GOOGLE ARMS NEXUS MOD 1
In 2042 Google Inc (California) purchased Heckler and Koch GmbH in their quest to infiltrate every profitable market. After allowing H&K to continue it's profitable business for some years they officially changed it's name to Google Arms Inc and began putting pressure on them to create a Google branded weapon for mass market distribution. In the year 2120 Google Arms Inc had finally perfected a 45 caliber side arm worthy of the Google name. The Nexus Mod 1 includes a heavy barrel construction with a fixed slide closed bolt operation. The gun can operate in full or semi automatic modes. The Nexus compensator was engineered after the successful USP Match compensator of the 21st century. The gun itself uses tried and true technology from HK's previous weapons with large advances in material engineering to increase strength and reduce weight. The weapon is chambered in a brand new round the .45 GOOG - a custom designed cartridge specifically for the Nexus. The .45 GOOG round increases the powder load and includes a lead/polymer bullet. The weapon is currently under review by the US military and has been accepted by Canadian and Japanese armies.
I firmly believe that 100 years isn't all that long, considering we're still using tried and true designs from 100 years ago (colt 1911 pattern firearms). I had the idea that I wanted an unlikely company to design this firearm, I saw Google was currently trying to expand its influence into every industry it could get its hands on. It was a natural fit. The weapon itself is futuristic in appearance and minor advances in technology - I wanted to take a "Realistic" approach at a reasonable future. The design of the gun itself is based on both cues from HK's catalog as well as the design of google's nexus phone.
