture weapons and profit with their sales, but this could also contribute to a forming of diplomatic relations between the USBN and Ulfheim countries.
one particular nation, the Ulfr-Reich, was well known for their stronger-than-usual people, and as such much-higher-caliber-than-usual weapons. when the group of engineers started to discuss what sort of product could they make, one of the engineers said: "it's impossible! .50 BMG is the sort of cartridge they would use for a PDW!", much for the amusement of the other engineers working on the project.
that's when a Norwegian big-game hunter who lived around these areas requested a revolver chambered for .458 SOCOM but with a twist: spire-point rounds.
USBN DS employees saw great opportunities in this. not only they could make a single revolver for that man, they could also achieve their goal of making an export model.
the result was the Revólver De Exportação, .458 (Export Revolver, .458), better known as the RDE-458. it can fire .458 SOCOM rounds, however is more commonly used with special, rimmed rounds, the .458 USBN R (Rimmed) cartridges. these are basically a rimmed .458 SOCOM. thoguh the neck of the .458 SOCOM provides headspacing, it is safer to fire .458 USBN R cartridges due to their rimmed nature. these cartridges also usually come with longer bullets than your average .458 SOCOM rounds, because after all, they weren't made to fit in a STANAG magazine. these different rounds include, but are not limited to:

-spire-point rounds, as mentioned in the request, wich are basically a spitzer with a less curved nature and a "soft tip";
-FMJ spitzer rounds;
-rounded, lead Hollow Point rounds; (made for civilian use)
-"flat-nose", semi-jacketed, hollow point rounds (for civilian use)
-rounded, FMJ heavy hunting rounds.

these rounds were said to have recoil similar to the .500 S&W magnum, some loads having slightly stronger recoil. when using spitzer and spire-point rounds, which have a higher ballistic coefficient (it's more-or-less aerodynamics), the weapon is surprisingly accurate and have shown good penetration.

the revolver was somewhat inspired by the Nagant revolver; a similar mechanism was used to reduce loss of high-pressure gasses, resulting in higher muzzle velocity and better power. it is not completely sealed due to the lack of a proper round, though.
the revolver is a double-action one. to handle the pressures of the .458 SOCOM/.458 USBN R rounds, the cylinder is tick and has capacity for only 4 rounds. the frame needed to be strong, and as such an integral frame was chosen. as such, the weapon must be loaded one round per time through a loading gate, similar to the Nagant revolver and the Colt SAA. the rounds are ejected also one per time through a manually operated extracting rod, which goes back into its place after ejecting the cartrigde via spring pressure.
though the integral frame has the disvantage of laborious and time-consuming one-round-per-time reloads, it has a big advantage of making the weapon a sturdy, reliable and strong weapon. it has been said that it can be disassembled and reassembled by a child, and is so strong that if the cylinder ever jammed (very uncommon and has probably never happened), you could fix it by giving it a whack with a sledgehammer.

the revolver is made with a special alloy of stainless steel and titanium. it is then given an anti-corrosion, matte black finish. the grip is commonly made of high-quality wood. however, some special editions feature a nickel-plated finish and a simulated ivory grip.

the weapon comes in a case. said case is made of wood with a stainless steel "skeleton" for better sturdiness. some parts, such as the locks and the handle, are brass-plated. the internal part is made of the same black foam you find in most gun cases, however it is covered and lined with red felt for better looks. it comes with the revolver itself, 7 spire-point .458 USBN R rounds and 6 hollow point .458 USBN R rounds.

in an attempt to boost sales, when one purchases the revolver he/she will gets a .458 USBN R ammunition case for free. said case is made of aluminum, and the internal part is black foam. it comes with 14 spire point rounds, 7 FMJ rounds, 7 FMJ spitzer rounds, 7 semi-jacketed hollow point rounds and 7 hollow point rounds, with a total of 42 rounds.

despite having been designed for big-game hunters and exports to Uflheim, it has become popular among USBN citizens as well, thanks to its recoil being roughly the same as .500 S&W.

when he noticed he could fire the weapon himself, the same engineer that had said before ".50 BMG is the sort of thing they'd use for PDWs" tried a new joke: "congratulations. we just made their version of the .22 LR.", again much for the amusement of the other engineers and designers.

it is said that the big-game hunter the first weapon was given to took off the wooden grips and made his own with ivory from an elephant he brought down with this weapon.

Should come with a warning: "Not recommended shoot all the bullets sequentially Well this may cause desgradaveis experiences, such as losing the own arm while shooting, falling off a precipice among others.".
  Awesome weapon man,
you are getting better with it.

it comes with it. it is written in very very small letters, below the felt-lined foam. so you would have to take off the foam and read it with a magnifying glass. but it is there.
just joking. thanks man!

Well, makes me remember of the S&W .500 from Resident Evil 4-5 and 6, and Neros double barrel Model 500 from DMC4
Just badass!
The receiver looks like the Taurus Judge, which I love
Badass Revolver fo Export man!
Although something more than a .44 Magnum is just exagerated to me. For pistols
Also, if you like Age of Empires 3, theres a mod called WOTA, War of the Triple Alliance
A badass mod with Argentina, Uruguay, Brasil and Paraguay YAY!

well, it has recoil quite similar to .500 S&W. it seems bigger because the cylinder is thinner (thus resulting in less rounds in the cylinder) than most .500 S&W revolvers. also, combine it with that "spitzer" round and you get a pretty long round, which gives the cylinder a long appearance, resulting i that Taurus Judge look.
never played AoG. the mod is about the war of paraguay? well, to be frank i'd rather see an united south america. actually that's kinda like what i did with my fictional country, the USBN. anyways, the mod must be EPIC!
never researched much into the war of paraguay though, i prefer to focus in more modern combats (wwI-ahead) and frankly the war of paraguay is kinda like a dark stain in the history of brazil and south america, a war caused because all countries were jealous of Paraguay that was a rich and happy country. hell, they had even built a nationwide telegram system.

what do you mean by over-the-top? higher-caliber-than-usual badass firearms? if so, i already have some ideas for such kinds of weapons. hopefully i will bring them into lineart shall i find enough time to do so.

man, an M1 garand in a guitar case. sounds like something a mafia-hired marksman would do. and i have also seen a picture of a prohibition-era thompson SMG in a violin case, complete with detached stock, front grip, spare drum magazine and box magazine. this one is work of the mafia indeed.

yeah, if you hit someone with this, it won't b his lucky day.
let's just say this has comparable recoil and muzzle energy with .500 S&W, but the "spitzer" shape of some rounds means you lose less force with distance and that you have more screw-body-armor potential.
and .500 S&W has more muzzle energy than a 7.62x51mm NATO round.
so you have a device more powerful than a battle rifle in your hands.
