Better Plasma Rifle with CCC (cool cooling cooler) in front :)

Oh, man.

Those heat sinks are sexy.  They strongly remind me of the Q3 rocket launcher:



The rear sight post is reminiscent of the tang sights that were seen on late 1800's Winchester lever-action rifles in the west:



All in all, you've built one kick-ass piece of hardware with this one.  I love the detail with the reservoir and plumbing for the purple gas that will be super-heated and ionized into plasma packets as the gun is fired.

I love all of the work you've done with the metal surfaces on this one.  I see some black anodized steel or aluminum billet making up the core components of the gun, with a few small powder-coated pieces hidden here and there.  The heat spreader in the front is a beautiful piece of billet aluminum or low-chromium stainless steel.  The central magazine/battery appears to be constructed primarily from some high-tin alloy or tinned carbon steel, and most of the remaining rearward components appear to be heavily worn anodized aluminum billet construction.

Excellent attention to detail all around.   ;)

I wonder if the four protrusions just forward of the central magazine/battery are some sort of exhaust or cooling vents?  If so, it would be absolutely amazing to see some sort of visible gaseous discharge incorporated into the firing animation eventually.

Thanks for review :)
"exhausts" could be extended by some steam particles after firing which come from cooling system based on chemical way. Also magazines contains not only power for firing but also cooling filling. Animations will be added, sure.

P.S. Two barreled shotgun? And next three barreled one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g080CNxRsiw :)
