Well, yes, you are correct on all counts. Most people don't get into the M4 variants, just happy enough to know it's an M4.

It looks like they did decent enough research or had a decent consultant advising them.

Does your poplar template feel satisfying in your hand? Think the balance will be good, too?

You’re doing the machining yourself on that? Even if I had the tools I would feel compelled to shorten it bit by bit to try to get comfortable getting the cuts and crowning right before I ended up at my destination.

7.62x39?? Why?

I’m curious what you mean about a slide cut. Google shows what looks like missing material like you’d have with a ported barrel. Pure just talking about removing material to reduce slide weight?
