I dream of a diy gun. Mag fed pump action. Bolt together reciever built in layers like a masterlock. All steel rifled shotgun adapter barrel held in place with hardware store pipe adapters. Hand carved or 3d printed handles. Able to be made with simple hand tools. Still working out the details.
>>41424087This is the "critter gitter". It is a well documented project. Straight blowback semiauto in .357 mag that takes deagle mags with a surplus barrel. A 10 mm version that takes glock mags, a short barrel and wrist brace is on a personal bucket list. Not just to have but to have built from scratch kinda bucket list.
>>41424087It's a singleshot 410 that you have to screw and unscrew the barrel to load it, made it in about 3 hours, the only power tool used was a drill and the barrel is made out of some couplings I found at my local hardware store. I don't have it now because the wood cracked after about 2 or 3 boxes of shells
>>41424453Jesus fucking christ anon, use pipe for a barrel or something.
>>41424453Nice! Never done a pistol yet. A single shot autoeject blowback .22 has always caught my eye. Here is a shot of a personal version of ye olde slam bang pipegun. If you look close you can see its a twist snap not a trombone style slammer. Gives much more accurate shots but I can't do the flip the barre,l reload and blow out the old wad trick with it. however it is very easy to swap out barrels. Good for survival hunting/ casual plinking this way.
>>41424878I wanted to but I live in a small village and I couldn't find the size that would fit a 410 shot shell so I had to work with what I could findYou can't imagine how frustrating it is having to make stuff work out of literal trash
>>41425038Necessity is the mother of invention anon.
>>41424942It's really nice I hope I could build a rifle as well but were I live we are only allowed to have shotguns
>>41425113Bolts and pipes. Want to get back to this with a 12 gauge to 38 special adapter for a bolt action carbine.
>>41425164NiceI'm now trying to make plans for a full auto 410 sbs but there are a lot of mechanical issues to be solved yet and I also have to find a way to make a proper barrel
>>41425139That's intended to be a shotgun too. Made from 3/4 inch pipe. More 3d sketching that a prototype. Just never saw any good "hardware store" bolt actions. Lets be honest. Still haven't. But it was time well spent in a shop with trash. Still think there is a secret sauce with plumbing pipe and caliber adapters Luty would be proud of.
>>41425215The most important thing is to make sure it shoots and that it won't explode in your face. Looks doesn't matter. Just remember two things when building homemade stuff. First don't try to improve something that already works fine and second don't expect it to work from the first time. That's what my experience has taught me.
>>41424087welded this thing together once, also ammo is self made. primer is armstrong mix, propellant matchhead powder. 0.4 gramm of propellant are good for about 10 gramm of shot, its not rocketscience. Im only testing a primer in vid related
>>41425414haha thx, first gun was a slamfire pipe gun with an screwable "firing pin" so to say, in case ammo gets stuck i can unscrew it and clean the pipe. Same ammo. for the revolver i can use the axis as an ejector since its 7 same sized pipes welded together. Its probably not a revolver but a pepperbox (actual pepperboxes are rotated and single fire, not like volleyguns) took some figuering out until i got it right. wanted to make a barrelbreak revolver first, but researching ammo made me realise its safer for me not to have a barrel behind the cylinder since i could get chainfires with this ammo, you can see sparks going everywhere.
>>41424185>built in layers like a masterlock How is that better than using a pipe?
>>41425381My bad I was responding to the wrong comment. That was in regards to the bolt action pics. When it comes to the twist snap shotgun its about as safe as it can get. Double wall black pipe (barrel + receiver), carriage nut pressed into pipe used for shoulder stock. Recoil drives straight back into the stock. A solid steel bolt with a firing pin brazed on for a breech face and a steel bolt straight through everything locking it all with the handle. No pipe thread cap BS here! There is not much that can go wrong with it. The twist snap even lets you move it around loaded with confidence it wont go off if its bumped.
>>41425491Hard to cram a reciever, magwell and trigger system in a pipe alone. A layered bolt together receiver can be built layer by layer with handtools. The idea is no weld or lathe needed design. There is an AR design already out, can even be 3d printed. Lower calibers need some attention too.
>>41425491its only better cause this guy doesnt have a access to real metal supply or tools so hes making do with some random thin piece of scrap.even his reasoning is questionable oh you cant fit all that in a pipe. why not? different size pipes exist. just buy a bigger pipe.
All you need is sheet metal
DIY weapons made from scratch are interesting shit to see how resourceful people can be.But unless you are desperate to have gun to hunt for food or something, I wouldn't recommend actually doing anything more sophisticated than i.e. single shot shotgun from really thick walled plumbing pipe.Guns are not watches or pens, if something goes wrong it is likely to go boom in users hands. And hospital staff is required to report things like that.Ok if you have proper knowledge, skills, tools and materials, but it's not really DIY at that point.
Anyone know how to engrave guns DIY?
>>41426360Were they moving the laser etcher by hand or some shit?
I don't have access to real ammo (i still live with family) so this guns are straight up primitive. I use black powder loads and a fuse to ignite then (even if i'm build something that uses primers rn
>>41426510Got a video of one of the guns, the caliber is approx. 7.65: https://youtu.be/BPDpC5BBD7M
>>41426360get a dremel and mark out what you want with sharpie, the cut it, even with no practice you could do better than that
>>41426510Why not drive to walmart and but shotgun shells?underage?
