I've recently started working with Blender and i CONSTANTLY get this issue when i make 2 meshes and join them together to form 1 mesh. enter image description here

This is what it looks like before i join the 2 meshes: enter image description here

An this is what i get when i join them. (The magazine is not yet joined with the other meshes) Any help on this issue will be really appreciated. Thanks for the attention!

    $\begingroup$ Can you enter edit mode and turn on the display of the normals, and check the normal direction? Sometimes that happens to me and I have to flip normals on parts or just Ctrl-N recalculate normals. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 26, 2017 at 3:58

Select the entire mesh in edit mode, then press Ctrl + N to recalculate the normals.
