It is easily constructed from readily available materials, primarily steel tubing; it does not require a lathe and milling machine and it can be built by just about anyone in about a week. Having said that, the academic interest in this gun is just to see how simple it is to build a gun, and in turn, how impossible it is to prevent the manufacture of weapons by simply passing a law. Everything is made using hand tools such as hacksaw and file. Normally accepted things such as rifling in the barrel and sights are simply eliminated.
One final comment. Luty is a threat to the public, but judging from what the British government has had to say about him, he is still a threat, I would say a mortal threat, to the status quo, vis-a-vis British gun laws. I have read Bill Holmes. I have read Metral. The lack of a rifled barrel makes that possible. The instructions did require a thorough reading and re-reading, in my case, before I really "got it", but aside from a few minor spelling and grammatical errors, they were very clear, step-by-step, and concise, while of sufficient detail to properly demonstrate the concepts involved.
The author provides cutting templates, and all the needed specifications for the the necessary materials. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the subject of improvised firearms. I will not be building this firearm, nor would I advocate that to anyone else. But I think such books are vitally important because they make it clear to politicians that such things are possible and keep them all just that little bit fearful of what the general populace might do if they ever go too far.
I think a little bit of that sort of fear in the back of the minds of those in power is a healthy thing for a free society interested in remaining free. So long as it is there, the instructions in Mr. Truly an amateur-centric guide to a 9mm automatic A Customer on Aug 23, Just as advertised, all you need are files, drill although drill press is desirable, and tap set.
Also real photos and not just diagrams to reflect the real thing. A material list and supplier list would have been a plus. More testimonies would be further enlightening. Useful to those with a bit of technical skill. A Customer on Jul 13, This book is great, with precise diagrams and photographs, however the material is certainly not for the layperson, although given enough time almost anyone could fabricate a device. The quality is almost certainly horrible, as they are simply composed of basic plumbing.
This gun could be assembled using tools that most people have laying around or are cheap to buy at any toolshop, but a few power tools would speed up the process. Highly Recommended Excellent, but not complete By on Oct 17, I gave this book 4 stars because it is not complete in certain parts. If you wanna make your weapon, buy both books, focus on building the weapon explained in the Expedient Homemade Firearms, and add to it the important details described on Do-It-Yourself book.
Outstanding account of how to build a gun in a hurry. Not according to the author. My sympathies to the author for the harsh price he is paying for completing this book. Or was that banned as well? The material presented is easy to understand, and the accompanying photographs and templates offer great visual aides. I am not a machinist, but after reading this book a couple of times I feel confident that given enough effort almost anyone in fact could produce the desired results.
Luty not giving enough information on the finish work of this gun, and to that i have to say"its an expedient firearm for self defence in areas where you otherwise would not be able to procure a gun legally or for within your budget! All the facts A Customer on Oct 03, Very informative book. All the stuff you need is in there for academic study.
It would have been nice to see sources in which to purchase the metal. There are a lot online for bulk supply, but I could only find one - "onlinemetals.
This is the ONE book that has actual instructions on how one would go about building a working firearm without a machine shop. The only annoyances are a few listings of metric measurements when referring to aome material that is a standard i. Normally I am a stickler for these things, but due to the fact tht this book delivers on its claims warrants a high rating. Given the instability of the nations of the world, this is a very valuable book for the aware citizen. Great book!
It is written from the standpoint that no gunsmithing supplies are available. The gun is constructed from tubing and hardware products with a good deal of inginuity and inventivness.
If you are interested in homemade fireams this is the book. I can also recommend the authors website,which is well worth a look at [ With a few mods could easily be a legal gun By K. Boyer on Apr 05, With certain exceptions a firearm may be made by a non-licensee provided it is not for sale and the maker is not prohibited from possessing firearms.
However, a person is prohibited from assembling a non-sporting semi-automatic rifle or non-sporting shotgun from imported parts. An application to make a machine gun will not be approved unless documentation is submitted showing that the firearm is being made for a Federal or State agency.
Making it a full auto weapon would be illegal not as a semi-auto. So making a few mods to this gun to qualify as a sporting gun would be easy enough for anyone with a brain so DON"T listen to people saying building your own gun is illegal check the ATF website yourselves not bad By Andrew H on Jan 03, Definitely lacking information.
Author wants you to remove paper templates and trace them so you know where to cut. They could have included an 11x17 with the part to scale. I was hoping it had dimensions, but it does not. By Samantha on Aug 25, Got for my brother, arrived in good shape. Necessary in the times in which we live By Oef Vet on Sep 08, This is an excellent resource, to be able to produce a fully automatic or semi-automatic firearm from readily available household items is a must.
To see a 5x increase in some gun prices in four months was clearly panic buying knowing democrats will one day target guns and those who practice those freedoms as problem and will one day move against them again has become a reality. This book will ensure one will be able to take power back and ensure one will have the knowledge to practice those freedoms without regard to government policies or interventions, should it become necessary to do so. More information on quality would be appreciated.
This is a glimpse into how firearms work. Price on Feb 02, I would really recommend this book if you are concerned about the direction of the 2nd amendment or the communist take-over of the USA. It is accurate and quite easy to understand. Would recommend to anyone Excellent for the Home Gunsmith. By Fuzzbean on Feb 14, I have my doubts about the longevity in use of a gun constructed from this book, but the book is more professionally written and more thorough than I have come to expect in this genre.
There is certainly a lot of ingenuity shown here, and it is believable that the plans could result in a workable gun. This book is definitely worth study.
