I’m looking for current or classic real-world (modern or recent historical, dating back to World War II/1950’s) weapons, or realistic fictional weapons of the type you’d see in spy movies/TV shows (classic, such as James Bond/Man from U.N.C.L.E., or modern-day) or war/thriller movies. For example, I’d love to find:

- the M-16/M-4 series
- the AK-47/AK-74 series
- Uzi or similar modern/recent classic submachine guns
- machine guns such as the M-60
- rocket-propelled grenades or antitank weapons such as the Soviet/Russian RPG series or the LAW/TOW
- pistols, modern or classic (e.g., Glock/Beretta for modern or Colt M1911/Luger/Walther P-38 for classic)
- attachments for pistols/rifles such as silencers, laser sights, grenade launchers, etc.

I’m having difficulty finding the kind of stuff I want in the Daz shop (or Renderosity); the great majority of weapons sets I’ve found so far seem to be fantasy/SF/steampunk. I do have the Firearm Set but it’s really pretty bland and generic and I want to use more realistic weapons in my renders. Any ideas?

has an extensive collection of well-modeled modern weapons. They aren’t cheap, but if you sign up for their newsletter, they often offer a 30%-off (or better) coupon during the last few days of the month.

That one’s great. Does it work in Daz Studio?  (I should have mentioned that, if I didn’t before.)

It’s quite an old model, he mentions Poser 4, so it isn’t going to have any fancy node based textures, which is the main problem normally.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Got a couple of items from OnTarget3D, including the “generic” special-ops weapon and the small-arms poses. I really want the four Assault Weapons sets, but they’re rather expensive. :\

Yes, I have that already. It’s a bit overly futuristic for my purposes though; as I said in the original message, I’m looking for current or recent classic (World War II or after) pistols, rifles and such.

The Gun sets that Chohole pointed out work fine in DS,  I think there are 4 packs now, but I only have the first because I too was looking for guns a while ago and only had a couple that came with outfits.  I don’t regret buying that set, and it’s on sale at the mo.

OK. The first and possibly the third set seem to be the best fit to my needs; second and fourth have a more science-fictional air than what I’m looking for at the moment. I wish those Panko sets would go on sale; they’re absolutely terrific. (From his bio at OnTarget3D, he comes by his knowledge first-hand, having been in the Greek Parachute Regiment!)

I was JUST going to post about the other 3 sets, but you beat me to it.  Just click the Editorial Tab on that product page as Mock linked thumbnails to sets 2, 3 and 4.  Ooops, seems that set number 4 is no longer available.  long face

Nice find Cho, thanks for the link.  wink  I’m a firm believe you can never have too many weapons. cheese

cheese No operation ever failed because you were overpowered weapon-wise. Actually, right now I’m working on a series of swordfighting renders using a free rapier set I found on - I think - ShareCG. I spent six hours today working on a huge render (16 figures!) - well, I didn’t have anything much to do because of Sandy - so that’s how I spent my afternoon. The thing isn’t ready for primetime yet, however; I need to address issues with pokethrough and hair arrangement, and also the pictures I did at the resolution I originally switched pixelized the backdrop something awful, so I have got to try lower resolutions until I get a good balance.

Back to firearms - isn’t there ANY good (and realistic, not science-fictional-looking) pistol set with silencer out there that’s free or low-cost? I’ve found several free pistol models on ShareCG and elsewhere, but none of them appears to have a silencer or suppressor. (The Pistol A1 model on ShareCG doesn’t really count for my purposes because, to my way of thinking at least, it doesn’t look too much like a “real” moderrn or classic pistol. Yeah, I’m being picky. raspberry )
