This photo was reposted by @ArmoryBlog and was originally posted by @theglockchannel. It looks like a Glock 43 stripped down and suspended. Possibly hung with fishing string and photoshopped out the lines. It does not look like a CG rendering, however if it is a CG model then the subtle attention to detail is amazing in the rendering.

What do you think? Is it computer generated or the real thing suspended by wires?

    I think it’s witchcraft!

  • Brick

    Took a photo of each component on a neutral background and then rearranged them all in a new image.

    Each component is its own layer.

      Look at dis .psd pugilist ovah here

          You can see how the lightsabers don’t cast a light (there’s shadows under the lightsabers in some instances).

          Obviously shopped.

            Bullsh$t, I was there bro, it was hectic!

          • billyoblivion

            So hectic the light couldn’t even keep up.

          I can’t see any bodies or body parts totally severed….. has to be ‘photo shopped’ ! !

            Dude, light sabers cauterize the wounds and fuse the flesh back to together in a nano-second. So, unlike all that fake stuff in StarWars, no body parts laying around or pools of fluids. Dude, do you even light saber dude?

        • Oregon213

          Why, oh why, would the British get green sabers?

          They are/were the empire, literally.

      Sounds right, the edges look weird, light on some of the pieces a little different. Also the pixels, can tell from those.

    • USMC03Vet

      Dat clipping path! ?

    • RICH

      AWESOME job by @theglockchannel ! IMHO.

      • Brick

        For sure.

        I was wrong anyway, he used fishing line!

  • Petto

    Ehm , don’t we have enough of Glock internals clones? they want to copy it even more? heh

  • QuadGMoto

    I tracked this back. @glockinc posted it, with a reference to the photographer: Corey Mackenzie. Here’s what he had to say:

    coreymackenzie354@aim2ms.behave Yes, fishing wire and lots of patience!


    coreymackenzie354@connorpofia The background is totally real, no green screen. I’m all about as little Photoshop as possible so to do this I actually hung every part from fishing line suspended from a PVC pipe frame and just removed any visible lines digitally afterwards.

    Nice job, Corey!

      why in gods name?

      • billyoblivion

        Cause all the big problems are mostly either solved, or really really hard. Gotta have something to devote your life to.

      • Bill

        Working harder, not smarter.

  • MrBrassporkchop

    Exploded view of a glock, how apt.

  • Don Ward

    Glock really needs to work on its QA. First it was issues of the slide coming off its rails. Now this.

  • Nathan Alred

    Dropped from a great height at carefully controlled intervals and photographed as they fell?

    • VanDiemensLand

      Um, no…….

  • Gary Kirk
  • RICH

    All I can say is; SWEEEET PIC ! ! ! If only I knew how to do that stuff on my computer !

  • Ann

    Neither. The glock was laid out only very loosely assembled and then tossed into the air.

  • Dougboffl

    Would have been quicker to toss all the parts in the air and snap a pic. After probably 1.758-billion attempts one of them would look exactly like this.

  • robert57Q

    I thought he suspended a whole Glock, pulled the trigger and let nature take its course.


    Not shopped.

    Dropped. DSLR, a ton of light and shutter speed at 4k.
