This simple weapon is meant to be an 18th century musket. It's missing a few essential parts though, so I'm not sure how accurate this really is. It does have a non-functional bayonet though. Whoo hoo!
There are some innate problems with this model. First of all, it's not properly smoothed, meaning on most of the barrel you can see each individual side with a hard edge between them. The half that isn't unsmoothed cylinders is composed of cubes. I'm not entirely sure what gave the author the idea that muskets were at all square, but... this one apparently is square in a lot of places. And don't even get me started on the texturing or how the model wasn't UV-mapped properly.
In case you don't mind all of the above, this model replaces the E-11 blaster rifle, comes with custom sounds, and a weapons.dat that will alter the fire rate in single-player to be painfully slow. Still too fast to be accurate, but to be accurate you'd have to come up with reloading animations. You might be disappointed to find that there's no first person view, however, which is kind of a disappointment.
Overall this model needs a lot more work to be passable. It's not really accurate, it's obviously rushed, and it's missing some important features (like the first person view!). I'd recommend to the author to go back, actually learn how his software works (smoothing groups in particular) and take some actual time on his next model and put out a polished-off product next time.
