Any generic "double action" Smith and Wesson pattern revolver will likely do. The .500 is just a scaled up Ludicrously Large S&W made for the Bigger is Better club.

I want one :P

You could visit a local gun shop and look at a real one too. May be helpful and $0.

I actually ended up finding a free 3d model of a similar gun! So I was using that yesterday.

Here's the pic of it:

That's perfect! Can rotate the model for correct perspective and everything that way, eve put it on a layer for tracing or whatever, sweet :)

+10 smart points!

PS: I still want a ludicrously large revolver cuz the Desert Eagle in .44 Mag isn't manly enough :P

This is the signature gun of Renard from the Kaerwyn comic. Lorelei dubbed it the "Compensator".

Like her artist, she's one perceptive lady :)

While the .500 is mighty, this one I saw at a Bass Pro (in Vegas fittingly enough)is even more over the top in the over compensation department:

=:-D

The video is likely the best way to get a handle on how ludicrous it is :)

CYa!
