    I'm back. I am the OP but lost my original login info so I just made a new SN. The cocking tube assembly is not complicated at all. The G3 tube insert and lever are unmodified and the shortened AK piston has an angle ground into the leading edge to ensure it doesnt jam on the back of the insert. This thing kinda works now. It will feed and chamber individual rounds but not while firing. I think it needs to have a ramp cut into the bottom of the chamber like a semi-auto pistol. The chamber is currently fully supported so a little bit of a radius will probably be ok. I only test fire it at my ranch, (which is 5 hours away) so progress between test fires and modifications has been SLOW. Going on three years slow... If you want pics of anything specific, let me know.

    It's about time. We were about to send out the posse!

    Do you have a good picture of how all those parts line up? I've never found any good pictures of the G3 bits.

    I feel your pain...

    I forgot to take close-ups of the cocking handle yesterday, but I'll do it tonight. Here's what the rifle looks like right now. I had to start with a new receiver due to warpage (that makes receiver #3...) so I havent installed the safety in this one yet.

    Sharpest Afroman,
    Can you show us some more of the modified rate-reducer as left-side-safety?

    wow. i admit this is giving me some really good ideas.

    one is a somewhat smaller diameter gas piston rod (without the piston head). why? so a sleeve can be fitted into the gas tube. between the sleeve and gas tube would be a spring so the non reciprocating handle could return to the ready position. i know it sounds complicated right?