>>41426751Nope, just italian lmaoYou can't buy ammo if you don't have a licence
>>41426492It's made of shotguns, silly.
>>41425038Its good for what you wanted, creativity with what little you have on hand will get you far.
>>41427645why isn't topless rangetime a porn genre? Take the women out of those odd "wrestling" lesbian bdsm videos, give them some training and make it a competition to get best score, then the obligatory porn.
>>41427316It looks way shittier at that resolution. Even knowing what it is supposed to look like, I still can't help but see certain parts as just really shittily-done. The manky-ass words don't help.
I’ve always wanted to build something pic related.That collapses for storage.
>>41424942Do you have a diagram of that action (or how the receiver/barrel mesh)?
>>41429643Its a 4 winds slambang shotgun.Hes just got some aditional furniture and a ring to stop over insertion. Well not stop but it has to be in a certain orientation to fully slam.
>>41428507You can. Just buy pic related and an airsoft fmg9.
>>41426789based spaghettibro, may AISI niggers never catch you
>>41426789If you can't buy ammo you can also try making one of pic related. I never tried it because I can't find black powder anywhere but it looks like it should work.
>>41429948You just made me paranoid
>>41429975When i go to work i'll show some sketches of three rifles that in paper should work, if interested
>>41429997well it's not like this isn't just a LARP, right? : ^)besides, I'm sure you already know how to deal with glowniggers, so it's only as much of a problem as you let it be
>>41427645https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_l_-_AwvBYThis is the first thing I thought of when I saw that pic. Totally worth the cop a feel.
It is just a LARP, yeahAlso muzzleloaders are clear to buy without a licence here, so
>>41430102>also muzzleloaders are clear to buy without a license herenope, you need a loicense for antiques as wellffs you need one for swords and shit if they are not just wallhangerst. another italian
>>41430138Well shit then i'll just get a licence this summer
>>41426352god youre a fucking pussy. Are you gonna go into a rant about how "only properly trained personel should be allowed to carry guns!'Let me ask you a simple question you dickless fuck, how precisely do you think the inventors of firearms were trained in gunsmithing? I bet it was the same instructor who taught steve wozniak how to build a PC. People like you are the opposite of innovation and invention
>>41424185>still working on the detailsMy faith in you guys to make anything at all has gone down to nothing over the years. Please, please someone impress me, even a little.
>>41424349Where's this from?
>>41430372So tell me does HK sell their unique guns for civilian use like IWI? Or do they just sell their pistols and ARs? I'd think that'd be the people secretly against citizens having guns.
>>41431041Is this a joke
>>41431234So long as IWI sells their Tavor and HK doesn't sell their G36 I'm right and you're wrong anon :)
>>41424087I've had a few things tinkering around. This is a simplified STEN pistol, with a wooden lower and pinned in barrel AK style.The bolt might be the hard part to design because of it being blowback, but I'm sure there are real world illustrations that can be found. Also, the ejector would be screwed in like on a Moseberg 500, or maybe an 870.
>>414314892/?Locking breech 5.56. The picture is self-explanitory. Bolt handle locks into a recess in the upper. The spring might need to be in the rear of the receiver, though. And also figuring out a proper side plate to coordinate the bolt throw.
>>414315123/3This one is my favorite and the one I'm spending the most time to perfect.Blowback STG. Just the STEN pistol, but scaled up. And the weight of the bolt can be used for both 7.92x33 and 30 carbine.
>>41431567As a bonus, a 3-barrel pistol design. Taken straight from the Improvised Munitions Handbook. Chambered in 22 LR or possibly 25 acp.The problem might be the trigger mechanism, but you could use hooks from a door lock for this one.
>>41424087oh shit I spilled something
>>41426510Salve, my fellow hobbyist!I had the same problem when I was underage. The only alternatives I can think of is powder from blanks (higher pressure level, so be careful) or ground up matches mixed with the striker compound (but not ground all at once, it will explode on you)I mean, black powder is basically part fuel (charcoal), part high-explosive (sulfur), and part low explosive (saltpeter / potassium nitrate)
>>41431639sulfur isn't even an essential part for black powder as long as you can figure out a reliable ignition method, which makes sourcing the stuff even easier
>>41431639Hey! Thanks for the tips!Armstrong loads are a thing i'm working on, but i didn't even considered blanks to be an alternative until now.I'm also thinking about a caplock with homemade percussion caps, that would be more fun to use than a fuse as ignition method.Also what are you thinking about a caplock falling block rifle?
>>41425394>It's not rocket scienceAmmunition literally is.
>>41431786I don't have much information on falling blocks, but I think it can be done if the space between parts is as airtight as possible. And with a way to lock the lever in place, like on a Sharps rifle or a Winchester 1895.As for musket caps, I've heard about guys using soda can material and putting a toy cap on it (if you have access to Strike anywhere matches, the white compound is a decent substitute). You can also just use the cap itself, if it's a cupped type that goes on a toy revolver. But the primers are corrosive, as a word of caution.
>>41431833Not him, but I can agree with that. Especially if you're wanting to fabricate bottlenecked casings. And don't get me started on magazines.
