    The lamp attached to the scope seems to be from dieselpunk world 🙂

    Is the rifle functional, or purely decorative?

      Looks like the standard lever action electromagnetic gun in 7mm. A few were tested during the Boer War, but the troops found the short skirts of the girl snipers so distracting that nobody remembered to record the test results.

    Thought for a moment of Burrough’s “John Carter of Mars” series due to the long rifle*, but then realized that she’s grossly overdressed for that!

    Compliments on an interesting costume.

    (*) These rifles were of a white metal stocked with wood, which I learned later was a very light and intensely hard growth much prized on Mars, and entirely unknown to us denizens of Earth. The metal of the barrel is an alloy composed principally of aluminum and steel which they have learned to temper to a hardness far exceeding that of the steel with which we are familiar. The weight of these rifles is comparatively little, and with the small caliber, explosive, radium projectiles which they use, and the great length of the barrel, they are deadly in the extreme and at ranges which would be unthinkable on Earth. The theoretic effective radius of this rifle is three hundred miles, but the best they can do in actual service when equipped with their wireless finders and sighters is but a trifle over two hundred miles.
