Parts Available At Lowe's

I stumbled across this silent documentary about British production of the Sten during WWII. It called to mind a comment that Tam had made last year during all the angst in California about "ghost guns" and 80% lowers. She noted, "Heck, Lowe's sells 90% Sten receivers on aisle 5."

After watching this documentary, I believe Tam is correct. The Sten is a crude firearm but seeing whole wheelbarrows full of them leaving the factory leaves me almost giddy. A guy can dream.

  1. an oldie... one of the many titles available on Amazon...

    I am tempted to try and cobble together a sine-bar rifling machine from the bits available to build CNC equipment. Racks/pinions/etc There is a video somewhere of the Civil-War-Ear sine-bar rifling machine that pretty much ushered in the modern era of rifles. (It's in some museum somewhere.) That is really the only drawback to these weapons made from Lowe's supplies.... smooth bore.
