More Firearm Designs From Technostudio Engineering

Our post about Technostudio’s CAD/Cam renderings of their wild firearms designs caught widespread attention. I’ll remind everyone now that those guns, along with the ones pictured here, are equivalent to car makers releasing glossy graphics for futuristic concept vehicles. However, the Technostudio Engineering leadership is pushing full steam ahead, looking for both funding and prospective customers.

The Gecko pictured below is an integrally suppressed pistol that Technostudio Engineering hopes to be able to retail for $250. Obviously details are slim in the design phase, but I will definitely be following the progress of the Gecko.

The Italian company firm also shared images of a Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) based on their pistol design. Some of the features are a bit confusing and may not survive their way into production, such as the collapsible stock that also appears to be the top rail. Also, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of room for the fire control group and the striker behind the magazine and chamber.

Not to mention that I’d like to hear more about the triggerless design functions. And the ergonomics may need additional study to identify a typical shooter’s arm length for a suitable length of pull.

I only wish that the company would open up a website or social media outlet to keep us updated on their progress. Hint, hint.

        You are clearly involved in this company or shilling for it. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but you’re not adding a whole lot to our understanding of Technostudio’s designs as much as you’re frantically defending them against any comments that could be in the least bit construed as critical.

        • ghitti francesco

          You are definitely right…
          I’m part of the team of designers
          Who work at Tecnostudio Engineering.
          I’m Italian, and our projects see them as children …

          • Madcap_Magician

            I can understand that. I share much of the skepticism other posters have mentioned regarding your designs, but I can earnestly wish you success in the future, and I think it will be interesting to see how some of these designs may work out outside of AutoCAD.

          • Pete – TFB Writer

            I can confirm Ghitti works for them.

          • Pete – TFB Writer

            Ghitti, TSE needs a website and social media asap. Keep us in the loop.

      • ender

        seems like a P90 style mag, interesting idea for a pistol, not sure if thats been tried before.

  • Max Müller

    They look cool – and that is about it.
    Neither practical nor realistic.
    The 5.56 rifle seems heavy and big, the pdw looks like somebody without any firearms knowledge designed it.

    • Friend

      The 5.56 rifle looks like something I drew up in a notebook as a 7th-grader.

    • ghitti francesco

      pwd…

      The real news …
      Consists in the fact that …
      The MAGAZINE … IT IS UNDER THE BARREL!!!
      MAGIC!!!

      • FulMetlJakit

        As has been mentioned,

        And which will lead to terrible balance,
        which will vary as rounds are fired.

        At least they look cool.

  • Hellbilly

    These designs look similar to the gun doodles I would draw while sitting in study hall in high school almost two decades ago.

  • Giolli Joker

    Manufacturing of suppressed firearms in Italy?
    Good luck with that.

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      I think they hope to sell off the license/patent. I think…

  • Denny

    This is about 90% style, 10% substance (maybe). Don’t you know that Italians are good at styling. Ferrari, Lamborghini… does it ring the bell?

    Guns are supposed to be ugly, not pretty. Why? To scare enemy’s pants off.

    • ActionPhysicalMan

      The Italians ruined yacht aesthetics IMHO.

    • Edeco

      Different doctrines of industrial design. I like to think I could tell an Italian toaster from Scandanavian or US. The British toaster would be the one sitting in a pool of oil burning its wire insulation.

      I like a brutal, pared-down aesthetic, like Glock brand glocks or Lotus Elevens.

  • Dickie

    Perfect for movies and videogames. Thats bout it. Still scifi cool tho.

    Hey baby!
    I saw your gun the other day!
    Yeah?
    Yeah, an’ it’s ugleeee!
    Yeah, it’s ugly, but it sure can shoot, baby!

