And so about four months behind schedule, we finally reach the completion of the HK416 model. The above tracker is useless now, except perhaps as a symbol of how happy I am that it's over. If anything, we got some new accessories out of this, and now people will have a proper model to build instead of having to bother with the sloppy and floppy V3 buffer tube and barrel.

What's next? Well, it's time to revisit the AK platform, is it not? I just can't bear to leave it where it currently is. Though I haven't done much drawing in a while either, and that just may be more important.

Thank you for your patience, everyone!

PM AR V3A416 by Hoborginc
PM AR V3A416
Build a paper model of the Hk416 carbine.
This model is 1:1 scale, consists of several distinct parts that can be disassembled, and includes a collapsible stock and moveable bolt carrier.
In addition to the rifle, some accessories like a foregrip, various ironsights, an ACOG optic, and an AN/PEQ-15 laser/IR module are included.

The receivers and magwell are compatible with the PM AR V3.

The download package contains instruction photos in addition to pattern pages in black, tan, and white.
PNG version (80.7 MB)
PDF version (52.5 MB)

What kind of paper and glue do I use?
90-lb or 185-g paper, and regular white paper glue. Tacky glue also works, and dries faster, but may have more volume.
The images (1700x2200), while larger than a page, turn out the same size on letter and A4 paper if automatically resized to printable area.

What's the difference between this and the AR V3?
Besides the Hk416 style details, the stock is attached via a much sturdier buffer tube, and the barrel is significantly strengthened as well.

Can it actually cycle a cartridge like one of tacome1942's models?
No. The moving parts do not replicate 100% functionality, they're just there for appearances.

Can I attach accessories from other models to the rails?
Sure. The rails are pretty close to 1:1, so it's even possible to put real accessories on them (although this isn't recommended because the weight would break them off).

I'm having trouble with X part.
Ask about it via comment or pm. Also let me know if there are any problems with the files.

Can you make X model?
Requests are added to a request tracker, but I'm generally unlikely to deviate from my schedule. Overall, I'm more interested in improving existing models and solving problems than branching out into something completely new, but this isn't a rule as much as a tendency.

Thank you for those file that you sent. I finished making the Patriot and do you think it turned out well? You make the best model guns. fav.me/d8v256h

Can't really tell, but the build quality looks good. I would have painted the receiver gray instead of black, though. The gray parts contrast a bit too much.
I really do need to make a drum mag for it, though.

The drum makes up about 40% of the weapon?

I'm sorry to ask this since I don't remember or haven't looked far enough, but have you ever thought about Dante's dual .45 handguns, Ebony and Ivory? The Jackal and Casull just remind me of them since they are similar.

Yes, there have been requests for them. I might make them eventually, dunno.

The originals and not the ones from the reboot?

Although I haven't committed to this project, of course it would be the originals.
