M41-A Pulse Rifle

Hello there.

So, I've made this Pulse Rifle lately.
I know that it is far from perfect. It has some minor bugs here and there and topology is a mess in some places.

Low Poly was around 15k tris and the one on renders is about 63k + smooth preview

Just wanted to know what you guys think about it.
I think my skills have improved a little bit since my MAC 10 model user added image

Oh, and it will be textured by a friend o mine in about 2 weeks or something.

So, let me know what you think, any advice how to improve etc any CC appreciated

Cheers!

Good job! I love modelling weapons, it massages my OCD of having to snap every vertex to another vertex so everything is tidy and symmetrical. Lovin' the chunkyness of it too, the front-end looks like it'll be pumping out some HUGE rounds. Keep it up!

Thanks Ben. I think you're right about it being too narrow. No way I'm not going to fix that now user added image

I didn't save low poly model Dave, sorry. Yea, the grip is a bit more curved than original one but It was like that on the concept art I've been working with. Haven't noticed that to be honest user added image
