"note that the way the light hits both cylinders and the bayonet all comes from different directions"


Well, if you're actually trying to photograph something as complex as a firearm, you do a LOT better with multiple light sources than a single light source coming from one direction.

That way you don't have hard shadows and you can reduce glare by using softer lights instead of one very bright one.
