Interesting enough... Although, the recoil maybe a bit of a problem...

Funnily enough, a head-mounted weapon was actually conceptualised in real life. The gun was on top of the head, with the trigger on an assembly that connected to the mouth, like a horse's bit.

 

The design failed, likely due to inaccuracy.

 

This just looks like a good way to get one shot off before breaking your teeth.

It's not my idea, I tried to put a bit more sense in weapons from Fallout Equestria.

I really love this kind of Mouth Revolver Concept. Maybe would think of Semi Auto Pistol idea ?

I thought if i could borrow your idea for me to draw based on Semi Auto Pistol?  I will credit you for this.

I like your design, reminds me of Littlepip's Little Macintosh revolver from Fallout Equestria.

After i read FoE, i see a lot of arts with Littlepip and her revolver, and no one model of revolver looks like i want it to see. So i draw one myself :D

Nice! 

Personally though, I never really bought the whole set-up in Fallout Equestria about how ponies hold and use their weapons - the recoil from a mouth-mounted gun firing would break necks, and the battle-saddle's controls and set-up is just too exceedingly clumsy for combat, among other things. Much as they try to justify them, it just doesn't work. Only unicorn telekinesis seems to be able to allow proper dexterous use of firearms in combat, for without dexterity one's good as dead in combat. 

Maybe the author should had invented some kind of TK Collar tool and be done with it.

Interesting! Trigger is tongue operated I assume.

One comment: I think you'd want the barrel more inline with the 'grip', otherwise recoil forces will flip the whole thing up and into his face.

That wouldn't work well with traditional revolvers since moving it more in line with the grip would require lowering the frame, which would not leave room for the hammer. The only other way I know of to do that is to design it like the Chiappa Rhino with the barrel on the bottom. Not trying to sound assy, just thought I'd put in my two cents.

You could turn it into an automatic revolver that uses recoil to move a slide on top of the frame that cocks the hammer and rotates the cylinder. No huge external hammer to worry about, just a smaller one. This would let you move the frame even with the grip I believe.

Guess it depends on the distance of the cylinder from the grip and how far the hammer moves, but fair point. What about rotating the mechanism 90 degrees; there's no thumb spur to worry about?

Recoil handling is one of the reasons the pistol is shaped as it is (recoil pushes the muzzle up; the fingers of the hand apply force to move the muzzle back down). I think Vombavr is on the right track with the mouth-grip being as flat and deep as it is, allowing for more of the mouth to control the firearm, but tooth-removal might be an issue...

...though, if you'll remember, Daring Do supported her entire body with her teeth and Rainbow Dash was tearing beams from a barn with hers. So maybe MLPony teeth are more firmly rooted (or maybe even outgrowths of?) the jaw. Plus, horses have a gap between their front teeth and back teeth, which could create a perfect resting place for a pistol grip while not really having any teeth to knock out there. The only issue then would be sore gums...grip padding, maybe? There are "soft" woods, too, though that might move into sanitation issues (germs and grime being absorbed into the wood).

Just my five bits on the idea : )

Don't agree with your first statement, not for a modern revolver anyway; it's the forearm that moves, not the fingers.
Totally agree with the size of the mouth-grip, bigger the better.
Still think you'd want recoil to be 'straight back', as the neck is better placed to absorb the recoil (lots of muscle), rather than some of that force going in to rotating the gun inside the jaw. As long as you had a good grip you should be OK -- for smaller calibers, anyway!

You'd want it in your teeth, they are much tougher than the gums (and horses have huge teeth). Padding isn't an issue, could use a natural rubber if synthetics aren't available.

O_O. This is exactly what the revolver belonging to one of the minor villains in my FOE story looks like. Or what I imagine it would look like, very nice work.
