For academic study only. No hand drawn doodles like Holmes Metral has heard of CAD and is entirely up to standard drafting techniques.
As with any quality firearm, you need access to a lathe and preferably a mill. Top quality firearm design and nothing sketchy or lack of information. Measurement conversion is a non issue for people that heard of calculators. Simple step by step instructions and clear language. As for the mag. This gun was designed to be made in clandestine situations and Sten mags are very common and affordable.
I would redesign it a bit for a more reliable mag such as an Uzi. In order to construct this, one MUST beware of the laws and its consequences. All in all, great read!!! One notable exclusion however is that the author only passingly describes the process of barrel rifling and suggests that the reader purchase another of his books in which this subject is dealt with in detail. With this in mind perhaps the title should be "A Other than that it is excellent reference material.
Great Information A Customer on Oct 10, this book is Brilliant it shows you how to make a submachinegun gun using no gunsmith tools. Brilliant book for first time builders of firearms easy and simple step by step instructions and clear language well recomended must buy if your a person intrested in building fireams. Attention everyone Well-written, factory grade drawings, and an attractive weapon to build! Then why did I give it "only" four stars? The magazine used with this weapon is the standard Sten SMG magazine.
And every soul knows that the weak part of the Sten was So you better think of something else than using dodgy surplus WW2 rejects when you commence the construction of this impressive piece of weaponry. Anyway, great book, I love it. Grat Book A Customer on Jun 20, This is written for the guy with a lathe and drill press and at least minimal knowledge of machining. It is nicely bound, and has excellent working drawings and photos. Although measurements are metric they are converted to "American" in tables.
If, like me you are just fascinated with firearms, or are seriously thinking of building one, I would recommend it. Great Book! A Customer on Apr 15, This is simply a great book. Whether used for study, or for actual construction, this book surpasses all which I have read thus far. I definitely reccomend this book to anyone who needs a better understanding on the construction and operation of firearms in general, or just a quick reference on the subject.
Why all the flowery reviews of this book? By on Mar 10, This book lacks any detail on how the parts go together. My belief is that you would have to build this and iterate on the correct part machining features. It does have a safety that also selects semi and auto firing operation, but I have not figured that out yet. Nothing will stop you from using a hacksaw, file, and hand drill if you have that sort of patience and skill. I am not able to find a zoom or magnify feature that would make the drawings useable.
Really, Amazon should not even sell the Ebook version without some kind of warning. The problem with the book is the design does not give up any complexity in an effort to tailor towards home manufacture. In other words, it might as well be a set of nice drawings for some other, more proven design such as a Uzi. It is probably not something you can make without a lot of skill and some machine tools.
Still, it is not a bad book to have for study. Oh, the book is all metric, by the way. Conversion per se is simple enough, but if it calls for metric tubing for the starting material and only inch tubing is available you need to have an extra helping of good judgement to make all other the changes necessary.
Great book for the lathe enthusiasth! By Rafael De Bustamante on Jul 23, The book is rich in technical data and drawings, and the gun can be easily constructed by anyone who owns a machine shop.
A very good project gun book! By Purduetony60 on Mar 10, I was very impressed with this book and the weapon it describes. The design is very clear and easy to understand. The author is very knowledgeable and skilled and I enjoyed his way of communication and articulation. Prior to purchasing this book I read other reviews who criticized it and said that it is poorly done and crappy design.
Ignore these reviews The best part of the book: The prints in the book are in CAD and are very good, but there are some simple drafting errors, however they are still clear, complete and workable.
The weapon described is not simple and does require relative tight tolerances to be maintained. If you do not have basic shop skills and the necessary equipment, then realistically dont buy this book thinking you are going to make the weapon with a hammer, propane torch and files.
The book is still a good read and is very interesting for anyone who is into mechanical things. Overall, I was very happy with the design and contents of the book and it exceeded my expectations by far!
I certainly would recommend it to a friend. Okay treatment of the subjectbut not a complete reference on it By Mikey on Dec 19, Its okay, but chiefly devoted to schematics. A little Mcguiverish info on: home, low tech and expedient gunsmithing would have been nice. If you are interested in the subject, dont count on this book singularly to give you the information you need.
Otherwise, I should say that the schematics look good and make sense. This particular edition is in a Paperback format. It was published by Paladin Press and has a total of pages in the book. To buy this book at the lowest price, Click Here. Similar Books.

Goltigul Push the slug almost all the way out of the bore and coat it with a mixture of oil and fine emery flour. Start with a plain bar. First, drill the 10 mm hole and then enlarge it to 12 mm as shown in the drawing. If the gun fails to fire, check and eventually modify the firing pin or the extractor.
