In one of the most awesome feats I have seen on YouTube in a while, YouTuber FarmCraft101 makes an AR-15 lower receiver from old soda cans. That’s right, a soda can AR-15!
All of you pedantic jackwagons out there that get pissy when someone says that they ‘built’ an AR-15 can shut your wordhole this time. If anyone should be able to claim that they built their own rifle, it is this dude.

FarmCraft101 starts out with a bunch of aluminum cans, melts them into ingots, then builds a mold to make a 0% receiver. Using a mill he transforms a chunk of metal into a sort of recognizable AR lower that I would be proud to own for no other reason than the pure novelty of it.
To top it all off, he polishes the piss out of the receiver, gives it a serial number, then assembles an off the shelf rifle kit around his homemade lower receiver that it presumably made from old Coca-Cola and Pabst Blue Ribbon cans.
FarmCraft101’s badassery doesn’t stop there, he does all kinds of other cool crap on his channel like take a 1″ piece of rebar and turns it into a giant bolt for no other reason than because he can. He also built a copper rose out of old plumbing pipe so he could presumably a lady with his badass skills (He could have charmed the pants off of Mother Teresa with that rose. It is pretty freakin’ cool.)
Check out his channel for more cool videos, but mostly watch the one I posted below of him building his soda can AR-15.
