A little something I made about 5 years ago it's an 1873 Parrot rifle if I remember right. The wheels are solid oak banded with flattened copper pipe. It can't shoot because the vent hole isn't drilled through. About gun laws, I live in Canada and our laws differ from the States but we are still allowed restricted weapons etc. it's just tougher to get them up here.

I am super glad to find out I am wrong about not being able to bequeath home made guns to heirs!! That really motivates me to start building some guns, the joy of knowing I can pass them on to my children. As far as selling them if you didn't intend to sell them when you made them - wow, that blows me away. I guess the issue would be proving intent...dunno how you do that. But I'm grateful for the information and I do intend to go to the ATF website and try to check it out. Previous attempts to clarify various points of the law at the ATF website always left me a little mystified and uneasy - and I have twice sent letters to the ATF asking for clarification on a point, and they never responded. As in it's been several years now and they never responded. So, I guess they don't respond, or they didn't respond to the questions I asked - which regarded modern takes on muzzle loading and percussion caps, combining those with modern ways of building a gun. Anyway, thanks again - and that derringer is totally sweet, really nice work.
