In early-mid YE 41 Galactic Horizon went to work developing a line of robust and sturdy firearms that still shared a lot of features with more modern weapons on the market, something you could drag through hell and back with the comforting thought in the back of your mind that the gun by your side would continue firing – this line of weapons began with the Galactic Horizon 7.7x30mm Recoil Compensating Revolver, more commonly referred to as the RCR.
There’s an old trick most people who put a lot of time and dedication into the art of firing a revolver know, a certain way of dampening the recoil that just makes you look a bit silly if you try it with a semi-automatic – usually when a revolver is fired, the cylinder rotates clockwise; this creates a rotational force in the gun that the shooter can correct with wrist/elbow movement.
The RCR takes this concept of recoil dampening and bakes it into the design of their first revolver, taking the right bit of kick out of its recoil to improve the accuracy and liken it more to the solely backwards shunt of a semi-automatic pistol while maintaining the rugged design and reliability of a wheel-gun.
Statistical information about the Galactic Horizon 7.7x30mm Recoil Compensating Revolver’s measurements and nomenclature.
Upon first glance the Galactic Horizon 7.7x30mm Recoil Compensating Revolver is just another wheel-gun, a rather sleek one with a clean finish but closer inspection reveals the cylinder that appears slightly larger than it needs to be due to the counter-recoil mechanism it is based off of, in addition to this the cylinder sits flush with the barrel though other than and the fact the barrel is in line with the bottom of the cylinder this it just appears to be a modern revolver – complete with two rails, running across the top and bottom of the barrel, and tritium-laced sights.
