You don’t really need big tech to build your own gun legally. There are multiple kits for everything from AR-15’s to 1911’s all over the internet. Virtually all of the guns you can make don’t require big tech at all. However, you will need some standard shop tools, a drill press is usually something required if you’re going to mill your own lower receivers like the ones we sell at American Made Tactical. Most people don’t have 3-D printers or their own metal shop, so most firearms, with a little research, can be made in your garage.
There are forums all over the internet with knowledgeable Americans interesting in building their guns and they usually have a wealth of knowledge they’re willing to share. Online forums are a great place to start your research. You can ask any of them and they will tell you that you definitely DO NOT need big tech to build your own guns at home. It’s a great hobby and there are infinite numbers of combinations you can create when you build firearms.
Basically, it’s all about research, research, research. You do what you can with what you have. And you can surely find a solution to fit your needs online. Of course, we suggest starting with some parts from American Made Tactical!
