Home Workshop Prototype Firearms – Bill Holmes – Paladin Press.pdf

The diameter should be the largest possible without interfering with the sight picture. Pot metal and plastic should be confined to BB guns and cap pistols; real guns should be built from quality materials.

The barrel is threaded into the barrel extension, forming a solid unit whereby the bolt and barrel assembly are locked together. Due to the Urge diameter of the bolt body, the cocking cam slot can still be quite shallow, even with multiple lugs, which lessens the effort needed to open the bolt with the firing pin in its forward position. The trigger nose engages In a notch in the hammei; holding it in the cocked position until the trigger is pulled.

With the barrel held in the lathe chuck, the cutting ertd of the dowel Is Inserted in the bme, the lathe turned on, and the hand-held dowel moved slowly back and forth through the bore. About half the people interested in these guns were left-handed, so I wound up putting a safe- ty lever on both sides so that it could be operat- ed with either hand.

However if sufficient time and effort la invested, it will give good results. Is soluble for use with high- pressure cartridges. Fully half of these self-styled ballistic geniuses who try to reload ammunition have no idea what they ate doing and don’t completely resize shells to factoiy specifications.


The inside of the barrel is bored to a diameter of. Bolts are made using appiopiiate round stock turned to a size that will slide freely through the receiver tube. Marks and scribed lines on metal are often hard to see during the sawing or milling pro- cess, A thin coal of layout fluid such as Dykem brushed on and allowed to dry for a few min- utes will make subsequent lines mote visible.

I put the firing pin at the bottem and let the cartridge head slide across it, something no one had ever thought of before.

If you only intend to make a few, tt is more economical to obtain a short length of or round stock and drill a pilot hole that Is enlarged with the boring firarms. Gas exit holes are indexed and drilled per- pendicular to the bore and should conform to a regular pattern, mostly for the sake of firearme ance.

This last machine U even more versatile because It has a built-in bUde welder and grinder. These usually lock either by means of a rotating boh- head or a rising block. This will allow wider slots to be cut at one time, with the slot width regulated by the number of blades used.

Therefore, when only one gun is to be built, look for some other source of materials. This is because the breechblock may not fit In exactly the same relationship as it does when out of the stock.

This is especially true with the gas- operated autoloader in that the gas ports, pis- ton, recoil spring, etc. Ideally it will be located just below the Inboard extractor and project through the bolt face just inside the outer diameter. Everything went fine until I went into the club house to have a drink with the club manag- er. This guy cut six equally spaced slots 4 inches long and.


Even now, the cen- ter drill should be used first followed by drills as described above. These ate firrarms through maddne tool supply houses, ranging from small boxes for use with one motor to the large Rotophase types, which.

It can be machined square, except for the rounded comets, with an end mill, The comers can be cut square by filing or broaching. I have used synthetic stocks and orends myselt in the fabrication of military-type weapons and, at one time.

When using high sights, It is extremely important that the sights stand exactly verticai, or straight up and down. As an experiment, I put the recoil pad back on her gun and took it back to her.

Holes can be plugged with paraffin wax, cracks and seams taped over, and slots and depressions filled with wax.

Gas passing through the port a pushes against a piston, which is CMUiected in some way to the bolt. The reason for this is that simply will not heat-treat to the hardnesa required to prevent battering or upsetting and would wear rapidly.

Actually the outside one on the same side as the ejeMon port is the extraetcg.
