    I have a friend who has access to a milling machine and a lathe as well as the skills to use it properly.

    How difficult would it be to mill my own receivers as well all the other parts I would need to have a working firearm?

    Is there some place I can buy specs for your basic ak-47?

    Pretty sure that would be illegal, but then again, I doubt you'd care about something like that.

    Actually it is legal. You just can't sell them.


    And you are right. Even if it wasn't legal I would do it anyway.

    The ATF only "suggests" that you uniquely mark a homemade weapon in order to identify it. Not required. However "if the gun is ever transferred (sold, given away, etc.), it must be marked, with the same markings that would be required if you had built an NFA firearm on a Form 1."

    Huh? I was under the impression that if you made it yourself, it could be SA, FA, bolt-action, etc. and as long as you didn't sell it, it was legal.

    You would be correct. You can even sell it. You just cannot make it with intent to sell.

    For an AK you'd be just as well of buying some flats and working from there.

    Like this: http://www.akparts.com/index.htm?c68.htm&1. Can be shipped directly to you, no need to go through an FFL.

    Not sure where you'd look if you wanted to start from sheet metal.

    I think it would be a bitch compared to just dropping $80 on a new receiver but it depends on what you find fun and rewarding I suppose. There is a place that sells some unfinished receivers too that need some final milling. They seem kind of nutty and accept payment in like gold and freedom dollars or something and I think they were raided by the atf a while back but may still be in business. There are lots of jigs available for bending ak receivers though.


    Here's hoping you don't wind up making this

    I'm not looking at one gun. I'm thinking of building hundreds. Those costs will add up over time.

    :uh:Christ almighty... should have known better than to even click on this fucking thread.

    FYI, federal firearms laws are "the real deal." Its not treated like the the petty trespassing, possession of paraphenalia, & jacking off in public you regularly get busted for.

    Manufacturing with intent to distribute.

    Go directly to prison.

    False. Manufacturing with intent to stockpile.
