1. Pipe Shotgun
This beauty is in the Cleveland Police Museum and shows what some ingenious criminals thought up. There are plenty of instructional articles and videos online about how to make your own gun (like this one here). But, is it legal to make your own firearm?
In most cases, it is legal to make your own firearms. But, there are some exceptions. At the ATF.gov website, they write this: (Disclaimer: Always check your own states laws before proceeding!)
Q: Does an individual need a license to make a firearm for personal use?
No, a license is not required to make a firearm solely for personal use. However, a license is required to manufacture firearms for sale or distribution. The law prohibits a person from assembling a non–sporting semiautomatic rifle or shotgun from 10 or more imported parts, as well as firearms that cannot be detected by metal detectors or x–ray machines. In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and advance approval by ATF. (source)
