As is becoming quite obvious, my love for correct measurements strikes again. In volume 2, the MAC one, on the upper receiver the bottom slot is given as being as 140mm long. This is an impossibility as it begins 80mm in... on a 220mm piece... The correct measurement approximation is 120mm... However 110mm should work just well. Anyone with open bolt knowledge, if they could pop over to my Luty thread to put my mind at ease about some of his measurements?

The Khyber Pass Pistol looks a lot like the 38. Special rifle I made from scrap.

Ooooh, my photo is famous now! On page 20 of the Scrap Metal STEN, the second picture on the page, of the casing on the bolt face, is from my Sten build thread; halfway down page 5.

I wonder who is the author? Must be someone we know.I like the 38 special "Kyber" homemade small arm. Any chance that we could see some pics of the breech area ?

maybe, but I do alot of google image searches when looking for random things sometimes (makes for some interesting tangents) and see some of my own pics pop up from build threads, or other's that I recognize from weaponeer.
It could be as simple as it popped up when he looked for "sten bolt face"

My bet would be on definetly somebody on these few famous gsmithing forums, I dont know if hes a poster or a lurker.

But researching who he is and "tracking him down" would accomplish nothing since it is better to respect his wish to remain anonymous.

Apparently, he listenes to the wishes and criticisms of his "books", since the last one was dealing with the fact of the extremely light bolts in one of his ingram type builds (so he proposed tungsten weights), a  flaw that was discussed with a big warning on some forums.

It would not surprise me to see the breech area photo in some of the next books (if they come out)

@ blurrededge..
when I saw the nice pics of a stenbolt in the 'scrapmetal sten' I thought it was likely from here..
so I had a look at the build...wow ! that is a well made sten.

as for the M-11 clone.. gee with a 220 gram bolt it would fire like...
2000 rounds per minute ?? thank the lord for tungsten.

the scrap metal pistol looks kinda crappy but a really interesting way to go at it. i think a nicer built version would be cool.
.....loving the scrap metal series.

i also found the scrap metal series while googling for usefull stuff (on scribd) I have the M-11 pt1 and pt2 ..the sten and the pistol.

It would fire like only 1 round per minute, since the case would probably explode on the recoil and jam the whole thing.

But, since these plans have a very non-firing, model looks and feel to it (drilled stubby "barrel"), that proposed bolt was more of a dummy, just to fill the space for the bolt.

If anyone was to build from this series, I suppose lot of handfitting and mods would need to be done to make it work properly

agreed Zuzzy..
the non-firing model is meant to be that way so that only ppl with a bit of skill can see what needs filling in to get it working.
luty does a similar thing with omitting the sear catch point on his plans.. so you have to 'have a clue before you can build it'
(( I would do one in .32 first for a low stress test bed ))
the m-11 would need a FP and a 400 gram bolt (min) as well as a working barrel before you would string fire it.

also some of the dimensions are a bit funky- would need a close
look to see if the bolt travel was enough etc.
What is really good (IMO) about the scrap series is how the designer simplifies the FCG and receiver construction...as well as finding ways to improvise a telescopic bolt...too cool.

it is a real 'brain-storming' series. When I started looking at Luty's plans , the first thing I thought was 'wow he really simpilfies an smg' ....second thing I thought was 'hmmm how can I apply these ideas to a M-11 clone or a sten clone..
and then I saw the scrap metal M-11. (cue lightbulb over head)

and also- some of the scrap metal guns are so crappy looking that I start thinking how to make 'em neater..
lovin scrap metal series

Vol 9 is already here, someone posted a link in another thread.

I dont know who Professor Parabellum is but he is making a good work.

It would be nice to have a volume about homemade magazines, for those who live where its hard to buy a factory made one

Magazines are extremely difficult to make, even for professional manufacturers. History is littered w/ small gun companies that died as a result of having an insufficient supply of magazines - the Bren 10 being one of the most notorious.
