Well, the Expedient Homemade Firearms is complete with the aquisition of Do-It-Yourself Submachine Gun book, because this book covers important steps that the Expedient Homemade Firearms doesn't cover, like the Parkerization Process, Handgrip manufature and some most technical details.
If you wanna make your weapon, buy both books, focus on building the weapon explained in the Expedient Homemade Firearms, and add to it the important details described on Do-It-Yourself book.
For general information about improvised open bolt submachine guns, this is it.
Now, this book is not really a laymen's guide to building a submachine gun, but as I said, it does not require a lot. If you have some good experience with tools, you will have no problems. Geez, if you had Shop in high school, you probably won't struggle much. Me? Nah, the ATF can breathe one more sigh of relief. I'd probably drill holes in my fingers before I got anywhere near the lower receiver! Don't get me wrong, anyone can do this but I suggest you have someone with a decent amount of workshop experience around if you're not familiar with the tools or materials. I opened the book, looked at the tools and on a few, I just went "huh?" Coming from a family of carpenters, I suspect they would be ashamed. Meh, maybe they would just be ashamed to know I had the book. It's a moot point though.
So if you have some experience with building things, specifically out of steel tubes, you can probably build this. If you know what a countersink tool is... ehhh... you're ahead of me. The bottom line is that if you think you can build the thing, you probably can (for display only and with the proper licenses, of course).
Oh, and thankfully there IS a picture of the finished product and it DOES look pretty cool, if you ask me.
The end result is an attractive all steel submachine gun.the author also explains some details some as test firing,maintenance,and finishing. This is definitly a must-buy for those interested in the subject.
