This weapon is loosely inspired by the Malorian Arms 3516 from the videogame Cyberpunk 2077, which is a magazine-fed semi-auto pistol but it has a rotating cylinder on the slide for visual interest. I didn't feel like the action made any sense for a ballistic weapon, but might work for an energy weapon.
I started with the base game 12.7mm Pistol mesh and added the cylinder from That Gun, the receiver from the Bozar light machine gun, and the receiver from the Hunting Shotgun which I cut some vent holes in to make it look more sci-fi before adding the iron sights from the .45 Auto Pistol. Lastly, I replaced the cartridge in the magazine with a Small Energy Cell, and added the glowing emitter from the Plasma Defender to make it more obviously an energy weapon.
