The lighting looks good, however the shadows on the top are a bit too big and heavy. try and tone down the bumpy texture slightly as well.
i edited the left half of the pictar:
a little tip for posting pics is to uncheck watermark, as it compresses the image pretty bad :]
I think i just came out with a really good technique for damage O.o im going to do some on the bit im doing now and post a wip in a bit and you can all help me decide wheather im going to like it or not ;)

I think the 30 round mag would look a little better with the carbine front. Also, don't forget the flash hider :p
;) im doing everything in the pack, and i think i might skin most fo the scopes out there, make a huooooge package, to like well customizable thingy ><
also uv tryed using a different base picture 3 any better?
more lighting again?
Needs a penis extention 30 round mag instead, lol. besides that it looks hella-awesome
just for fun you might try doing 2 variations: one being your style with the clean and ready-for-combat look, and another with a little more wear-n-tear on it. i think it'd be great for you to broaden your horizons and challenge yourself, and someone with your skills could go extremely far with it :)
If you want some refs, search for SPR mk 12 for the grip, and go to www.VLTOR.com iirc for the gas block and upper reciever. the stocks are ACE Raid stocks/Ultralite stock, or a JP magstock depending on which one you're using.
I think your base is too strong on this one. I would tone that down and try to bring out the lighting a little more. the fingerprint brushes you used for the random grunge are also slightly small for the rifle.
It is very clean, but i dont want to put too much damage on it, so if anyone knows any good PS brushes, that can produce a nice amount of damage for the edging that would be sweet ;)
also if you can do some images, on where and what not on i can shove some more detail or what ever that be sweet.