>>41431786If you can easily obtain blanks, just use the blank cartridge case and primer as-is. Take the blank powder out and replace with black or armstrong. Either seat the bullet in the case (restricts you to same caliber) or just push a wad in to keep the powder charge in place, and load the bullet and charged case separately. Possible to have a large bore and small chamber -- muzzle-load the bullet/shot, breech-load the propellant charge.Or a small bore and large chamber -- you'll need a tool to seat the bullet through the chamber into the barrel throat, then chamber the propellant charge behind it.
>>41431866I would use a magnet to lock the lever, and i would use probably a firecracker, to stay light on pressure
>>41424349ITT/k/omando meme magic
>>41431915I think I'm seeing what you mean. Kind of like a gallery load or 22 CB. That wouldn't be too bad of an idea. Also, if we're talking about a caplock, I don't think the block would need to be under much pressure because the end of the barrel pretty much seals it up as is, with the exception of maybe some slight gas let-off softly blowing at you (hence the falling block part, and not a 100% inline gun).
>>41431967That's the main thing to not have access to actual ammo. You need to be a lot more creative with the designs
>>41425215One idea I found was that 1/2" inch pipe can actually accommodate a 28 gauge shell with slight reaming of the chamber. Almost a better chamber seal than 3/4" pipe to 12 gauge.And the recoil of a 28 gauge is somewhat similar to a 30-30 Winchester (10-12 ft/lbs of recoil)
>>41432000I hear you on that one. I'm the anon who mentions Volkssturm guns from time-to-time. Making something tangible from nothing has always been a great passion of mine.
>>41432073I feel you, based crafty anon
>>41427316>never again>as if it happened at all
>>41431354>Jews being more concerned about making money than Germshmmm
>>41431631Here man use my paper towel
>>41432308Not the same person nor is that an argument. Enjoy repo and pre ban HK firearms because they're afraid US citizens will give them a bad name if a G3, G36 or anything not an AR or pistol is ever used in a shooting.
>>41431866>>41431786You anons don't understand how these design concepts work
>>41430625There's a thread about it on the WeaponsGuild forum.
>>41432827I will, thanks.
I just finished remaking my pistol. Not sure if I will put a trigger guard or not. What do you think
>>41434524Forgot the pic. I'm fucking stupid
>>41434316Does it use a weighted linear hammer? Looks neat.
>>41434947It's hammer fired and uses a standard AR15 trigger group.
>>41435215I need more info on this>Deagle mag>AR trigger packWhat else goes into building one of these?
>>41426492Gotta reduce production costs
>>41431833It literally isn't. Projectiles are not rockets.
>>41436021Baby's first solid rocket fuel is literally black powder, though.
>>41424087>This is legal under the 1st amendmentthis isn't 100% true btw. spreading them outside the US is a crime iirc.
>>41437264Yes. If you say something like this on the internet and someone in Europe sees it, it gets into problems with import/export laws since it's illegal there.
>>41424087I want build a 3D printed gun that shoots an explosive pellet
>>41432827>nor is that an argumentwhat are you, an ancap?
>>41431833Powder is, ammo isn't.
>>41435215What keeps the bolt locked then? Or is it just straight blowback?
>>41440216Yup straight blowback. The whole thing is a beautify simple design. Been around for a long time I always wonder why it isn't more popular. The original was made before the market was flooded with AR parts. Imagine it with furniture.
>>41428507that's fucking sex
>>41440291That bolt must be the heaviest thing in that gun then, wow.
>>41441931The bolt in a Sten was something like 2 pounds, so not unreasonable.
>>41435215I'm not going to lie, that's awesome.>>41435977My guess is that it's a mix between an AR, a STEN, and a few elements from the AK and AR-7.>single piece of tubing >connected to the barrel via pinned and pressed trunnion, like an AK or G3>AR type lower (a guy on YouTube made his own from sheet metal a while back ago. It's actually pretty straightforward)>tube fabricated with a dremel to include a charging handle slot and ejection port>Bolt is a solid piece of metal, modelled after the STEN, but with slots cut to accommodate an AR trigger group and firing pin >straight blowback, so an extractor might not be necessary (If not, the bolt can be cut for one, similar to one on a Hi Point or regular 22)>ejector welded or screwed on the back of the mag, like on an Owen SMG
>>41444223Interesting. Will definitely note that down.Also bump. I don't wanna see my favourite thread be dead
>>41444711I'm with you. I like learning from some of you guys, as a way of expanding and revising what I already know. And I just learned in a recent podcast Ian did, the AK was actually conceived in a similar, peer-reviewed way.
>>41434542I think a trigger guard might be fine. And maybe clean up the edges and hardware store look. I can actually see that looking a bit like a Welrod with a Single Action Army type handgrip.
>>41425394What I've noticed with revolving designs is that it's a bit easier to fabricate one from a single piece of round bar stock, with a drill press and a dremel. I think I saw handmade guns like that in a Russian film before (Brat 1997 with Sergei Bedrov)A harmonica pistol would be pretty cool to see too.
>>41425139Would that include rifled, Foster slugs? I mean, it's not precision accurate, but it helps extended the range of fire and consistency.
>>41445190Bet they could sleeve the whole top half in a thin tube maybe a machined flashlight body (maglight?). A dip of black plastic dip for the handle and its about spot on.
