Commando refers to XM177. Model 607 was very short series called CAR-15 SMG (it's not SMG however since it fires intermediate 5.56x45mm round). It will be a rare, pretty unique weapon but we will also have more common XM-177 around :)

There will be M16A1 without scope, its pretty much the same weapon

As you can see these rifles have mounted adaptors for mounting M203, mounting it without them is impossible. We would need new grenade launcher model with these adaptors.

niick @ M16A1

The main problem with M16s back then was lack of education of soldiers about cleaning the weapon, bad equipment for cleaning and bad ammo (wrong powder) - all of that was fixed later.
It's still not as reliable as later AR-15 variants, like M16A4 or M4A1 but it's not as bad as stereotype says.

I think it's fine, maybe bit too worn but well it's rather obscure weapon. What changes would you like to see?

G3 uses more powerful cartridge, this one is closer to M4A1/Mk18 CQBR

Sure we would but as I said we'd need new anims - like with other weapons that need new anims it's a no go for now.

But it's hard to make stuff fall as much as we'd like it to, it's rather random and depends only on velocity... it's very simplified compared to ShoC ballistics.

In theory yes, it would be possible but it would require screwing around with physics to get it realistic (not shooting on 600m in straight line) and would need completely new anims. Not in near future.

It should be possible to make every weapon in both TAZ and MISERY 2.2 available to disassembly the same way

I'd like to see it too but as always the anims are the problem. Same thing with box-mag PPSh.

Yeah at least once a week there's a new image with information how the development goes. I might also post some more info about balance and the video that will show weapon handling in close future.

Yup it's a solid, cheap and all-round weapon, perfect for early episodes but you can be successfull even in late game missions with it.

niick @ Ruger Mini-14

Yes, 5.56x45 weapons will be able to use .223 but .223 weapons won't use 5.56.
I'm also thinking about making it the other way, .223 guns can shoot 5.56 but it will damage the gun quickly - we'll have to think about it

Yes we will introduce 6x35mm ammo for it, I want to give it option to rechamber to 5.56x45 or .300BLK though

maybe not a lot but it will not be rare either

If we find similar model - yes.
AK-105 however doesn't have recoil balance system like AK-107 so it doesn't have lower recoil, it's just a carbine version of AK-74M.
AEK-971 has similar system so it will be closest to AK-107.

niick @ MP-40 and MP-44 in-game

Criticism is vital for anyone to make things as good as possible so don't be afraid to express it :)

It's all WIP and StG44 will be made to eject proper 7.92x33 cases. By the way, the cases themselves are not models but sprites, so it's not that much work. This thing has however low priority for now and I will make it when we're close to release.

Yes, every weapon will use it's own correct ammo. Desert Eagles will be in three flavours, .357, .44 and .50AE.

Current version - yes, but it has way less content and some models are outdated

You mean the one with original folding stock or custom fixed wooden/polymer stock?
here we have one with original stock: Moddb.com
and we plan to make one with custom fixed stock, but it's still WIP

For now - no. We plan to make standalone version but that will be in distant future, after we finish current installment. You can try to extract the guns on your own but it will take you some time.
