Ah, the second test build is definitely better. I think it counts as progress. A few things still need to be adjusted, though, and there are still improvements to be made, particularly on the stock, the internals, and the bolt carrier. 

If anyone is interested, the AK-74 construction images (instructions) have been uploaded to my scraps, showing the similarities and differences to previous models. At 65 pages, the instructions are definitely more detailed than the AKM's 48 pages of instructions. The patterns themselves are 30 pages, only one more than the 29 pages of the AKM V2. The extra one comes from the extra layers on the receiver walls. They're not quite done yet. I need to build a third test build before being able to declare them as done. Then they'll be good for release. Let me know if you want the provisional patterns to try, though. 

If you're concerned that the color of the wood is too bright, don't worry, I'm toning it back down, to a midpoint between the first and second test builds, and slightly darkening the grip as well.



As a side note, here are a few AR parts:



Front Side Sling Swivel - Common on military M4s, it's simply a sling loop that attaches to the side of the barrel, inside the triangular front sight.

M68 Close Combat Optic (Comp M4) - Not merely a remake of the old Comp M2, this is a newer and more capable optic. Unlike the ACOG's light tube, this has a battery compartment. It also comes with a filter, which is challenging to make, but it's optional.

Mk18 Fixed Rear Sight - I had an old version of this which wasn't very good. Now it's redone and good to go.

Unfortunately, that would be quite outside my scope of competency. It's really not the sort of thing I would normally make.

I'll add it to the request tracker. That's a new one.
However, I can't promise making it in the near future, unfortunately.

Да, когда вернусь к серии АК, сделаю дополнительные аксессуары, в том числе и глушитель, скорее всего ТГП-А.

Hey Hoborginc,
Just a small question out of curiosity:
What new 'ground-breaking' features would you incorporate into the fourth iteration of the AR receiver?
I really find it impressive that there's so much one can do with a piece of paper!
