For the other 50%, dumbass pukes, who have 'I didn't go far enough in life' syndrome that feel like they need to insult others on the Internet because of an idea, just to feel like a man...you also have my thanks because you remind me of how refreshing and rare it is to actually get some useful info from someone who isn't just burping out shit onto a keyboard and hitting "reply to thread" Yes you have my thanks, and also my pity. Keep discouraging people from learning. The real professionals will step in and pick up your slack.

I got what I need. We're done here.

glad you got what you think you needed...

but think you missed the entire point of this place...

too bad...

you might reread the posts.. with the outlook that the lighthearted comments were just that and no evil was intended..

sounds like you might be too thin skinned to survive this crew...

your loss... many of those same guys could have taught you a lot....

I hope the CNC guy is licensed as a firearms manufacturer. Or he at least lets the OP press the start and stop buttons on the machine.

Yes, and he has to send the new member package back also, postage paid.

Talking

Well....

there are a lot of ways and variations in generating G-Code and setting up fixturing.. not to mention the sequencing of cuts...

Some good.. Some... Not So Much...

even if you have prints and or 3D files...

All dependent on the experience and skill of the CNC machinist/programmer, capability and condition of equipment/tooling..etc.. etc...

likely one or more of the "Dumbass Pukes" around here might have been able to give very useful advice on how to get past the bumps and stumbles involved..

but would not expect anyone to respond positively after the Doc's juvenile behavior....

This story ain't over yet...................

So, out of curiosity...

I know on a long gun, the receiver is the part that's technically the 'gun'. What part is it on a pistol like the one in this thread? The frame?


Also, what parts of weapons are required to be manufactured by a licensed gunsmith and one who is not? I see a lot of accessories floating around in the world, and I've already been approached to modify a couple--a mount for a flashlight to be specific. While I see no harm in enlarging the diameter of the clamp, is that something that could get a fella in trouble for doing it without a license?

In this case, the frame is the firearm. There are a couple of pistols where this is not the case. I think SIG has one where the "guts" or sub-frame drops into the lower shell so the grip/frame covering is just an accessory. The KEL-TEC PF-9 is similar. The serial number is part of the insert.

On rifles, the receiver or lower is generally the firearm, but not always. The FN SCAR upper is the firearm.

Individuals can manufacture their own firearms for their own use, but there are restrictions on selling them. Otherwise you have to be licensed as a manufacturer to make the firearm portion. Anyone can make barrels, slides, triggers and whatnot.

On another note, you have to be a licensed gunsmith to do most any work on a firearm, including cleaning and adjusting, if you do it for pay. Yes, you can make parts (aside from the receiver) and accessories all you want. But you can't install them. I don't think the ATF would be too worried if you helped someone bolt on an accessory as long as that wasn't something you did for a living.

EDIT: Note that BATF stands for the Bureau of Arbitrary Technical Findings, so many of the "rules" are subject to change on a whim and may be interpreted and enforced differently depending on their mood.

As far as you finding someone to do the CNC work, personally I think your full of bull shit and as sharp as crap on a cracker. You might be an educated man, but you lack most of what is needed to survive.

I'd hate to think your log in name mirrors what you are as I really pity your daily contacts, speaking as one dumbass puke to another that is.

Lw thank you for saying it.

And a futher definition of us trying to "save" the O.P.

I didn't care if the dam slide did shear off, and keep coming back
into O.P."s forehead.....wouldn't do that much hurting.

"Failure" is when the machine don't operate when needed....cause
it jammed.

Saving as in your bacon...
