Colt M1911 Silenced by Bahr3DCG Colt M1911 Silenced by Bahr3DCG
Here is a 3D Colt M1911 Pistol in its carrying case with some extra magazines. I modeled it in Maya 2012 and rendered it in Keyshot 3. I would really appreciate favorites, comments, and critiques!

Thank you for viewing!

Here is a new render of this model!

I will be honest, submitting this as a critique looks like more work than I can handle atm so here goes :
It looks like your trigger guard clips the foam in the case, I might be wrong, but unless its a tiny trigger guard, it looks wrong :(
Your magwell is perfectly "cubic" (AKA it's flat), this would not work in a real gun, since the magazine would get stuck, the gun would be uncomfortable to hold, and it would ruin the case.
Other than that, it looks like most details are in order, I don't know enough about the 1911 to know whether you can actually cock it without a magazine in it, but I doubt that it is possible.
It would be better visually if the indentation/curve/whatever at the front of the barrel stopped before hitting the lower body of the gun.
Maybe add some visual cues that the gun has been used?
IE : you might want to work on your textures, adding grime and dirt can be incredibly satisfying, and add a LOT to realism, scratches on the magazines where they would hit the side of the magwell, scratches on the magwell,holes/indentations in the foam (unavoidable in real life), +maybe a bump map or two on the floor+the steel part of the case that is visible to the viewer.. :)

The modeling looks good, can't really find any glaring faults, so keep plugging :)

Oh yeah, I just noticed, it looks like you used some form of highly reflective chrome as the texture for the magazine release+safety, while it looks cool by itself, it only has the boring Gray from the case to reflect, and therefore looks weird.. Might want to change that material :/

The indent below the pistols indent. In this image its the one right below the silver piece.

so its a good render
guns i always feel are always a bit iffy because they are basically usually just 2 rectangulars and look unconvincing very fast without some care

then again i suck at drawing them other then glocks
