Apocalypse Hardware Store Pistol Build

    Remember the YouTube channel Royal Nonesuch with the homemade gun guy who posts all those do not try this at home type videos? Like the one where he shoots a .50BMG out of a homemade 12g shotgun. Well he posted a video earlier this year of a hardware store pistol build for when the world goes down the drain. It was actually a pretty interesting design, it kind of looks like an FP-45 Liberator pistol from WWII. Well the designer of the apocalypse pistol build Mark Serbu of Serbu Firearms posted a more in depth video of the pistol showing the initial design in CAD. One part they didn’t buy at Home Depot was the breech which was made from a scrap piece of .22lr barrel they had laying around that they turned down and welded into the barrel.

    The single shot pistol is really simple and it actually looks like a firearm, unlike this zip gun that was confiscated in South Africa or this homemade pen gun from Australia that was actually being manufactured and sold to gang members. While a homemade gun wouldn’t be my first choice for use if the SHTF, it’s better than nothing I suppose. Check it out in action in the video below.