>>41445332Now that I look at it, that's true. I don't know much about the rubber / plastic dipping process, though (I'm used to spray paint and enamel baking). But if you're confident with the idea, go for it.
>>41445332ban flashlight things that go up
>>41445190>>41445332I finished it a couple hours ago. This is how it looks now. Put a trigger guard and some tape from a tennis racket on the grip
>>41445257everyone his own, for me figuiring out all this myself (nogunz) i came to the conclusion that welding 7 pipes together is the simpliest solution. ive no standpress.
Made this to deal with the tanks constantly on my front lawn
>>41445683Not too bad, actually. Getting close to looking like something straight out of a factory
>>41445697That makes sense. Not everyone will have the same tooling or techniques in their workshop.
>>41431512why not just modify a 2.23 bolt action rifle with the modification?
>>41446696because then you have to buy a rifle, which kind of ruins the point.
>>41428274Anyone got sauce?
>>41446012WTF!? What show is that from?
>>41447753Probably power rangers
>>41447753Kamen rider I think
Anyone have blueprints?
>>41426360>has control over on of the most powerful nations in the world>can't eradicate some sand niggers with homemade gustavs and rocks
How stupid would a pistol with a matchcord to set it off be? I'm talking a cord that leads into a small hole in the rear of the barrel, that you light and just aim while it burns down.
>>41448715Kinda stupid, really. Just make a normal gonne with a touch-hole and flash-pan, so it goes off when you light it. If even that's too complicated to make, go for the absolutely primitive gonne with touch-hole only.
>>41448715so a literal hand cannonIt's not dumb and existed prior to primers, so go ahead.
>>41449006It didn't, though.They didn't put a measured length of fuse in the touch-hole and light it 10 seconds before they expected to shoot; they used a slow match to light the powder in the flash-pan or touch-hole right when they wanted to fire.
>>41448715Stupid fun. The mini matchlock works by that same principal mostly because at that scale the small chunk of fuse acts as the powder in the pan. A bit of incense is used as a slow match and flash cotton for propellant. Shoots .177. great for a shoe box shooting range.
>>41432288Germans are cuckold faggots with shit export laws
Working on a legal substitute for the luty. Got a chambered barrel, 90% done with striker assembly, and I'm starting work on the FCG and finishing the BCG tomorrow. Might have time to do the trunnions as wells.
>>41449701omg that's fucking adorableI made guncotton when I was 11 years old, made a battery operated flamethrower that strapped to my fingers and hid in my hand like magicians use. Never had to the balls to launch a projectile, I've read that it can DDT (deflagration to detonation transition) and that shit scared me
>>41449857Fuckin neato, anon. Post more. I just started buying parts for a knock-off open bolt Caselman air machine gun, made from mostly off the shelf airgun parts. Pic related isn't mine. I wish. Mine won't look this good.
>>41450344I'm basing it off this guy idea sort of, but with the breech and barrel on the side of the main tube. That way I can have a vertical magazine coming up into the breech. Gonna be funky as hell, but should be cheap and easy to build (once I get it tuned and somewhat reliable).
>>41450402Easy ammo 1
>>41450402Easy ammo 2
>>41450406Simple side folding stock.
>>41448544Blue prints for welding two mags together? Just cut the bottom off one, the ears off the other, remove the springs/followers, and weld together. Then either put in a longer spring or put back together in this order:Top followerSpringBottom followerSpringBase plate
>>41450436Just googled and found this... but we already knew cowboy pistols were great for SHTF. Gonna add these to my order someday when I get one. Notice how the blank is offset so that the firing in the rimfire pistol still hits it. I wonder if a centerfire firing pin could reliably set it off from the other side (center of the adapter). Maybe rounds like this could be made to fire in a regular center fire gun. Brass is pretty easy to machine, you can even mill it in a drill press with an x-y table, long as it's the soft kinda brass o'course.
>>41450361BBs will flow through a hose with compressed air like a fire extinguisher. Justsayin several hundred rounds belt (hose) fed full auto airgun sounds fun. Call it a "tactical sand blaster" lol.
>>41450711>Maybe rounds like this could be made to fire in a regular center fire gun.That's exactly what those are intended for, you put them in a centerfire revolver to shoot rimfire blanks. Only works at.45 caliber or more, and that's with .22 blanks. Bigger for .25 or .27 blanks. I'm sure those would also work in a .45 rimfire gun, but there aren't many of those, and they're generally valuable antiques that collectors don't want to shoot at all, even with blanks, so they're not really being made for that market.Similar cartridges have been made for .32, .38, and .41 rimfire revolvers and derringers, to shoot a round ball using a .22 blank and optionally some black powder; I'm not aware of them being commercially available, just produced in small quantity by the people who have old guns and actually want to shoot them.
>>41448423You mean that Pacman prank guy video on youtube?
If you were to make a pistol caliber carbine, is there any reason or advantage to go with a gas impingement or piston system over straight blowback? SBB is obviously the most simple, but for a PCC, is there any point to deviate away from it other than because fuck you I can and I want to?
>>41434336Green furniture on H&K roller locks is fucking sex
>>41454029Weight. Direct is simple, but you need the right weight and results can be, bad for you if you skimp.
