Looks great, just two points I'd like to make. The way the magazine is currently fed into to the gun can't fit. I kept a ruler on the image, and the magazine would pop out of the handle where the thump goes around the handle. so you'll have to change the angle of insertion for the magazine, or make the handle a bit bigger. The second point is not really something that is wrong, but why did you put a "bandage" around the silencer? Seems like a strange place for that and doesn't seem to serve a function I really like the gun design itself, especially the design of the grip on the handle.

I agree, but from what I could tell the magazine doesn't bump out but it does go right across the outline. All in all, it shouldn't be too hard to fix, he just needs to rotate it and cut a bit off - which would be worth the trouble because even when I'm not concentrating on it the angle is a bit distracting.
I put a ruler across the magazine and traced it all the way up. at some point the line the magazine would follow and the line of the handle of the gun touch each other. While in a strict sense it wouldn't "pop out", it would be impossible for the handle to have any material at that exact spot. Thus it would leave the magazine exposed. Personally I do like the angle of the magazine, if you tilt it more forward you'd lose a lot of capacity in the magazine. I rather see he adds "3 mm" of material (steel, polymer... whatever they'd use to make this) on the back of the handle. It would solve this "flaw" and the gun will keep it's original looks and feeling.
Although I think that all your suggestion would make the gun more "realistic" I don't think that is what this artist was going for. So I think its better just to appreciate the amazing design that we see now.
sorry but I just can't wrap my head around the idea that you would design something like a gun, and then don't care if it would actually work. That would be the same as an architect designing a building, and then don't care whether his design will topple over because it is physically impossible for that building to stay standing.
