What do you mean, "That's not how firearms work?" Do you live on a space colony in a futuristic setting? One that exists in my PERSONAL imagination, for that matter?
But if you did, then you wouldn't be telling me how my FICTIONAL guns can or can't look, because as part of my imagination you would agree with me.
And more so, you missed the part of that that actually mattered:

In my opinion, it looks cool. There are other people out there who would gladly agree that it looks cool. But ultimately, since this is my brainchild, my opinion is the key factor.
And besides, the concept isn't really any different from having multiple lenses in a sniper scope lined up. The only difference is that it's the metal sights instead of glass lenses. So if your alignment was off, it's a little clearer where your shot will go.