>>41454029With blowback, and assuming straight-walled cartridges and negligible friction in the chamber, your bolt recoils with the same momentum as the bullet. The only way to reduce bolt velocity is to increase bolt mass, and vice versa.With gas-operated actions, you choose how much energy is imparted to the bolt group by selecting the gas port size (or adjusting the regulator, if present), so you can make an independent choice of bolt mass, then set the gas system to cycle at the desired velocity.In something like .22LR, there's no point -- the bullet's momentum is so small you wouldn't really want any less. For 9mm, though, you really have too much momentum, so you either wind up with high bolt velocity, or a heavy bolt. You can get reliable operation either way, but you'll have a more pleasant gun to shoot if you use gas operation or delayed blowback to reduce the bolt mass while keeping bolt velocity low.
>>41454029>>41454602Additionally, if you're lazy/don't have too much equipment and don't want to go through the whole system of creating a proper locking system for the gas system to unlock and move, you can use the comparatively simpler system of gas-delayed blowback. Vent the gas from the barrel into a separate chamber somewhere (such as right behind the bolt) so that the gas pressure forces the bolt forward. After a while, the pressure will drop enough so that the bolt can move backwards and go through the rest of the cycle.Main issue here is sealing the chamber that you use, also said chamber gets hot.
assuming it's not literally falling apart, would a pitted old shotgun barrel function better than a solid fitting piece of cut pristine pipe?

>>41449857Tell me more, Anon.
>>41455473Maybe. Depends how old and what kind. If the barrel's thin, like 95 percent of all shot barrels, it's a bad idea. If it's a thicc barrel the pitting can be ignored.
Here's my latest trigger redesign, to go with the striker posted in >>41449857Using high density foamcore for rapid prototyping is an amazing thing. I can copy them via hacksawing plates of steel and aluminum, then need to cut slots in the bolt tube, find my tap set, buy a couple lock collars and start assembly.
>>41458373It's looking like about $50 total in materials, man hours will largely depend on tools used (I am working with a wobbly drill press, and hacksaw). Actual schematics and stats and so on will have to wait until after completion amd hand fitting and so on.
>>41449857>>41458373>>41458424Inspiring posts Anon, even though it's just foamcore.

>>41462266I'm just using nuts and bolts, really. Need to find my tapset though, and buy one size up lock collars.
>>41462332planning on rifling with a button? And sorry if you've already answered. Just curious
>>41462343Nah, you're fine. I actually bought a button rifler, but it hasn't arrived yet. Instead i am using a 9mm barrel i got from Numrich for like $15, all i had to do was chamber it with my 9mm and 3/8 bits and a dremel.
>>41462359Awesome investment for the barrel press, I suspect there will be more builds in the future?
>>41460862I made my gun using mostly hand tools, the only power tool used was a drill press but you can easily do it with an electric drill, no welding need.
>>41462375not a bad $15 spent
>>41462332Good use of the carriage nut. Those guys are underestimated when it comes to tube guns.
>>41462394My goal is to surpass the luty in legality and ease of manufacture, using hand tools and hardware store parts. So, once I have a working prototype, i will make schematics and try to build a copy from them, and streamline the process for a (note: i do not intent to mass produce this design etc etc) minimally intensive manufacture.>>41462493I am worried about the weight of the striker block, but time will tell. Going to use another hardware bolt through the back of the bolt as a charging handle, spring stop for the striker, and guide.
>>41462332What am I looking at here Anon? Is the shiny mass in the center one piece, or two? If it's two, why does that firing pin stick out so far? What am I missing?
>>41462854A single piece, made of a bolt and long nut and broken drillbit (and soon a bolted on steel slat to engage the FCG.) It goes into the tube above it, and the pin goes through the nut there, because this a striker for a legal semi auto pistol/carbine, and not in any way open bolt or readily convertivle to such.
>>41463024So the nut is going to be/be part of the bolt face?
>>41463024>the bolt is pretty much just a capped tube with a slot on the bottom and presumably the charging handle, and the real mass is in the striker assembly, which operates like a normal open bolt semi-autothat's pretty neat. I think usually the striker mass is minimized to reduce the effect on accuracy, but for ease of manufacture, that looks like a winner.
>>41463104Yes, i need to add a ridge for centering and extracting shells, but it's otherwise just plumbing parts, filed flat and drilled through.>>41463173Yeah, it was the easiest way to combine what I had and what I wanted. Also minimzes machining hardened steel, which is a plus. One downside is I had to robustify the trigger and add parts, but that was probably a good idea in any case. Glad you like it.
Here is the picture i was looking for, should be easier to see what I'm up to in this one.
>>41462332the Luty BSP SMG basically?http://thehomegunsmith.com/pdf/BSP-SMG_Book.pdf
>>41464130Inspired by, yes. More specifically inspired by the failings of said gun.
>>41464293Well, it's crude, labor intensive, has shit tolerances, the barrel is a bad joke and it's extremely illegal to own or create. When i was looking for a homebuild gun, i was unable to find anything semi auto, legal, and requiring no more than hand tools, so i decided to do it myself. I was originally worried pepe liberator man would beat me to it, but that meme died out long ago.
>>41464340yeah to the first two points but it's a one off build what are you mentioning tolerances for? the luty bsp semi auto smg non?
>>41463384Oh! Is that black tube itself meant to be the bolt, basically? That makes a lot more sense.
