    I already don't have cnc machines ,but built one by machining on conventional milling and turning machines.I completely built it from bar stock material except some cheap parts.

    Excellent work, you're working in the direction I also plan to go in. Would you post some pics of your 1911 fabrication and would it be possible to talk you into posting your CAD file for download?

    Also, where were you able to obtain the blueprints from?

    The BATFE requires that you have a manufacturer's license in order to produce firearms. The frame carries the serial number on pistols and therefore, you have to run an off the shelf frame or have a current manufacturer's license.

    Be aware that there are federal agents that peruse the web looking at sites like this for evil doers. It would suck to have your door kicked in at 3 in the morning just because you didn't know the laws, or you felt that they didn't apply to you.

    Matt have they changed the law regarding this ? It use to be you had to have a manufactures license only if you intended to sell the weapon .

    You could make all the say 1911's you wanted as long as they are for personal use only but never give or sell them to anyone .

    Companies use to get away with selling what I think was called an 80% frame without a serial # because it wasn't finished enough to be considered a gun and you had to do enough work that you were considered making a personel firearm .

    Very, very impressive. Incredible detail. I need to start re-learning SolidWorks for a design project I have coming up. So you machined a 1911 slide out of solid stock using conventional machine tools? How long did that take? What do you do for a living (if you don't mind my asking)?

    Hey is there anyway someone could send me a file of SolidWorks so I can download it or maybe tell me a website I can go to to get it?
    I really want the program but can't find it anywhere.
    Thanks.

    SolidWorks 3D-CAD-Konstruktionssoftware

    But I guess this is a German software!
    Not sure weather there is an English version!?:confused:

    To the OP, well done

    Old post, I understand but this was never addressed.

    That info is wrong. You absolutely can do home builds.
    Here is a cut and past as well as a link

    A. GENERAL QUESTIONS

    (A6) Does the GCA prohibit anyone from making a handgun, shotgun or rifle? [Back]

    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. In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and approval by ATF. 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.


    [18 U.S.C. 922(o) and (r), 26 U.S.C. 5822, 27 CFR 478.39, 479.62 and 479.105]
