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.

I've built two copies of the lower receiver. I'm not quite happy with the movement of the internals yet. A couple of adjustments still need to be made. I'm redoing the grip to more accurately resemble an A1 grip - almost done. Should be pretty easy. I'm also redoing the stock. I had made an M16A1 stock last fall, but, comparing it to a real one, there are a few things incorrect on it, so I'll make a new one.
The rest of it is at 0%.

Untitled by atharxd1  Hey Hoborginc, I managed to complete your AKM-V2 using 80g paper. The dustcover gave me some trouble but overall it turned out better than I thought!

Yeah, the dust cover is pretty difficult - there's no nice way to make it easy. 
Good build!

Yeah, what really surprised me was the fact that I was able to do it at all using 80g (normal everyday thin office printer paper)! Some parts are made from 70g paper which was all I had, and it was less forgiving. Using this paper has it's limitations: I couldn't make a colored build.

Alright, I'll begin assembly of your Casull. Would you like some pictures to see how I did when it's all done?
