This is about as close as I can get to having one of these rifles here in California. Thank goodness we have heroes like Feinstein to think for us. What kind of trouble would we have gotten ourselves into if we were still allowed to own these evil rifles?
that modeling program wouldnt happen to be free, is it? :D
Are you using textures in the "shiny" pic?

It's not free but there's a free trial that you can download. It's the full program but it puts a huge watermark on your images. Google "Maya PLE" (Personal Learning Edition). For an awesome program that IS totally free, Google for "Blender". And no there are no textures. It's just a really reflective black material and I used HDRI lighting. Basically it puts a sphere around the object with an image on it and that's where the reflections come from. The scope actually magnifies too but it's distorted so I didn't take a shot of that. I'm trying to figure out how to make the refractions clearer.
