Voted for M. Main reason is that M's gun looks more like the actual model. A few things about Jklaroe's gun:

1) the handle area; its too blocky. needs some more roundness. have you ever held something square like that? it aint too comfortable. 2)The magizine area isnt defined too well. You cant really tell where the magazine and the slot for it seperate. 3) The barrel of it is solid. How would the bullets come out the barrel if its blocked up solid?

A few things about M's gun:
1)Blocky edges. I think that you could of made your gun more sleek, more smoother. 2)The overall design of the gun is more complicated, therefor making more of a challenge.


Ok, theres my reasons Nice job both you you!

I agree with hybrid. I voted for M.

JKLaroe's gun seemed very hard to tell.. the actual gun if you understand. seemed very basic and simple. Which isnt a bad thing all the time, simple can have amazing effects sometimes.. but it was too generic. Mybe a little more deffinition woudl help.

M's was well detailed and well designed compared to the original. very nice. The only comments is loking at the wireframe it looked like a lot of cylinders and so where barely edited but it did come out to the finished product excellently. so no complaints.

I think m's was better, more complex and all.. but if laroes gun was more detailed slightly, with a better render and orginization he had a serious chance to pull a come from behind.

my vote gose for M if the pole is still going.

just a lot of care went in to tweeking it and asimbaling little parts.

not to mention it was nice detail on the sight, as that was blery in the ref pic and I feel M had to gess..