>>41464366He's intending to prototype the concept and get the base idea working. He doesn't intend to mass produce these things, but he wants to dial in the tolerances to the point where one could do that.
>>41462132no that's the russian version that was actually used
>>41464372Yes, the shiny bit is a captive striker assembly that sits inside that. >>41464409Basically yes. The more hand fitting and machining labor I can eliminate from my design, the better.

>>41466316Did you restore an intentionally demiled gun? Or repair a blowed up frame with a replacement cylinder?(It's a Rohm, so I have to ask.)
>>41466409The former, needs a tiny bit of work on the frame pins in the top strap, but it shoots blanks good.>>41466363Just fine, still plastic.
>>41426360Can Shoot Jews
Someday I'd like to try to make a functioning replica. I just wish I knew which books I'd have to read to even think about getting started without accidentally killing myself.
>>41468486What is this even?
>>41468539It is a shotgun from the game RustMany such fascinating models in that game; unfortunately a bit difficult to enjoy on public servers due to everyone being a screaming naked cannibal
>>41468548How's it meant to work, mechanically? >>41468486>booksJust look at an absolute crapload of firearms designs and *exactly* how they work. If you genuinely put time into it, really put effort, you'll have a pretty good base of understanding for it all. Remember, simply copying what others have made isn't the same as designing.
>>41468556>How's it meant to work, mechanically?Best I can guess, a pair of springs put tension on the mechanism that drives the firing pins, such that they want to spring violently forward; drawn back with the hacked-off screwdriver handle, the firing mechanism is drawn back over a detent which holds the tension and which the trigger directly actuates. Now that I think of it, if that's how it works, it works more or less like a crossbow does--though that would mean you'd have to fire both barrels every time, given that I see only one trigger. Hm.>>41468556>Remember, simply copying what others have made isn't the same as designing.Y'know, that's an interesting way of looking at it. I don't have to redesign the wheel from scratch; just figure out how a bunch of people with a lot more formal education built their wheels. That's a lot less intimidating!
I've designed a machine based on no particular inspiration, and am in the process of improving it on paper before making a test model. It's very satisfying to realize I can cut out one section and replace it with a simpler component with no loss of function.
I haven't finished all the parts but this is what i have come up with. I am not a gun nut I have never fired a gun and i have no idea how they work, I just like to reverse engineer them from slow-motion videos.
>>41469307https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQVKWa1Awo4you need a way to lock the breech, designs similar to that were popular in the 1880s or so for black powder military rifles
>>41469323Didn't get to that part yet.
>>41469307It looks like you mean to lock the rim of the cartridge in a sort of channel while lifting it up, if I'm not mistaken. That might be just a little tricky to pull off reliably. >gun nutYou can't say that, that's our word.
>>41424087I made this with a drawer slider, magnets, JB weld, and a cheap knife blade.
>>41469307After looking at this further, it looks like much of the rim is contained within the bolt face in this design. If that is the case, that's probably very bad as it would leave little to none of the metallic base of the shell to obdurate in the chamber, meaning it wouldn't have a very good gas seal. This isn't the biggest issue in the world, since your gun is obviously chambered for some sort of shotshell and they have very very very low pressures, so maybe it would function okay despite those issues. Maybe not, though.
>>41471788That was my first version of a props of concept. My process is that I start with something simple and build that out into something more complex and better. All I have to work of is a slow motion video of a sjogren and my own knowledge of mechanisms (I am a cnc operator so it isn't that much). I have a way better version now with a lock and a better seal.
>>41450518Doesnt take a genius to extend a single stack.
>>41471964Let's see it.
>>41471964>i am a CNC operatorThe entire world is your playground, my friend. Look at how the mechanisms of your daily work orders function and create your own. You have more tools than most of us can dream to have.If you don't already know any, learn some 3D CAD software (Solidworks/Creo/Catia/Inventor) and go crazy.
I want to make a lever action 12 gauge.
>>41473731That is a noble goal. Got any idea how to do it? Rough concept art?
>>41473798Nothing on hand. I'm all for designing my guns myself with my own abilities, but I can't help but feel that lever actions are sort of a solved problem at this point, and I'd be best off doing something about on par with one of those. Nothing too special, as far as I can tell. Side loading gate, though, of course.
hammer fired>striker fired
>>41471788>much of the rim is contained within the bolt faceAre we looking at the same animation? Because that's clearly a flat-faced bolt, and the shotshell rim is inside the barrel when the action closes.>and that would be a bad thing because I don't understand how cartridge cases and obturation worksMore guns have the rim outside the barrel and a recessed bolt face than not. (e.g. AR-15, pic related)
>>41424087Only if its a semi and only in some states
>>41474117>Because that's clearly a flat-faced boltI think the implication was that animation was unfinished and lacking most of the features. >rim outside the barrelYes but those aren't shotshells you fucking retard. Learn to read and then come back and post.
>>41473895Yeah, that's perfectly fair. I'd personally like to see modern thinking applied to lever mechanisms, but for me reinventing the wheel is a lot of fun. Good luck either way.
