"homemade" single shot

this pistol is apparently homemade. i remain skeptical about that, but it is always possible. go to (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links) to view some odd and interesting guns. i am currently working on a semiauto pistol design but would love to begin adding single shot pistols and rifles to my collections of designs. message me or leave a comment of a single shot firearm that you think would fit nicely on my site or if you would just like to make a suggestion for a change on my site. thank you!!

SPAM ALERT.

Ladies and Gentlemen, fellow shooting enthusiasts. This new member has two posts. The first yesterday, introducing himself, and stating his interest in home made firearms and design thereof. The second today advertising his own website. There is not much on it yet, as it is obviously very new.

It does contain however, a form for subscribing to a newsletter that, as yet, appears to be a non-existant weekly newsletter.

I have advised the moderators of my suspicions. If this gentleman is genuine then I apologise unreservedly. His future posts will be a guide to this. In the meantime 'Caveat emptor'.

Harry

Arrowstone,

I, too, apologize if I am wrong. But whenever I see a site showing how to build a fully automatic weapon I get a little hinky. Single shots, ok. but machine guns.........slippery slope my friend. sure to get you on "a list". or create one.

I had one sorta like that as a kid (my Mom bought it for me at the local hardware store).  It was a Stevens "Diamond" model in .22 LR with a 6" barrel and a broken latch replaced with a bent-up "bobby pin".  It wasn't actually a semi-auto, but the latch would release itself  after the shot, drop the barrel, and eject the case neatly onto my wrist, ready to load the next cartridge.
