Whatever you want, dude. That’s kinda the beauty of it. Whether you use old ideas in an innovative way, come up with a new combination, or something entirely new; your contribution to progress is still yours.
Never get discouraged. In the middle of thousands of mistakes, you might find one gem that makes it all worthwhile; or the fun of trying can be its own reward. It might sound sappy, but its also true.
Keep smiling ... it'll just make 'em wonder what you're up to...

You gotta get off the World Wide Web of Misinformation and start bending metal. Light bulb over the head inspiration and total innovation aren't required, function is.

while its not a rifle, i would like to see a rather large handgun, six shooter chambered for 45 long colt. old school break down style with case ejectors. the gun fires [I]on the bottom chamber on the cylinder[I] at the 6 oclock position with a square counter weight running the length of an 8 inch barrel. for pics, just google the images for trigun. used to watch that show a few years ago. would love to own one of those.

OP started same thread in General Rifles
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
