    Posted by Zunther All who read, 'ware the wall o' text! Pics 56k unfriendly!

    Ah, okay, the problem is that you've dovetailed it the wrong way. It should be narrower on the top of the slide and wider at the bottom, not narrow at the bottom and wide at the top. Examine this picture for details.

    With regard to the serrations, take a look at this picture (serrations in top left corner). Note how it cuts through the sloped portion of the slide and goes all the way. It is essentially what has been done at the end of the serrations on the bottom of your slide, but mirrored onto the top (if that makes sense?).

    Another thing, the top of the ejection port (where the spent brass comes out) should be straight, not slanted (refer to link directly above) towards the middle of the ejection port.

    Fourth, the ejection port is not symmetrical. On one side, it does not get cut down as low as it appears to have been done. This picture shows that one side of the slide's wall is quite a bit taller than the opposite side. This picture also shows where the chamfer at the end of the slide comes from.

    Fifth, move the slide catch cutout further back, it is located far too close to the bore end (check first link for rough location).

    Sixth, the front of the slide (specifically the top) has some chamfers across the top three edges. It isn't perfectly flat, ditto chamfers for bottom front end of the slide.

    Check this place for some more references. It's served me well, with any luck, it will do so for you as well.

    Keep going!

    thanks for the help man n that link is great!

    Posted by Zunther Could be the perspective... put a render up of the slide from a roughly side on view, then I can see if it's right or not.

    did it also i dont understand point 3 in your post if you could explain please :)

    Posted by Zunther You may wish to separate the barrel from the slide during modeling, it will make it easier for animators further down the line (if you so wish) to rig and animate this.

    Now, for the most part, everything is quite nice, but details can be added (for very little polygon/triangle cost).

    First, at the rear of the slide, right beside the hammer, there should be a small chamfer directly to the left of the hammer. This can be added in with little cost.

    Second, see if you can make the rear face of the slide slightly round. It's quite a gentle curve. That said, there might be flat faced slides, I wouldn't know for sure.

    Third, the slide serrations need to go all the way through the up (right now, part of the angled faces cover the top of the serrations). Refer to linked picture directly above for details.

    Fourth, the sights should be mounted into dovetail cutouts (essentially, a trapezoidal shape). They are not vertically oriented.

    Keep the renders coming, views of other sides would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks alot for the feed back i really do appreciate it and I will take them in account. One thing i didnt understand tho was your last point i thought i did make them trapazoid shaped
