I WIN !!!

It was a contest right?

I liked the third for exactly the reasons you mentioned, one handed with scope and shorter, chibi.
The scope could have a camera in it that the main computer has a view into.

Sci fi it up. Make it look like a space AK, firing gyrojets or railgun rounds. If you're having trouble with the top check out Soren or Carter on flickr their hardsuit weapons are on point. I think it looks fine with the scope though, you can just claim its another sensor or just state rule of cool! Anyhow great work good to see you active!

Not sure if that makes it more obvious, but it's definitely more noticeable IRL, especially when you're holding it in your hand and posing the mech while making "pew pew" noises to yourself. Unfortunately using the shorter barrel (a screwdriver) with the minifig hand causes some visual and structural issues, so the longer barrel (a 3L bar) has to stay on that version.

Length aside, the top bar makes the whole weapon feel thicker, despite the scope actually being thicker. Again, it might just be that I've spent so long looking at this thing that every millimetre makes a difference.

I'm not trying to shut you down by the way, I genuinely appreciate the input.

Spoiler: show
Here you go. It's pretty sparse though, mainly because I used to have different standards for stuff I'd post here than on Flickr (both in terms of build quality and photo quality). Which is funny considering that almost nothing I've posted on Flickr has good photography anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It also means hardly anything I build gets posted on Flickr because I hold out for good pictures, but never take them. So I'm planning to ease up a little and focus more on actually photographing the stuff I've had built for months or even years.
