Has anyone made a mock reising 50? Or has one? Id like to make one but in 9mm but a little more simpler than the reising. Also with a tube not as big as a sten or other tube gun. any ideas?

no i dont, seen them on gunbroker for $3000+.  I would like to get a tube maby like an inch or inch and a quarter, lathe out a bolt with a bolt handle like a lanchester, a 16" sten or uzi barrel spot welded in to a trunnion then spot welded in to the reciever tube. dont know what kind of mag to use, dont want it to be to fat, and the trigger will be simple.  also get some walnut, have a whole felled trunk at my dads house, and make a stock like the reising. 

just gathering some ideas, i leave for iraq this october, want to get a smithy lathe/mill when i get back, think i can refine it by the time i get back.

I was out of town this weekend, I brought some old magazines along. I was looking a Rifleman and they had an article on the Reising. I thought hey I want to build one of those. I thought I had an original idea then I get home and see this thread.

I was thinking of a long barrel paratrooper model, in .45acp.

Hey if this thread isn't dead, I am the proud owner of a model 50 and would be willing to share any of the critical dimensions you may need for a build.

Reising kits are EXTREMELY expensive (as somebody already mentioned), but since they already fire from a closed bolt (the resulting lightweight bolt is why they have such a high rate of fire), it seems that a semi-only build would be possible.

Let me know what I can help with.

P.S. All you bad guys out there that are reading this and thinking you can come by my house and steal my Reising are S.O.L., the gun is in the safe at my other house!

looking at a reising without seeing it fire gives you the impression its just another carbine from WW2, but it actually fires pretty fast.

the sad thing is it never really lived up to its potential. it was put into service in the pacific with the marines and got a bad reputation right away.

i would love to study this action and see how all the parts work together. it has a cylindrical hammer, which is kind of odd. i have not actually seen more than a few of the parts laying out.

The next time I take my Model 50 out and run it I'll get a video for you.

As for the parts and their interface/actions, you're right about the cylindrical striker, this feature is what makes the Reising run faster than the Thompson, the M3 Greasegun, the Mac10, and the Sten.

Since the gun fires from the closed bolt, it features a lighter and faster bolt with a relatively lightweight striker, and therein lies the problem that the Marines had with it at Guadalcanal...

The gun fires faster, but is more prone to stoppages because of its tight tolerances and susceptibility to dirt and fouling. I broke a mainspring with crud build up after just one hard day of shooting and learned my lesson right then... Clean the damn thing often!

So, in the jungles of the South Pacific island hopping campaign of WWII, the Marines didn't take the time (or have the time?) to learn what I learned in the relative comfort of the Arizona desert during that day of shooting, and when it came time for the Reising to face the combat reliability test in the hands of some New York guy that wasn't a gunsmith when it came to taking care of his firearm, it failed miserably.

Sadly, many of these fine guns now lie at the bottom of some Pacific island lagoons where they were unceremoniously dumped to make room for the slower, but more reliable, Thompson.

I forgot to mention that I have a Reising parts set minus the receiver (of course) and a stock.

So far, it's not for sale, but with the price of these things being what they are (as well as the relative scarcity!), I may put it on the market so I can buy something else. If there's enough interest, I might be coerced, just don't be shocked by the asking price...
