    You would have to move the charging handle to the top and make a finned barrel shroud. Ive been working off of photos as it has been several years since I handled the real thing.

    Im going to rework the trigger design after looking at the build going on at weaponeer. I am going to use 1" sq steel tubing and 1/2"x1 1/2" aluminum flat to construct a closer looking trigger group. I got the rough drawings done tonite and ordered the metal from speedy metals. The trigger guard and grip mount will be machined from the aluminum which will in turn be bolted to the 1" sq tubing which will house the hammer, sear, and trigger assy.

    got it together and testfired this evening. Feeds and ejects flawlessly with sticks or drums. I still have to fabricate the sights.

    Looks great, congrats! Are you going with the suomi sights like you had mocked up in the earlier photos?

    Nice work, I like how you did the trigger group housing and trigger gaurd, it blends into the rest of the rifle nicely.
