3D model description

Ok... the original model is a beautiful work of art. There are, however, several issues with it. After no replies from the designer, I took it upon myself to repair the model and modify it for my own needs and to suit my own tastes.

Changes/Repairs Made:
* Repaired numerous non-manifold errors throughout the STLs.
* Renamed STLs to reflect more correct nomenclature.
* Removed the handle from the bottom of the rail.
* Removed the protrusion from the bottom of the magazine.
* Combined the two stock parts into one piece.
* Thinned the trigger down for a better fit.
* Increased the thickness of lower trigger guard a little bit.
* Resized the inner hole of the rail for a better fit to the barrel.
* Split the barrel and the body in to multiple pieces to allow for printing on 200mm printers.
* Included pins to allow for exact alignment of components.

You will noticed that I have included the original STL for the scope, even though that was not printed (and therefore untested) on my model. How it was meant to be mounted originally, however, I have no idea. As I said, I never got a reply from the designer and I do not see any files included in the original model that would facilitate mounting that piece. I do see where there is an [I Made One] of the original and it includes the scope, so maybe I am missing something. If someone can point out what that something is, I'll be happy to update that as well.
