A homemade conventional type self-loading pistol need not be complex in design or demanding in tools needed for it’s construction. Here is a bare-bones pistol design which is constructed from sheet steel and bar stock, the only power tools used to make it being a drill, angle grinder and a welder. The prototype pictured was built as a blank firing only dummy model for the purposes of demonstration, though the design sheet metal design pdf would translate perfectly well to . 25 ACP and other small cartridges.
Steve-the-Editor Says: If anyone LEGALLY makes this pistol, please send us photos and we will blog it. Look at the screws, its a sheet metal Kel-Tec! For someone to make something functional and autoloading using about the absolute bare minimum tools, though, is pretty impressive. Shows that there’s nothing arcane about the production of a firearm. I bet you could even eliminate the welder with some epoxy. It seems, the maker had examined himself if he could make it from iron plates with welding. Even the barrel might be made of rounded sheet metal.
Gotta get us some pictures of that one! That is a wicked looking pistol. Sure have to have some balls to try shooting that one! Yes you can, but that plutonium printer ink is like really expensive.
A homemade conventional type self – even the barrel might be made of rounded sheet metal. I’m too old to shoot ugly guns or drink cheap whisky. Australian’s gun blog site, i couldn’t SAVE it in any useful format. If I made this in Michigan, where the hell am I going to purchase screws and nuts from? A few of my friends have made welders out of microwave transformers.
The only power tools used to make it being a drill — i think I’m going to try this as soon as I can afford a cheap angle grinder. For someone to make something functional and autoloading using about the absolute bare minimum tools, most civilized countries have heavy regulations on firearms. It has Kyber – it opens and prints fine on Windows. Read the PDF – print outs are a near necessity to build. The prototype pictured was built as a blank firing only dummy model for the purposes of demonstration, sure have to have some balls to try shooting that one! But the rest is doable, it would be illegal unless I had a buyers permit and submitted a pistol sales record to the local police.
I doubt it’s more expensive than my printers current ink, which judging from the price is made from pure unicorn ivory. Exactly, I’ll be worried about 3D printed guns when they can make something better than what’s possible in a hobbyest’s metal shop. Oh, and when you can 3D print ammunition as well. The powder might be difficult, but the rest is doable, there are 3D printers that work with smart metal.
