I dunno, must have slipped past the public eye while I was working on it.

Cool but could you improve the lighting.

Yeah, getting the lighting looking good is one of the things I often have trouble with on my renders.

Not really, the design is custom, but I took some ques from the Steyr pistols because I love their shape.

The trigger safety needs to protrude only out the bottom half of the trigger. This type of safety works because any small objects that tug on the trigger will slide to the center, where it is unable to disengage the safety that is located lower. Hope that helps and is understandable, I have an M&P9 with this safety type.

Alright, I'll be sure to research up on the mechanics and get it fixed for the next render.
Thanks for the tip!

It's very simple elegant system like most weapon mechanics are, check this link [link]
On the left image, at the back of the trigger there is that tiny notch/gap between the trigger and body of the gun. The slot in the body that the trigger pulls back into is very snug, so this little protruding notch will impact the body, preventing the trigger from moving back. As you can see in the center image, when the bottom half of the trigger is pulled the safety rotates and that notch smoothly recedes into the rest of the trigger, allowing the trigger to slide back into the body for a full trigger pull.
Here is my gun [link] where again you can see that sharp protrusion at the back of the trigger that will impact the body unless the bottom of the trigger is pulled.

The M&P9's system is rather interesting. When I created the system seen in this render I was roughly going off the design used by on the Brugger and Thomet MP9 machine pistol, which uses roughly the same principal with slightly different mechanics.
I will certainly have to rework the trigger area, as the current one is rather rough.
Thanks for taking the time to point it out, it always helps to get pointers on things I have overlooked.
