This is my first time making a prop by myself. I think it came out fairly well, but it IS missing some minor details. Any suggestions on what I'm missing? Thank you!

The butt of the Stock (yellow/black stripe section) is supposed to go against your shoulder. You can see in the ref picture you provided that the gap from the butt to the handle is much shorter than in your prop. If possible try trimming down the length of the top pipe so that you could hold the gun a little more realistically.

The bullet magazine/clip in the ref picture looks like it would hold maybe 5 bullets. I'm guessing based on the thickness of the shaft. On your actual prop it looks like about 10 bullets or double the length on the magazine. Possibly removing the bottom half would help with the sizing better.

I would suggest maybe a matte black paint instead of (guessing) black duct tape, or rather on top of it. Then apply matte silver Future Card Buddy Fight for highlights. Though really this would be less of an impact as the shine from a distance isn't noticed.

Hope that helps ^^
