It wasn't my intention for this thread to veer into verboten areas, my apologies. So I'll just finish with this . . .
I wasn't the one who originally posted up the plan on the other forum but it did pique my curiosity.
I personally would avoid building this as a firing 'whatever' and made that clear, others disagreed.
My contribution was that "If it were me, I would only build it as a signal gun that couldn't fire projectiles." And that was pretty much the end of my participation. That thread has since slipped into oblivion.
FWIW: My idea was to cut a chamber for .22 nail gun blanks (loud even at low power, easy to get), with a undersized bore ahead of the chamber that a .22 bullet could not pass through, which would open up beyond that point to give the appearance of a full sized bore.
As of now I have no plans to actually do this.
I don't often bare my soul, it's ugly and tends to frighten people.
