AK47 -found objects

I made an AK47 out of found objects. The idea is to make an object that represent the gun's interface, weight and size. For the build I used plywood off cuts and objects I found in second hand bins. I tried not to make it look exactly like the gun. The cocking, safety and trigger had to work. The magazine had to be removable and the whole thing had to be made from found objects. This is the result:

Blank cut out of 19mm plywood

Lead sinkers added the weight

The body is clad in galvanized plate.

The magazine can be removed

The safety and cocking

Threaded bar, electric lugs and painted wood make up the barrel assembly

The magazine clip

The left side of the gun

The "makers" logo

Final gun
