Todd, who lives “behind enemy lines”, built a 100% New York compliant AR-style rifle by building it without any gas system and so creating a manually operated bolt action rifle rather than a semi-automatic. It was inspired by the various bolt-action AR-15s [Read More…]

Schizuki sent us this photo of his CZ 75 B chambered in 9mm Luger/Parabellum. The grips are Hogue CZ-75/CZ-85 Pau Ferro Grips, which in my opinion look a lot nicer than the factory plastic grips. Submit photos you have taken to TFB’s Photo Of The Day.

A popular platform for building DIY “zip guns” is the humble staple gun that is easily obtainable at your local office supply store. This is a four shot model (not sure if that means 4 shots fired all at once, or four barrels each fired on a single pull of [Read More…]

To be honest, I am a plastic fantastic fan myself, but I cannot call a plastic gun beautiful … Glock guns simply are not beautiful. The 1911 is a beautiful gun. TFB reader Sean managed to buy this beauty for a very good price in the used section of his local gun [Read More…]
