    My DC-15A rifle project

    Hi
    Recently I started my project to build DC-15A rifle.
    The assumptions of the project:
    - rifle easily fold for transport on a minimum of 3 parts
    - moving trigger gives the possibility of installing electronic system of sound and flashing LEDs in barrel
    - disconnected from the bay slot magazine (magnets)
    Almost all parts are made of 2mm polystyrene (for a perfectly smooth surface, the beveled edges are combined), rifle butt made of wood, aluminum viewfinder.
    I have this idea that because of the length and tension structures, the main body and the barrel is made of aluminum tubes. Such a structure makes it possible to mount the center and front also upside down. In my opinion, the DC-15A should look like that (viewfinder at the top, folding bipod under the barrel). Of course it is option .
    A few photos almost ready-made parts:

    Today, the star of the day was Mr. Mark - turner
    I have received from him parts made of aluminum. Scope body is made up of parts bolted together, and the ring to the handle turns with slight resistance (to the inner ring fits into the gap between parts of the body causing the immobilization of thrust). Rotating the scope is a derivative of the idea of the rotating part of the middle-front of the rifle. The point is that in "upside down" the scope can be rotated so as not to be aimed at the part in front of. The lens on the "trumpet" in front of the scope is ideally suited from the old Soviet photo camera "Smiena" . The rear part of the body is hollow. It will be inside painted black with imitation viewfinder and lens cut from old glasses. Other parts are: cap for the end of the barrel, "ring before the body of the handle" (or whatever it called), and the other parts

    Re: My DC-15A rifle project

    Yesterday I engrave on a laser plotter three plastic plates (2 clear polystyrene, 1 black polystyrene with a metallized layer), which form a view of the viewfinder. The layers are separated by a distance of 3mm. Together, they create a cool 3D effect.
    It is only fitting, but it looks like this:
