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 !!!

This book is a very interesting read ! It thoroughly explains everything step by step how to manufacturer , assemble and use your new project . I would suggest otherwise for legal reasons (obviously depending on where you live) . For the people that live in a area where it is legal keep this in mind . Just because something is legal to do , DOES NOT MEAN IT IS SAFE .

for everyone else I would say there is two other reasons to get this book (besides building) :

#1 It will expand what you think is possible for you to build .
#2 A trump card for the gun control subject .

Read it , Enjoy it , but don't put yourself behind bars because of it .
