Looks more like a cordless drill to me but it got the bloke five years, I guess he did not know his neighbour as well as he thought he did or more likely was just plain stupid.

In the US we can build our own guns for personal and folks do it all the time. It makes for wonderful Youtube entertainment. There are certain restrictions and machine guns generally are not allowed. However we cannot discharge firearms at the bedroom walls. That's pushing the envelope even in the US.

From the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) FAQ page
http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/index.htm

A7) Does the GCA prohibit anyone from making a handgun, shotgun or rifle?

With certain exceptions a firearm may be made by a nonlicensee provided it is not for sale and the maker is not prohibited from possessing firearms.

However, a person is prohibited from making a semiautomatic assault weapon or assembling a nonsporting semiautomatic rifle or nonsporting shotgun from imported parts. In addition, the making of an NFA firearm requires a tax payment and approval by ATF. An application to make a machinegun will not be approved unless documentation is submitted showing that the firearm is being made for a federal or state agency.

[18 U. S. C. 922 (o), (r), (v), and 923, 27 CFR 178.39, 178.40, 178.41 and 179.105]

Why is it that when I look at that photograph I think of a can of Strongbow, yellow fingers and some Rizla papers? :hmm:

He got 5 years because he made it. If he had found it in the street and used it he would have got less. If he had called himself Psycho he would probably have gotten probation on the grounds of diminished mental capacity.

"Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime" as Tony put it but he didn't mean financial crimes. The punishment has to fit the crime, innit

Dunno but it says
After his neighbour called police, officers discovered a stash of weapons and ammunition when they searched Cracknell’s flat including an air rifle and a tin of adapted bullets.
Added 2" to my weapon and my hit rate went up ;)

I would suspect that he adapted blank ammo to fit in his cordless drill look a like.

Perhaps he should have moved to the US and got a job at the company that builds these pistols. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

$620 for that!? interesting collectors piece but it seems a bit much to spend on a pistol you wont want to actually fire, and which was intended to cost $32 (equivalent)
