Thats just a muzzle brake. There are quite a number of real sniper rifles that have it as well - it just means that the gun packs a significant punch

This one actually looks somewhat similar to the one on the Q sniper rifle:

And if you look at some tank muzzle brakes, the design doesnt seem all that unreasonable anymore

Huh, neat! I've never seen a gun with one of those before. The more you know!
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Well, they are kinda rare... only there when they are really needed, so I can see where the confusion is coming from. And on tanks they are no longer in use since a few decades, because modern ammo is fin-stabilized, and said fins would get caught in the brake and rip apart both the barrel and the projectile

The rifle with have a self contained belt system much like the A10 tank buster in real life instead of ejecting shells it is contained in a belt and fed back into the ammo storage. Also to support this ass seen in the model kits all the rifles have a chain system fed between the 2 circular mechanisms which most likely move the chain to feed the ammo into the chamber and then move the empty casing back around until the rifle is empty.

It will then need to be retrieved by nerv and connected to a dedicated ammo chain removal and insertion system like again with the A10 if you look this up on YouTube you can see one of these in action.

I assume you're talking about the original post there; it would make sense for them to have a system like that, yeah. The Pallet Rifle's ammo system is a bit weird anyway and can't really get reloaded, so I don't super love that part of it, but it's not bad, either.
Alternatively, it could also have cartridgeless ammo, wouldn't be the worst choice at that size
