Format: Paperback
The technical drawings in this book are of a high standard and anyone who has experience and/or access to a machine-shop will find them an excellent reference to this kind of work. One notable exclusion however is that the author only passingly describes the process of barrel rifling and suggests that the reader purchase another of his books in which this subject is dealt with in detail. With this in mind perhaps the title should be "A...very inaccurate unless you buy another book as well Submachine Gun...etc"! Other than that it is excellent reference material.

Now here's the book you want if you're serious about firearms construction. Well-written, factory grade drawings, and an attractive weapon to build! Then why did I give it "only" four stars? Here's why. The magazine used with this weapon is the standard Sten SMG magazine. And every soul knows that the weak part of the Sten was....exactly, the magazine. So you better think of something else than using dodgy surplus WW2 rejects when you commence the construction of this impressive piece of weaponry. Anyway, great book, I love it.

This is written for the guy with a lathe and drill press and at least minimal knowledge of machining. It is not for the "file & hacksaw crowd".
It is nicely bound, and has excellent working drawings and photos.
Although measurements are metric they are converted to "American" in tables.
If, like me you are just fascinated with firearms, or are seriously thinking of building one, I would recommend it.

Just got the book this afternoon and let me tell you that this is a keeper.
From a mechanical engineering designer's line of sight, this book is the exact contrast to Bill Holmes' .50 Cal Disaster. No hand drawn doodles like Holmes (Metral has heard of CAD) and is entirely up to standard drafting techniques. As with any quality firearm, you need access to a lathe and preferably a mill. Top quality firearm design and nothing sketchy or lack of information. Measurement conversion is a non issue for people that heard of calculators. Simple step by step instructions and clear language. As for the mag. This gun was designed to be made in clandestine situations and Sten mags are very common and affordable. I would redesign it a bit for a more reliable mag such as an Uzi. In order to construct this, one MUST beware of the laws and its consequences. All in all, great read !!!

The book is rich in technical data and drawings, and the gun can be easily constructed by anyone who owns a machine shop. if you DO NOT have a machine shop nor know someone who does, DO NOT buy the book, because you won't be able to take anything good out of it except a good and complicated reading.
