    How hard is it to manufacture firearms from scratch?

    Here are a few videos describing "home made" firearms not built in a dedicated arms factory...

    Enjoy!

    I love the hand gun, the 23mm cartridge case mounted on a handle shaped stick.


    As basic a hand gun as they used in Medieval times.

    And if that is all you saw you didn't actually watch the videos....

    No surprise as the videos give lie to your constant babbling about "home made guns".

    Are you still making your ignorant claims about non factory guns?

    Any machinist worth a darn that has the specs can make M3A1 machine guns in their own shop with little difficulty. Just saying.

    Rich2018 doesn't believe you. Or anyone else. It doesn't fit his world view. According to him guns must be made in factories specifically designed to do so.

    According to him no firearms should be made anywhere and those already made should be confiscated, by force if necessary, it is his fantasy.
    Still doesn't change reality.

    YouTube has a video (I am not going to post it) of a functioning six shot revolver made on a 3D printer. Now that 3D printers can machine metal, expect a lot more of things like this. The best part, no license required and no laws broken.

    I somehow doubt that.

    I think the lack of fully automatic sub machine guns in criminal hands proves that.
