Weapon and scene for competition

This is one of the first weapon models that i have ever made. I created it for this competition- https://hum3d.com/3d-guns-challenge/ It has been submited and now i can share it on forums so i wanted to ask, how should i improve this weapon model and scene?


The highlight on the stock is extremely uniform. I think it would benefit from some variation in the roughness. Also the middle of the stock is the same thickness as the rest. In this reference it looks a little thinner to me. image Also the tree has no roots or transition between itself and the ground (I know that’s not the focus of the image but it really stood out to me). Overall it looks good and I think it just needs a couple touch ups.
