It is exactly 738 polys!

With a texture that could be a very nice model
It seems to have the most inportant details...

This was my reference:


Besides the handle and stock are rarely seen in first person

Due to some technical errors and the fact I had already uv mapped it, I cannot make it thinner.

Here is the base texture with no detail added yet.


I'm adding the details and some wear and tear now.

my main comment would be to attempt baking a normal map or constucting a normal using Ndo, it'll make the details really pop, obviously

and you should probably get a spec on there as soon as you can, it's really what sells metal, without it it always looks more like rock or concrete than metal.

It's looking good though, you might want to reduce the thickness of the grip, looks a tad too thick to hold, you might want to optimise the stock a tad as well, and what's the tri count? I'm not sure if that's what you mean by polys, if so good job? nice and low

738 polygons would be more of a 3rd person or mobile development polycount. I realize for many programs, especially fpscreator, this a a decent polycount, buit for a true fps in a a "real" game engine (not that fps-creator isn't real, just it is more for the hobbiest) a polycount of 6,000 to 10,000 triangles is typical. You still did a pretty good job of capturing the silhouette, but as said before you need a better reference to capture details more correctly. With a good normal map this could be great.

scaling in the grip somewhat really shouldn't have much impact on your UV map in this instance. It will slightly squash the grain on the back but since it is running horizontal anyways you won't look out of place. besides you can always scale in the UVs to match

No.
The grip is slightly bigger than the trigger area, therefore I would have to scale that part too.
Which I cannot.
