Really cool work.
I'm a beginner 3D artist - can't call myself a novice but also not a pro.
Best of all i prefer sniper arms but this pistol somehow forced me to work. So i decided to take a bottle of good beer and make it in 3D :)
Hope you will not be angry for this. Credits will be included :)

Where's the ejection port? On the top? On the left side of the gun, making it all but useless for right-handers? Does it use caseless ammunition, making the slide totally superfluous? Probably should've read up on the basic principles of gun design before illustrating this.

It says "10 mm caseless" right there on the gun slide.

Go look at a picture of a Desert Eagle and tell me where the traditional "ejection port" is. Doesn't have one, because the slide mates right to the breech and is cut away to reveal the barrel. Same approximate design on many Beretta pistols. There is no ejection "port" because there is no traditional Browning-style slide enveloping the barrel that requires a port. Compare the image above to the Desert Eagle. Obviously the serrated rear portion with the rear sight slides back with every shot where as the front portion remains stationary. The illustration is obviously rooted in the previous designs for the Predator pistol, all of which were in turn based on the Robocop Auto-9 pistol, which was itself a dressed up Beretta 93R with exactly the type of slide/barrel lock up without a traditional port. Also, just because a weapon uses caseless ammunition does not make a reciprocating slide superfluous. Even if there is no empty casing to eject, there still needs to be a mechanism to insert a new shell and lock the chamber. Caseless weapons still need to be able to eject a live round in the event of a misfire or jam. Even an SMG or rifle style caseless weapon will still have to have some type of ejection port for this reason.

Very nice. Im going to be starting a shadowrun character soon with this gun and I did a search for the gun to get a good idea what it looked like. This looks very sweet.

My main characters Weapons (two) of choice. Dunno how she can totally conceal them on arm slides but oh well. Smartlinked is the only way to go :D

Ares Predator IV !!??!!

I did not think it was possible to make perfection better. I may have to dust off my old Street Sam again.
