Does that say "Bafety" instead of Safety? Or is it a meaning I just don't know?

As I always loved the luger style blow back mechanism, this is just naturally awesome to me. XD

I think it's a little odd that when the magazine is inserted, the bullets don't point forward with the barrel. Do they turn?

With the 'palm scanner' doesn't that mean you wont be able to pick up comrades' weapons? probably should have just called it 'aesthetically pleasing decal' like it is :)

While we had chosen the pistol with the more distinctive slanted back half, this posed problems in the believable functionality of the weapon. Since the pistol is firing standard ammunition, an empty shell needs to be ejected and a new one chambered with each shot, and the angled design, as well as the ammo counter screen on the back, made incorporating the typical slide mechanism present on most modern day pistols very problematic. The solution was to take the mechanical workings of a WW2 Luger and merge them with the futuristic pistol design, and this combination of old and new not only added the real world functionality we were looking for, but also a distinctive visual look that makes for interesting animation and is cohesive with many of the mechanical elements on the marine structures and equipment.
