M7S Submachine Gun - (ODST SMG)

I came here to listen to sad jazz and spray an ungodly amount of bullets... and I'm all out of sad Jazz.

This SMG features attachments that will transform it between the Halo 3:ODST and Halo 2 variants.


Major Features

Threaded Barrel w/ Multiple Barrel Attachments

There is threading on the inside of the Halo 2 Barrel Tip (Compensator?) and the Halo 3: ODST Suppressor. I have tested it out and it screws on easily and securely.


Railing System w/ Multiple Sights

The railing system is functional and the sights slide on and off as you would expect them to. There are also Halo 3: ODST and Halo 2 attachments.


Working Flashlight Compatibility

The flash light in this SMG includes two pieces, a placeholder flashlight and the flashlight attachment. This is done because the placeholder flashlight is based on a keychain flashlight i found on Amazon small enough to fit into this SMG. The design allows this flashlight to be inserted and activated by just twisting the end as the back of the flashlight is locked in place by the attachment.


Seamless Multi-Part Design

All the components slot into each other and will result in no visible seams in the final print. All the parts are already toleranced so that you can print, paint, and assemble with no sanding if you so desire. Also, this allows you to print piece by piece, almost all of which require no supports due to how I designed them. This allows for maximum customization during painting and allows you to not have to back track as far if you mess up a print since most of the parts are on the order of 1-2 hrs depending on your print settings

Builds

Here you can see an all black "classic" SMG, along side my desert inspired ODST SMG. I didn't sand either of these but printed on .1mm so I'm happy enough with how they turned out with how little effort was needed. It definitely makes for a quick and fun weekend project.


I did use Rust-Oleum Metallic Paints for a lot of the pieces. For the desert skin I did branch off into some desert khaki spray paints (suppressor and stock) and regular spray paint for the body.

Here you can see POV when it is using the flashlight. You can also peep a little bit of my Halo prop collection.
