    jlampel I think I figured it out for the most part. I had some trouble with an artifact on upload in the notch at the back of the gun, but I think it had to do with the subsurf modifier and then there seems to be some discoloration in the top back corner of the gun, but it doesn't show up in blender, only in sketchfab.

    Nice work! I'm not sure I can pass this yet though. There's some sort of geometry problem going on near the back notch, and the top chamfer almost looks like its normals are backwards. That area you mentioned also does look pretty rough. If you post the file to the forum and tag me, I can take a look at it! I can't think of what exactly would cause that off the top of my head. Baking normals can be really tough, so don't give up! You're incredibly close.
