  1. Handguns
    I am a machinist/toolmaker by trade and want to make my own pistol from scratch. After a conversation with Mr. Sullivan at the Oneida County Pistol Office, I am to believe that I can not do so without going through a FFL dealer and or "manufacturer". He stated that all those who have presented a...

    Homemade silencers made for $8,000 sold to Navy for $1.6 million, authorities investigating ""Are you kidding me?" said Carlos C. Robles, the machinist who made 349 silencers for his boss at a cost of $8,000, including parts and labor, when he found out that they were sold to the Navy for $1.6...

    Teenagers in CT Arrested for Making & Selling Homemade "Zip Guns" If anyone thinks banning guns will result in there being no guns in the hands of criminals this story should set them straight. TEENAGERS in CT made and sold over a dozen fully functional firearms in their home.
  4. General Firearms
    I bought a Savage Rascal youth rifle last month and it is a really cool little single shot. For a pack or for **** hunting I am convinced you need a rifle. I am decent with a pistol, but they are load and you can't make nearly as accurate shots as easily with them. Although this thing straps to...
  5. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    Well, after searching around here and reading the NYS FAQ, I am still lost. I have some homemade lowers/rifles (made from 80%ers) from a few years back and don't know whether I need to register them under the SAFE act. From what I understand, homemade rifles must comply with the laws at time of...
  6. Pistol Permits
    Has anyone registered a homemade handgun? I want to build one, but want it to be legal. So far nobody in Onondaga county can tell me how to register one because it does not have a reciept - and actuallly, I don't want to assemble the frame until I have the legalities cleared. Anyone have...
  7. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    I just put this post up on another forum and decided to post it here too. It could be relevant for someone. I needed a pack basket for trapping this year, my dad has my old hardwood woven one with the busted out bottom and missing pieces, really not worth the hassle. I don't have the extra cash...

    hi, I want to start playing 200 yards, the few times I try I didn't do good (4" at best), so I build this little helper.. Can't wait to try it! ;)
  9. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    If someone made an AR from an 80% lower and made the trigger assembly from scratch would it be allowed to be fully auto or would it still be required to be semi-auto in ny? I have not done this as to I don't have the machines but it was just a thought going through my mind
  10. DIY Projects and Builds
    I was kind of in the same boat as everyone else who would like a steel rail for one reason or another. My reason is the mini 14 came with steel scope rings that mount to the factory mounting points of the rifle. These mounts are actually pretty nice but I wanted a rail to mount on the factory...
  11. Off Topic Lounge
    I've been making a lot of beef jerky (and Venison when I have some) lately. I was kind of inspired by the what's for dinner thread, and I want to hear your jerky recipes. What cuts of meat do you prefer? What kind of marinades do you use, or do you use a dry rub/cure? Do you dehydrate anything...
  12. The AR-15
    I finally took some pictures of a couple of my AR's. Both are home made from 80% lowers. The carbine is my stored out of state toy, complete with the SSR bump fire stock. Packed for travel; The SPR, The carbine; How they shoot... The SPR at 100 yards. I do need to work on the fliers...

    Every so often a really outstanding thread arises somewhere. This one I think is one of those. Check it out.
