Excuse my English. So, im modeling an assault rifle and i was thinking about if its okay to disconnect the highlighted mesh(picture below) from the weapon and just move it a bit inside the weapon to achieve a lower polygon count and more clear mesh.

I want to export this model into Unreal(if this information is important)enter image description hereenter image description here
