A DIY Submachine gun

    A reader emailed me these photos of a homemade submachine gun built by man in Romania from the plans of Luty’s infamous book. It is chambered in .32 ACP and fires at a rate of 550 – 600 rpm.

    Improvements of the original Luty SMG are ergonomic maple knotwood grip, forward grip/extended magwell, ligher bolt, heavier mainspring and a glock-style feed ramp.

    On of these days I would like build a legal blank firing submachine gun.
