Kanine1134's PT-740 by cityofthesouth Kanine1134's PT-740 by cityofthesouth
Kanine1134 :iconkanine1134: designed the original version which you can see here kanine1134.deviantart.com/art/...

I liked the design so well that I wanted to do a version myself and I finally got around to it. I really liked the H&K influence and if you visit his design you will see that it is a complete system with a suppressor and lighting. Combined with the genius red dot design (which incorporates tall suppressor sights built-in), this is a serious fighting gun. I took a few liberties here and there so maybe this could be considered the Mk2 but I didn't want to stray far from the original. He also designed a cartridge for it and it has automatic firing capabilities with a fire selector switch separate from the safety - another thoughtful concept.

Also look here www.deviantart.com/journal/Gun... for a Fictional Firearm contest and make with the drawing!!!!!!!

cool gun design i like the grips i laughed though when i saw the pt-740 on the gun though im a firearms salesman and thats the name of a god awfull taurus pistol that always gets sent to us with bent guide rods. As you where asking in your comments below what simularities it shares with other pistols they where saying it looks a little like a (FNP early designation) FNX 45 tactical pistol  though yours is much different in form of function and a few cosmetic differences such as your safety grips etc. a good design non the less

Thanks. Ha! I hadn't made the connection to the Taurus. Someone always has to point out the similarities (like the FNP) and maybe I shouldn't just assume that everyone who draws guns has relatively good firearm knowledge but I feel like it would be likely. At least for me I'm perfectly aware of what it looks like, I just liked the original design when I saw it, and wanted to do my own. But you can look at every gun drawing on the entire site and probably find "it looks like this gun" comments. It's a running joke among a few of us.

verymuch understandable everytime i try to draw a cool "original" gun it always looks too much like an Israeli Tavor 21 we sell those in my shop and i cant go a day without picking it up and wanting to hug it an make it my tavor but i dont have 2000 dollars and it got worse when the tavor came with the Mepro 21 israeli sight on it.... i llllloooooovvvveee that gun but id have to fork out 2500 for it and thats with my employer 10% above dealer price... i guess thats why all my future guns drawings look like tavors. I hope the stormtroopers in the new starwars movies have converted tavor rifles as blasters that would be more badass than the converted stirling subgun blasters that couldn't hit anything haha. ANYWAYS rambled a little off topic nomatter what similarities it shows with other guns and what names it shares with a god awful Taurus pistol its still an original design and you should be proud about it!

It looks like a FN pistol, but with some HK attributes.

I like it :P

I didn't figure you were, I'm just not sure how the similarities it shares with other guns is relevant. Thought you might be able to share some insight.

I'm loving this South! Personally, I like this version better than Kanine's, but only for one reason: This version looks slightly more comfortable to hold. But the design itself is genius, in both his version and your's.

Yeah I did think it could use a higher grip and I included a little extra finger space under the trigger guard. I also enlarged the trigger guard forward a little bit and moved the safety for a more natural thumb rest position.

Thanks man. I have spammed all the groups I belong to that have anything to do with guns. Hopefully some of them will help promote and this drawing is in many of them already so that will hopefully help too.

I'm just promoting. I feel too involved to enter. I might be judging so there is sort of a conflict of interest.
