This project is totally doable, and brings a more comprehensive thought to firearms in function and design. I used to just take mine apart and periodically thought about the way in which it was actually made. It' borderline misleading in the supplies and tools required. There is video of making the firearm under you tub, but I would still recommend the reading and study of this book as it brings more of visual understanding of what EXACTLY is taking place. you will notice though the usage of tools and parts (nylon washers) that are not mentioned in the book. Can't support the idea of actually utilizing this firearm, but it would be a great father to son project. So much wisdom and understanding has left our wonderful land, and unless we fight to hold true, we will all become victim to ignorance. The right to bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed.
NOTE: In a way, I suppose that this book in itself holds the means of what it is to be free. To have and protect life,...
With certain exceptions a firearm may be made by a non-licensee provided it is not for sale and the maker is not prohibited from possessing firearms. However, a person is prohibited from assembling a non-sporting semi-automatic rifle or non-sporting shotgun from imported parts. In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and approval by ATF. An application to make a machine gun will not be approved unless documentation is submitted showing that the firearm is being made for a Federal or State agency.

So it is NOT ILLEGAL for someone to make the gun in this or any other book as long as it is built as a sporting semi-auto weapon. Making it a full auto weapon would be illegal not as a semi-auto. So making a few mods to this gun to qualify as a sporting gun would be easy enough for anyone with a brain so DON"T listen to people saying building your own gun is illegal...
Very impressive, I don't believe Mr. Luty is a threat to the public, but judging from what the British government has had to say about him, he is still a threat, I would say a mortal threat, to the status quo, vis-a-vis British gun laws. I have read Bill Holmes. I have read Metral. Luty's book is the only one that I came away from with the impression that I might actually be able to build the gun the author showed how to make, no machine tools required. The lack of a rifled barrel makes that possible. The instructions did require a thorough reading and re-reading, in my case, before I really "got it", but aside from a few minor spelling and grammatical errors, they were very clear, step-by-step, and concise, while of sufficient detail to properly demonstrate the concepts involved. The author provides cutting templates, and all the needed specifications for the the necessary materials. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the subject of improvised firearms.
