Modular Paper AR15 V3 by Hoborginc Modular Paper AR15 V3 by Hoborginc
This is an AR-15 papercraft, the third iteration of a long project that has undergone several stages. For the most recent development, see the V3A416.

Current AR V3: 6-17-14 Package
AR V3A416 (Hk416)
AR V3A31 (M4 Carbine) will be released in March, but you can already access some of the new parts below:

Rail Cover 6-Inch (digitized, not in re-release)
ACOG Sight (new, not in re-release)
AN/PEQ-15 (Tan, black, white, not in re-release)
Lower Receiver V3A31 (Dark, tan, white, not in re-release)
V3 Grip 31 for the V3 receiver. It's a realistic-sized grip, similar to the [V4] SCAR grip except compatible with the V3 grip guide.
Hk416 Grip (Better shape and not as oversized)
Upper Receiver V3A31 (Black, gray, tan, white, not in re-release)
Stock SOPMOD (Including new buffer tube)
CAR-15 Stock, fitting the same new buffer tube as the SOPMOD Stock.
Pistol Buffer Tube, short buffer tube without a "ladder" section, meant to be used without a stock.
Barrel V3A31 14.5" for the V3A31 receiver. Also includes new Delta Ring, and, due to its narrower profile, requires the new handguard.
V4 Suppressor  (Attach to narrow-profile barrel instead of the flash hider)
Handguard RIS4 quad-rail handguard for the V3A31 narrow-profile barrel. 
Mag V3A31 20 & 30, very similar to previous magazines, just slightly adjusted for color and dimensions to fit the receiver better.
Sight Triangular for the V3A31 narrow-profile barrel. Also includes sling loop and bayonet lug.

FAQs:

1. What kind of paper does this use?

90lbs/185g
Letter or A4 size. Scale to printable area (don't try to print them at original image size, because they won't match).

5. What do the version numbers mean?

V1 & V2: Old versions, both handmade. The receivers, barrels, and magazines are unique and incompatible with anything else. Some accessories like sights can be interchanged with other versions. Handguards are also cross-compatible, because versions 1 through 3 use barrels with the same thick diameter. However, the design quality of versions 1 and 2 is very poor, so I don't recommend building them.

V3A2: Handmade V3 lower receiver that only accepts V2 (undersized) magazines.

V3: Current version, digitalized and generally better build quality, although with some notable weaknesses, such as the barrel and stock. If a receiver is labeled V3A3, that means it takes V3 magazines. However, there are some slight differences in V3 magazines, so some may fit better than others. V3 magwell has a retaining bar at the back that holds the magazine in place.

V3A416: Hk416 that uses V3 receiver measurements and magazine system. As the two-tone build shows, the receivers are cross-compatible. The main difference is the way the stock attaches (rear ring, buffer tube, and stock) and the way the barrel attaches (it goes into the upper receiver). The upper receiver also fits together better, but, being an Hk416 upper, it is taller only matches the Hk416 handguard. Overall, this is a much stronger model, but retains the unrealistic V3 magazine system.

V3A31: Same magwell and receiver dimensions, but improved buffer tube and barrel, and more realistic minor details. In short, it's an application of the lessons learned from the V3A416 model back to the standard M4 carbine configuration.

V4: Hypothetical next version, with realistic proportions and mag release. Although some of the current parts can be considered "V4" parts, I have barely started actually making a V4 receiver. The stock and barrel will attach similarly to the V3A416. There is no estimated release date.

Here's one that I found. I can't vouch for its buildability, as it seems it crosses several pages, and it doesn't have any colors. But with some creativity, it can probably be built. The actual shapes are there, at any rate.

This one's a bit structurally weak. The Hk416, though, should do fine. It's much stiffer.

Am I supposed to cut any of these circulated parts i.imgur.com/9kgddsM.jpg (stock ctr, pag 1)? I can't really understand what to do here.... if I don't cut any of those it's difficult to make the "serrated" part, and it seems like the buffer tube in the instructions is different from what is printed :/

Leave them connected at the top circle. Cut them apart in the bottom circle.

Man.. This is a nice paper model for it's sturdiness! I'm currently progressing this one, with the M4A1 configuration. I like your paper models (especially the AKM)!! Keep it up!!

Actually it has its weaknesses, especially the stock and the delta ring. If you'd like something sturdier, my Hk416 model is considerably more developed.

Well, for the stock itself, I took 416's SOPMOD stock and buffer tube. I haven't tried the Hk416 yet, but perhaps I'll make it next time.

Hey Hoborg! We've spoken a bit before... I was wondering.
Is it possible... Sorry, wrong wording. With you, it's all possible. Can you attempt to (or know how to) make a rifle, whether it be a sniper or simply buckshot, with a movable bolt catch assembly? Say, I want to build/design/whatever a Thompson bolt action rifle, and I put a spring in the mag, at the bottom, and in the receive opposing the ejection port. Given the correct internals, would the bolt action ass'y work? Work as in "Bullet goes up in receiver when bolt is pulled back; pulls trigger to reset rifle; spring in receiver pushes out shell when bolt is pulled; spring at bottom of mag pushes new bullet up into receiver; new bullet gets chambered when bolt is pushed back". Do you think it'd work right? If so, could you add that to your request roster?
A little bit of bribery Devilish , if you design it all (not make it, just design it), I'll give you $50. It'll be CAD, but it's all I got. If you're American, I'm sorry. Sad dummy

It's possible, but it would be difficult because it would require a claw-like extractor on the bolt. This is a very small part that would need a very small spring. Also, it would require a lot of trial and error to get it to function smoothly. Tacome1942 can do this consistently with a combination of papier-mache and incorporating some metal parts, but I haven't quite reached that level yet.

For now, I have neither the opportunity nor the intention to build something like this. After all, even my simplest papercraft projects are currently at a standstill due to outside pressures. However, I will consider it as a future goal, to be attained several years from now through the natural process of iteration and improvement.

Ah. I see. Well, best of luck with your projects and said pressure! :) (Smile) And I appreciate you having thought about it; that means so much to a guy like me who gets ignored so much because of my seemingly irrealistic ideas.

I'd love to see a ACR, with magpul accessories. (IE:MVG or AFG, don't know if you could actually do the magpul MBUS outta paper), or going off your scar-l make a modification and have the SCAR-H platform!
