I go from SD to Oceanside and Wildomar for work periodically, if timing works out I could grab them and deliver them to you, but I suspect you want to make the trip....

Hey everybody! Figured out the car situation... Bad news for some though! My wife and i are going to make a day of it and see the sights in oceanside but it will benefit the locals

If you are planning a face to face in oceanside at ARES call me or text me when i post the day of pickup. I will probably lose your number in the fifty or so messages i get a day if it wasnt included with payment.
3306320104. How does everyone feel if i ask for ID to verify face to face?

Can anyone tell me if you get a PM when payment is recieved or is it just done on the 1st post list? The only reason I'm asking is that I had just mailed a check this past saturday from NH regular USPS and then saw the post Monday stating it was to be closed on the 17th and those who still wanted in should send payments via overnight express and if money was not in hand the 17th you were "out" of the buy (very understandable). My worry is that being Christmas time and the fact the the USPS seems to have slipped a bit in recent years my check may not make it in time. I am now thinking that if my payment is not recieved by this friday I will send out another via overnight to ensure I get one

Thank you for any input and Fiferronald Thank you for doing this GB!

Thanks

What are the legalities of owning a self-made handgun. I'm new to guns and don't own any handguns, but have been eyeing 1911s. Do you still need an HSC? If not, I'd be down for one if I can get paid by the end of the week.

Funnybookz,

Read back through the thread, it has been covered. To be legal you will need to initially build it as a long barrel single shot (IIRC, YMMV).

I sent mine today, and im in placerville so it should be there before the weekend. It had better be, I want to start building it! Ive got the itch now, looking at a psl or dragunov kit for my next build. Love the cheap ammo for them. I enjoy building firearms more than shooting them now

Forgive me, I'm new.

After an hour and a half of reading through the WHOLE thread, I still didn't see anything about needing an HSC.

Looking forward to this and hopefully a build party. This will be a learning experience for me, as I said I'm new to all of this. I learn better hands on, which is why I'm really interested in participating in this.

You do not need HSC for this Paperweight as it is not a firearm.

I meant once you have completed it and it is an operable firearm.

Once it is completed by YOU, you can serialize it and register it with your FFL. I believe you do need a HSC if you go that route. But most will likely not serialize it and keep it as is.

Calif has a voluntary registration form, maybe that's what you're referring to.

So if I'm not serializing it (which I didn't plan on), and there is no paperwork, registration required, why would you need to initially build it as a long barrel single shot? How would anyone know if I did?

HSC is only needed when a handgun is transfered to you. an 80% is not a firearm so you don't need the HSC to receive it.

HSC is only needed when a handgun is transfered to you. no transfer occured when you completed it so no HSC needed.

how do you do that. do you transfer it to the FFL and then he DROSes it back to you?

yes, because the law requires it. it is illegal to manufacture an unsafe handgun, but dimensionally-compliant single-shot handguns are exempt from that law.

doesn't matter if they know or not. you still have to comply with the law.

So, basically, you just have to build it so with a long barrel and single shot, then you can dismantle it and build it into a semi-auto capable of using a multi-round magazine?

Sorry for the annoying questions, like I said, I'm new to this. I just want to know what I may be getting into before I send any money out for it.

Seems like more work than what it's worth. Spend extra money to build a single-shot then convert it... man our gun laws suck.

Go look at the conversation starting at post 219 in this thread, the legalities are covered in that and the next page of posts.

Doing some poking I found these:
http://www.beckhamdesign.com/khxc/in...SBushingWrench
http://e-sarcoinc.com/451911barrel7roto.aspx
http://www.gunclips.net/co1945cal7ba.html

The barrels are out of stock, and I have no idea how log or if the will be back in stock. Anyone else have a source for an inexpensive 7" barrel to build with? Also is there an interest in going in on a barrel and sled for build purposes? Poss one person buys them, builds, does a bill of sale to the next guy for $5 less? FWIW I am in San Diego.

From the questions you're asking, I would actually recommend NOT building a your own firearm (especially a 1911).

It's not just "drill here, cut here, put part A into hole B" There is a lot of fitting and headache that will come with assembling your own 1911.

http://how-i-did-it.org/1911-project/index.html

To give you an idea. Once you finally get the 80% and have all the parts and tools on hand, it might take you as long as a month or two just to get it fit and finished, maybe even longer if you're not mechanically inclined. Even longer if you forgot to buy that one SO VERY IMPORTANT PART. Even longer if you lost/break/disfigure that SO VERY important part.

In fact, you won't save any money either. Because its cheaper to just buy a rock island armory 1911 (used) than it is to build the Rudius 1911 using the cheapest parts available.

That said, if you want a custom 1911, particularly one that you want to customize yourself. This is one of the more economical routes to go. If you want a project to keep yourself busy for a while, this is also a nice way to go.

Agreed with the face to face exchanges, if I went to meet up and pick mine up and some one had already grabbed it, I might be irritated just slightly, so any way to i.d. someone to make sure the get their items I'm down for.

Thanks for the info, everyone. That's why I'm here... to learn.

Yeah, greenbox, thanks. It definitely sounds like more work than I'm capable of right now. I appreciate the heads up.
