See? I haven't actually abandoned the AK-74. This first test build is a long way from where I want it to be, though. There are some features that haven't been perfected yet, and there are some corrections and changes that I've made to the patterns but haven't built yet (such as the grooves that should be on the stock and the bumps on the handguard). That will be the purpose of the second test build.

A couple of steps forward so far: The trigger is spring-loaded, and so is the magazine follower. The hammer still needs some work, though. The grip should be easier to build, and the muzzle brake turned out well enough.

AK-74 Test Build 1
First attempt so far. It's very similar, structurally, to its predecessor. The dimensions are slightly changed in a lot of places, though, so parts won't necessarily be 100% compatible. The stock and receiver are a bit narrower, for example.
The muzzle brake and magazine turned out well. A couple of parts like the gas block and handguard cap turned out to be slightly off, and I've since adjusted them. For the next test build, I've also introduced a few additional details like the rear sling loop and distinctive grooves in the stock, but I don't know when I'll get a chance to build the next test build.
There is a pair of springs attached to the trigger, pushing it back forward. I was unsuccessful in installing a good hammer spring, but I'll keep trying. The bolt doesn't grab cartridges just yet, but it's a work in progress. I made a magazine follower than can move, and doesn't require a large spring (there is an internal secondary "floorplate" not very far below the follower). This version has a solid barrel, but I've since introduced a way to hollow out a space for the chamber - just haven't test built that yet.

The grip looks the same, but it's now constructed like the AR grips, that is, with a series of half-cylinders on the front and back, so it should be easier to build than the previous AKM grip.

Вот развертки, такие как они сейчас есть. Я не уверен, что все правельно подходит, но эти развертки чуть-чуть подкорректированы посли первого попытка. Были еще добавлены некоторые детали, например канавки в прикладе. Но, к сожалению тут нет инструкций, так как я боюсь зделать инструкции, которые станут устаревшими несколько версий спустя, так как получилось с АКМ V2. Зато многие части тут очень похожи, и по этому ничего особенно необычного тут не должно быть.

 Спасибо конечно же) Но я не ожидал, что ты дашь возможность собрать тестовую версию. Я не обещаю что соберу ее быстро, так как я на работе и времени очень мало. Но я постараюсь ) Тем более у меня есть еще недоделки .... vk.com/wall-74190999_8471

I've printed out the final parts (spring button, cartridges, and side rail), but haven't built them yet.
That said, this is only the first test build, so it's not ready for release until a few more test builds are made.

All I have left to make on the AK-74 first test build is the sling loop, recoil spring guide/button, and the side rail.
