In general, they look good - but they are HUGE!

I think there is space for a full butterfly band in those handles.

Will let them know, I am sure they can easily fix this.

They look nice. Did the scale go wrong somewhere?

It looks like they turned out well either way. As Dan said, must have been a scale problem. Hopefully it can be resolved after you let them know.

This reminds me so much of the most expensive software failure of all times:

"NASA’s Mars Climate Orbiter – On its mission to Mars in 1998 the Climate Orbiter spacecraft was ultimately lost in space. Although the failure bemused engineers for some time it was revealed that a sub contractor on the engineering team failed to make a simple conversion from English units to metric. An embarrassing lapse that sent the $125 million craft fatally close to Mars’ surface after attempting to stablize its orbit too low. Flight controllers believe the spacecraft ploughed into Mars’ atmosphere where the associated stresses crippled its communications, leaving it hurtling on through space in an orbit around the sun."

They look nice but like you said they look huge. I own a 3D printer and usually when things like that happen its because the scaling was off or the calibration was not done right. PPL usually calibrate it using a 20mm by 20mm cube but the thing is when your off by a mm it becomes a big problem when you go on big items
. Still look badass. Id print a medium size one to keep in my coat pocket

Is the STL file available for download ?
I would print a small one to test it, a little .177 shooter

Will publish the files after the weapon is ready, this still needs plenty of optimizing.