>>41474132>I just made a deficiency up cause I knew he was a retard who would make that mistake in the future.Shit damage control, bro.>those aren't shotshells... you just said it might be okay BECAUSE it was chambered for shotshells, and hence low pressure. Thereby implying that it would be a problem for sure in other, higher-pressure cartridges.But what the hell, I'll play along. It's not a problem for shotshells, either. Note the non-recessed cylinder in the Raging Judge; the rim of any cartridge, shotshell or not, is exposed in the cylinder/frame gap.
So bullets have to be completely covered by immobile metal parts to not explode?I'm kinda confused how guns work :/
>>41474505Chill out, no one is here to win the thread. >>41474548Not completely, but mostly. And in specific ways. That's how you go from a small, useless explosion to an tightly directed, very useful explosion.
>>41474566how much of the back of the cartridge has to be covered?
>>41431602>>41460960Now that this thread is still up, I did a revision and found that you can also make this into a poorfag version of a Chiappa Triple Threat. The bottom barrels will probably be fired via AR trigger groups, and the top will be just a piece of flat metal bent into a hammer.And it might also be made into a 4 barrel version too, depending on how good you are at mounting barrels and timing the hammers.
>>41474620It depends on the cartridge case construction, and the pressure it's operating at. In general, you want the barrel supporting the case radially all the way back to the web, and the bolt supporting most of the base axially. Radial support for the web itself is usually not needed, although at very high pressure it may matter. More often, support is provided in this region to support the case wall as the cartridge is partially extracted; you see this in actions which extract while there is high residual pressure, such as blowbacks.In most cartridges, the case wall gets much thicker toward the head, and sometimes radial support in the region immediately above the web is limited, relying on the heavy wall to keep things controlled; for example, Glocks in .40 S&W notoriously have a generous feed-ramp cut that removes some radial support at 6 o'clock, resulting in bulged brass in a characteristic "smiley" pattern in the next post. (If the case wall here were as thin as at the front, it would blow right out.) In early .40 Glocks, this unsupported region was even larger than in current production, and this was part of how the "glocknade" meme arose.Axial support is also often incomplete; depending on the bolt/slide design there may be a hole for a plunger ejector, or a slot for a blade ejector, and possibly a slot for the extractor as well. These are generally not an issue -- the case head is generally plenty thick enough to transfer the load to the areas that are supported, rather than having a section of case head bulge out into the unsupported areas. But depending on the pressure (and the hardness of the case head), these unsupported regions may be "embossed" on fired cases.
>>41474548The width of the chamber has to be as precise as possible to prevent excessive expansion of the casing (can result in failure to extract).And headspace has to be as airtight on the back of the casing as possible to prevent excessive pressure from damaging or ripping apart the back of the casing (can result in gas blowing back in your face or damage to locking parts)
Does anyone have more of Wheat's old guides? The ones with Holo in the bottom corner somewhere. Never got around to saving them
>>41474936One more which I just photographed (yes, with potatophone), these were fired in a Glock.The triangular mark on the right side of each cartridge.is where it was embossed into the extractor slot; the rest was axially supported by the breech face of the slide. (No ejector slot imprint because that's entirely below the case when fired.)You can also see feed-ramp smileys in front, similar to the pictures I already posted, but less extreme.
>>41474505>this postOh, bait, I see. Why would you try to ruin an otherwise good thread with shitposting, Anon?
>>41470807Very liable to slice open the fingers you got propping the blade open on the stab.Figure out how to keep that fucker open and you might be on to something.
What common cartridges are safe to use in cheap steel pipe? What's the limit before the pressure gets too high?
Are any modern airsoft revolvers made out of good enough steel to make a proper frame for a real revolver? I know you'd have to change out a few parts and add a real barrel, but I don't know about the metallurgy of the frame.
>>41476982measure the thickness of your pipe and use the hoop stress equation with the yield strength of mild steel to figure out the maximum pressure before bursting, then divide it by 2 or more to be safe. Proof your barrels by hiding behind something sturdy very far away and firing your gun with a rope.With that said, shotgun rounds tend to be lower pressure and rifle rounds tend to have higher pressures. This is convenient because a 12ga shell fits perfectly into a 3/4" steel pipe, which is the basis for the four winds shotgun and nearly every other pipe shotgun.
>>41476982I am working on a definitive conversion chart/infographic. But generally pistol or shotgun shells are safest, as the fellow above me said.
Just test fired me pistol. What do you think.
>>41479879Very Nice do you have still all finger ??
Yes, I took all safety precautions like hiding behind a some books
>>41468486>>41468548God rust has some really nice improvised guns. Not that I ever could but I want to see the pipe shotgun be built one day.
>>41479933good i am happy your gun work fine
>>41479879The new taurus judge is looking good.
pellet rifle converted to .22lr
>>41481229Nice, I'm thinking about buying a cheap one and converting it as well, does it have any potential or does it shoot like trash
>>41481287dont have access to ammo so didnt shoot much with it, ejection is a bitch tho trying to figure something out since its a pain in the ass to take the cartridge out
>>41481305You could drill a hole for a nail, so that the rim of the case just overlaps with its head. Put a spring in the hole and tie some thin wire or string to it so that the nail won't go flying. Or if you have actual machining equipment try and make something that won't look as shit.
