MPAR V3 Pivot Open by Hoborginc MPAR V3 Pivot Open by Hoborginc
The MPAR is held together by a pivot pin and a breakdown pin, and can open up fairly realistically. (Although the pivot pin is oversized for durability)

The bolt carrier group is a compromise between fidelity, buildability, and sturdiness. It's integrated with the charging handle because otherwise there would be no way to push it forward (except a spring, and I wouldn't require that). It's cut short almost like an LR300's just so it wouldn't get caught on anything, and also because the cylinder is stronger when the front and back walls are closer together.

Inkscape. The early versions were hand-drawn on graph paper, but I've found that vectoring it is a lot more convenient.

I haven't built it because of the weird paper size. It is pretty cool, though, and has always remained an example of what's possible to achieve.

I was primarily inspired by Kamikuzu and Tacome1942, and wanted to find a midpoint between the two in terms of detail vs. simplicity of production.
