    some of these go beyond improvised… custom cut metal and welds and such..

    If you're brave enough to fire some of these weapons you don't need a weapon

    Dude is 22 a homemade railgun? That's badass. Almost totally silent but I imagine it can't shoot many bullets.

    first one says: 80 years old hämeenlinnalais engineer developed a machine gun out of drill, it has a firerate of 420 rounds per minute and uses 22cal ammunition.

    some of these actually look reasonably well produced, maybe not as flashy as professionally made guns but still something that you could probably rely on.

    I bet more than a few of these are from central/south america. I have no proof, just a hunch.

    Some are well made, but man if you make a gun without a trigger guard you are asking for it.

    the british sten machine gun was actually designed so that you could make one out of common pipe fittings. #11 looks like one of these

  12. […] Probably Not a Good Idea Dept.: homemade improvised weapons.  Look, I’m not saying they don’t look awesome — they do — but come on guys.  This isn’t The Road.  It’s not Mad Max.  You don’t need to make a shotgun/hacksaw/blowtorch combo in your garage just yet.  (thebrigade) […]

    Its sort of cool, but I don't see what's particularly "improvised" about a commercially manufactured set of brass (ok steel) knuckles with a corkscrew attached!

    Also the Kalashnikov in #6 may have been assembled in some home garage, but it appears to be largely comprised of commercially manufactured parts.

    On the other hand, the pistol (or is it a submachine gun?) in #8 is pretty intriguing. I'd love to know more about it. Ditto for the pistol in 20 which looks like a homebuilt version of an open slide Beretta/Walther design.

    In general it would be great to see some explanation of each weapon, including how it functions (ie caliber, etc) where it was made or captured, by whom, and under what circumstances.

    Per WIKI, the ugly zip gun in # 24 was manufactured in New Delhi India. Cheap cobbled together handguns, apparently are fairly common in poor India.

    In general, if you like this sort of thing, you can find images of all sorts of ingenious crude firearms just by doing a Google or other search engine search for "Zip guns".

    The Sten design in particular (a few examples listed above) lends itself to a robust submachine gun capable of being assembled in any garage in a limited amount of time out of readily available metallic tubing and other cheap parts.

  15. I think OSHA would give all of these it's stamp of approval!! Looks safe….If not, Hey its natural selection at work. too old.

    #25 was built as "art," about improv weapons. The artist got in trouble for trying to sell it, because it theoretically could fire.
