Post homemade guns, how-to's or shit you made yourself. This one I made, only fires blanks but is nice and loud.
I put a wooden grip on it because sometimes powder flashes out the back and burns my hand.
A friend and I did but there is a section in the middle of the barrell that has less diameter of the rest so the bullet had to squeeze through. It got through first shot but it was really dangerous and we stopped
Just joking we didn't stop. I milled out the section in the middle of the barrell and we've shot about 100 rounds through it. Only .22's but they make noise. I am going to stop shooting it though. I am planning on cutting it up. I don't want it anymore.
It also blows out the primers after firing. That's why the powder comes out the back sometimes. It splits the shells too because the barrell is about 0.5 mm too big.
And today OP was not a fag.
From beginning to sensible end.
After seeing this I personally think there should be no excuse for not having a personal shoebox shooting range.
I never drew up the plans, I just made it, really. Here are all the pieces except for the bolt. The bolt won't come out because I stupidly tightened the nut on the back too much which mis-shaped the tube at the ent. The bolt won't come out anymore.
The U.S. government takes tampering with evidence very seriously. A person who is convicted of the crime under federal law may face a prison sentence of not more than 20 years, a fine, or both. (18 U.S.C. § 1519.)
>turning 10 years into 30 years
For something that fires blanks? Lel, those fucking cartridges were shit that were fired from an old, old, old .22 single shot. I doubt anything I made could take 100 rounds. Are you the cunt patrol? The barrel has holes drilled in the side for gas expelled when a blank is fired.
>not knowing anything about US gun laws
>reporting shit anyway
Well I guess some ATF agent will get a good laugh when they read their email.[spoiler]It's legal to make your own handguns in the US. [/spoiler]
> Any weapon or device capable of being concealed on the person from which a shot can be discharged through the energy of an explosive;
>A pistol or revolver having a barrel with a smooth bore
>Such term shall not include a pistol or a revolver having a rifled bore
If OP rifled the bore, he's OK. Seeing as he designed it to fire blanks, and rifling a bore is a whole 'nother matter than putting together some spare bits, I'd say he's in shit.
You know, now that you made your own gun, you can easily get your Operator's license. Just send that pic as proof to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address, the ATF will surely send you your Operator's license in a jiffy knowing that you're making your own guns!

It was posted 1 minute after the question, then >>22226291 even replied to it >>22226302 then OP replied saying he is getting rid of it anyway >>22226304, you should work on that reading comprehension friend. Call bullshit all you want, doesn't make you any less wrong.
Dear Hobby Lawyers, LEO Apologists, Government Sheeple!
Please grow one of those so-called "Penises". Then you might be able to stop sucking off the police state.
those who are commonly referred to as "men"
These cocksuckers would probably do the same to John Moses fucking Browning as well.
less sucking state dick more homemade guns pls
Any good guides other than http://martinfrost *dot * ws/htmlfiles/june2007/imhv3.pdf ? I'm going to start building one next week
Also what are some essential tools other than welder and saws?
Small scale black powder (matchhead) guns sound like a fun hobby.
A stick of incense for a mini matchlock mechanism fuse.
I'm thinking single bb, birdshot muskets, and coarse beach sand shotguns.
Run my own range on my desk, 2-4 feet long.
Thinking some drilled out gummy bears filled with "snap pops" could make for interesting reactive targets or a jello mold GI Joe.
Maybe a few lines of old Christmas lights and tails lights to break out like bottles.
Some anon posted a note from wheat saying that if the note was posted, then wheat was dead or in jail.
I personally suspect that Wheat decided to go anon again, and it was really he who posted that note.
Notice the floor is the same.
I don't know man. I have this bad feeling about the whole deal.
>one of the most productive tripfags, building stuff and taking requests like once a week
>comes back a month later and seems depressed, starts talking about wild shit like killing himself and "sorting out business" or something like that
>goes god knows where in Cambodia(?) for reasons unknown
>some time later an anon posts a message from him
Also didn't his gf die or something? I immediately thought that his gf was killed in Cambodia or something and he went there to hunt the killers down, hence the "sorting out business" and got killed/jailed doing it. But then again I watch way too many movies.
And I really don't see why he would suddenly want to go anon. He was well liked and all.
