Out of the references, I picked my favorite design – the museum website calls it “Possibly Albanian”. It’s actually all the way from the 19th century, which surprised me because the later centuries have more plain-looking weapons. But something about this pistol caught my attention.

Blocking it out in Maya! Trying to make sure the topology flows well for further work in ZBrush. Still some parts left to make, but it’s starting to look like a gun.
