The book Expedient Homemade Firearms contains step-by-step instructions for building a 9mm sub-machine gun.
This firearm is constructed from readily available materials. Steel tube is the primary ingredient. Construction does not require a lathe or milling machine.
Because of the lack of machines needed, the gun can be built by novices in about a week.
Obviously, the book Expedient Homemade Firearms is For Academic Study Only.
I enjoyed this book. Reading about the process of building an open bolt submachine gun was entertaining and enlightening. Of course, actually building such a firearm is illegal most of the world populace. In the US, the criminal punishment is severe. I like my dogs and my home so I don’t want the BATFE to burn either one.
You Can’t Mention Expedient Homemade Firearms without Hearing about its author.
This book was used to as evidence to convict him on weapons charges. Afterward PA Luty spent several years in a UK penitentiary.
Mr. Luty was, a model inmate. The warden and several others stated he was a model prisoner. Unfortunately, Luty was not paroled because of politics.
I find this book an invaluable asset when it comes to free thinking, problem solving, and using materials outside of common use. However, building an unregistered machine gun is not recommended.
I imagine this book will be banned long before it becomes necessary to manufacture sub-machine guns at home. I would buy a copy, just In case.
Actually, as an Update, I was clearing out dead links and found that Amazon actually has removed this book from its online listing. I don’t want to dig too deep into politics but that is troubling seeing all that is going on in September of 2021. It might be time to go buy a bunch of steel tube. Even without a book, building a rifle is not something a creative person can’t figure out. Child labor builds AK-47’s in jungle huts for under $20 and WW-II Sten guns were hand made in the thousands in english bicycle repair shops.
Currently, law makers are attempting to pass laws banning any attempts to build guns. Even firearms that fall with state firearm freedom act exemptions. This is a blatant attempt to violate the second and tenth amendments to the US Constitution.
I am a law abiding citizen, and have no plans or desire to break laws, but I wonder why our representatives are so scare of an armed populace.
