Mouth Operated Gun Concept by Brisineo Mouth Operated Gun Concept by Brisineo
A few nights ago in a dream I had an epiphany and I believe I created a practical design for a mouth-operated gun as seen in Fallout Equestria. Granted, it isn't described in appearance as it is in the fic, but it's certainly the most effective, as said by some gun engineers that I showed this to.

The concept of it is like how the butt of a human gun transfers recoil into the arm instead of the gun (preventing it from flying away), a pony gun is built to be secured to the jaw via support areas for the palette, chin, teeth, and cheeks an so the recoil is transferred into the using pony's neck. (and let's be clear, a pony's mouth and neck are far stronger than a human's, making this concept realistic)

For a manually set gun such as a revolver, the hammer is set by pressing a plate with the tongue on the front side of the mouth. The trigger is on the roof of the mouth, underneath the palette support, and is set off by pressing the tongue against the roof of the mouth. A semi-auto or full automatic gun (or in some cases, a magical-energy beam weapon) would just have the safety and trigger.

The side flares, or the equivalent of the stock, acts as a side guard to block debris and exhaust, and also to counterbalance the barrel, keeping the center of gravity near the center of the gun so as to keep it pointed straight. The barrel is topped by TWIN sights, because it's centered. A scope would be off center as well, being off to the side. You can also have the gun so it's collapsible for holstering.

This is purely my design, and it just makes more sense than the others that I've seen out there.

I dunno, man. Guns are powerful things, and they have enough recoil power as it is. I think the recoil ponies would experience when the gun is mounted on their face would be pretty bad. Very cool idea, though. That recoil thing is the only thing I see wrong with it.

Except firing a gun from your mouth could tear your fucking jaw

One thing I would like to point out is that smaller secondary guards behind the cylinder might be necessary to block the gas expelled by a revolver's firing. As it is the gas might roll over top the guards and into the pony's face and burn them. I'm not trying to nitpick, but it looks like you worked hard on this so I wanted to give you some constructive criticism.

I'm a bit confused as to how the rifles work. The pistol appears to be mounted directly in front of the jaw to reduce torque, but the rifle would have to be to the side, and it produces greater impulse.

A rifle can still be centered, you just simply need the right counterweight (which are in the side stocks) to keep the center of gravity near the front of the mouth, and make the mouth parts more secure (perhaps lengthening the chin support to reach around the neck) to prevent it from tetering upwards upon firing.

For a longer rifle such as a sniper rifle, it would have a stand near the front to stabilize it. (if the pony isn't doing something heroic or are zebra trained and holding it with their hooves)

A counterweight would help you hold it, but the recoil would still be off-center when you fire.
