How to turn a paintball gun into a homemade 9mm “carbine” pistol!


Once again, I bring you another installment of “This is why it’s impossible to ban guns” because they’re just so darn EASY to make!

This guy made a home-made 9mm “carbine” pistol from:

* A paintball gun
* Random parts from a hardware store
* hacksaw, dremel, welder, drill press and hand tools


And of course using his brain. In fact, he even designed it from scratch! Check it out:

How to make a homemade 9mm “carbine” pistol from a paintball gun!

This is neat, because I’ve never built my own gun from my own design. But this guy did.

Talk about simple, but genius!

Pretty neat that he used a Taurus PT111 magazine for this pistol caliber “carbine” pistol build. Like he said, he thinks he can use Sig P226 mags.

Except for the little bit of welding, none of this looks that hard. Pretty neat.

Homemade Guns Are a Learning Process!

This is the same guy, and I found this other video of his, where he shows off all the homemade guns he has made in the past and how well they worked, what went wrong, etc. Some very SIMPLE designs here! Especially the bolt action ones.

Have You Ever Made Any Homemade Guns?

If so, I’d love to hear about it. Share your story in the comments!

  1. When I was about 16 we made zip guns from extendable car antennas,a block of wood , a spring loaded clothes pin , a rubber band. Worked good for what it was, at least till the bullet stuck in the barrel and the barrel would go flying. Only fired 22 cal. But if you had one and the other guy didn’t , it worked fine.

  2. Wow, what a great kid to have in your survival Group! I don’t think it can be classified as a pistol without an atf approved brace. So I hope he doesn’t go to any ranges where atf would pick on him for making an ‘illegal’ SBR?
    Also too bad he let his face get into the facial recognition data base. Because as soon as the final elements of the goernment’s plan to create a universal Nazi-style National I.D. card with the biometric tracking. (RealI.D. Act of 2005 while we all were snoozing) They’ll no exactly where to find him and raid him.

    And Caleb, while you’re right about it being very hard to completely ban guns in terms of actually banning them out of existence in a free enterprise commodity oriented capitalist venue. It IS NOT, at this grim point in the ubiquitous proliferation of Police Statism, impossible to target focus on the relatively small number of True able bodied and liberty or death minded Patriots compared to the vast assortment of guns in private civilian hands.

    In fact, that’s the whole point of all the Surveillance State obsessive compulsiveness. All they ‘need’ to do is quickly round up the potential leadership and key elements of resourceful resistance and make serious examples out of them. Then the rest will fall like Australian, Canadian, and UK citizens…like perfect little leftist lemmings off the path of Freedom and off the cliff into the abyss of Communist style Totalitarianism.

    And they’ll do it all by making more and more useless but agenda based anti-Constitutional laws that will make everyone a criminal who automatically can’t have a gun then, because of the original ‘motherfucker of all gun control laws, the gun Control Act of 1968.

    100 days into our ‘Savior’s presidential crucifixion, and we still haven’t repealed any gun control laws yet?
