Still some old V3 parts in the "complete" test build up there - it's primarily a test build for the barrel and handguard so I don't waste new receivers on half-baked parts. 
The handguard is troublesome, but I think I have it figured out now. The problem is that you have to be on guard against warping as the glue dries. It's a pretty big part and distortions can really mess it up. 
Despite several test builds of the mag, there are still a few things I'd like to try out, such as making the feed lips a bit more correct. The upper also needs some work, because the bolt carrier doesn't quite fit yet.

As a side note, I've also made a World War I version of the M1911. Besides introducing some of the period-specific features, it incorporates the square guiderail slots and is a slight improvement in overall quality and fit. The base color is also 75-75-75, so it's a nice gray that's not too dark or too light.

Hello Hoborginc,
I've been following you for quite a while to check the m16 progress, and it's simply breath-taking so far.
It really is amazing what a piece of paper can be turned into...

Hey, I check in every once in a while for progress. So far this project is looking amazing! The magazine, the cartridges, the receiver, even somethings as simple as the handguard look great!. on that topic, any chance that an upper and a hanguard could be made to resemble a MK12?. I love your projects and one of the things i'd love to see from you is.. let me stop myself to say that in no way do i mean harm by my statements, nor do i mean to sound entitled) something new, You have multiple assault rifles and carbines, as well as semiautomatic pistols. I would even pay you to cover more ground. Now i know obviously that making these templates isn't easy. I am extremely patient even with my ADD. Sorry if this was bothersome, Thank you for reading, and thank you for all of your fantastic work and determination to give us the best papercraft models that exist.

I've been following your paper models for a long time ago, since you upload the first ak.
Im a big fan of your works on this platform, with such detail and accuracy compared with the real guns. 
Keep going with this stuff, you're awesome!

Hey, I'm just wondering if you have any sniper rifles and/or bullpup guns as the would definitely be very cool.

Hi bro

look red dot? handguards? different handles? barret .50? m203? magnum? S & W? Or something like that someday?
new weapon? new accessories?
please something
I'm your fan

Currently I'm working on the M16A1. May have to do some more test builds here, but the idea is to completely redo the receiver, magazine, etc. New stock and handguard are in the works as well. I'd also like to make the M203 and Colt scope for it, so they're definitely part of this project.

As far as other components, my next project is the Mk 12, so that will involve, at the minimum, new handguard, barrel, and optic. 
No .50 cal or revolver on the horizon yet, however.

Hey, I want to suggest a weapon
the CZ 805 Bren.
His body does not have so many reliefs, I think it's easy.
