Default Norinco R4/R5 Updated

Found a virgin R4 stock and got some paint on

It seems my freight train of hunters has finally been depleted lol

Here is the last one I had kicking around that I've been picking at.
Threw some weld and parts at it.

In the 2nd set of pics R5 copycat.
After seeing what Austin did with his gas block I decided it was a great idea.

I've only seen one hunter a couple of years ago. Wish I had put it instead of other stupid stuff on a credit card

Thank you sir! I will say I've had my fill of hunters. But it was the most cost effective way to get Galil variants in 7.62x39. I hear new options are in the works though.
