<div class="bbWrapper">So I got the file off of thingiverse by oddworks, it was listed as a ma5b but looks like the ma5d if I remember correctly, anyways I’ve made a good bit of progress before this post so far. As of right now I need to get more material to continue, wait times are longer due to the virus so here’s what I have so far.<br /> <br /> First image is the 7.62 ammunition, compared to an actual bullet, and second is the assorted parts so far, just being held together by friction. I will go into more detail about the moving parts when I get home</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">Hey guys, I’m lazy when it comes to work in progress updates, but I felt motivated after seeing how far into my build I am! All of it is printed, just got a ton of post processing and then finally paint once my airbrush is in. One is it just a test fit assembly, the other is where I’m at now.</div>

There’s housing for a counter, but I wonder if I need to get a kit or try from scratch</div>
