    Perfect construction. I know real folding stocks are large enough to fit around the full width of an assault rifle. I think making these slightly thinner would not only fit better in your toy soldier’s arms, but would look much more “in scale”, despite the bulky nature of the plastic lasgun.

    Do try it Sean, its a bit tricky but practice makes perfect.
