Yeah I thought about that right after I posted. All you need to make your own non nfa is the right tools right?

Your engraving is amazing. Maybe I'll be your first customer one day.

Your a hero.

Hate to rain on your parade bro,but to my understanding its illegal to convert any gun to full auto class 3 license or not. The only legally transferable and ownable machine guns are ones that are registered in the machinegun registry,and since the machinegun registry is closed you can't manufacture a machingun and register it.The legal number of machineguns in the united states can only decline,not increase. This is why a plain Jane full auto AR or AK will fetch well over 10,000 dollars in most cases between dealers,because there's only a set number of full autos in the U.S.

I did a bunch of research on the subject and this is the information I came up with,and to my knowledge is the way it is. If somebody better versed on the subject than me finds me to be wrong then please speak up as I am always craving more firearms knowledge

Hey good job. I would like one in 7.62x25. I can do better than the 90.00 for materials. I don't know what we can do about the 20,000 manhours though.

Just hopped on the PC to look at the pics,awesome build. I aspired to be a gunsmith for the longest time as well,but without the resources that you have I tried to use the USMC (a second aspiration of mine) to get me in a position to become a gunsmith. Even though I was a near perfect poolee the guys at MEPS decided to screw me... so my gunsmithing plan got put on an indefinite hold. Good to see that someone with the same passion for firearms is making it happen. Gunsmithing seems to be a dying trade.

I was joking about the 20,000. It only took about 1,100 hours but that's just because it's my first scratch build (I built an amd-65 from a parts kit and a bolt Action 50 from a manual), and didn't know the tricks I could make another one in any calibre in about 25- 75 hours because I learned from my mistakes : ) if anyone is serious about me building them one I have no problem with it at all, but this is a touchy thing and before i promise anything ill have to contact the ATF. I now have access to a CNC machine so I could do an even more proffesional job. Please contact me at wr250frider@gmail.com and I'll give you my phone #. I can make every part for you except the reciever as that's what the ATF considers the weapon, but I can sent you a 80% done reciever with all the hole center punched, and all you need to do is drill the holes.

The mags are 32 round Uzi mags

This was electro etched (salt water) then cleaned up with my graver. That's why u see all the pitting

This is raised instead of sunk, I used a micro dremel to remove material.

Here's some more practice engraving inlaid with fake gold (a euphamism for spray painted then sanded : D)

Here's those drawings Trip

The one on the right would wrap around the cylinder on the flat part before the fullets, or those grooves. The other one would be repeated between each fullet

Dude, that is awesome. I just threw you an idea of a non fluted cylinder in a pm, but scratch that idea, I like yours better!

Got promise, kid. Maybe you'll be the next Sam Colt.
