Homemade .410 Revolver Carbine

Royal Nonesuch, made his own .410 revolver carbine out of some scrap metal. It is a four shot revolver and even though it is rough looking, it seems to shoot rather well. Later in the video he shows how dangerous this gun build is, with regards to the sear/trigger/firing pin.

His YouTube Page is full of home made firearms, check it out.

    Such a handsome boy making such an ugly thing. Shame.

  • 1leggeddog

    scary but the basics are there.

    You could probably clean up his design and make it functional.. and safer.

  • guest

    Using nagant-like seal between the cylinder and the barrel… smart

  • ColaBox

    Surprised he didn’t go farther with the design, just looking at it I can see room for improvement in regards to comfort and handling.

    • I really dig the folding stock using the door latch. Definitely a creative kid – I hope he remembers his shooting glasses (or gets himself a lexan face shield) next time.

      Its a prototype. Most look crude. I’d like to see the thing refined as a five shot. Maybe put a finished long barrel on a Judge with a stock and you’d have the same thing and it would shoot .45 long colt as well. I think I’ll do that with a rifled barrel so it will fire slugs as well. Call it the Long Judge.

    After looking at some of his YouTube videos… clever lad! Hopefully he goes into engineering because, with the right skill/knowledge base, he could do great things with his creativity: both with firearms and in other areas.

    No eye protection and earbuds as hearing protection with a homemade gun.

    Kid has no common sense.

    • guest

      Those look like in-ear monitors, not standard ear-buds. I use Shure SE535’s all the time when shooting and they do just fine (~35 dB reduction).

      +1 on the eye protection though!

    Well done laddie, well done. I want this little maniac in my bunker when the burning times come.

  • Kinda show the stupidity of gun laws too.
    Someone wants a gun bad enuff they will find a way to either get or make one.

  • Bosley

    I encourage him to seek out an education in ordnance engineering, however if he keeps on the path he seems to be going I predict he will die via surprise suicide or be squeezing his ketchup bottles with a hook.

    Listen Royal Nonsuch. If an 8 year old child in Pakistan can make a Tokerev clone with hand files and a vice on a dirt floor. You can do better. I am assuming you can read books and have access to the inter webs (unlike little Raqjipi here). Good luck and God speed. And don’t forget eyepro is your friend, especially when firing water pipe zipgun contraptions.

    • The Brigadier

      I read about both the Pakistani and the Afghan home factories. Both make the barrels from rebar. They can make a finished AK in four hours and the the barrel is good for about 400 rounds. They rifle it by cutting razor sharp steel arrow heads to different lengths and pulling them through the diameter until they cut a deep enough rifling. It was an amazing documentary. That Tokarev in the picture looks like it probable has stock parts mixed in with what they manufacture. The checkering and the contouring looks a lot better than they normally produce entirely by hand. Look at the kid’s eyes. Sheer delight.

    Never mind the fact making your own firearm without first getting ATF approval is a felony and putting it online is just plain stupid…

    • mmathers

      Please cite the law you are referencing, Derp.
      * The BATFE regulates making firearms for resale (requiring an FFL); I’ve never seen any law cited that prevents you from designing and manufacturing firearms
      * The BATFE also regulates making NFA weapons. Looking at his rifle, it would seem to conform

      Now, some states might have their own laws (ex: this gun might be too short for CA with the foldable stock AND I believe there’s also a law classifying a shotgun with a revolving cyl as an AW) but none of that crap is BATFE specific.

      If you are just spewing FUD, your name choice is quite appropriate.

    • The Brigadier

      Not so. You can make any firearm for yourself and its completely legal. If you make another and sell it you are effectively a gun manufacturer and doing so without a Federal Firearm License manufacturer’s license (Level 3 license I believe) will get you five to seven years in prison. Know the difference before you post.

  • noguncontrol

    somebody download it and save it, before the nazis ban it all!!!

    I didn’t need to see this…and a whole channel of such? Kid’s gonna get me in trouble and I’m twice his age LOL.
