The right to keep and bear arms is protected in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, which reads: A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. The Amendment was adpoted on December 15, 1791 and was influenced by the English Bill of Rights of 1689. It was then described as a right supporting the natural rights of self-defense, reistance to oppression, and the civic duty to act in concert in defense of the sate.
Part of the right to bare arms is the ability to manufacture your own arms - a right we have had despite federal regualtions on gun ownership.
This website was created to help you learn all you ever wanted to know about making your own ghost guns from 80 percent lower receivers to build unregisted weapons such as the AR15s, DPMS 308s, AK47's, Glocks/Spectre or 1911 handguns with new variations and build platforms in the works. Use the menu links above to learn, build and bare arms. Please share this page with your friends and family.
There has never been a better time to build your own weapons system. Other than owning an unregistered, unserialized rifle - it gives you an oppertunity to learn about the inner mechanics of your weapon that you don't get from buying a firearm at your local gun shop. Today there are paperweights available for AR15, DPMS308, AK47, Glock, 1911 and 10/22's and making your own firearm from one of these plaforms only requires an 80% jig fixture and tools. The tools required to build your own home made firearm are available at your local hardware store; drill press will do for most of these projects. After milling our your lower - you simply install a compatible lower parts kit (LPK) and Stock Kit, then add your upper receiver.
We occasionally offer educational and milling oppertunities for those looking to complete their own rifles. If you're interested in attending one of our educational workshops or free milling events - please subscribe to our newsletter.
DIY Weapons occasionally will hold a build party for individuals that want to come learn how to complete their lower receivers or frames into working (complete) lower receivers. These build workshops (or commonly referred to as build parties) are FREE due to statements released by the BATF regarding pecuniary gain.
Build workshops are usually held in Mission Viejo - California. We do not charge attendance fee's, however we do require you to RSVP you attendance to the next workshop. Lower receivers and/or frames are not sold by us during these events - and we do not allow them to be sold by anyone else. If you are attending one of these events please do not try to sell any 80% lowers or parts before, during or after the event.
Very basic knowledge of tools is recommended - but not required. We generally use these events to educate the public on machining practices and build techniques. At the beginning of these events we have a group class and detailed instruction followed by an oppertunity for each individual person to complete their own receiver using our mobile or stationary cnc machine and shop tools. No one is permitted to complete a receiver for anyone else, and everyone participating must be 21 years or older and legally allowed to own a firearm.
