    I have no advice other than to look into the legal aspects. I hear that if your just building it for yourself, within certain restrictions (like no MGs and no explosives) then you will be okay.

    Beyond that, keep us posted.
    I'm wanting to build a break action .22 single shot rifle myself.

    Lord I hope not. I'm just pointing out that I'm pretty sure it's illegal to build MGs and explosives, but that a .45 Derringer should be fine.

    Ya my buddie colton will most likely help me so depending on how tough the mechanism is it'll more or less be a decently quick build but i could be way wrong you never know so I'll stay in touch on here

    Back to the original post- regarding your .45 derringer- while it IS legal under Federal law to build a handgun for your own use, please remember that you cannot build a "short barreled shotgun" without a lot of paperwork in advance. And unless the barrel for your derringer is rifled, or unless it is a ball & cap muzzleloader, it WOULD be a "short barreled shotgun".

    Tannerite is a high power explosive used as almost like a target and it's normally sold online

    Will it be a 45 auto or a 45 long colt? The rimmed case would be easier to build around, I would think. Yes you must have rifling in the barrels. Is it to be a double barrel? Or a single shot?

    Yep, if you watch mythbusters, it's the binary they use.