      WTH? – No Jimmy Soul fans?:-

  • LazyReader

    designs are just that, designs…….physics tells how the parts inside will fit, so a gun may look sweet, but we’ve seen many a video game gun that defies all laws of physics. Still there are some you cant help but drool over https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8bbbed1cd2fca0c1ce0d8ffc587978c8042426af41d15cfd3cc5f9c6512af47a.jpg

    • ghitti francesco
      • BillyOblivion

        No, it’s not.

        Putting the magazine out front like that is going to make it it VERY nose heavy, and that heaviness is going to change dramatically as you empty the magazine.

        Adding additional mechanical manipulation of the rounds–in this case rotation–adds additional failure modes.

        That thing is also *really* long for a pistol.

        Might be a good range toy, but for police, military and civilian defense use? Color me VERY skeptical.

        • ghitti francesco

          is a gun with fingerprint recognition…
          In the handle is the battery and the electronics that governs the system
          Perfect balance …

          • SGT Fish

            sorry, but fingerprint recognition does not belong on guns, it belongs on safes and employee time clocks

          • SGT Fish

            I do however like the designs though. wont know how they’ll function til they are prototyped, but it is definitely thinking outside the box. Forget the electrical computer crap, they’ll be the death of your otherwise unique designs.

          • Dracon1201

            The fact you call it a handle is one of the things that bothers me. Also, perfect balance when 25rds? If this was in 9mm, the rounds (no mag) would change by about 10oz (almost the difference between a g17 and an alloy 1911) during the emptying of the magazine. The way this is designed seems to be mostly molded polymer and alum. It looks like a PMR30 with a magazine in the wrong place. I highly doubt you could properly balance this weapon according to physics. It would be weird; the gun would recoil and have dramatically more muzzle rise as the mag emptied. Also, you’re planning for $250 for a gas system gun? Why not blowback to meet the price point. Overall, this looks like an Art student’s work who has not had a lot of actual experience with guns.

          • ghitti francesco

            Computer analyzes indicate a few millimeter (Tens of inches) displacement of the center of gravity under the full / empty magazine condition …

          • Dracon1201

            And 10oz in overall weight additionally. The problem is how dramatically that will change how this weapon handles. All of the heaviest components are forward of the center of gravity. Are you planning some grip weight to balance it? The back will be so light compared to the front. Especially with the size of the rotation mechanism. Have you ever held a P90 magazine? Have you seen how big the turntable is? On a tiny, thin 5.7 round. In addition, a 25 rd mag is huge without the turntable. A 25rd UZI mag is 166mm or 6.5 inches. If the chamber is 9mm, the turntable has to be approx 1.169 inches at least on the end. So we’re looking at a gun that would be almost 8 inches in front of the trigger for feed mech, magazine, chamber, and so about 6.5-7″ for the barrel. This is incidentally the same length as having a whole FNX45 forward of the trigger. The whole gun will be Maxim 9 short length (mind you lose picatinny rail on the bottom of the design as well). It will be interesting to see where this goes, but I see it being a niche market design (like the Calico was). Either way, I am skeptical and would have to see more design work.

          • ghitti francesco

            It’s perfectly balanced …

  • RavishedBoy

    Vaporware. I’m still waiting reviews of Hudson H9 e Maxim 9.
    So, dear Technostudio Engineering, see you in a cuple of years, when/if you have something tangible.

  • Edeco

    Interesting. I hope they produce something that barks lead. Not holding my breath.

    • ghitti francesco

      WE ARE WORKING FOR YOU…

  • Kristoff

    I was at the UCLA hospital earlier this year; there was a sign in the cafeteria that basically said “Eat less meat, artificial substitute are available.” Well, that sign combined with these (awesome) designs proves to me that we truly are living in a dystopian Cyberpunk future. I can’t wait to start retiring Skin Jobs.

  • aka_mythos

    Retail of $250… that seems unrealistic.

  • Waskoley Wallababy

    You might actually make money if you made these as airsoft guns.

    • Stephen Paraski

      I thought it was airsoft. Never will come about at a $250 price point.