>>41481415the firing pin is already fucking strong as fuck that it pierces the rim, im thinking of grind above the firing chamber to insert some sheet metal to act a lever when fired to push out the cartridge
>>41481455Are you using the airguns spring as the striker spring
Is the Sten the pinacle of DIY guns?>stupidly simple design and operation>can be made in any place in the world from few materials and tools>a proper fucking gun
>>41481513yesim currently trying to make a smg out of another pellet rifle but my work bogged down because i fucked up with the barrel and the reciever gonna take a while before i figure it out how to unfuck it
>>41481559You are making all the stuff I have thought about making, but my access to ammo is also limited, and I don't won't to spend like 100 euros just to make them and then shoot them like 10 times
>>41481605europoor? try searching for shitty drunktard hunters that would be willing to buy some ammo for you
>>41481625I would, but were I live owning a rifle or buying ammo for it is illegal, unless you are a member of a shooting range. That's how a got some 22s
>>41481665>I live owning a rifle or buying ammo for it is illegali never mentioned that its legal, i used to get ammo this way but the guy that was selling it moved away and i lost contact
>>41481229How does one do this? I was gifted some break barrel pellet rifles, so I have a couple extra laying around
>>41481689I just became a member and I was just taking some rounds from time to time, but I gave up on that, now I'm more interested in building shotguns since I can just go to a store and buy as much ammo as I want. Also it is more fun blasting stuff with a 12g or even a 410 than shooting them with a 22
>>41481719get a dremmel to slightly widen the barrel and the rest is improvisation when it come to the firing pin
>>41481749Perfect, I'll try it out. American and hasguns here, it just looks like fun project
Any way to make homemade percussion caps or something like them to ignite blackpowder?
>>41477096Probably for .22 lr. I know that some people did it with nicer cap guns
>>41481875>>41477096most airsoft metal gun parts are chinkshit pig metal. good luck getting your face full of shrapnel
>>41481846Armstrong mix, maybe?just make it in small batches if you don't want to lose your hands
>>41481889This, I saw someone make a percussion cap from a metal side from a fuse and some armstrong inside, all sealed with paper
>>41477096What about making the frame by cutting sheet metal to shape and bolting two plates together with the mechanism between them?>>41481886With .22 you could probably use a plastic frame and it'd hold up for a while
>>41481846Strike anywhere matches and luck
>>41481926regular matches ground into powder and an equal portion of powder scraped off the strike strip.
>>41481559I'm not sure what, but something about this picture is painfully unsurprising.
Please dont make any of the firearms you have seen in this thread, literally out of all of them, only one looks like it wont end with metal fragments embedded in your hand and face. engineer here, ignore me if you want I'm just saying... mild steel is not adequate for a 9mm chamber. At least get 4140 or something. Bar stock really isn't that expensive.
>>41482714>9mmI would think if somebody knew how to drill out the correct chamber size and shape for 9mm they would know enough not to shoot it out of a pipe.
>>41482798You would, but here we are. I'm heavily reinforcing my breech regardless.
I can use mild steel for a bolt tho right?
>>41482960Guns used to be made out of brass you colossal stick in the mud
>>41483239My understanding is that barrels can be softer (But still hard, we're not talking brass here), bolts have to be reasonably hard, and receivers should be a little harder than the bolts, as a rule of thumb.
>>41483239they used black powder and no they didn't, brass is a modern fetish due to the ease of machining which means cheap
>>41482933no, you should more honestly be using the most durable stuff you have for the bolt and the barrel, though to be honest follow >>41483299advice.
>>41482933For straight blowbacks, it's fine. But not for locked breech weapons.>>41483239Brass can work for certain cartridges, but I think there's a limit, depending on the specific part.
>>41483455>>41483299Yeah you have no idea what you're talking about >>41483624no brass was used for cannons there is no limit
>>41483652size has no correlation with pressure, anon
>>41483299it really depends on the type of bolt and if it locks or not
>>41483652I'm not sure how. Barrels are usually softer than bolts, which are usually softer than receivers in situations where receivers need to be stress-bearing (Obviously AR's, mossberg shotguns, etc this wouldn't apply to.)
>>41483455Eh, there's so many copper alloys, and the labels have shifted around over time so much, that I don't think saying "brass" is really wrong, though "gunmetal" or "bronze" would usually be the preferred term.Anyway, guns for naval service absolutely were made of copper alloys to avoid rust, pic related.If you stick to the same low pressures as these black-powder guns, you could do fine with, say, cold-drawn 360 brass. It certainly doesn't get any easier to machine than that.Cartridges below 20 ksi like .32 S&W Long, .38 S&W, and .38 Special would be okay with fairly normal dimensions (do your own math for specifics).Cartridges around 20-25 ksi like .22LR, .32 ACP, .32 H&R, .380 ACP, and .45 ACP would be pushing it, but doable with sufficiently thicc walls.Normal pressure rounds like 9mm, just don't. You're really better off finding a way to work with steel.If you're improvising your ammo using blanks, armstrong mix, etc., you don't know what pressures you're running, and you're best off just going with steel to provide the most safety margin possible.
>>41483844>.38 specialVery interesting idea, Anon. Thanks for learnin' me something.
>>41428507Would love to build one of those with an fn5-7 and a 8 or 9" barrel. Would be a great backpack gun.>>41429804>>41429813Can that hinging portion be modified for another polymer pistol frame?
>>41431631Needs to have the bolt carrier dimensions added so you know how much to trim out of a full auto carrier to make it an SP1