His sister was robbed, beaten and raped in Cambodia and killed herself soon after coming back home because of it. This happened around the end of June and early July. I am assuming we are talking about the same guy here, too many coincidences to not be the same guy.
I bet you guys didn't know Wheat was a contributor in /lit/ and /ck/ too, though there he was just another anon. Used to Skype with him and some other anons about wines and preparing fish. Of course it is up to you whether you want to believe me or not.
Too bad he had to go the way he did.
I'm sure we will never know the entire truth.
By the way, can someone share the infographs on making the Wheats 9mm pistol? I don't have it on my laptop. The .22 and other stuff made by him would also be greatly appreciated.
I think I have all the ones he posted here, but they're scattered in random folders on my random HDDs. I'll make a zipfile of them all when I get the spare time.
The guy didn't upload any plans. It's pretty neat though. It's a .357 semi auto carbine that takes deagle brand deagle magas IIRC. It's called the "critter gitter". Check Weaponsguild.
Anyone else seen these fun little things?
The simple mechanism is pretty strong.
Are muzzle loaders still "not firearms" in your state?
Here are some black powder guns I made when I was like 12. They were fired like canons with old fireworks fuses. Although I later upgraded the big black one to a matchlock. I even managed to hunt some crows and pigeons with it. I typically just loaded it with 1 .44magnum case of black powder, a piece of cork or several layers of cardboard as a wad, then a .44magnum case of BBs and some crumpled up paper to keep it all in place.
Over all it was a bit weaker than a .410 but it worked.
If I had needed to hunt to survive, that piece of shit would have kept me alive.
The barrel on the big one is perilously thin copper plumbing tube. But I proof tested it and it held up, so I guess it was safer than it looked.
The barrel on the little one ismuch thicker, made of brass, and fires homemade 6mm lead slugs. The power is on par with a .22lr but it's insanely inaccurate and unpractical. I've only fired it like 5 times.
I lost the big one somewhere in the woods. I think I might still have the little one, but I can't remember where. I think I might have lost it in a move but I'm not sure.
Please excuse the shitty photo. It was taken about 10 years ago with a digital camera that was already old and obsolete.
The type of zipgun OP built seems pretty popular. I went though my images and found like 7 others.
It's a pretty simple design, I imagine it has been around forever.
I've seen pics of zipguns like this from the 20s so you're probably correct.
Man, what is with our productive trips going off to far-flung countries with some big goal or ambition and dying suddenly? Why did Salesman 2.0 have to die in Syria? Why'd Wheat have to go die in a (likely heroic and Hollywood-worthy) trip to Cambodia? Shit, man.
Here is one of my schematics for an 'airsoft' AR 15 sentry gun.
Like I said, even though it has a recoil slide and is capable of controlling a real AR 15, it is of course only for Airsoft, and by using it on an actual firearm you are committing a felony.
Besides this mount (and eventually I'll post the pan+cabinet) you will need:
>possibly solar cells
Follow these instructions for the electronics side.
I will post detailed plans, as well as the gcode for anyone who wants to make it properly out of Al 7075
Here is someones example of their paintball version. Their actual mount is too weak imo.
It's the same software, so it does demo what it can do.
My recoil sled would need recalculated. Right now I have it so the spring would give it the perfect resistance so that a high pressure 5.56 wouldn't damage the set up. a .410 would probably need a tenser string.
The mount on this is pretty sick. The front half slides on the lower rail on a quad rail, and it bolts to the rear section which is slid all the way on a milspec buffer tube. It's literally perfect for an AR 15.
.410's actually have significantly less muzzle energy than a 5.56x45, so assuming you're using a semi-automatic shotgun (Hell, there are .410 AR-15 uppers if you want), it might not require it.
>Year of our lord two thousand and fourteen
>Not using lynx
Some are, some aren't. It all depends on whether or not it would be easy to convert them to magazine feed. For example if you made a STEN without the magazine cut out it would still be an MG. But if you made your own design and it was clear you never intended it to be magazine fed (no feed ramp, no magazine clearing on the bolt ect...) they're usually OK with it. There are like 4 guys on Weaponsguild and the Homegunsmith forums that have gotten theirs approved by the authorities.
