    So this is almost certainly not an existing pistol.
    It's Lara Croft's guns in the upcoming game, and since my wife is a pretty hardcore fan of this franchise, i'm trying to get her this pistol.

    Unless this is a very accurate representation of an actual firearm (in which case finding it will be somewhat easy), i'll probably go by a replica that i'll mod, or even a 3d print. But for that, i still need a baseline.

    For instance the trigger guard looks a bit like a SW 745 or a Glock, but not quite. Same goes for the engraved diamond texture in the wooden grips. But then the safety lock is nothing that i know of (barely looks like a Llama M82 or maybe the Fort-12), and even the shape of the wooden grips reminbds me of a Beretta or a P22x.

    And then there are several little details (like the shape of the hammer) which are less important, but i'd need you guys to point me in the right direction.

    Also there's a .45 ACP marking on the side of the barrel, but that might not even be true. More often than not in games, they take a very different ammo-firing version and pretend it's something else so don't let that fool you (but it might be correct though).

    An artists conception. Based on no single real gun. Lacks takedown and slide stop
    notches on the slide, Appears to be DA/SA with a slide mounted safety and a grip
    safety--a combo that AFAIK doesn't exist anywhere. Looks like the designer may have been a John Browning fan---I can see design elements of the 1911 and Hi-Power.

    Beretta 92 has most of those features, but lacks a grip safety I think.

    I had a friend who wanted to do Halloween as Lara Croft,,,
    We did a Google for "Lara Croft + Pistols" and came up with these Airsoft guns.

    They are replica HK's of some ilk and were made to look exactly like her guns,,,
    I made the holsters and gun-belt for the pair.

    If I recall correctly they were $39.95 each.

    Thanks everyone !

    BillM : as stated, this is not even close of being real. Designers often take huge liberties :D

    Balota : totally agree with you, that's the one i'll use as the base.

    aarondhgraham : thanks, but those where the old guns. Already have them here anyway.
